Do please forgive my ignorance on this, since I live in Kalifornia and most of the guns this applies to are banned anyways. Okay, the import ban says that only 10 parts (from a long list of particular parts) may be foreign made on particular firearms (those designated "non-sporting").
Does this apply if the gun is not going to be in original configuration? If not, then what's the point of all those thumbhole stocks I see for AK variants? I would understand if it was related to the features-based ban, but I thought I heard someone mention it in regards to the import ban sometime back...
If you want to put a different style thumbhole stock onto one of these rifles it doesn't need to have the US made parts count to do so.
