    AK Parts (Long Shot)

    It's a long shot but I thought I would check here.

    I'm after an oversized charging handle knob and 1 or 2 buffers?

    Even if someone knows where internationally would ship here that would have them? The usuals don't have them or those that do won't ship here.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    NZ Post youshop have a warehouse in Portland, Oregon that you can have stuff shipped to. The warehouse then ships stuff on to you for a reasonable charge, would need the relevant paperwork if necessary, etc.

    https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/youshop

    List of things they cannot ship:
    https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/youshop - this includes "firearms parts".

    The "FULL" list of things they cannot ship is however more hopeful in terms of your charging handle, which to my best reading is not included in the list:
    https://support.nzpost.co.nz/app/ans...tail/a_id/1697 but there is a risk of them choking on it still. It seems that US export law is the problem.

    Good luck. Otherwise find a helpful engineer with a lathe and milling machine.

    You might even get a better-than-OEM handle that way. Someone might still be able to help in other ways.
