    Thanks for the narrative.

    I need the details of the person/s you sold the stock and pistol grip to as I need to follow up on these parts seeing as you could not supply them. I can then amend that firearm in our system and on your licence to reflect that it is now an A cat item. It will no longer be “linked” to you but will show up as having been possessed by you.

    Cheers


    /sigh
    Yeah, big sigh. I wonder if the AO actually knows the stock and pistol grip can be purchased by anyone without a FAL ? Probably not. Does sound like they're trying to make life difficult for you. Stick to your guns (ho ho ho) and follow the processes and keep it civil. Especially seeing it's in writing, which will help your cause should you need to escalate it higher up.

    Is this the same AO you mentioned (being extremely difficult) in a previous thread a few weeks ago? She sounds like a total bitch. Go to a different cop shop and get another AO to do it for you? My mate 20 mins drive away has similar retarded issues at Manakau, but my local at Akl central is an absolute pleasure.

    I sent her the guys details and she replied.
    Lucky @robh500 (Who I sold the stock to) is on the same page and was happy to talk to her.


    "Spoke with Rob. All good. I have now made that rifle into an A cat in our system and recorded this information on your licence along with your narrative and the images I took. (I let her take a pic of the lower with the A cat stock) It is no longer recorded as an MSSA and you can sell it to anyone with a firearms licence, no endorsement required.

    Thanks for getting the info to me quickly.

    Cheers."

    Whilst I would agree with you normally Pete, I actually need to sell the rifle and do not have time to argue the point unfortunately. Maybe you can swap your AR around a bit and see how you go?

    I feel like what she was told my PNZHQ was what to do if I was getting rid of my E cat endorsement and changing my guns to A cat. If that was the case I would understand the process, but I still have another AR on my E cat so why would I have to had in the stock and grip when I could use it on that freely?

    Yes Tommy, same AO, thing is, unlike you Aucklanders we only have one for the whole region.

    I swear it doesn't help not being in my 30's 40's +

    If it's the AO I'm thinking of we get on great.

    Cheers

    Arguing with an Engineer is like Wrestling a Pig in Mud.

    After awhile you realise the Pig loves it.
