Hope people hear in the U,S. Have sense enough to stay away from this. And the seller should explain that it can not be shipped to certain country's LIKE THE U,S. And ya i cant believe that this wasn't flagged. especially on Ebay .

My guess is that e-Bay has no clue about this component, as these have been listed off and on for some time. They are perfectly legal in most of Europe. It's only the United States that defines the RSP as the "firearm." The seller may or may not know (or care) about the fact that these are contraband in the U.S. It would be a good thing if he added "will not ship to the U.S." just to ward off those here who might be foolish enough to try it. But he has no obligation to do that from Poland. Just apply the old "buyer beware" standard and all is good.

Im sure some idiot will. Then we wonder why we an no longer get Legal parts shipped to us in the U,S. Just adds to their reasoning and justification.

Keep in mind it could be a sting. As everyone knows they are fishing with those filter kits and auto glock inserts. I would suspect even if the seller is valid, they will watch who the buyer is.

i think there is a simple explenation why this stuff is on ebay right now
remember europe had the AVG, it,s a new law that protects people personal information, been used and shared also via the internet, introduced at may 25th 2018
that was one of the reasons, auction sites like gunbroker blocked all sellers/buyers registerd in and from europe
i guess this ebay sellers use to be on gunbroker, were he cant sell anymore, and he is trying his luck now on ebay.

but yea, it,s tricky to do so. the new law that became effictive also in germany at september 1sth also makes it forbidden to own,/ buy ore sell stuff like this, but the guy is from poland, so he can simply ignore all of that

You have to assume anything like this is a set-up. As has already been said, best to stay away from it and not dwell on what might have been. As far as eBay knowing gun stuff, they don’t. I see barreled actions being sold as “barrels” pretty often, usually sold as estate items by survivors who don’t know what it is, or by estate
Brokers who also don’t know what it is.

Those fools at ebay don't even know which end of the gun to look down. I have seen more and more of this stuff on ebay the past few years and wonder how people think they are going to buy it and get away with it without anyone knowing? You know there is some bubba out there that thinks no one is watching (right) and you just cant fix stupid. I am actually surprised we do not hear of more arrests involving such cases but I did hear about the sting they did on the guy from Russia with the AK parts and they got quite a few guys in that operation on both sides of the pond so be careful with whom you deal with guys.

Too funny. They wouldn't even let me sell 1919a4 and M2/M3 Rivets on ebay. Apparently their policy does not allow the sale of "assault weapons" parts of any kind. Even generic rivets. MSG

Aw c'mon, MSG. We all know those are custom made, high quality, extremely dangerous assault belt fed weapon rivets that, in and of themselves, are a grave threat to humanity.

I will probably need some more of those soon myself! 😈

BATFE used to play a lot on Ebay. Many times, a long long time ago, I would see all the parts needed (3 or 4) to convert a normal GI M1 carbine to a M2 carbine (machine gun). I would report it to Ebay and Ebay would NOT remove it. That is back in the days, if you complained about anything, Ebay would pull it, even if it was not even close to being a black listed item.

Ebay: Somebody bought them @ $385.90 (US) + $28.32 (US) shipping on October 15th.
That is pretty cheap price, to loose your freedom and ownership rights.

On the other hand, sometimes this stuff just slips through without a hitch. Also, perhaps the buyer is not American. I am not sure how one can tell.

Just think for around $400 someone bought the chance of a new boyfriend (Bubba) and several years of "Free room and board" showing up at the door with that washing machine part.

Stay Safe
