Does the Thawing of Relations With Russia Herald a New Firearms Market?

I wonder if with the new Trump Administration and the very possible thawing of relations with Russia we will again start to see Russian firearm imports again? More Mosin's, more AK's, more Saiga's, etc. and the ammo that feeds them. I'm not pro-Russian by any means but this can only be a good thing for firearms enthusiasts and for business in general.

From my understanding, the arms embargo imposed by the US in retaliation for the Crimea thing prevented any new firearms imports coming from Russia. Congress may have a say so in any lifting of sanctions against Russia regardless what Trump wants, especially in light of the recent election "scandal", but there are certainly better conditions for a change now then there was under Obama.

Are you forgetting that there is a group called CONGRESS that does NOT share POTUS exuberance about relations with Russia? Its not even certain that the REPUBLICANS agree with Trump!

No, I didn't forget that, if you bothered to read my post.
