hello all! I stationed in Japan with the AirForce, and I picked up 3 shotguns that I want to ship back to the states, but I hear that the guys over at the Alcohol Tabacco and Firearms place are insanely picky on the paperwork.

so I need to positively ID all 3 Shotguns. I've heard the Japanese call the guns by different names than we do, and ATF wants our names.

the first one I am pretty sure is just an SKB Royal Light, only reason I am posting it too is to see if there is any other info you might have on it.
here's links to pics:

The second shotgun looks like an SKB also, but that's all I can tell about it. there is no model designation stamped on it at all.
*Edit* I did some more digging, and I think that this one might be an Ithaca SKB Model 280E 12ga*
**Edit again* could be a 200E*

and now for the Enigma, it doesn't matter what I search on the internet, I can't find anything on this gun. the only info I found on it was in another thread on this site: http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?p=9336
but here's pics of it:

so, for the first one, anything else you might be able to tell me about the gun beyond SKB Royal Light.

the Second one, anything you could tell me would be awesome, like I said, all I know is that it's an SKB, but it doesn't even say that anywhere on the gun.

and the third one, I haven't got a clue! anything you could tell me!

Thanks!

I think someone is giveing you a snow job, I would contact an importer in the US. When US customs open those guns, I'm thinking the paperwork better say exactly what's on the guns, not what Driggy, Bushrod or some other screen name sys they are..Bushrod

AF medic: I brought back from ITALY in 1980 With a ATF form 6. A 12ga EMILO RIZZINI O/U the shotgun was made for the EUROPEAN market & was not imported into the UNITED STATES. I had the ITALIAN model name on the ATF paper work. The gun cleared customs at PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL PA. I had no problems. I would put the actual gun model name on the ATF FORM not what the AMERICANS CALL IT.
