    NZ Police import permit 'Hand in' MSSA policy

    Sorry, had a search but couldn't find anything recent.
    What is the current status of NZ Police demanding a 'hand in' MSSA or MSSA parts as part of an import permit? I've just received a permit (applied for it on 7 March and sent a reminder to the AO last week ) for an AR15 trigger and buffer tube and they've added those conditions.

    I see Nicholas Taylor's website has this (came up in my google searches):

    February 2016 - I have recently met with COLFO to assist them with challenges to recent police policies that are potentially unlawful and ultra vires their authority. In particular imposing conditions on import permits and producing a new mail order form.

    Condition: Approval to import the MSSA rifle/shotgun in this permit (and/or parts) - is conditional upon the unconditional surrender to Police of a MSSA rifle/shorgun (or part(s) for MSSA rifle/shotgun) of comparable calibre & capability, PRIOR to release by NZ Customs.

    What did you give as a reason to import?

    I put down that I was modifying an existing MSSA to a different configuration only. No mention of worn out parts.

    PS, I have a munted buffer tube that came with a 2nd hand stock and a crappy trigger that comes with a lower parts kit, but its the principle that pisses me off.

    Also let colfo know, but I'd imagine you have or will.

    Woah, They must be pretty confident in their legal position following the law change if they are trying that one on again. If you're pressed I've got a bog standard mil spec trigger just sitting around. . .

    As he said though it's the principal. You don't want to give in and let them think we'll just roll over.

    I had that Mr Lincoln had a court case on the 'hand in' policy. But I must have been wrong.

    So it looks like they are trying it on again.

    Looks like I better do all my parts importing BEFORE I get my e-cat, since, y'know, I don't need a permit for anything but the lower receiver...
