ITAR gets sticky.
Also we had someone here... from... somewhere? He said they could get complete full auto receivers and kits for days but they cannot import barrels. In the US we can get kits (although pricey) just no receiver. Barrels used to be cool until Clinton.

As of November 22, 2005
ATF open letter to Federal Firearms Licensed Importers. It shall be unlawful to import any frame, receiver, and or barrel of such firearms that would be prohibited if assembled. However the ATF recognizes barrels that do meet the sporting clause may be importable if they meet certain requirements. Read more by clicking the link below.
It is certain no more Part Kits will be imported with their barrel if they do not meet the sporting clause. This means no more threaded barrels, bayonet lugs, basically every current popular kit that’s being imported will not meet the requirements. Importers may be able to import replacement barrels for wsars and other types of sporting weapons that do currently meet sporting requirements. However these barrels will not be similar to the current ones since they will not posses a threaded barrel or a bayonet lug. It is likely once importers run out of current inventory the price of these part kits will raise drastically.
