    Heres the long and short of my situation:

    My cousin is the president of a shooting club in Santiago, Chile. Being a president of a government-recognised club, he's given certain privileges like tax cuts on ammunition (which is ridiculously overpriced), access to certain ranges and , the part that matters to me, the ability to resale gun parts.

    Due to the general fear of guns ( probably something to do with the fascist regime they had for 20 some-odd years and current-day socialist government), gun parts are extremely expensive. Since I live in the good ol' US of A (and in the home state of Colt manufacturing)I can get gun parts for relatively cheap. What I'm looking to do is LEGALLY ship Colt slides for 1911s to Chile.

    Anyone have any knowledge of shipping gun slides outside of the United States?

    I THINK it should be legal for you to ship them down there as its just parts and not a complete gun.

    I'd be careful sending any parts like that overseas. I would contact people before doing it.

    L2) Does a licensee need an export license to export a firearm? [Back]

    The GCA does not require export licenses. However, most firearms and ammunition must be exported in accordance with the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act of 1976. Regulations implementing this Act generally require a license to be obtained from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, Department of State, PM/DDTC, SA-1, Room 1200, 2401 E St., N.W., Washington, DC 20037; (202) 663-1282.

    The export of sporting shotguns and ammunition for sporting shotguns is regulated by the U.S. Department of Commerce rather than the State Department. An export license is generally needed to export these shotguns and ammunition. For further information, contact them at their nearest district office or the Bureau of Industry and Security, Outreach and Educational Services Division, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th St. & Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, DC 20230, (202) 482-4811.

    When exporting NFA firearms, ATF Form 9 must be completed and approved by ATF prior to export.

    [22 U.S.C. 2778, 27 CFR 479.114 and 479.116]

    If it helps, the only part of the gun that's actually considered a firearm is the frame or receiver. The rest is legally just pieces of metal. I would still contact that ATF before sending anything though.

    shipping firearms parts to other countries is a very touchy subject, even parts. Last thing you want is to have the ATF or FBI smashing down your door because you are selling weapons to people in a latin country. Seriously, this is the LAST place you should be asking for federal legalize.

    it doesnt fucking matter if the receiver is the gun or not. you can't export defense articles without an export permit. Its NOT the ATF's jursidiction to ship parts out of the country.

    US defense export controls are nothing to fuck with.

    You think someone sending missle guidance parts would get away with the "it's not a complete missle" defense? :o :rofl:

    I would try to call an ATF field office and run it by them.
