    Rifle stock - import query

    A bud of mine has been inspired by a recent upgrade of mine.

    Is it possible to import a rifle stock in from the usa through check in luggage?

    He recons he is able to buy a second hand stock off ebay

    As long as its for an a-cat you shouldnt need any import paperwork this end, stateside you MAY have an issue due to ITAR restrictions, but doubtful, got my Father in law to bring in a boyds stock for my 17hmr and had no issues.

    Send an email to the TSA and ITAR and they will tell you if it can be taken out of the states or not.
    I found the TSA very helpful when I emailed them and spoke to them (not the strip searching ones, but guys in the background) at LAX.

    Yea no worries with nz as long as its acat (as far as im aware the only parts you need an import permit for is parts that directly contribute to the actual function of the firearm stocks arnt as you could just tie a stick to a barreled action and it would still go bang the issue is with the usa
    Any gun part over 100 usd requires a export permit from the us government
    Which cost money so you need a waigh up the costs involved

    Got a mate in US to buy a B&C stock for me ( for REM700) picked it up on one of my trips and bought it back as checked baggage. No problems either end. That was about 2 yrs ago.

    I bought a B&C rifle stock home in a checked in bag last week. Declared it to the airline agent and had TSA inspect it to ensure it was not stopped at the x-ray check. However, I recall something about any firearm parts over USD$100 require an export permit so maybe I got lucky and no one raised that question.

    When I had my stock sent over to NZ; the supplier stated that it cost $99 - hence removing the need for the export permit. Just make sure your stock is worth less than $100 ;-)

    Or wait till July next year when the restrictions at the US end are scheduled to be lightened, allowing up to $400 I think without paperwork, and many parts not requiring paperwork at all.
