    Is it legal to disassemble, and just send the frame directly, w/o an FFL?

    The frame or grip piece or receiver, and recently the fire control unit, depending on the design of the gun, is the registered gun for all legal purposes. You can send the slide, barrel, grip plates through the mail as if it was cup cakes, but not "the gun".

    If you have your FFL for grip making/gunsmithing, you could bypass other ffls and send it directly back to the customer. And he to you.

    Whelp, I kind of figured this would be the case. I think we've figured out a way to get a good fit on the grips without having the gun sent to me, so that worked out. It's kind of retarded that I can't just have it sent to my local FFL and pick it up though. Maybe someday we can do away with some of these idiotic laws.
