Also covered under § 119.1 if I'm reading correctly. This would exempt certain activities (listed) from applying parts 129, 133, 137, or 139. As I said I'm not a lawyer, in fact from our lawyers point of view this has been interpreted different ways multiple times by different FSDO offices. I'd consult a lawyer and the local FSDO, but it looks possible....

I really think you’re fishing.

The governing FAR:

§ 61.113 Private pilot privileges and limitations: Pilot in command.
(a) Except as provided in paragraphs (b) through (h) of this section, no person who holds a private pilot certificate may act as pilot in command of an aircraft that is carrying passengers or property for compensation or hire; nor may that person, for compensation or hire, act as pilot in command of an aircraft.


Seems clear. Read b through h for narrow exceptions.

Which do not cover me getting paid to ferry a plane. Stipulated I am a Commercial Pilot, but to my knowledge, without at least a Class 2 Medical I cannot exercise Commercial privileges.

Again do, I would love for you to prove me wrong - it would open up opportunities for me to earn some extra income.

That is correct. Your pilot privileges is limited based on the level of medical certification you hold. Even if you were ferrying a LSA for hire you would need a second class medical.
Sorry I couldn't resist.
