^LOL so based on that it looks like they haven't caught wind of this version of megs.

To me it looks like it got flagged (possibly due to the silencer attachments), they opened it up and saw a robot, and for whatever reason let it through. I'd say they didn't believe a cartoon Megs as accurate as this could possibly transform into a gun.

Sigh.... I know people were genuinely trying to help and good on them for it, but I really wish I'd never read this thread. Then I would have just taken my chances as I originally planned and would have my Megs rather than having to wait another two months for my mate from QLD to bring it down in July when he visits

I'd ask him to post it but he broke his collarbone yesterday - he ain't exactly going to make it to the post office any time soon. Next time I'll just trust my gut like I should have had

Oh, they would have been made aware. They just chose not to care enough at this point in time.
Now dance for me monkeys, dance!

Ooh I dunno, the potential to make money off permits/fines is always a ripe fruit for them

Ok to sum up the state of play on MP-36, is it fair to say that so far it is clearing customs without the need for an import permit? And if by bad luck it is withheld you can simply get the permit done once you receive a customs notice since they will hold it for 30 days?

I've just ordered MP-36 from Japan as a backup to my PC order and found the B709 forms confusing - do you require a firearms licence before applying for the permit because it was asking for a licence number?

You're from NSW aren't you Dap? Then yeah you need the firearms licence first unfortunately. It appears Megs is making it through customs unchecked...as always it's up to people to make their own choices or not whether to apply for the forms.

Thanks for clearing that up and yes I'm from NSW. Sounds like I should get onto that firearms licence now in any case.
