    Can I order if I live outside the U.S.?

    Due to the variety of regulations controlling shipments outside the U.S., MidwayUSA is unable to process international orders.

    Do we know of any other than Brownells, Webyshops and Optics Planet? Maybe we should start up a register. DSArms will also for a parts/accessories $100 limit or a $100 export fee... Hey thats gone down, it was $250 last time I looked! Watch them on their shipping though they ripped me off somewhat last time (it was a large order).

    If you are looking for gun parts try Numrich, they will post to NZ

    MidwayUSA going right back wouldn't give us wee guys the steam off their turds. You either had to have an acct (as in a business like a gunshop) or spend a huge amount in one go.

    Well, get prepared for Youshop's inane definition of firearm parts and subsequent refusals to ship to NZ that many of us have already experienced and posted about

    Yes, very true. It would be heavily dependant on what you're purchasing.

    Mines just a bore guide & a scope cover, hopefully they can't get too worked up over that.

    I'll tell them it's an eye patch & a magic wand...

    My most recent knock back was for an adjustable locking nut for a die. They played the old dangerous goods card. In the early days of Youshop I had no problems bringing standard scopes, reloading dies etc via them. Anal now unfortunately. Plus the merchants are also mostly onto the fact that your USA address is a freight forwarder. Youshop are also not particularly cheap with their shipping costs either. I mostly use them for non gun related stuff off Ebay for example where the vendors offer free shipping within USA.

    So could you order a scope and get it forwarded through YouShop?
