Question about an Argentine Mauser 1909

I have one published on GB and the question I got if I can ship it to a C&R licensed.....sorry for my ignorance but I want to be sure that I won't do anything wrong.....this model 1909 is in the list of C&R but should I ship to an FFL? Thanks guys.
Mi Buenos Aires querido........

if it is close to original it is C&R. if it is in a plastic stock or is otherwise significantly re-manufactured so that i no longer has collectibility it is not C&R and needs to go to other type of FFL.

it should be qualified that if it is modified in a recognised period style it can be seen as collectible as representative of that style. for example, a european style african sporter typical of the 1920 or 1950 period.
If the concept of heading on down to the local Home Depot and transforming $100 worth of random pipe bits into a killing machine doesn’t appeal to you, you’re a frikkin' pansy. Also, you’re probably sane and will live significantly longer than I will.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."
