    Trigger parts from USA

    Can you order trigger bits and pieces from the states without permits? Not a trigger assembly like timey. Just a p226 short trigger and a short trigger reset kit. 3 components in total. Two different parcels.

    Trigger parts.

    For pistol or E cat trigger parts you will need a import permit. I got a short reset for my Glock and required a import permit but then Customs just sent it anyway with out holding the item. But if you dont have the permit then they can be a pain to deal with.

    Cheers.

    If its sporting ie cat A the only thing you might need a permit for is the action, this is what my AO told me this morning anyway.

    You need an import permit for any parts that comprise an A Cat action - inc trigger. You need an import permit for any part of the gun if it is E-Cat.

    We got pinged by customs a couple of weeks ago for importing some spare springs and roll pins that form part of an AR action. These parts are probably available at any good NZ engineering store. Our supplier had labled them "machined parts". Customs are very sensitive at the moment.

    The letter of the law is a permit is required for any firearm parts, however "parts" isn't actually defined in the law

    yes it is....

    ARM ACT 1983
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sec 2 - Interpretation

    Part
    (a) In relation to a pistol, restricted weapon, or military style semi-automatic firearm, includes any
    thing, such as a butt, stock, magazine, silencer, or sight, which, while not essential for the
    discharge by a pistol, restricted weapon, or military style semi-automatic firearm of any shot,
    bullet, missile, or other projectile, is designed or intended to be an integral part of a pistol,
    restricted weapon, or military style semi-automatic firearm; and
    (b) In relation to any other firearm, means the action for that firearm:

    so trigger is not considered a "part" on other firarms so does not need import permit!

    but not sure what latest changes to legislation have on this

    Yep so for your p226 trigger reset you will need a import permit. Just call your AO and give him a discription of the part.

    Best to comply so Customs don't get anal about it all.
