    Can anybody tell me anything about International Military Antiques? I have an acquaintance looking at importing an item from them into New Zealand and wants to make sure these guys are legit.

    They can be over priced, extremely in some cases, but they are legit. I have bought from them before with no issues. Though I've not tried to import to a foreign country...

    I, too, have purchased from them on a number of occasions (within the USA) and was pleased with both the transactions and products.

    FWIW ...

    Another vote of confidence for IMA. Have a couple Martini-Henry's w/bayonetts on the wall from them and they were great to deal with. My second one came looking almost pristine...which was awsome but the barrel was bent a bit. Would have made a very nice display gun but I wanted to shoot it...so a quick Email and sent it back without problems. The replacement rifle is straight and shoots well so they try hard to do good by their customers.

    I bought an Enfield repro bayonet from them that didn't fit any of my Enfields. I left a comment to that effect on their website, and it was scrubbed. Looking around, there's no negative comments. I don't know if you think omission is a deceptive business practice, per say, but i won't be giving them any more of my business.

    They ship overseas all the time, I have friends in Australia & the UK who have purchased 'Nepal cache' guns from them & are very happy. With the untouched cache guns, keep your expectations low (as per the IMA description on their site) & you won't be disappointed.

    I bought some ancient and uncommon magazines from them, fairly priced and in good used condition under tons of oil and grease applied in the 1930s. They shipped soon after receiving my order and were well packed. Just in case these guys: http://www.ima-usa.com

    If that had happened to me and I was unsuccessful at resolving the Issues with them I would never buy another thing from them.
