    Here's how they say to do it:

    Please call for specific instructions before sending in your gun

    When sending your gun to Hi-Point for repair, please include the following information: name, full address (including street, city, state, zip code), phone number, e-mail address, serial number and model of firearm, and a description of the needed repair.

    Also include all magazines that you use with your gun so our technicians can test the gun with its magazines. And finally, please be certain there are no live rounds shipped with the gun.

    Hi-Point Firearms
    1015 Springmill Rd.
    Mansfield, OH 44906
    419-747-9444
    419-747-6095

    What you will do is box it up, don't put ANYTHING on the box to say it is a gun, and I wouldn't even include the word "Firearms" in the address, just "Hi Point" should be enough, then take it to UPS, and they will charge about $12-$15 to ship it.

    They used to say just label it as "machine parts", but that seems to scare some folks. IMHO, they ARE machines, and since they are non-functional, they are certainly just parts, but I'm sure some lawyer would disagree.:rolleyes:

    If your local UPS store are dinks, they will want to tell you it MUST be over-nighted, and will try to charge you $50 or so.

    If they do that tell them to suck it, and go find a local "Mailbox" place that does UPS drops, and ship it from there.

    The other option is to get your local gun store (LGS) to do it for you . Many charge for the service, like maybe $25 plus shipping, which can make it expensive.

    Welcome!! :) Here is the link to customer service.
    They have phone numbers by the caliber of your gun.
    Just so you know, they only have one person answering the phones. So you may get many busy signals. Just keep trying and you will get the person. It has been said the best time is early morning just when they open. Not sure of time. Perhaps 8 AM???
    They will take very good care of you and your gun!! Promise!

    What type of 9mm is this? Pistol or carbine?

    It makes a difference in how it is legally shipped.

    Only if you use USPS, right?

    Which no one has suggested.;)

    I don't have the Fed regulation at hand at the moment, but as I recall it states you must ship any handgun as per the shippers rules. And, that a Pistol has to be declared. UPS and Fed require at least 2nd day I think it is.

    I ran into this 2 years ago I think it was with a Swedish Lahti m/40 pistol I bought on Gun Brokers. Guy wanted to ship regular UPS labeled Automotive parts. But, I had seen Gun Brokers reference on shipping one. So, I do have it with reference to Federal Regulations.

    (B9) May a nonlicensee ship a firearm by carrier?
    A nonlicensee may ship a firearm by carrier to a resident of his or her own state or to a licensee in any state. A common or contract carrier must be used to ship a handgun. In addition, Federal law requires that the carrier be notified that the shipment contains a firearm and prohibits common or contract carriers from requiring or causing any label to be placed on any package indicating that it contains a firearm.
