    Shit Rod that sounds like a hard run around mate

    If i was you i would be putting a name and shame up to put pressure on them to deliver gunsmithing and custum guns defiantly aren't a massive market her in nz.

    Police? IRD?
    Effectively a stolen rifle and fraud?

    I have no idea really but that is a shit shituation to be in.

    Others will come along with knowledge on what to do in this situation I am sure.
    They may advise not to name and shame before resolution/

    I think a year is a long time to be patient and you have kept up your end of things by the sound of it, I hope you get it resolved soon

    Thinking reporting or threat of reporting it missing to the police might hurry him along .

    That might be a sensible thing to do, whether or not you want to hurry him up. If he doesn't have it then who does?

    Ird are more scary than the police....I would be looking at both those avenues but dont do anything just yet....I am sure some clever legal type will arrive on the thread.

    i would think that the idea of the gunsmith being named on this and other forums may hurry him along in resolving this for you otherwise put his name here and warn others . he will find his business shrinking if that happens.

    My suggestion would be to first advise him that you will be approaching the police as the firearm has gone missing in transit. Suggest that if he has genuinely sent it that the courier must have possession so ask for a specific date for when it was sent so you can follow up wit the Arms office.

    When and if you speak to the Arms office, it would not hurt to explain that you suspect he has not sent it and that he is potentially heading to a fraudulent situation, but if he thinks the AO is actually looking into it, he may be more inclined to tell the truth. A year is too long. If he cannot do this, he should have fronted up and admitted it earlier.

    Yup. Fair Trading ...... not a good example!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    We can probably guess who this gunsmith might be.
