    Tikka Floor Plate Import Permit?

    I have just ordered an Atlasworx Tikka Floor plate online from Australia. They have replied saying under the new law changes I will need an import permit? Is this the case and if so what's the best way to do this?

    Could be tricky given I am not in NZ at the moment.

    Cheers.

    I just replied to your facebook post with the same question.
    Yes you need a permit, no it's not hard.
    You just need to follow the process.
    I have just been through this for some other parts.

    Yes permit required. I think permit applications can be submitted online now. Worst part is waiting to get it out of NZ Customs if they catch it.

    You can download the form then submit it via email, very easy.
    I rang the local arms office in Christchurch and they were great to deal with.

    Easy enough to be done while I am overseas and not in NZ?

    I assume the form you are talking about is on the NZ Police website?

    Thanks for the help.

    Iím surprised you donít need to apply for an Australian export permit!

    I had to get one when I send my Leupold scope over to the Ozzie agent for repair & then apply fir an export permit to get it back!

    The website essentially says I don't need to do one?

    "Form POL67B - Application to import firearms airguns, restricted airguns and firearm parts. A permit is not required for parts of a sporting rifle or shotgun other than the complete upper action (upper and/or lower receiver for AR/AK types)."

    Thanks, yes I found that myself, as you said it says in black, well blue & white,

    Form POL67B - Application to import firearms airguns, restricted airguns and firearm parts. A permit is not required for parts of a sporting rifle or shotgun other than the complete upper action (upper and/or lower receiver for AR/AK types).

    I can feel a few questions being asked tomorrow along the lines of WTF do we have to get import permits for all firearms parts when that says we don't....

    Its even its title "POL 67B: Application to Import Firearms/Restricted weapons/parts" its for restricted parts....I had this discussion earlier & got told "no all parts require an import permit"

    Quite unbelievable to be fair if it is in fact the case....why are they even issuing permits .....
