I am pretty sure it has to be done through an FFL.
Pretty sure long guns are only an issue within NYC. If they are getting shipped upstate it shouldn't be a problem. I have had long guns shipped to me with no issues via USPS but that was from within the US.
I would think to do it "right" you would have to declare what's in the package and when it comes through customs "rifle & shotgun" may throw a flag. You may want to check federal law ans see if there is a process. An FFL may not be necessary but it may make it easier.
I'm going to my local gun shop this morning. I'll ask them and see if they have any advice.
You should go to the BATFE website and do a bit of research: http://www.atf.gov/

I got a chance to go out and shoot a few mags thru the Sig Scorpion yesterday. Out in my back 10 acres, I set up a paper plate on a post and stepped off thirty feet which is further (as most of you know) than a typical SD distance. I put a single dot on it with a sharpie about the diameter of a quarter and shot about one round a second at it for two mags. Only one round was slightly off the dot. I not only love that I can have a two month layoff from any shooting but that the Sig is soo accurate.
I recommend a nice beaver tail. Full power loads will chew your hand up with the stock grip safety. Target loads aren't bad.
I can't believe Colt didn't out fit those with a full BTS and commander hammer set up from the get go.
You have dozens of Celebrator bulls?
At least the gold cup should have had it.
The Delta should have had everything the Combat Elite had....I still would not have bought a 1911 in ten though. Personal preference, .45acp is powerful enough!
Hey, I got a similar one. Mines just a tad different though
Mine is strictly a safe queen however.
I think it does have a beaver tail...
I think it does have a commander hammer
I think there's some pictures in here, somewheres... show us your pythons!
*Shawn - you know my preference in biers... we'll have to crack a few sometime again!
Judging by the pic, looks like it did (assuming its stock).
What year was that one made?
I have a Delta Gold Cup like the one pictured by Lakeguy556, but mine has been fairly heavily used. I bought it in roughly '93 as I had, by then, and thanks to a decade or so of IPSC competition, forsaken my revolver roots and wanted a powerful gun to pack in the woods here in griz country. I still had revolvers, but didn't think they were cool anymore.
My DeltaGC isn't a safe queen. Partly that's because it's well used, and not only that but I also cut/ground the frame to install a serious beavertail shortly after buying it. 1911s without a beavertail chew up the web of my hand. I've used Wilson 10mm mags. The gun shoots pretty well but with robust loads it has some kick to it. That big double recoil spring that came OEM was odd. I replaced it long ago with a full length tungsten guide rod to add a little recoil reducing weight, and a heavy single spring. Interesting gun. I don't shoot it much anymore as I reverted about a decade ago to the 500 S&W revolver for woods carry around here. While I still love semi-autos, I have returned to my revolver roots for most of my handgun shooting.
Marlin 1895, or 1894 (I like having a pistol and rifle that share .44M)
My DE is a 92 and I remember looking at the Gold Cup in the store back then. I seem to remember it had the adjustable sights, but I don't recall any other visible differences.
Long time ago so I could be wrong.
Yup, the GC had an adjustable sight. One of the raps on the GC, both the standard 45ACP version, and the Delta, had to do with the sight. It was/is held in place by a pin and they had a bad habit of shearing off with the sight flying off to parts unknown. I had that happen with a 45 GC I had back around that time. But the Delta had a thicker roll pin and while I wondered if one day it would go into orbit, it never did. I don't know how many rounds I have through the gun, probably 700 or so, but those have been full power loads and the sight and gun have handled it fine so far. I've also found it to be very reliable, cannot recall having had a single malfunction in that gun. It really throws the brass, though, which is a PITA as I handload and end up losing more than I am able to salvage whenever I shoot it.
