Default Are the Russian/Chinese (Type 56) SKS "18 USC 922r Compliance"?

I'm trying to figure out if the original Russian SKS or Chinese (Type 56 or Narinco) SKS are "922r compliance".

I want to buy a SKS but am not sure if SKS is federally legal. Also, I'm in CT. Anyone from CT own a SKS? Is the SKS considered an assualt weapon by the definition of CT state law?

FYI, I saw a local gun shop has 3 Narinco SKS and they said those SKS are legal. I'm not sure if any U.S. parts be put on those SKS to make them "922r compliance".

Please share your experience.

Not really sure on the compliance, although if sold in a shop they should be. However, having said that we are not legal advice givers on here and you should not take our word as law. Ask a knowledgeable person in your state these questions. Knowledgeable meaning someone who can give sound legal advice on this matter.

I understand Federal law classifies the SKS as a Curio & Relic (C&R) firearm, exempting it from 922r compliance that other non-sporting imports are required to meet, ie: the AK-47. Now if you start modifying it from its original form by adding a pistol grip, larger magazine and/or collapsable stock then 922r compliance is required. Same goes for the Mosin M44, etc.

Again it would be wise to double check this as I'm just repeating what I've heard - and of course check local/state laws.
