Default Does anyone know

If it is illegal to mail enblocs out of the country? Is it illegal to mail them to Australia?

Yes, if they were made for the US Government. Shipping of US Military items is not allowed without an export license and the recipient needs an import license.

Now there people who do it. But if found by US Customs they will impound the shipment.

You will not have someone come to your house but you will receive a letter explaining the impound.

I have been down that road and that is how I know. I shipped a scope to Canada and was impounded. The letter explained the export laws including US military items and I had to pay $275.00 to get it back.

I think if you send something to another country, you have to due a custom form.

This is a crazy law. I know what I would say on the package. Scrap metal.

Australia was our alley in WWI, and WWII, and today.

Officer, can I help you?

Officer: Yes, you sent three enblocs to a foreign country. We need to investigate this as you violated US law.

Me: Well come out and get me at my house.

This would not end well.

Come on guys, this is not sending firearms outside the US.

These parts sell all over the world on ebay. I hear no people going to jail.

The OP asked, "is it illegal?" I think the answer is yes (not no) unless you get an export license.

Doesn't matter. The law is the law. I deal with it all the time, and I do a lot of business with Australia. I am sometimes directed by the US government to provide ITAR material to Australia, and I still have to get an export license. I employ a person full time to manage this.

What you do is your business.

Is it illegal? Yes
Do sellers on eBay do it all the time? Yes
Do parts get confiscated at customs? Yes
Is it worth taking the chance and getting made a example off? IMO, No
