    I'm not sure but your talking about shipping a gun part internationally,It's not the same as shipping interstate AFAIK

    I think you have to go through the Department of State to get permission. Here is an excerpt from the ATF FAQ's.

    (L2) Does a licensee need an export license to export a firearm? [Back]

    The GCA does not require export licenses. However, most firearms and ammunition must be exported in accordance with the provisions of the Arms Export Control Act of 1976. Regulations implementing this Act generally require a license to be obtained from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, Department of State, PM/DDTC, SA-1, Room 1200, 2401 E St., N.W., Washington, DC 20037; (202) 663-1282.

    The export of sporting shotguns and ammunition for sporting shotguns is regulated by the U.S. Department of Commerce rather than the State Department. An export license is generally needed to export these shotguns and ammunition. For further information, contact them at their nearest district office or the Bureau of Industry and Security, Outreach and Educational Services Division, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th St. & Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, DC 20230, (202) 482-4811.

    When exporting NFA firearms, ATF Form 9 must be completed and approved by ATF prior to export.

    [22 U.S.C. 2778, 27 CFR 479.114 and 479.116]

    Technically, the slide is not a firearm and the rules and regs posted here deal with complete firearms and ammunition. One thing that has to be addressed however is that while US law allows shipments of all parts except the receiver, what does Argentine law say? Once it enters their sovereign territory, different laws apply. They might have prohibitions or rules governing all firearms parts.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I agree that it's unlikely that a slide would pose any problems whatsoever, but it makes sense to verify via Argentine authorities. There's certainly no problem from the U.S. end.

    On an unrelated note, where in Argentina, and if you're not Argentine, why are you there? I lived outside of BA for several years as a child a loooooong time ago. One of the best experiences of my life. Absolutely wonderful country and people.
