    If you donít want a firearm anymore you are perfectly entitle to take it to the Police and surrender it. Now that stocks are legally firearms parts the same thing will apply.
    Not any part. Only actual firearms and restricted parts/mags etc
    A stock is a lump of wood

    part, in relation to any firearm or restricted weapon,ó
    (a)

    meansó
    (i)

    any component that, of itself, is essential to the discharge of any shot, bullet, missile, or other projectile from the firearm or restricted weapon; and
    (ii)

    any component that is exclusively designed to be, or is intended to be, an integral part of the firearm or restricted weapon (for example, a butt, stock, magazine, or other component that feeds or contributes to feeding ammunition to the firearm or restricted weapon);

    A reasonable person would likely interpret that as being the Howa standard stock does not fit within that definition of the police gobbledygook description. The magazine portion is part of the action (internal mag) or separate part (external / removeable mag)

    Besides, you can always just screw a Broom handle, paint it black and stick a tube on top and it becomes a toy ......

    This sort of stupidity comes when you let people who do NOT know what they are talking about write laws these about things
    Intelligence has its limits, but it appears that Stupidity knows no bounds......

    Fuck, are you for real? Just give them away or dump them. Iím too old and cynical for this new age bullshit.

    Looks like you've already got it sorted, but for others in the future who come here looking for an answer to a similar question: you only need a permit to send firearms parts where you aren't doing a face to face interaction with the person receiving the firearm part, so just throw them up as a free face to face only thing in Dunedin. That or see if Elios'/your local gun store wants them.

    @timattalon the interpretation of “part” from the legislation

    part, in relation to any firearm or restricted weapon,—
    (a)
    means—
    (i)
    any component that, of itself, is essential to the discharge of any shot, bullet, missile, or other projectile from the firearm or restricted weapon; and
    (ii)
    any component that is exclusively designed to be, or is intended to be, an integral part of the firearm or restricted weapon (for example, a butt, stock, magazine, or other component that feeds or contributes to feeding ammunition to the firearm or restricted weapon); and

    It specifically mentions stock as a part.

    It specifically mentions stock that feeds or contributes to the feeding of the ammunition. Thus if the stock does not contribute to the feeding then by their wording it is not a part.

    As mentioned, the Howa stock does not contribute to the feeding of the ammunition as the magazine itself is separate to the stock and bolts to the action becoming part of the action and not part of the stock. Again, I suspect this is poorly written shit legislation put in place by someone who does not know enough about what they are talking about and is meant to confuse those of us who do have an understanding of how these things work.[/QUOTE]

    @ Stug It specifically mentions stock that feeds or contributes to the feeding of the ammunition. Thus if the stock does not contribute to the feeding then by their wording it is not a part. The use of the word 'That' in the sentence makes the following part of the sentence a condition.

    As mentioned, the Howa stock does not contribute to the feeding of the ammunition as the magazine itself is separate to the stock and bolts to the action becoming part of the action and not part of the stock.

    @Cigar @stug

    No I didn't. It states " that feeds or contributes to feeding ammunition" If a stock does not contribute to feeding (Shotgun fore wood or butt for example) then it is not considered a part. IF it does contribute towards or is part of the feeding mechanisim then it does. The Howa stock contains the feeding mechanisim but does in no way or shape "contribute " towards the operation of the feed. In the Howas case if the stock was fitted to the action but the magazine well is not- will it feed still? No it wont.

    My main point is that the law is so badly written that there are multiple ways to read it and the misunderstanding of a single small word can alter the clarity of the law.
    At the end of the day the permit would only be needed for mail order and if in doubt- then pick up with a visual license check would be completely above board....

    Just think, if we cannot all read it and take away the same meaning and understanding of what is written, when it is right in front of all of us- how in hells name can they expect people to obey it when it is so poorly written?

    You are wrong Tim, Gunworks requires a police mail order form for stocks, they aren’t going to do that unless the law says so.

    https://gunworks.co.nz/shop/category/stocks

    You also need to read the wording at the start of that section “any component that is exclusively designed to be, or is intended to be, an integral part of the firearm or restricted weapon”. It doesn’t state the part has to assist with feeding the rifle. Also look at the other parts listed below
    includes the following components or accessories that can be fitted to, or adapted to fit, a firearm or restricted weapon:
    (i)
    grips:
    (ii)
    frames:
    (iii)
    chassis systems:
    (iv)
    magazine adapters:
    (v)
    magazine couplers:
    (vi)
    magazine loaders:
    (vii)
    flash suppressors:
    (viii)
    silencers:
    (ix)

    Most of those don’t help with feeding.
