It doesn't matter - all gun parts fall under ITAR. You need a permit from the State Dept. to export gun parts.

Different countries have different import laws, and it can be EASY to break the law.

I wanted to send a couple of magazines to a guy in Denmark a few years ago, and it turns out that magazines (and kind) as well as any magazine parts, are illegal to import into Denmark unless you are a manufacturer with an import license.

Same goes for most gun parts.


So you'll need to look quite closely into the specific laws of the DESTINATION country, about what is legal to bring in, and what isn't. Figuring it out (and not just taking someone's word for it) is usually very difficult, a giant headache, and not worth the hassle.

Just label them as "airsoft" parts.

ITAR is UN bullshit, and I'm all for circumventing it in any way possible. Fuck the UN.

Everything I read in ITAR say it applies to manufacturers of gun parts not individuals. Manufacturers must register their company with the State Department but no requirement for the average citizen.

Just make sure the receiving party can have the parts in the country they are in. There are some items like EOTECHs that are on a restricted list. An "End Users Certificate" needs to be approved before shipping the restricted parts overseas.
