I'm caught in an unusual situation. I'm Canadian, I collect certain pistols, and I found a Steyr M7 Roth-Steyr in the U.S. I've done this sort of thing before, through a company that holds an FFL in the U.S. and can legally bring guns into Canada. This time the export permit was denied by the U.S. State Department because of a prohibition against Steyr products. No matter how much I pointed out that we're talking about one pistol produced in 1913, the State Dept. rep. was adamant that the law prohibited this transaction. As I read the regulation on line, it seemed clear that the prohibition was to end at the end of 2007, but the State Dept. told me it's still in effect. Does anyone have any direct knowledge of this situation?
