Incoming freight is always a wild card.
Our last large shipment, US Customs detained our shipment for over a month, charged us [around] $5-6K for them to inspect, store, and repack our goods, not a single violation.
Never a single violation in many years.
These additional costs, if any, must be divided into the incoming product, impossible to predict until after the shipment actually arrives.
The Micro Uzi were in very nice used condition, closed bolt, with folding stock.
Thanks, bob bowman

I simply lost count.
We torch cut over 1K guns, outside, in the freezing rain, over 3 full days, in the Alps.
Not as much fun as one might think, for many, many reasons.
We kitted Polish, Romanian, and Serb guns+?
Some under-folders, some wood stock, some RPKs, some ?
I am still as sick as I can ever remember, even now that I am back in the states.
This working for a living is not all its cracked up to be either.
Thanks, bob bowman
