"Because of US ITAR laws, we can not ship ship to a APO."

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is an ITAR and an APO??

I was in the Bravocompany website and tried to check out an M4 upper with a 10.5" barrel. It still proceeded me to checkout but it aslo gave me that "notice".

Thanks for you help.

ITAR: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Traffic_in_Arms_Regulations

APO: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Army_Post_Office#U.S._Military_Postal_Service_.28MPS.29

Basically they're saying that they will not ship to an overseas address and that includes shipments directly to US servicemembers overseas.

and tried to check out an M4 upper with a 10.5" barrel.You are aware of the 16" minimum legal barrel length on rifles in the U.S.A. aren't you?

A 10 1/2" barrel would have to have a blessing from the ATF, and a $200 buck SBR tax stamp, unless you are putting it on an AR-15 pistol lower.

Perhaps he is considering putting it on his duty weapon while in theater? I think that I've read of soldiers doing that before in Iraq.
