    Opticsplanet

    The other day I ordered an EGW picatinny base for a Savage L/A and Opticsplanet emailed me back saying it's on hold because of export restrictions and saying I need an important license.. I thought I heard they sent scopes to NZ with no problems?
    If anyone can help/suggest way around the problem that would be great

    I have one of those bases here (new) if that solves your problem.

    I just bought a Weaver 20 MOA base for my rifle, no issues, except their international sales unit must be missing a few chromosomes I reckon.

    I had problems of a different kind. I order two items, and they sent them in two separate consignments. I got raped big time on shipping. Like I said, a bunch of mongoloids.

    I bought a scope from them in December last year, easy communication, and fast delivery, no hassles whatsoever...
    But their shipping was typical US pricey, still it was a load cheaper than here.
    You can talk to them on-line, I did that as it said my scope had export restrictions...
    I spend ~95% locally for my shooting habit.
