    As long as you have already filled out the paperwork and it is "yours" just box it up and ship it to a smith and he can ship it back to you when he's done.

    If you're buying an action and having it shipped to a smith he will need to ship it to an FFL holder for you to pick up and fill out the proper paperwork when he's done.

    Insure it as custom machined parts and make sure somebody has to sign for it.

    Very good advise! Package carriers can be very rough in the items that they carry.

    Good advice you've received. I would only emphasize to avoid anything in addressing the box if at all possible that would indicate a gun or gun part...so for example To: John Doe versus John Doe Guns Inc.
