You would think that Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, and others would follow suit after Romania, Serbia, and Russia.

The major problem seems to be that all of these rifles need a minor redesign to accept only single stack mags, and all of the single stacks seem to be proprietary - not interchangeable between manufacturers.

It's too bad that we can't get the 1994-2004 ban configurations imported now.

Funny how with the ban lifted we can't get new standard model AKs into the country.

While I LOVE AKs that are actually MADE in Europe or China , We realistically won't have anything but "neutered '
rifles coming in without a Political Earthquake.

So rather than having to buy ever more costly "prebans" or doing expensive conversions on "sporters" , I
would MUCH rather see cheap partial parts kits and QUALITY Chrome-lined U.S. barrels.

The countries in Europe that produced AKs are now signatories to the Wassenaar Arrangement which is an arms control treaty which limits (among other things) the exportation of "military" rifles.
Semiauto rifles that accept standard AK magazines are "military" rifles. Single stack rifles are not.
There aren't any semiauto double stack rifles to be imported.

The others could go the Saiga route & put a longer mag catch, that way they will only take the double stack Saiga mags, thus they can "technically" call them sporting arms.
