    I've got a guy who wants to buy this old (1957) model 62 Winchester receiver. Can I ship this directly to him? Very confusing when reading about this.

    I think you can ship directly to him if he is an indiana resident and you are shipping to his indiana address.
    I've always wondered if intrastate shipping was allowed since it would be no different than meeting a person and doing the same thing.
    I'm interested in this myself.

    I don't think the guy is in Indiana. He hasn't emailed me back with his state of residence. I don't think I'm going to do this because this could be a felony on ME.
    If it's out of state I think it would have to ship to an FFL, since the receiver is considered to be the gun. And of course you'd have to make sure the FFL accepts shipments from an individual.

    If that is the serialized part, treat it the same as an entire rifle.

    Lots of discussion on shipping rifles here:

    So if intrastate you can ship a firearm directly to another?
    Example I buy a gun from a northern INGO member he can ship that directly to me?

    Good idea. Definitely illegal to ship modern firearm across state lines to a non-ffl.
