The lower is legally a firearm and would need to be checked in the same way any other firearm would be. 4A issues aside trying to bring a firearm to an airport without declaration is not the best of ideas.

NO! Always transport it legally and declare it. Or, you'll be asking us to put money on the books for you. You will need to transport it in a locked container which is approved by both the TSA and your airline. Call your airline and they will advise you on how to procede.

isn't the receiver a firearm in of it by itself as defined by federal laws?

and no amount of "burying" will make it not show up on X-Ray scans. so unless you like being detained and anally probed by a TSA agent... i suggest you just call in in advance and do the whole paperwork/dance for checking in a firearm onto the plane.

Not to mention check bags aside from declared firearms must be locked with TSA accessible locks which means someone would easily steal your firearms parts out of your bag.


Follow the rules.....TSA regs aren't something you wanna mess around with.

So a bag of parts including the lower - must be checked in

Bag of parts minus lower - no check in?

Stipper lower must be in locked container?

Don't worry i'm not trying to smuggle crap through the airport. Just was hoping to get some quick info here without digging.

Correct. The lower is the firearm.

Actually, a friend of mine does a talk about this sort of thing. The conclusion that we came to was as defined by FFA reg's and Fed reg's, you DO NOT need to declare something like a stripped lower receiver, as it does not meet the FAA's definition of a firearm.

You do however, have to declare things like flare guns, which do not meet the federal definition of firearm.

With that said, it's always a GOOD idea to declare your firearms, even if they lawfully don't need to be declared, because then you're allowed to lock your luggage without a TSA-approved lock. It does have to be hard-sided luggage though.

Yeah I don't see why you would NOT want to declare it since it gives you the opportunity to use a much more secure lock (which TSA can't open) than you'd be able to if you don't declare.
