Gun Parts are prohibited in carry on baggage. They must be in checked baggage.

See the link:

TSA Permitted and Prohibited Items List

it took me about 10 seconds to find this list on Google.

I no longer fly. I take the train.

My rule has all ways been if in doubt declare the item. If it gets stolen file a claim against the airline.

Shouldn't have taken 10 seconds since I provided the link in my last post.

The trouble is not whether the parts are "allowed" in checked baggage. The trouble is if the parts need to be declared.

The rule doesn't specifically say no and BELIEVE me, if it doesn't say no, someone in TSA will find a reason it implies yes.

I once ASSumed that the definition was the same as BATFE, and attempted to carry on a stripped XD slide that I was taking to have sights installed. I was instructed to to place it in my checked luggage which they retrieved for me. They were nice about it, as they knew I was relying on the federal definition of what constitutes a firearm.
