Mail all parts minus receiver back home. Cut receiver and send pieces home. Have receiver rewelded ( not the best choice but..has been done with garands before) reassemble ? Or leave receiver in pieces, purchase a receiver in states , reassemble and leave cut receiver with it for posterity

Of course, no-one here is advocating breaking the law are they?
of course not like I said retain it as a paper weight and purchase another receiver...
