View Full Version : What's legality of upgrading pistol receiver?
I have an old Glock 19 pistol and noticed Glockmeister.com offers a replacement receiver. The deal is you have to send in your old receiver, they strip all internal parts off it and install them on a brand new receiver. They have to destroy the old receiver and the new one you receive has a different serial number.
It sounds like a great way to update an old Glock but are there any additional legal requirements/paperwork that has to be dealt with when doing this--especially in California? Thanks.
Are you saying you wore out a G19 receiver?
Nope, I'm saying $155 to upgrade the receiver to finger grooves, thumb rest and light rail isn't a bad deal.

I'm pretty sure that's going to have to be sent back to you to a CA FFL and ou are going to have to DROS and wait - since it will have a new serial number.

RUMPLED is right, S.A. replaced my 1911 frame, new gun, new DROS, 10 day wait, although it is exempt from the one handgun in 30 day restriction.
How does that work? You make arrangements with a local FFL to receive the pistol? It sounds like you're "transferring" it to yourself in a way.

Think of it more as a trade. You sell them yours, and they sell you a new one for the same price. You have to DROS the new one.
