    Un-Bubbaing my SKS and worrying about 922r

    Do I have to worry about 922r when un-sporterizing/un-bubbaing a Yugo SKS if the gun falls under C&R territory or will I be a felon if I replace the bubbad parts with original Yugo ones?

    theres the legal answer & theres the common sense answer.

    they aint the same.

    main thing to remember is if you "bought it the way it is".... 922r isnt usually a problem for you. (its on the seller)

    IF you alter it to make it a certain way............... it could be a problem. will it be? or is it anything id worry about? depends on where you live & whos gonna be looking at it anyway?
    say what you mean & mean what you say!

    Do they even put 922r parts on an SKS? I don't recall ever seeing US made parts on them.

    Good question.
    The way the law reads it could possibly be illegal to return it it original configuration.

    The law is the law, however... https://trac.syr.edu/tracreports/crim/492/ Table 2 shows from 2008-2017 four people were prosecuted for 922r violations, two in 2014 and two in 2017. Those were most likely add on charges where they were already looking at those 4 people for something else. In those cases they have bigger things to worry about than the 922r charge.

    I know the old Tapco folders that EVERYBODY put on their $99 Norinco back in the day, became verboten in November of '90.

    Beyond THAT...
    We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. - John Adams, 2nd U.S. President -
