    Not fully sure yet, i see theres several overseas websites selling them, not sure how hard they will be to import? If its next to impossible to get in, may have to go through Beretta NZ

    @GWH I would look at getting that one on trademe. Ironically you can easily order the 5 shot from Brownells as it is $99.99 but not the 3 shot plastic mag which is $100 and therefore requires a $250 US export permit Prefer the steel 5 shot myself.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Trademe mag boys, had a $150 auto bid on it, then forgot to watch the end of the auction didn't I (what a cock). Someone paid another $5 more bugger it. So still in the market for a 3 round flush mount mag if anyone knows of one.

    Excellent, a mate found my ammo pouch lying in a clearing about 6 months after I lost it, hadn't realised I'd lost it there either.

    That's hard case. The good ol' 150 BT eh!

    I once found my mates Led Lesner H14 about three months after he lost it at one our lookouts. It still worked faultlessly. One very happy chappy!

    Classic. Good find.
    Didn't find any of the many missing Auckland Tikka T3 bolts as well?

    That is the inconvenience of mags, one day or another you loose them! Or you leave them at home.
