I'm sending away for a Marlin 39 .22 breech bolt.
Am I correct that FFL is not required?
No serial number on that part.
No problem years ago; but, I'm lost with all the regs now.

Sending away from where? I'm pretty sure that will have to go through an FFL. Do you know when the gun was manufactured?

Midway, the online parts site.
My pretty Marlin Model 39 S- prefix serial number was manufactured in the 1920s in North Haven CT.

Wait, I read your original post wrong. You're just trying to buy the bolt?

It is confusing because of the laws and because some dealers online won't even ship parts to California or else require FFL just because they want to, I guess.

Midway is really good about shipping stuff here. If they have a problem they'll let you know.

If you have problems ordering on line try calling them. Their computer program isn't the best and may kick out a "no" for some reason. You may be able to get done directly what can't be done by computer.

Generally only the serialized receiver has to go through an FFL. Any other parts should be able to be shipped directly to you.
