I'm thinking about buying the ak-74 from AA. I have a few questions, first of all I live in illinois, can I legally install the k-var ak-105 short barrel modification? and if so is it a diy or does it have to be done by a gun smith. Also Is there anyway to get the ak cheaper since the k-var kit comes with the barrel and upper and lower hand guard?, I want the rifle to be a side folder btw. Thanks/

SBR, Sidefolder, Threaded Barrel, Bayonet Lugs, High Capacity Magazines unless all Pre-Ban, SBR etc.

Some of my family lives out there and this at least from what I knew a few years ago was true. However some have fixed stock Romanian AK's with 22mm FSB's that were exempt since no silencer was ever modeled to fit one.

You may do everything except the short barrel. A side folder is fine as long as you still use U.S. parts. Unless you are very good with a dremel, you would be best to have a smith do it, because it requires machining the receiver in a few places.

I think what the poster is saying is that you still need to have all of the 922 compliance parts. Your side folder does NOT need to be a USA made part. You will still need to have 6 USA made parts that count towards 922 compliance.

I see, thanks for the information guys. The short 105 barrel is illigal in all of illinois right, other then that I understand about the US made parts.
