How to ship MGs

Recommended Posts

I am not looking to start a tirade on shipping companies, I am seriously looking for a legal solution. I have a C&R.

Fed Ex will “not open new accounts for firearms dealers” (so I was told today)

UPS will not ship Machineguns

USPS?

Ship through a FFL dealers account

Are there any other options?

Im a dealer and will only use usps now.  if its a MG, USPS registered mail.

Fed ex will not allow small time dealers, and UPS like to steal stuff and not pay insurance..

I have firearms insurance with Collectibles Insurance - they offer plans that cover loss during shipping.

USPS insurance is fine but can get pricey.

If you are only doing a few items it may be worth it to see if a FFL will ship it for you, covered by their insurance - it may be cheaper.

Hi,

FWIW, watch the "not concealable" clause in USPS.  USPS has their own definitions of firearms they will or will not ship w/o the folks at ends having a real FFL (C&R doesn't count to USPS).  I've spent much time reading all USPS rules.  If you can do it, USPS Registered & Insured.

Enjoy,

ps.  Off subject a bit, but if you need to ship in Uzi SMG and ship it with a 16" barrel,  it would no longer be concealable in the rules of USPS?  Easy for Uzi, hard for Thompson :(
