    Re Gun City order

    Inquired about a rifle on GC website and was told they have none in stock. Said they can order one from the US but could take 6-8 months before i got it. A couple of weeks to arrive from the states then months for paperwork etc? Anyone else experienced this and did it really take that long?

    Its easy to avoid this situation - dont deal with that company. Lots of other , reputable gunshops out there.

    Depends on what you want. As an example for an A category firearm:
    NZ Import Permit ~ 1-2 weeks (could even get it in 1 day dependant on AO)
    US Export Permit ) ~ 2- 4 weeks
    Shipping < 1 week

    So a little less than what they stated.

    Fixed it for you

    Freight for a single rifle will be $3-400 USD, same for the export permit.

    Its more economical to combine orders which is where some of the increase in time comes from.

    I got a Henry rifle imported via the local distributor, as he only did 2-3 containers a year it took about 6 months.
    Made a %50 deposit on order and payed the rest when I picked up the rifle.
