I think it may fall under ITARs as they are used under military contract. Violating ITAR can be really bad juju with US Customs if you get caught.

That and not sure what Irelands laws are as far as importation of firearm parts, but I imagine they're not super friendly. I recall someone from Norway or Sweden asking about it on here awhile back. Think it came out to be a "No".

My belief is that if you get tangled up with a country that has had decades-long major issues with terrorism like Ireland has, it could get really complicated for you. I wonder if you called a company like say Brownells and innocently asked them if THEY can ship to Ireland, you wouldn't get some down to earth information about what is legal?

My advice to anyone overseas is to look into a forwarding service like http://www.usabox.com/

They would be more familiar with the rules and regulations.

Ireland itself doesn't appear to be on general list of countries requiring permits for exportation. However, a firearm part valued at over $100 or any optic that could be used for tactical purposes might still require a permit.

A stock for a hunting rifle could simply be considered "plastic sporting goods," but a stock for a military style rifle might be restricted.

Maybe, but if I'm up here ordering from a Canadian address, Brownells won't even sell me a $35 firing pin for accurizing my .22, and that's with it being shipped to a US address.

The USPS can probably tell you. I shipped a SAGE clip guide mounted short rail to Sweden a couple months ago. The USPS agent asked me all about it and he filled out the paperwork (a very short form). It was cheap and got there in about a week. Cleared Swedish customs...no issues. Ireland may or may not have laws similar to Sweden? The buyer should know?

I hope Obama and Holder slept in this morning or at least don't read this post before they have their coffee. I'd hate to have "the goons" come through my front door before I have mine!

I don't see any problems with a stock/chassis being sent to Ireland nor anywhere else for that matter (unless, of course, the U.S. has sanctions in place against said destination country as oftentimes these sanctions prevent trade of any sort).

Stocks are not regulated... as they contain no firearm components...

Read about United Parcel Service/UPS U.S.-to-Ireland mailing restrictions here: http://www.ups.com/ga/CountryRegs?loc=en_US

Read the Royal Mail's restriction list here: http://www.royalmail.com/personal/help-and-support/Tell-me-about-Restricted-Goods-overseas

Here's the Irish themselves discussing this very same topic: http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=66232299

These mailing restrictions pertain to all other mail carriers as well. As stated, mailing a stock/chassis is acceptable. Thus, mailing a SAGE chassis to Ireland (from the U.S.) is LEGAL and achievable.
