Default Receiving a Rifle from Brazil

My friend recently returned from Brazil and his father had inherited a Model 92 Winchester rifle (made in 1919). He wants my friend to have it. My friend is a new U.S. citizen and current gun owner. Is there a way he can receive the rifle from his father in Brazil?

Can a foreign national legally bring into the U.S. a hunting firearm (rifle) while they are visiting?
OP, before looking at all the avenues, you might want to make sure that the barrel is at least legal length. A good number of those that were exported back then had 14" barrels. If not, I'm not sure of that process.

Need an import permit from the feds. I bought a shotgun in Turkey and imported it but took advantage of some laws streamlining the process for American military personnel returning from deployment. I still had to leave it at U.S. Customs and wait for ATF to approve the import permit before I could have it picked up.
