    I found a good friend that lives out of state, a USED Colt Slide at a Local Shop and he said just ship it through the Post Office, Priority.

    Is That OK?

    I always ship FedEx but he's paying shipping and trying to get out CHEAP.

    The only part of the gun that is legally a firearm is the frame, so yes, any other parts can be shipped via UPS or even US Mail.

    Slide - Yes. Only the frame is burdened with all the restrictions.:scrutiny:

    Yep.

    That's "machine parts."

    Like Z and rh say, only part that's technically a "gun" is the frame.

    definitely, it is not considered a firearm without the frame.

    Yep, and they fit nicely in those little cardboard boxes that the USPS sells.

    Remember that you aren't required to tell them it's a pistol slide. You're probably better off not mentioning anything about guns. :D
