    How do you get a rifle in from Australia?

    Hi Guys,

    Looking at a couple of F-Class rifles in Australia.
    If I was to buy one what is the easiest / cheapest way to get them over here?
    I go to Aussie on business regularly so would bring it back as checked luggage if possible. I have the Permit to Import and my thinking was if i dealt with a gun-shop over there they would handle the export side? correct?

    Getting it into NZ is the easy part, you need to speak to Aust Customs, look at there website for contact details, they are generally pretty good to deal with but there is a shitload of paperwork, you may have to apply for a temporary firearms permit over there as well if you are going to handle them, you will need to talk to the State police where you are buying from.

    You need a export permit to get it out of Aussie. If you buy from a gun shop they may do this for you?
