    which of the items are restricted?

    laser sight
    trigger systems
    springs (magazine, recoil, etc.)
    moon clip/s
    night stick

    ok, maybe better in the luggage. i'm planning to ask a friend to bring in some accessories / parts for my pistol and would need to make sure that there would not be a violation here.

    After 9/11, any of those you mentioned are all not allowed on board the aircraft. Check them in to avoid any trouble, anyway no matter what, there is no way to break a glock, ever.

    I agree with Toxic, you better not take the risk. I remember after the 9/11, I was not even allowed to handcarry my badminton rackets and my pool cues so how much more for gun parts. Also, I think nowadays even lighters are not allowed to handcarry. As I remember mine was confiscated at the Singapore Airport before boarding.

    I have a friend who periodically flies to the US and he has brought in springs and moon clips with his checked-in luggage. Just tells them they're machine parts. Think the night stick would also be ok. Trigger systems would be a no no. The laser sight, i'm not too sure.

    On a certain day or at a certain time of day, some of these things may go through security. There are stories of people who went home with barrels, slides and so on. Well, you can always try but why bother?;)

    as sir tanduay says, try balikbayan box, aside from contraband pharmaceuticals and gun powder most anything can be stuffed into it.


    my taurus pt92 came home in one of those,


    if you try to handcarry nightstick, it wont be confiscated, you'll be apprehended.

    Guys, can we just state plainly for brawnless which of the items he cited cannot be included in his carry-on and/or check-in baggage, and refrain from publicly suggesting ways to circumvent airline security and Bureau of Customs regulations. Thanks.

    guess these things could bring in some trouble at the airport. i'm planning on lasermax for glock but prices here are something around twice what you would pay for abroad. that goes for accessories too.

    It's a FEDERAL OFFENSE for the shipper and a whole lot of trouble for the receiver. ;m
