Was thinking of buying this, but wondering if US Customs is clamping down hard on things from China at the moment?

To me, they dont look like genuine PLA - Im not in the USA but since alot of stuff comes from china I would imagine there arent too many extra measures

I don't think you will get too much more trouble than importing any other ration into the US. US Customs are generally well known for confiscating rations or opening them and taking certain components, so there is a chance the ration may get confiscated regardless of where it comes from. My advice would be to read up threads regarding stuff like that here and see if you are willing to take the risk. Like koreyyy1 said, they don't look like PLA rations. To me they look like Chinese made Civilian Rations. Hope this helps.

Eddo36 90% chance anything bought on Ebay will get searched and confiscated. Just a heads up. Trade with fellow collectors on this site. Finger crossed. Cheers, Safariman1
