Ok, gunshop FUD time.

My local shop told me that there was recently a federal law enacted that prohibited the import of foreign made firearms. The parts can be made somewhere else, but they have to be shipped to and assembled in the US and thats why I cant get a Tikka T3 Varmint now.

This sounds way to ridiculous to be true... so it actually might be.

Did I miss something or is this gunshop retarded?

They probably wanted to con you into buying something they already had in stock.

It's just easier and cheaper for them to start up manufacturing locally (like beretta and others) because they no longer have to deal with importer middle-men, stamping costs, shipping, duties, taxes, etc...

Gunshop is retarded.

Buy the rifle from buds ( or elsewhere ) and use a transfer dealer:
