Has anyone tried to import directly?
I'm thinking of importing a Theoben.
How do I go about this?
Is it worth the trouble?
You can do a search on the topic, it has been discussed on this site. Guys like Guido and Boondock are the experts. It would depend on what your definition of "trouble" is. Depending on the rand/dollar or rand/pound rate, it may be worth quite a few rand! The issue comes in when you have problems with the rifle you imported and you do not have a friendly gunshop around the corner to return it to.
