Does any one of you guys know if a bubbad c@R rifle like a yugo sks that has had its bayonet lug removed reagain status as C@R if it the lug has been welded back on and the area refinished to bring it back to orginal configuration. Or is it once bubbad alaways bubbad any help or atf tech branch letters would be appreciated thanks guys.

If they are non perenemt mods, its still a C&R. With the bayonet removed and its lug ground off, it would still be a C&R......look at the California mods on the same rifle.......

I was under the impression a C&R only stays a C&R if it is in factory configuration. If a rifle is damaged, broken, had parts removed, etc and is 'rearsenaled' into factory configuration, then it is back to C&R status. I'm not sure if that only applies to C&Rs that are not C&Rs by age, because it would see that even if you modified a rifle, then the new configuration would still be on a receiver that is 50 years old and would still be a C&R.

As for the California mod, I believe that falls into adding to the configuration, like putting a scope on it. If the rifle was modified in any way, which since it was bubbaized I am assuming it is, it's kind of hard to take off the added feature, especially if that added feature is a shortened barrel, removal of wood, etc.

Of course I don't know the laws very well either, so I could be wrong.

The grenade launcher and sight must be removed for Ca. sales and replaced with a muzzle brake or by being cut off to make inoperable. An M44 with no bayonet is still a C&R. Century sells 'u fixems' to C&R holders, missing parts-modified parts.......there is grey area, but in this case (above) its still a C&R.

And no, there are mods you can do that will viod the C&R status, even if the receiver is unmodified.

Once the receiver is 50 years old, it is always a C&R, regardless of changes.

Any C&R less than 50 enters a twilight zone. I have seen the contention that the only modification that the ATF recognizes on a C&R is a modification to the receiver. You can do anything you want to the rest of the firearm, but the receiver must be its original configuration.

This may be incorrect, but it does seem consistent with the "only the receiver is a firearm" dictum.

it will remain C&R if it is 50 yrs or older.
