    Shipping rifles to Oz...

    Fellas, has anyone moved to Aus and taken their rig over?

    I spend a lot more time in Oz now and will be here for the next 5+ years so keen to ship my rig over once I have my license here.

    What was the process like?
    Any tips etc would be helpful....

    I have done it twice now.

    Ideally you want to get your Australian license first. You can then apply to purchase a firearm and would also apply for a import permit, B709A it is called.

    Otherwise you need to get it sent to a dealer for storage until you get your license and a pta.

    Unless you have outstanding gear, just bring your scope and possibly mounts with you and buy a rifle here. Look on used guns. Second hand gear here tends to be used less than In NZ and possibly a touch cheaper.

    I’m just in the process of getting my licence sorted.

    Thanks for the response!
