    Sending a Sold Rifle (for dummies)

    Hi team,

    In need of sending a sold rifle. Can anyone explain in simple mans terms the process for me the seller and also the buyer?? Much appreciated.

    I have sent one through Fastways for bedding but not a sold item.

    Cheers

    the buyer needs your phone number, address, firearms licence number and expiry, email address, serial number, make and model.
    They go to the cop shop and fill out the form, the cop then emails a signed copy to the seller saying it's all good and then the seller can post it.

    They turn the forms around pretty quick like within a day

    Buyer goes to police station and fills out form which the arms officer signs and then emails to you (seller) , buyer will need your email address, full name, and licence details to add to form. You receive form, print it out, tuck it in with the rifle and send it on its way.

    The purchaser must front up to their local Arms Officer and complete the mail order form. Have your FAL handy.

    Mine didn't like the one I'd printed off and insisted I use their version

    The purchaser must provide the name and FAL number of the vendor, as well as their email address and ph#.

    I purchased a rifle recently this way. The AO had approved within three hours and contacted the vendor with their approval.

    We shipped c/o my local courier and only that earthquake slowed things down lol

    Fast ways are bloody useless, they are still running round trying to find my rifle (I have it already) as their tracking system seems to be a joke, apparently my rifle is somewhere between Rotorua and chch still. I will let them sweat it out a few more weeks before I let them know I have it. Only reason I managed to find it myself is because their courier just dumped it at one of the farm supply stores (was addressed to my home) in town, we don't even trade with that store but luckily I had spoken to a neighbor about my missing rifle and he spotted the package leaning against the wall at the store.

    Old man had a pistol sent to him by them also, he lives in north Otago and somehow it got delivered and signed for about 300km away, the person who received it didn't read the address on the front either and so opened it and it turned into quite the drama as they were not exactly firearms enthusiasts

    Fastway are firearms friendly. Some couriers will not accept firearms. Obviously you can package less obviously and send as machine parts or tools

    I'd suggest the experience above has to be attributed to their local driver. The bottom line is all courier companies will have some good, and some drop-kick drivers.

    I've had no issues with sending firearms by fastway, probably sent 1/2 a dozen or so with no issue.

    DONT USE FASTWAYS. they left a sign on delivery rifle on my front door all day! The only reason there has not been a story on the news about it is the seller asked me not to.
