Hi; I have an SKS that I put into a plastic stock and have some high caps for (the non-detachables, not the AK adapter). When I did that I took off the (rather cheesey) bayonet and nipped the lug corner off. Now I am reading online about removing the lug completely. I tried the ATF website, but.... I'll just say it. I am a lawyer, of the civil type, and the law/ruling makes no sense to me. I can't puzzle it out. What do I have to do to the lug to be legal? Does anyone have any court case cites? Any ATF publications that explain their rules?

When you go to the high cap mag you get ONE and ONLY one of the following features on ANY gun: Bayo and/or Bayo lug Grenade launcher Threaded barrel Flash suppressor Folding/collapsing stock Pistol grip stock. Illuminated sights You can legally have ALL these items on an SKS with the FIXED magazine. Once you go for the detachable high cap mag, 922r kicks in and you are restricted to ONE feature.

Okay, that's what I read into too. Now, assuming that my magazine is one, since it is not welded on, and my stock is two (black scope style, so the ATF could maybe call it a grip in their world), what is a removal of the lug? Enough so it does not work, or all metal, or leaving a nub?

Except, since it's imported, it has to meet the 89 import ban restrictions, unless it's a pre-89. That may restrict you from having the flash hider, bayonet lug or pistol grip without the appropriate US parts content.
