would this be legal

Just got to thinking when I'm in Europe this summer if I was to buy a full metal AEG could I bring the gun minus any restricted parts home with me then ship the metal receiver to someone with a firearms business licence. That way I’m not personally importing any restricted parts and as far as the government is concerned no law has been broken? This way I could possibly save a couple hundred bucks or even more if I was to get a PTW since it would be allot cheaper over there.

Thanks in advance for the help and sorry if this has been asked but I couldn’t think of what title it might have had believe me I tried

do you have a close friend with a firearms importing licence? If so then why not just have him/her import a gun for you?

Or ship the restricted part to your new address. It like the lottery, it may go thru or may not, but the consequence are less painfull that trying your luck with a border agent...

I don’t personally know someone with the licence so I would have to do some looking around. a friend of mine said he might be able to find a person but that’s a bit of a long shot. I just want to know if it is legal to do it that way but worse comes to worse I could just import all the non restricted parts and get someone to import me a receiver when I’m AV'd if it doesn’t get through the way I had hoped.

Someone sells PTWs in the classifieds for basically exchange rate + 100$, ›our choice of gun and accessories.

It'll all be easier when you're AVed...

As I say this wonít be until summer anyways but if this guy is doing exchange + 100 I might as well buy in country when I get back.
