    You would be very lucky if you could find anyone willing to ship a rifle out side the US from that web site.
    And probably not with out going through all the paper work.

    The idea is to buy from gun broker and have it shipped to an FFL that handles exports, clearly.

    Yes Ive done it. What you have to do is find an exporter in the US. Basically the person/dealer you buy the rifle off forwards it to the Exporter who then forwards it to you for a fee. All you have to do is get a permit to import from NZ which is forwarded to Exporeter, along with a letter asking Exporter to organise freight/shipping to NZ. In the letter you need to include the fact that the the rifle is not for resale purposes, plus cost of rifle plus details make model.

    Exporter forwards the copy of your Permit plus letter to appropriate US authorities for offical documentation.

    I drooled over gunbroker for years and always thought it wasnt possible, but hey it can be done(A cat anyway).....can give you contact details for an exporter if you want.

    Usually exporters charge something like $250-400 per rifle. So unless you want something pretty special, it's often cheaper to buy local.

    I think there will be a minimum $250US for State Department export licence, plus what the exporter will want/

    But let me know as I recently drooled over a 1950 LB No4, the seller in the USA would only ship to a ffl, so actually it might be possible now you mention it. It would double the cost of the rifle ($500US + these fees) but for a fairly rare in NZ Enfield worth it to me.
