according to usps.com - says arms and ammo not allowed but nothing about parts. Many times countries will say no arms, ammo, or parts. I've shipped rifle parts in those cases but a glock slide...i duno

I don't think I'd bother with it, even if it was legal. There's got to be a butt load of red tape for something like that.

There may be ATF or Customs restrictions about shipping weapons / components outside of the US, that you may not be aware of.

You can place illegal drugs in an envelope and mail it too, doesn't mean it's legal.

Just the potential for breaking a law would make me hesitant to do it. I'm sure you can sell it here in the US easily, why bother selling it overseas?

Plus, a lot of scammers operate overseas, are you sure you're not being scammed?

I wouldn't take the word of some gun board expert on this. Call the French Embassy or a French Consulate and find out for yourself.
Where did I claim to be a "gun board expert". I made no claims otherwise, made one statement. What are you the thread police? Get over yourself.

Excuse me Joe. I was not speaking about you specificly, but the gunboard "experts" in general that one encounters on the web. I should have been more clear about that.

I know that in some European countries, the slide is the gun for legal purposes. Don't know about France specifically. There was a time when some enterprising guys were buying frames in Europe and slides/barrels in the US so they could assemble a gun with no serial numbers at all. I think that's why Glocks now have serial numbers on the slide and barrel in the US even though those do not constitute a weapon here.

Well, you might not get into trouble, but the guy buying it might. Might want to check and if you do and it's illegal in france, don't go to france for a while.

Under the Patriot Act, weapons smuggling could be classed as a terrorist act. You could be renditioned and tried secretly in France. Once Constitutional protections are violated, they are violated for everyone.

It's not classified as a firearm under US law so I don't see what you need to worry about, it's the guy on the other ends problem.
