Purchasing a gun, shipping to an FFL dealer.... questions

I purchased an AK47 from Lancaster arms in Arizona about 3 weeks ago. At the time of the purchase the turn-around time was about a week, but with my luck their office got hit with the flu and most of the people have been sick. They just now got caught up and they said they can ship it to my FFL on Monday. I leave for Afghanistan on Tuesday. So my question is, do I have to be the one to pick up the gun or can my brother pick it up without a power of attorney. Any foreseen legal issues? Can I contract the FFL and tell them what is going on? Wost case scenario I will just cancel the order and reorder when I get home.

Your best best is to contact the FFL you were using and ask them - they are far more familiar with the legal requirements of the FFL than the average board member.

I believe anyone can pick up the gun, but pretty sure it would all have to be done in their name, as if they were purchasing the gun.
It is sent/sold to the FFL originally, then whoever picks the gun up from the FFL fills out the 4473 to purchase it.
But like Jedi said, best to ask your FFL.

I agree I have shipped weapons to a FFL for purchase and I had to fill out the 4473 form to register the gun to me. Worst case scenario have your brother put it in his name and have him sell it to you for $1 and write a bill of sale.

There is currently no official firearm registration in the state of Texas, only sales records.

I went by the FFL and they said the obvious: as long as my brother is able to legally purchase the gun, and he is not purchasing the gun for me because I am legally not allowed to purchase the gun, blah blah blah.... Then it is all legal.
