Default Some things never change

I have never wanted a high-capacity mag for my SKS until now. I didn't mind others having them. but I didn't feel a need to have one myself. So why now? Because someone told me I shouldn't have one.Because someone is trying to ban them.
I didn't want one. They say I can't have one. Now I want 2!
Geeze! Will I ever grow up?

Be aware of 922r, it's a B.S. law but a non compliant rifle can get you ten years. I've never heard of anyone being busted, but why take the chance.

Here's a calculator.

Depends on the gun. All Chinese SKS's are pre-ban so 922r does not apply. Some of the others, mainly Yugo's were imported post ban.

Thanks. I'll check it out. But here's the really childish thing...... I'll probably never change out the mag. They will probably just sit in the safe.
Like I said, childish. Some things never change. Tell me I can't have and all the sudden I want.
I'm a little embarrassed

Really? I was under the impression that all guns had to be compliant, regardless of import date, at least that was my understanding.
