Hasn't anything to do with being fond of it or not. Firearms, parts and accessories are subject to strict regulations regarding export. A seller needs to have the appropriate export licenses in order to be able to ship stuff overseas, and there are restrictions re: the receiving countries as well. The permits are not cheap, which is why mainly companies are able to export "firearms and other tactical products". Private persons aren't allowed to export - shipping a mere rifle scope to abroad might render a visit from Homeland Security and hard time behind bars.

That said, you will most likely to be able to find a vendor who doesn't care and ships overseas anyway. I've been lucky a few times when I've been scavenging the net for stuff I need. Only problem there is that the shipment may be seized by customs or mail carrier, and you're out of money and product.

Now, a folding stock for a vintage firearm, intended to be utilized in a toy may sound like one thing, but if the law regards it as a "tactical product" (which, essentially folding stocks are) then you're s**t out of luck.

I have imported firearm-related stuff from USA before. Today, I'd focus on finding stuff I want within the EU instead - a bit closer to home and mostly hassle-free. Within EU won't help much if you're in Norway, but at least the source is closer, geographically. If de-acs are legal to own and license-free in Norway, then I'd look for Sterlings and parts in UK instead. There are several de-ac vendors there. Also, check e-gun.de, a German auction site for firearms and accessories.
I am altering the canon. Pray I don't alter it any further.
Minor plot holes and strange coincidences are no match for a good story by your side, kid.
