Most airlines don't have a problem with passengers flying with firearms, as long as they're declared and properly stored according to regulations, but do you have to declare that you're bringing a stripped lower on a flight, since the lower receiver is what is considered the firearm?

I definitely wouldn't try to stick it in my carry-on bag, but would you have to tell them at the ticket counter that you have it?

Yes, it is a firearm according to Federal law so you must declare it and check it in at the ticket counter in a locked, hard, checked bag.

when i bought my serbu 50 bmg, the "receiver" i got was 2 pieces of metal pipes welded together.

but what made it worth $600 is the serial number stamped on the side of it...

I always bring a stripped receiver if I am traveling with valuables.

That way I get to actually lock my bag/case. If it gets lost and they don't find it fast enough I'll call the local and national media about the missing "assault weapon" in the airport.

Like go directly to jail?

Californians can't directly buy lowers in Texas without violating Federal law, and must run it thru a CA FFL.

I thought if you can own it in Ca.(Legally) and you do 10 day wait in texas (Following Ca. procedure) it's kosher ? ( Ca.Posters here buy weapons in other states do they not during travel) This should be fleshed out is OP saying he will fly out of Ca. with his lower and back with said lower ???

No, Fed law says CA folks have to run thru a CA FFL.

A TX FFL can't sell to a Californian directly.

And if a Californian buys a gun in a TX parking lot, the Feds don't like that either.

I thought they just argued that buying them in a parking lot is just fine if it's at a gunshow...or does it have to be in an Alameda county parking lot?


Meanwhile, Texans can buy all the AR lower receivers they want in Tennessee or Arkansas and residents of those can do the same. Slaves of this state, however, have less federal rights because because the fed can hold state laws binding out of state...disgusting. A post Nordyke suit on this would be very nice indeed.

You have to be a resident of that state.

Unless you have a C&R & it's a 1949 Russian SKS your buying ?

The stripped lower is a firearm, regaurdless if it's functional or not it's still a firearm. It's like wanting to board a plain with a Glock pistol, but there's no barrel in it. It's still a firearm, functional or not.

Wouldn't you rather just travel with a lowered stripper?
