Legality of mailing gun for trigger job?
#1
I want to have some trigger work done on my M&P and I'm curious as to how that works. Can I mail it to the armorer, and then have it mailed back to me with no problem? I am concerned about it being stolen in the mail as well. I do know a pair of guys who are glock and M&P armorers, but I'm not sure how much I trust them having the gun overnight. Although maybe I could chill with him as he does the work if it doesn't take a super long time. (I want to get the apex DCAEK kit installed, and maybe a night sight as well).

Save your money and do it yourself. It's very easy. All you need are a hammer, punches, and youtube.

USPS will not allow handguns to be mailed unless they are mailed by USPS registered FFL holder. UPS and FedEx will only allow handguns to be shipped via their overnight service and the person receiving the package must be an FFL holder. If the your armorer is not an FFL then shipping is a no-go.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

How in the world are there so many armorers that do work on firearms via mail then? They can't all be FFL holders. I must be missing something.

The main reason I don't want to do it myself is because I'm worried I might not be able to get the rear sight perfectly aligned afterwards. It has to be removed/moved in order to change out one part.

Align the rear sight as most center as you can, then take it to the range, shoot groups with 5 rounds at a time, and adjust as needed with your hammer and punch. Just make sure you tell the range employees you're going to be adjusting your rear sights so they don't get worried when they see you hammering on your gun on the firing line.

I don't think that's an option, I'd have to use a vice to do that properly.

One thing I thought of is marking the sight and the slide with whiteout before I start messing with it, and then hammering it into alignment that with that as a guide.

They are ffls. Generally a Type 1.
They must have this to take your firearm to work on it for pay. Dispositions in & out.

But they can mail it directly to me?

When it's being sent back yes.
