    Importing scopes from U.S (optics planet)

    I have been looking at a scope online from optics planet, but the only problem is getting it to NZ because of the weapons restriction...... Does anyone know how to get scopes from the U.S to NZ without very much risk?

    Thanks

    Don’t buy from optics planet, instead use one of the many other web shops that actually ship to Nz

    Unfortunately, at this time we cannot ship any products of this brand(s) to your country due to restrictions imposed by our manufacturer. The manufacturer has specified that United States dealers should not sell internationally to protect business rights of international dealers.

    As Gimp says, find somewhere else,

    It’s not an uncommon practice for manufacturers to protect their dealers in other countries - Aimpoint, Burris, EOTech, Kahles, Leupold, Nightforce, Redfield, Schmidt & Bender, Sightron, Steiner, Swarovski, Trijicon, Vortex and Zeiss all prohibit export of their products.

    They will however send out nikons
