    Are you talking about a 10shot AI mag or is there an actual 10 shot Tikka mag?

    Is it easy to get mags through Brownells? Just an import permit amd they sort the US side?

    Was under the impression it was either to hard or no cheaper. Will be very happy if it is easy and cheap to get Tikka mags through Brownells!

    I've emailed brownells international dept and am awaiting response. I'll post the outcome here re that.

    I don't know about permits etc. guess I'm going to learn!!

    I understand that 10-shot mag requires a new fitting to the T3. Not in my budget. I'm figuring if I can carry my 4 round mag as spare w the 6 round in rifle I'm covered for minimal expense when varminting.

    If it is like rifle stocks there will be a $100 USD limit on purchase, anything under that should come through, No need for import permits NZ has no issue recieving them (as was the 10 shot Alloy craigc and I have that came from Australia)

    Just depends if they will post international

    I would just place the order, if they accept and post you will/should receive

    Brownells lists it for $100us. That's $128NZ. Plus post etc. I can get for $150 from a nz supplier so will save up a bit more and buy local!!

    You may have your wires crossed fella, Price show $69.99, and they may not ship if over $100 off shore (pretty sure this is excluding freight) so if freight was say $30 USD it would be about $125 NZD totall (this was certainly the case with a recent purchase, freight took it above $100 but they excluded freight.

    No permit required at this end. Brought one in a couple of months ago with some other stuff.

    You definitely need a permit to import a magazine! Any gun part needs a permit.

    Although I have never had a package checked by customs, so I guess you are lucky it got through.
    Did you buy a Tikka Mag from the US? How much did it end up costing you to get it here?
    Did you go through Brownells?
