Question: Mailing a Black Powder kit in SC

Hello all,

I have a question...I've done some research online and I believe that there is not a problem - but I want to make sure.

I'd like to ship a black powder kit (in state). Everything I have found shows this to be legal. Has anyone else had experience with shipping/receiving a black powder kit? I don't think it requires a FFL, but I surely do not want to end up on the wrong side of the law. The kit is a CVA Philadelphia Derringer black powder. Picture below:

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone...

just my 2 cents.

unless its changed i thought black powder was a non gun.

wal mart sells them wiltout paperwork, or they did.

someone will know for sure though.

Technically it a kit not a firearm yet, It's not dangerous, Potentially hazardous or flamable which is what the PO asks so It should be shippable.

Just to be on the safe side, I would use UPS or Fed-X...

If the Post Office happens to randomly x-ray the box and see a barrel....Oh My God...World War 3 will break out....your name will go on a list and the gun will be confiscated...

That won't happen. I've sent and received countless AK and FAL parts kits with barrels no problem. The only thing I wouldn't do is ship it in the original box.

The reason I said what I did was for good reason. I had an IDIOT in Alabama try to send me a New Colt Commander in a trade. He tried to save himself some money. He just wrapped it up and dropped it in the mail box...
Post office found it thru X-rays and turned it over to the Feds...Henry at HHB was my dealer...He can tell you about it...Sure had me worried about dealing with an IDIOT ...and the Post Office...The Idiot lost the Colt...I finally had to pay to get my traded gun shipped back to me...

Good advice from everyone...I thank you all for your guidance. I'll be shipping a few kits this week via UPS. Thanks again.

You right that guy was an idiot however that was a complete gun these are kits and if they do X ray them (which BTW the PO isn't the only ones that X ray) there shouldn't be any flags raised due to it being in pieces.
