Hey there! I’m Ignacio Villegas from Chile, and I just gotta share my experience with Rob in getting a rifle over to my country. Honestly, at first, I thought it would be a huge hassle, but man, Rob was amazing. He always took the time to break down all the technical and legal stuff for me, guiding me through each step. With his help, what seemed like a distant dream became a reality. Rob is a wizard in this field! If anyone out there needs to import firearms into their country, trust me, Rob’s your go-to guy. Huge thanks for everything, Rob!

As an American living in Australia, I expected a certain level of difficulty and documentation in bringing my grandfather’s pistol from my mother’s safe in Louisiana to my own in Queensland. But I was astounded at how all the difficulties seemed to be on the USA side.
Several gun exporters that I contacted flat out refused. Several others quoted me fees of more than $5000 and one noted that he wouldn’t proceed unless I had a consignment of at least 50 firearms to export. This went on for nearly a year.
Feeling nearly ready to give up on the whole thing, I found Rob’s website on the internet and tried one last time. How I wish I’d contacted him first! Immediate, clear, simple instructions, with all forms provided to me. Very reasonable costs, and no need for a giant shipment. Rob was very responsive, and always wrote back within 24 hours.
I would absolutely recommend Rob’s business to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, honest, fair businessperson to facilitate this kind of transaction. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Hello my name is Patrick and I live in French Polynesia.
Importing a weapon from France is quite difficult.

I made contact with Rob, who gave me the procedure to follow and the delays in acquiring American documents.
Once I received the French documents, I had them translated and sent to Rob.
Then everything went as specified in the procedure. Rob sent me the tracking of the package that I was able to follow.
The package arrived very quickly with all the necessary documents for customs clearance.
Everything was great.

I recommend you contact Rob, I will work with him again without delay.
I thank you Rob and if I have the opportunity to go throughMesa I will not hesitate to come see you.

Thank you.

It is no exaggeration to say that they excel in exporting the firearms in US, accurate, quick and conscience
and they have much skilled at knowledge of the firearms and various procedures.

I especially admire President Robert Bagnato and we can entrust all procedures to him at ease.
I willingly recommend them to all shooters and hunters in various foreign countries who are thinking of importing the firearms.
I swear it’s nice to do business with Bagnato Enterprises.

“I wanted to import a shotgun that was unavailable in Australia. Every Australian importer I contacted quoted me a very high import charge and 6 to 12 months lead time. I contacted Rob and within 2 days he organized the cheapest price for the shotgun on the internet in the USA I could find. As soon as I sent him the import papers he had it shipped to Australia in 7 days at a very competitive price. He promptly answered every email question I sent him and electronic payment was simple and quick. Rob’s firearm export service is second to none and I have recommended him to all my friends.”

I was in the US on non-immigrant visa and it was time to move back to Europe. When searching for an agent that would be able to arrange an export permit for the AR and pistol I had legally purchased in the US, I approached a number of companies – but only Rob knew what he was talking about. He was able to very quickly respond to all the questions I had and made the entire process a breeze.

The actual approval was arranged without any hickups during a few days. When it came to the actual departure, everything well really smoothly thanks to Rob’s pre-work. What seemed like a rather unique and complex request ended up as a routine task!

Thanks again and take care!

I purchased a Steyr Factory 3x optic for my Styr AUG A3 in the US. Unfortunately the freight forwarder I had it sent to let me know that an export license was required to export even non-essential firearm parts and accessories – which they did not have.
Luckily I found Firearms Export INC. Mr. Robert Bagnato was very professional, helpful and forthcoming throughout the entire process of acquiring an export permit for my optic. Rob’s service was excellent and I can highly recommend him as first choice exporter of firearms and firearm parts.
I don’t know what I would have done without Firearms Export INC. My Optic would probably still sit at my freight forwarder’s warehouse.
Rob got things settled very fast – even faster than I expected. I cheerfully picked up my new optic from post office half an hour ago. He also packed it very safely and everything was in perfect order. The Firearms Export INC business card I found in the parcel looks pretty neat and is in my wallet now btw.

Can’t wait to mount my new optic onto my rifle and take it out to the shooting range to have some fun.

Have my thanks for your great service, Rob.

We will surely do business again.
