Just send it to his FFL and he will transfer it to him.

I would check your state laws. Here in Illinois we have to keep gun records for 10 years as individuals. Not a problem for me as a FFL cause I have to keep them forever. At the least I would get his FFL # or a copy of his FFL something with name and address to prove you did it right.

Most FFL s will not send copies to Non FFLs. And you don't need them to.

Just need the first 3 and last 5 parts of his license and verify it here:

www.atfonline.gov/fflezcheck/

Then send to that address.

NP. As a NON FFL you have no requirement to obtain or keep a FFL on record. You need ONLY confirm that you are shipping to a valid FFL.

Thanks man, what about declaring it as a firearm. Is that required?

Not if you are shipping to an FFL. I would just take it the Post Office and mail it to the FFL Priority Mail, insured. Don't lie about the contents. The clerk probably won't ask.

No, don't lie about the contents... If they ask, it's "machine parts".

Best part is they really are!

I wouldn't lie about contents.

A person can legally ship a firearm to a FFL and carriers like Fed Ex and UPS both will do that.

I "think" (but I'm not positive) that you have to be a FFL for the post office to ship a handgun for you, definitely check. But if you lie about it and they discover it is a handgun, they will confiscate it and get away with it.

Yes, you do have to be a dealer or manufacturer to mail a handgun. However, MrPink123 was talking about a lower receiver for a rifle. A nonlicensee can mail those.

Didn't catch that. You are correct.
