(Just to be fair, maybe ALL handguns/firearms have to have barrel installed on import. I've only dealt with subs.)
First part is correct. 12.6 with the barrel removed (as receiver only) are in the prohibited classification and prohibs cannot be imported. If a child entry with a longer barrel exists in the FRT, only pistols with that barrel length can be imported.

For the second part: Receivers/frames only that are normally restricted _can_ be imported as such. IRG imported a "receiver only" restricted firearm for me.
