    I just confirmed that from the horse's mouth few minutes ago.

    The police issues an importation permit, the importation permit once issued, they automatically send an email to the firearm safety authority and that flags an activating circumstance.
    I gave them the example of trigger spring and the supervisor said you don't need to register that spring but you will need to register all the firearms.
    So basically they use anything to create that activating circumstance and they will advise you via email.

    It's because they know the majority of people will delay as long as possible, at least until after the election. They are desperate to put positive spin on it, including high early compliance

    I am pretty sure they are monitoring all tm sales as well. regardless if it's a face to face sale.
    Iforgot to ask what is happening if you do not receive that imported item, let;s say lost by the courier, but I got a feeling that they will use the importation permit and ......send you an email.

    1. the girl who answered knew nothing --- off course
    2. spent 29 minutes, the majority on hold
    But looked through the arms act 1983 and regulation act 1992.

    According to the the arms act 1983 current on the legislation.govt.nz

    https://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/...resel_25_h&p=1
    chapter 2 interpretation:

    arms item means an item of any of the following classes:
    (a) firearms (including prohibited firearms):
    (b) magazines (including prohibited magazines):
    (c) parts (including prohibited parts):
    (d) airguns:
    (e) pistols:
    (f) restricted weapons:
    (g) pistol carbine conversion kits

    So, there is a difference between an arm items and major parts
    The Firearm safety authority lists the "activating circumstances" on this link and if you open each one of them talks about "arms item" as this is the key word used.
    https://www.firearmssafetyauthority....our-arms-items

    let's say the importation of parts for a firearm which is one of the activating circumstances the Firearms Safet Authority" says:
    "The first time you import an arms item you must register that item within 30 days of the item being released by New Zealand Customs.

    You must register all remaining arms items in your possession within 30 days of this activating circumstance."

    they do not say importation of a major part. They simply says importation of an arms item.
    Ok, you may argue how you can register a pin or a spring or a trigger but I am pretty sure this will be used as an activating circumstance and then they will tell you that you only need to register the firearms,
    It can be confusing, but it says on the website what is classified as an arms item in relation to the register.
    Every time you see the words “register an arms item” refer back to the bellow picture and you will know what needs to be registered.

    You just can't fix stupid; there’s not a pill you can take or a class you can go to.

    What I found out today is even if it's not a part that needs to be registered, eg suppressor
    If you complete a mail order form for this then it is an activating circumstance and therefore you must register all (not including suppressor) within 30 days
    Didn't see that one coming but apparently it's there in the legislation
