    Laminate stocks

    Hi was wondering if anyone in New Zealand has imported any gun stocks from the states I am having trouble finding any one in the states that will export to nz. Thanks

    Richard microfit, but prepare to wait and wait an wait , and forget about communication between the day you place your order and the day you receive it. The good point is that they charge your credit card once rifle is ready to ship, so no nasty surprises .
    But you still have to spend a Fair amount of time finishing the stock!

    If you can, get one from Boyds sent to a relative etc in Aussie and then get them to send it over. I contacted Boyds and was told it was to do with wood stocks and nz customs. My neighbors went overseas and as the states was on their places to visit, I got them to bring one back with them.

    Geez, if that happens I bet they would be selling around the $500-$600 mark.

    I just had my Boyds laminate shipped directly by them to my door here on Kapiti coast. Took a week and a half I guess, but they do export to NZ so long as the value is under $100. it's for my 6.5 Swede, and there was a bit of fitting to do with the dremel to extend one of the cutouts for the floor plate. 10 min job, and now I just need to finish it (ie with oil, sanding etc). The stock was $USD 69 and about the same for shipping with UPS.
