COMMERCIAL FIREARMS IMPORTING
As the holder of Type 08, Importer of Firearms, Federal Firearms License; and Class 01, Importer of NFA Firearms, Special Occupational Taxpayer; TXMGO is able to offer our services to fellow FFLs and Law Enforcement agencies to import large volumes (10+ firearms) of firearms and ammunition on their behalf.
From a bulk order of sporting shotguns to machine-guns, TXMGO is able to facilitate the importation of virtually any firearm or ammunition you need. Furthermore with our importer Federal Explosives Licensees, we are able to import a wide variety of fuses for various munitions (hand-grenades, 40mm grenades, mortars, etc) for fellow FELs.
If you are interested in using TXMGO as your importer, please contact us, and we will discuss your options.
We charge a minimum amount of $750 for commercial import, or 3% of the Invoice Value, whichever is greater, for an unlimited amount of firearms.

*ATF Requires that all firearms imported the the United States be marked with the Importer's information. Firearms will be marked as inconspicuously as possible with "TXMGO" and "Dickinson, TX" below.
** General range of Tariffs.
*** All firearms imported from abroad are subject to an excise tax of 10% on handguns and 11% on long-guns. As TXMGO is only acting as the importer, not the seller or purchaser; the person receiving the guns in the U.S. is liable for payment of the excise tax. We require a signed statement from the person receiving the firearm, that they are aware that they are personally liable for the excise tax, and are required to pay that amount directly to ATF. However for an additional fee, TXMGO will pay the excise tax on the customer's behalf.
**** Various fees are assesseted by CBP for importing items into the US, these include the Merchandise Processing Fee (MPF), of 0.3464%, with a minimum of $25 and a maximum of $485; if mailed or brought in by air. If brought in by sea, a Harbor Maintenance Fee (HMF) of .125 percent is collected. Additionally many airlines, and ports assess a processing fee, storage fee, or other charge. Any extra storage fees incurred due to TXMGO's oversight or mistake, will not be charged to the customer. However any storage fees arising from circumstances beyond our control, such as Customs not releasing an item, will be billed to the customer.
