Bringing Scopes Home through US Border (Post-Trump)

Has anyone had any issues bringing scopes home from the US since Trump has been in power?

Some friends tried to bring night-vision back and didn't do too well, but I understand that night vision is a bit more extreme than a rifle scope.

Cheers, Lewie

From what I know - you wonít have any problem as long as it is not Military equipment. Regarding the Thermal and Night Vision G2+ - now thatís a different matter - most likely a no go† Embarrassed

I had a mate bring in a Swarovski for me pre-Trump
Best to avoid any reference to the word "Tactical"
Use "Target" instead

Pre- or post-Trump, no difference at this point.

Any obviously "hunting" scopes will be fine. It's when you get into the military/ tactical end of the spectrum that things could go wrong.
