I have a question, I know it is illegal to cross auto knives from state to state however, I heard if you ship it in parts and assemble it in your area that defeats that, however, I also heard you can legally ship automatic knives through the post office. I wanted to ask how true is this?
I posted this in another thread and just thought of more to add.
I have heard of this also happening to bali's that they cannot be imported but can have the parts imported or sent in as a "Kit" put together here and sold without any problems. I know I have ordered knives (mostly fixed and manual knives) but I also read (honestly cannot remember where) it is not against the law to mail automatic knives and/or balis but they are illegal to take across state lines (dosnt make too much sense to me)
I was mostly curious about this.

In terms of ordering an automatic knife online they will ship them anywhere. I live in New York and ordered two Microtech automatic OTF knives from notyourmamasknives.com and they didn't require any documentation that I was a LEO or the I was allowed to carry them. They just have a general disclaimer stating that they will ship them to any state however you (the buyer) must know your local laws and if it is legal to carry them or not.
Colt New Agent, Dan Wesson V-Bob, Glock 19,20SF, 23, 26, 27, 29, 30SF, 36, Kahr P380 w/CT, PM9, PM45, CW9(SOLD), Kel-Tec P32, P3AT, PF9(SOLD), Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry II, Stainless Pro TLE/RL II (SOLD), Rohrbaugh R9s, Ruger LCP w/CT, LCR, SP101 S&W J-Frame 638 w/CT, M&P 340 w/CT, Walther PPK/S

It is illegal to carry them in PA, but you can own them as a 'curio' item. Meaning a collector and have it displayed as such in our home.

You can and I did get one via mail. As I'm reluctant to mention the source ATF is everywhere) I can tell you that the place is in Utah.
Just remember, it ain't illegal till they catch you!!!

Automatic knife laws are ignorant. You can open a knife with a thumb stud just as fast, and you can unsheath a fixed blade even quicker.
I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" "Is that a Smith & Wesson 686+ 7 shot or 627 8 shot?" "Does he have a concealed Sig P226 SCT and two spare mags?" You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?
