    Export High Capacity Magazines from USA

    I note that its a pretty controversial topic at the moment however, in the last couple of weeks I placed an order with Brownells for a long list of firearms parts and accessories including high capacity magazines.

    I did not realise when the order shipped but any AR-15 magazine over 30 rounds and all the Glock magazines were cancelled from the order.

    I contacted Brownells about it and they got back to me with this reply;
    Our Dept. of State will not issue an export license for any magazines over the rounds of 32. Also the manufacture, Glock is not open for international sales.

    I am curious as to where those who have imported 40 and 60 round pmags and surefire magazines purchased them from?

    Also does anyone know of an international reseller of Glock magazines that will export to NZ?

    For all of those who are curious, yes I have the required licences and import permits and the end use is for target shooting at an approved pistol & rifle club (hoping to get into 3 Gun if it is still a sport by the start of next week).

    Doesn't matter now. MSSAs and high capacity mags are now illegal.
