    Police permits

    Not sure if it the right place to ask but here it goes. Looking at buying a bottom metal and magazine from a local online shop. So it not major gun parts . Do i still need a police permit for it or not? I understand it not needed but correct me if i am wrong. Shop said i need it as it online sales

    Thanks

    You'll probably get varied opinion.
    I usually send an email to the FSA at Kapiti and ask the question.
    You'll get a written response that you can present to the seller (if you don't need a permit) More pertinent when importing something and customs plays games.

    Due to the FAL requirement to purchase magazines now, yes, you’ll need a mail-order form. You possibly wouldn’t if it was just the bottom metal alone.

    To my understanding you will not need a mail order form if picking up in person (but you will need to show fal).

    Are stocks on that list? I know that they would come under the parts category, but are they considered an essential part.

    @Got-ya. If buying from a shop, stocks need a permit if it need to be couriered. Atleast that what the shop told me as they not allowing pick ups.

    I didnt think non pcp airguns were part of this circus act. If they're not, then the FSA shouldnt be including a blanket "airguns" like that. Do the cops really want to martial
    airgun lead slugs and peashooters???? How much red tape do they want?

    Go to the Gunworks website, they have very good info about what needs a permit or not.

    I'm chuckling to myself as I type this. Is it a pretty quick process to purchase of the yellow site, organise permit/paperwork for freight from H&F to H&F branches, and collect the goods? What's the approximate time frame please on this sort of thing, SI to NI? Cheers

    Ahhhhhh. Perhaps the "piece of wood" is the "wrong" shape.

    Purchased a few mosin stripper clips from an online store in Poland and that technically required paperwork for customs not that customs stopped the package. I called the firearms safety authority and customs directly and just asked whenever I had a question about how the process was meant to go. Annoying, but not overly painful. The phone staff were pretty on point with helping or directly me to who I actually needed to speak with.
