    Brownells USA or AU for parts

    Does anyone have recent experience with getting parts through Brownells either USA or Australia ?

    Nothing that would require any paper work etc.
    Also well under the customs and gst problem areas.
    Small items so a bit of an idea on what guys have been paying for freight also would help. The web site didn't cope so well with New Zealand

    Cheers

    Yes, USA. Freight wasn’t bad, $25 or so for a wee box of bits and bobs...

    Choose the US Post international mail options for delivery form the drop down box, not the almost default Fedex/UPS options which are far more $$$.

    Brownells USA so far so good.

    Took a while to confirm order as one item was out of stock.
    Didn't want it coming in several lots.

    International first class freight was US $17.
    They also applied the discount promos to the order which nearly covered the freight.
    So now I just want to see how long it actually takes to get here.

    Really good order confirmation, packing confirmation and freight price information before charging credit card.

    Shipping from USA, You have to stay under $100US to avoid US State Department export permit fee of $250US (unless things have changed?) Also avoid receivers, and barrels as they also need an expensive export permit.

    Also make sure you pick the cheapest postal option.
