PERSONAL 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 both to private individuals; and to fellow FFLs and Law Enforcement agencies small volumes of firearms (for over 10 firearms, see commercial importing) of firearms and ammunition on their behalf. For SOTs with a law-enforcement demo-letter, we can import NFA items for you. If you need firearms exporting, please see our Firearms Exporting services.
The due to a variety of Executive Orders and ATF rulings, certain firearms, such as "assault weapons", NFA items, US Military Surplus rifles, "non-sporting" firearms and their barrels, etc; are not eligible for import for private citizens. If you have a question about an item you wish to import, please contact us, and we will be happy to advise you of your options.

*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.
