    Importing an extractor

    Just wondering if a package containing an extractor for a remington 1100 would get through customs both here and america easily or would an import permit be required as it is a firearm part?

    Weird, my AO says no import paperwork needed for a bolt action part, except maybe a receiver and thats only to keep the duhs at customs happy. Ive imported lots of enfield parts in the last year so I cant see an issue with an extractor, ring your AO.

    From the US end though I dont know...

    As long as its under a hundered buck at the US end then all good. Brownells probably the best bet ($100 does not include the freight costs) but they rape you a bit on freight costs.
    If it were me I would be buying 2-3, 1100 extracters are known to break regularly

    Your biggest problem is the likelihood your shipment hits a jobsworth at Customs this end who thinks he knows it all.

    "Oh, er, tha' there looks like gun bit. I knows guns, me. More'n my jobs worf ter let tha' through wi'out a hImport Permit... Has ter 'ave one, tha' do, 'coz its a gun bit, an' I knows guns, me..."

    If it's coming through the International Mail Centre at Aucks and hits Paul Roark, you're lucky, no drama.
