    Hi everyone just wondering if aftermarket barrels for hunting, case support or conversion need to be registered in MI? i was wondering because someone told me changing the barrel could result in a ticket or worse but had nothing to back it up. If anyone in law around here has any wisdom about this topic please share. thanks

    The barrel is not the gun so I would think not. I hope someone with facts chimes in.

    The only part of a firearm that needs to be registered is the frame or recceiver. Barrels don't meet the definition of a firearm so they don't count.

    I've not heard of any state with such an insane law, but I'm not in Michigan....I'd call a local gun shop to ask.

    You can't mail a GUN (the frame/receiver).

    You can mail barrels all day and all night.
    Barrel is not a gun, doesn't need registering.

    Thanks Bat masterson i believe i can trust you. the argument he had against me was that if you swap barrels it will no longer match records from firearms registration data...like shooting .40 S&W through a barrel converted glock29 10mm (my case). i just dont want any unpleasant surprises in my future. thanks guys

    So what would you be registering since after market barrels have no serial numbers?
