WTF an FFL for a damn spring!!

Well Brownells and Marlin just pissed me off. This is the stupidest shit I've ever heard. Appearently I have to have an FFL for them to ship a spring and a firing pin for a Marlin 17hmr!! WTF? I said I would understand if it was a reciever or something but damn it's a spring and a pin. Anybody ever heard of this?

Either someone doesn't understand the law, or they had the order wrong. A firing pin and a spring does not require a 4473, so there's no reason for an FFL to receive them.

Thats what I told the lady, she said it was a factory rule and had nothing to do with Brownells. Just stupid

just get it on resale like suggested previously. I've ordered many parts directly from manufacturers and they've never asked me for my FFL.

It may be a liability issue with some manufactures. Since it involves some disassembly of a critical part of the gun it could blow up if improperly installed and kill all concerned! I have ordered all sorts of springs and firing pins from Brownells and others and never had a problem. I do have an FFL filed at Brownells but it's just a C&R (they give me the FFL discount). I know there are some manufactures that will not sell some parts period. The firearm must be sent to the factory for repair and the removal of all non factory parts you may have installed.

Midway has a replacement firing pin for a Marlin 17. $23.49. 30 day wait though. Made by Glend Arms. Glend Arms Mfg. Co. PO Box 361, Secane, Pa 19018 no web page that I can find. Perhaps I could order it for you from Brownells. PM me the part numbers and I could give it a try. Midway also has a striker assembly wih springs.
