What would you do?

Post by LenV on 7/22/2014, 6:29 pm

I am bidding on a very nice barrel for my 22/45 on Gunbroker. I have sent the seller an e-mail letting him know that the barrel on a 22/45 is actually the receiver and has the serial number on it. I have received no response and they still have it listed as " no ffl " required. Would you keep bidding and hope it works out? Am I right that it requires an FFL? Thanks for any input.

The person doing the mailing may not be the one doing the advertising on gun broker.    If I know the law correctly, depending on your state, the onus is on them to send it to you a legal way.  It is not your responsibility to see that it is shipped correctly.

There is a possibility that they are selling "only" the barrel and not the entire receiver, in which case, the bid may already be too high.

My understanding is serial numbered items must be shipped to an FFL.

I'd call the gun shop at the number listed and point that out to them it would be terrible if some clerk not knowing any better lost them their FFL.  Yes the item is not complete (no bolt) but the part they are selling has the serial number and I wouldn't take the chance if I were them.

You are ok it's their responsibility to ship it correctly.

The barrel assembly on the Ruger pistols is the registered part and must go through a FFL. I would not send funds until he/she agrees to do a proper transfer.

They describe the rear sights in the add so I'm thinking it is for everything shown. I quit bidding when there was no response but would go quite a bit higher. It only has 24 hours to go so I will keep watching and wondering. I don't think I will bid more until they figure it out.

So am I to understand that the frame of a Ruger 2245 does not have a serial number on it?   Or are both the frame, and the receiver serial numbered items?

The frame does not have a serial number. Yes, I know that's weird.

It occurred to me, in my devious little mind, that if I could by a 2245 frame, and find a way to put in a pretty good four pound trigger, and attach an old Caspian slide that I have,  I would have a really good dry fire device that would be legal in Japan.

My thought would be just make sure I stayed legal on my end.  Not much you can do about the other end.

Once you make payment, all bets are off.  Better off staying on the "up and up" on this one.

Good luck
