Legion Tigr .308 rear sight leaf

"Some other minor differences between my rifle and other Tigrs is it has a fully adjustable gas regulator and unlike other Tigr leaf sights I've seen which only have up to 300m it has the full ranges right up to 1200m. Apparently there were only 5 imported into NZ" -Sam

In New Zealand the Tigr is classified as a hunting rifle so no special permits are required to purchase one other than a firearms license. The firearms license is a bit of nuisance to obtain but once you have it you are good to go for 10 years. Basically the license requires safe storage, a short multi-choice test and interviews with a relative and non-relative so they can vouch for your sanity. They also do a police background check. The process takes about 2 months from beginning to end.
