Well my plans for my custom rifle have hit a BIG problem. Gun parts over the value of $100 need to have an export permit. My Badger O M4 floor plate doesn't seem like it will happen now :cry: The other parts that im after like the BO Tactical bolt knob and maximised recoil lug are no worries though.

Does anyone know whats involved with an export permit?


Cheers

I am sorry to hear that! While I don't have experience with export permits, do let me know if there is anything I can do to help

Thanks Mel.

The story so far is the two components that exceed USD$100 is the McMillan stock and the Badger Oordance floorplate. Customs on my end are ok and I can get a free import permit, pay my 10%GST and $100-150 in fees when any of the items get here. No worries 8)

The problem that I have is that a stock and florplate are classed as gun parts (US state department?) and and are over USD$100 in value and hence need and export permit. . The permit usually takes between 30 and 40 days., and ive heard it can take up to 3 months :shock: .

Just to get an idea of what Brownells charges in USD$

$10 for the export documentation
$5 shippers export decleration fee
$5 pakaging fee
$10 insurance
$?? Brokerage fee (to determine if the country the package is destined for can accept what is being sent)
$?? shipping

What a drama :(

I have written to McMillan to see what thier costs in fees, shipping, waiting times are etc. and I haven't heard back.

Has any one here on the forum delt with McMillan before? I would prefer to buy both items from the to simplify the process.

Thanks in advance guys

What a scam!!! It sounds like you need a mail drop in the US, or friend in the US Military that can have parts shipped to him/her in OZ via their APO address.

I have delt with McMillan, but it was over the phone, and all was well. Perhaps you need to just call them?
