Putting a hunting stock and low capacity mag on an AK47/74 or any other military rifle takes it out of that classification and any parts can be installed that don't remove it from sporter configuration. Like a pistol grip and hi-cap magazine. He had to install more U.S. made parts other than the grip in order to make it legal.
So, in short he changed it from a hunting style to a tactical style.
