Online Purchase Police Procedure
The mail order or Internet sales form is required where arms items (excluding prohibited parts) are being sold and purchased without in-person completion of the sale. This is in accordance with Section 43A(1) and (2) of the Arms Act 1983. This legislation is current, as far as we are aware, however may be changed at any time and without notice. In completing a transaction to purchase a non-prohibited firearm product from our website, you agree to undertake all necessary steps to fulfill your obligation in receiving approval by the New Zealand Police to take possession of the proposed item/s. Hardy Rifle will not be held liable for applications that have been denied by the New Zealand Police, nor will Hardy Rifle be held liable by the New Zealand Police, or any other authority, for any unlawful activity by you, the purchaser.
Upon receipt from the New Zealand Police of an application having been approved, Hardy Rifle will continue to process the order and despatch it to you accordingly and within a timely manner (please see our Delivery policy below). Please note that some custom orders may not be placed into production until approval has been received and therefore some delays are possible. It is your responsibility as the purchaser to ensure prior to any purchase on our website that you are legally entitled to take possession of an item/s you propose to purchase. In the event that your application is denied by the New Zealand Police, a refund of the purchase price (paid) including any associated shipping cost (less an administration fee of $25), will apply for stock items only. For items that are made to order or customised, all sales are final and no refund will apply, unless, in the event that an order for a customised item has not yet gone into production, Hardy Rifle will at their discretion approve a refund on a case by case basis.
