    Did you bring in any firearm bits by any chance Perazzi?
    That's the only thing stopping me at the moment. I want to bring in a handguard and don't know if they'll send it.

    Oh dear. That doesn't sound good 300MAG.
    I might email them first and see what they reply.
    Failing that I'll have to try another route.

    I just read a thread on here of a place called ship2u.

    If you read the list of prohibited items for you shop anything firearms related they won't send besides scopes under $2000 value.
    Couldn't say for ship2u as have never used them.

    After receiving an email from NZ Post confirming the handguard I want isn't a prohibited item and they cannot refuse to ship it, I have gone ahead and ordered it.
    I'm using their YouShop service, so will see what happens. Will report back .........

    I may have been lucky as the US seller listed it as a "metal part". There was no mention of anything firearms on the packaging form.

    Something you should maybe request if buying stuff in the future.

    I've used them a few times successfully in the last few months. Their shipping costs are quite competitive too.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Well I tried another item via Youshop, and they have refused to send it stating "it is a prohibited item". No other reason given. Nothing to say why they think it is a prohibited item.
    It is only a farking nylon net for fucks sake!!

    I have spoken to a representitive of Amazon and am getting Amazon to now pick the item back up and they will resend to me directly.
    Didn't think YouShop would've had an issue with a farking net. Lesson learned the hard way I suppose.
