Emailed duder & got a response:

HI, It is impossible to import Russian SKS because it is NOT on an approved item according to the Russian Federation Trade agreement . I know u have seen other type SKS imported like YUGO ROMAINIAN Albainian But there are a number of countries that do not qualify and especially the RUSSIAN SKS .
This is the knowledge I have and belive it is uptodate BUT IF YOU have learned something New let me know . Thanks Tony

Subject: New production SKS rifles? please & thank you


I was reading on firearmstalk forum about some "new production" SKS & VEPR rifles. Your business name was linked as an importer of these rifles. I subsequently found your website listing the VEPR rifles. The VEPR is a fine rifle, but i was wondering if you had any plans to import the "new production" SKS rifles from that same company. I was sent a link to their website & was very happy to see what appears to be newly produced SKS rifles.

I have an old SKS and love it, but if new SKS rifles are available for sale, i would like to know a price range or predicted availability.

Thanks for your time

he may be right. the import/export restriction isnt always stemming from US laws.

100% correct!! This all started w/ the Clinton administration. No Chinese, No Russian. Former satellite states are fine. That is the reason the Saiga was invented. It is a sporting rifle.

Yup, the manufacturer website lists them as products, but doesn't say they are exportable to the U.S. The importer says they can't be imported.
