Your best bet is to try and sell it local like on Craigslist or Facebbok marketplace.

Frankly, I would think it would not be allowed here. I cant even sell a vintage collectible keychain multitool with a 1 inch knife blade in it here. They consider it a big ole WMD here I guess.

Also, if it was ever X-Rayed by the shipper, could cause all sorts of issues (even though you say it is inert) and you may be held liable for expenses of evacuation issues and bomb squad disposal.

Best all around to pass on offering this here (in my opinion).

It might be a big seller at a local gun show.
