IMPORTANT: AS OF 1/04/19: We are struggling to ship firearms direct to customers due to recent tragic events and courier companies refusing to transport firearms as a result. Pickup from our stores when in stock or once a week when not in stock is still an option. If you are in a hurry for your firearm, please call or email before processing the order to confirm.
Shipping within New Zealand on all orders over $100* (excludes firearms, ammunition, safes heavier than 28kg and large or bulky items such as some clay throwers)

Shipping Guns & Accessories To The USA
• It will be an expensive process to send you one gun, costing approximately US$400 for paper work and shipping.
• You will need to find a licensed importer willing to import it for you, this is not always easy and they will want to be paid for that service.
• Additionally, there are some guns and accessories we sell (particularly silencers) that are not permitted into the United States, such as rifles made in China and US made guns that were given to foreign countries under the Lend-lease Scheme.
