    Importing parts

    Anyone had any issues recently importing stocks? Should I be getting an import permit from the police?

    Unless it was for a E cat it shouldn't be necessary. I've ordered two stocks recently from McMillan & received no problems. No permits required, even managed to come through customs & not get hit with GST on both counts.

    My last stock was confiscated in the US, and the shipper busted and being done for 'Illegal Export of Items of War - under ITAR regs' or something similar.

    There was a time where you couldnt get a certain sized screw out of the US (something common for model trains IIRC), as the mfg of it also supplied it to a company making NV gear for the Govt.

    Sucks for the seller though. It's no wonder most won't even respond to foreign inquires.

    I'm a bit suprised your stock got stopped to be honest Spanner, as I recently went right through the ITAR list and there wasnt anything on there that jumped out at me about rifle stocks! I even went as far as talking to a trade representative and the US embassy in Wellington. You might find that your stock was part of a bigger order that included some items on the no-no list??

    My query related to a scope that has a 'Gen 2' reticle that they initially stopped. It took a bit of work to get resolved but I got it here in the end

    I have only been hit once with GST this year and not one of my orders has been under $1.5k.........stoked!!!

    Why would I 'find' that? I know exactly whats in my orders, this was from a private ebay seller and was a stock only.

    I've been doing this for a few years now, have over $30k worth on its way at the moment, so I think I have a good idea of how it all works
