    Permit needed to import an A2 pistol grip?

    I'm assuming you do, although it can fit other types of firearms, ie pump action shotgun.

    For the import side of things at this end you will either need a Pol67E signed off by Joe Green or a letter from your AO stating its intended purpose is A-Cat firearm.

    Thanks guys.

    For a $5.60 exposure give it a hoon and see what happens. You might get lucky and it comes through sweet as?

    Surely you won't need to import one, there will be butt loads of surplus ones floating around with the new A-cat compliant stocks ?

    He might if he is looking for a genuine A2 one, which from my understanding was an E part as screwed up as it is logic.

    Yeah, got the factory Schmeisser hogue style grip on it at present, just looking to put the A2 pistol grip on it, so the lower (has A2 stock already) can meet service rifle standards.

    How do you tell if it's A2. I have a grip not being used off my AR15 I used to own You could have it if it s what you need I "can't " use it now.
    It's soft grip not cross hatch hard shiny one so probably not one of those dangerous ones

    I didn't say it was a perfect plan

    All joking aside, is that a likelyhood?

    Yep.
    They might even charge you years later.

    On Target has A2 grips for $30, which is far less hassle really, I'll just have to wear the price difference.

    Probably cheaper considering the shipping costs from Brownells

    You were willing to jump through hoops and piss around with buying from overseas for a part that is available here for 30 bucks? Ummm righto... times must be really tough for some.
