    No hassle importing, the hassle is exporting from the USA.

    True, so they can't really do it without extensive paperwork?

    Paperwork is not bad, end use agreement, NZ import permit, purchase order form, DSP83 form.
    Its whether the manufacturer is registered for export and the company you are buying from will export to NZ.
    Who are you buying it from?

    I recently bought one in from Mountain Tactical Company, home of The Tikka Performance Center without any hassles at all.

    This is the one I went for....seems pretty standard to me? Apart from the cat. What do you mean by kiwi hunter type out of interest?

    Lite weight, straight forward stock thats better that the tikka factory offering with regards to bedding. I like a synthetic stock. The bell and carlson best describes what I'm trying to get from the US.

    I've used Redhawk Rilfes and certainly a top guys and top service. Email them for payment detail and checking on stock levels etc.

    Out of curiosity what is it you don't like with the factory stock?
    Does the gun not shoot very well, or does it not have a nice feel to it?
