    List of shops to buy gear from overseas

    After fishing around through the forum, it seems that a lot of people would like to know where others buy gear abroad that ship to NZ.
    There could be many reasons to buy abroad but the 2 main and only ones i can think of are, its either not available in NZ or just to damn expensive.

    So this thread is dedicated to those stores overseas that ship to NZ.
    But before i continue on, like many i will say this "Buy locally first, within reason".
    Maybe we can also have a local thread as well....an idea.

    I guess we need to watch out as we will get too many repeats.
    I don’t think these are covered yet. Have purchased stuff from all of these.

    Umm, last time we had info like this it caused issues. It's pretty easy to do your own research when trying to source gear overseas

    Why, some of the overseas outfits sell items that are not available here/no local agency. So you are not bypassing a local joint at any rate.

    Some of the savy local agencies stopped the horses bolting ages ago. You will find this (without quoting specifics) when you visit some American websites and find NZ specifically excluded from export. Also a lot of the manufacturers already protect their offshore agencies - Michaels Of Oregon (Butler Creek, Hoppes, Bore Snake and Stoney Point etc) is a good example. Some Brownells stuff is also not able to be exported as a condition of their supply from their sources. Again, due to the products in question having overseas agencies.

    Posters are constantly providing links to their favoutite offshore bargain shops so nothing new.

    unfortunately protectionism means obscene prices and useless service. I still like to buy local when I can but it is usually the various parallel importers that give me the best deals. Just as well for places like Brownells or we would still be faced with $5000 bottom end ARs.

    These guys are ok also:
    https://www.dsarms.com

    they also do the less than $100 deal for exports and $100 for the ITAR shit paper if you need. Haven't shipped anything for a while so cant comment on shipping costs.
