    Default exporting castings ?

    So, I was planning to add a .45 1911 to my 9mm 1991A1. I wanted to complete a 60-80% frame but I have been told that US Federal laws prohibit casting export. Is it true ? thanks !

    Good question. I am not sure on that one. But no weapons that were sold by our Govt., or on the lend lease to foreign Guberments. are "supposed" to be importable, back into this Country. Export I dont know.
    Then again. If you have deep pockets. Know the correct people to pay off $$$. You can pretty much do whatever you want.
    When in doubt. Call or write the ATF. Ask for the legal dept.

    Are you asking if you can export a casting out of the US or into the US?

    I'm guessing out, most companies won't ship any firearm parts out of the country, private sellers sometimes will if they feel comfortable with it.

    I think the brother-in-law rule applies.

    To a private citizen an unfinished casting is a paper weight. It is sold as such within this country. I would feel comfortable sending such a paperweight to my brother-in-law anywhere in the world. I would have no more hesitation sending my brother-in-law lost keys, family photos, or shoelaces.

    However, I would send nothing of the kind to a complete stranger as it would involve a profit motive of some kind.
