    That's an option but its a lot of ****-about considering I'm asking for a favour from those here.

    I'm not sure how to proceed as I need those mags before I leave.

    Comments?

    Go talk to the legal officer in your squadron and ask if this law can be gotten around by having the magazines sent directly to your government instillation itself.

    Actually that's a fucking good idea.

    Wait out.

    Ok feedback thus far...

    I'm going to have a chat with our unit armourer on Monday and hopefully get his agreement to have the magazines sent there directly, if this happens I'll PM the unit address and details to those concerned.

    Thanks again

    Your laws are very similar to ours, so perhaps a "legally modified" mag that could be Un-Modified?

    Not trying to be cheeky but how about UPS/FedEx? I don't think it's possible to disguise the shape of a mag body anyway, so maybe bull-shipping could work.

    We call that rifle a C-8. If those mags would fit, let me know.

    And, PS: You bloody well better not get your tender, pink carcass ventilated over there.

    You in the CF?
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    I expect you're right. The other fellas seem to have a better idea anyway.

    Welcome to the forum brother.

    Dave, ya it's tricky. I chatted up a SME today on it and he said I'd need to send the mags and springs seperately. I'm not sure if on you're end that's going to get you put in the slammer.
    I'm willing to risk you going to jail mind you :)
    Let me know if and when you want em sent.
