922 is a pain to fully understand. I don’t know that anyone has ever been charged with a violation of it. As I understand it once you modify an SKS with certain features you have created an illegal foreign “assault weapon” The only way to rectify that is to have the proper number of American made parts to make it legal. There are only certain parts that qualify for the parts count. The SKS forums have more information, but even they seem convoluted on the issue.922? If I understand the 922 important ban correctly, any semi auto that came into the US before Feb 1, 1989 is legal but cannot be modified unless it complies with section 922, is that correct? And all the semi autos today from Russia or any other country must comply with 922, so they just ship the barrels and receivers and assemble them in the US, correct?
So, if I modify my pre-ban SKS in any way, I have to comply with 922. That means I cannot put a folding stock on it, or anything unless I end up with the correct number of US parts. I do comply already because I have all the TAPCO parts needed. I just do not like the duckbill magazine
What I was asking about is modification they do where the cut the duckbill off of the Tapco stock. I was thinking maybe his was one of theirs. Here is a video showing the modification. How to modify polymer magazines for the SK-15/17 - Bing video Anyway that is what I was asking whether he had the modified Tapco mags.
Anybody modfied their SKS like that?
For a Chicom, I though you needed a usa stock, gas tube cover, gas piston, and mag follower ( magazine) to be “legal”. But again, I cannot be certain of that. Do not take that as legal advice.
