Default "Pre-Ban" AKM-47S

I've been given the opportunity to buy a Norinco AKS-47M imported in 1984. The owner says it's "pre-ban" but I'm not sure what that even means. Can it be transferred to a new owner? I'm not well educated in these kinds of transactions and do not want to do anything illegal.

firelt,

All the pre-ban stands for it was imported prior to 1994 When the Stupid Bradey Bill went into effect and lasted until 2004. By the way it accomplishes ZERO! Since only 1% of the crimes committed during that 10 year period were committed with rifles. Anyway the weapon is perfectly legal to purchase and own. But I would not wait long with the goofballs we have in office trying to ban the sale of all what the term Assault Rifles ! Which are not Assault Rifles I might add they are semi auto rifles. Assault Rifles are full auto. Anyway if you can purchase it for a reasonable price, it functions and is in good position you are good to go! ******* However if the "Riverside" on your avatar section is Riverside in the state of Commiefornia you need to check with one of the other guys here on the forum or call a local gun dealer! I live in Tennessee and know what the position on such a weapon is in the majority of the other states. California is another ball game! There are certain restriction there on ARs like mag buttons, and other similar weapons like the AKs. that could violate their crazy laws.

Yeah, sadly it is in Ca. If I do buy it it has to go through a local FFL/Gunsmith for some minor molestation to install a "bullet button". *Sigh*, sometimes I can't wait to leave this place.......

ALL Norinco AK's and SKS's are "pre-ban" as that term applies to Federal law. Kali is its own world.

The model of AK you wanted to purchase is specifically banned for sale or importation into California. Transfers in-state are a convoluted proposition at best. I've never seen the NORINCO "AKS-47M" designator for a carbine made by NORINCO, but I have seen the "AKM-47S" designator. That specific make/model was banned. If the carbine was not registered to you during the grace period before the initial ban was in place, then I would not attempt to buy it. California intends to prevent transfers or the heirs of possessors of the banned weapons from inheriting them. The stated goal is disarmament, plain and simple. They're intent on achieving that goal there, to what end I do not know.

If you want to own such a weapon, my advice would be to leave the state and find a new home. That said, please keep all the liberals locked in their utopia out there. We don't need their pea-brained ideas here in Texas. They've been coming here in droves because they don't want to pay their taxes, but they then try to re-create utopia here.
