Imported rifle question
 
I recently purchased a Yugoslavian SKS. I read a lot about that I should change parts to Made in the U.S.A. parts for some reason or other, but I can't find out why. Why should I change parts to U.S.A. made? Anyone here have an answer to this question? I await your replies, patiently.

I believe that only counts if you start modifying it. A stock sks can be kept that way without worrying about the compliance issues... Someone else here should know more about the subject.

As long as you do not modify it into an "evil assault rifle" by changing out the stiock to a pistol grip/folder/collapsible, add a detachable magazine or flashhider, you have nothing to worry about.

SKS's are exempt from the provisions under section 922r because they have fixed magazines and non pistol grip fixed stocks.

So basically if you start, you have to go all the way. All or nothing in other words. I've wondered about this myself.

I upgraded my stock to a butler creek synth stock, which is MUCH more comfortable than the original. But it is not a pistol grip or collapsible.
