Anyone know if I can sell an SL8 to G36 stock block and/or the stock itself to someone in the UK? I don't believe that they are a controlled part here in the US but have no idea about its export to the UK.

LOL might I invite you here? (1st link below)
With that said, I scrapped the deal thanks to my fellow hkpro members kind advise. I had no clue either. Ima not gonna have 14 armed ATF gas masked agents in full battle dress with 416's in hand gassing then exercising a forced entry on my home in the middle of the night; rough me up throwing me down to the floor with the knee to the back, treating me like im bin ladden himself in front of my wife and children because I sold a BBL to a guy in CA. All while agent Smith has that 'evil grin' on his face saying MUAHAHAHHAHAH as you get escorted to the back of some unmarked white mini van, never to be seen or herd from again. But hey, they are just doing their job..... You can find customers here my friend. It isn't worth even taking a chance. Be sure you know all your laws. Hey that sounded like it would make a cool movie. Kind of :p

Of course they can be nice. They can also be not nice. They are human. I work along side of LEO's in my field of work. Some of them are grumpy, some are nice. Some are fat, some are slim. Some are black, brown, and even white. I doubt they would be nice to you if you were exporting parts outside the USA without the proper paperwork... Was just advising our Junior Member Chopstix Kid to check cross his T's and dot his I's because that hypothetical situation could happen.... Ignorance of laws isn't an excuse to break them....



You are exclusively responsible for determining which laws are applicable to you and HKPRO.COM LLC always recommends that you retain legal counsel if you are uncertain as to what the law is and how it applies to your particular situation. NFA laws are strictly enforced by the BATFE and other law enforcement organizations.

“Violations of the National Firearms Act are punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison and forfeiture of all devices or firearms in violation, and the individual's right to own or possess firearms in the future. The Act provides for a penalty of $10,000 for certain violations. A willful attempt to evade or defeat a tax imposed by the Act is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $100,000 fine ($500,000 in the case of a corporation), under the general tax evasion statute. For an individual, the felony fine of $100,000 for tax evasion could be increased to $250,000.”

Please refer to the BATFE publication NFA Handbook.

For your reference, the export of ANY military items (ie, gun parts, tripods, buttons on uniforms) regardless if the items NFA or not, is controlled and regulated by the U.S. State Department. Just search for AECA (Arms Export Control Act), and ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulation). Export permits are needed for EVERYTHING to be legal.

US export restrictions apply to the following:

Complete firearms
Firearm receivers
Magazines
Barrels
Optics
Optic mounts
A part or collection of parts valued over US$100.

Obviously, you value your own gear however you like.
