Would stripping, sanding, reshaping and refinishing an SAR1 stock turn it into a U.S. domestically manufactured part?

I'm going to have a Saiga redone and I've got an extra stock from my SAR1 laying around after I put the Romanian Folder on it. Could I refinish/bed liner it and use it as a U.S. part?

After you're done refinishing it, just stamp "Made in USA" on it...problem solved!

As far as I'm concerned, you could redo it and try and change the shape a weeeee bit and stamp it "made in USA"...

If they can't prove it, who cares? The dimensions don't match up, nor does the finish.... what could they do?

My understanding is that if you take a "Pre Ban" magazine and alter it to fit another rifle - in a way that makes it no longer useable in the rifle in which it was originally intended for - you have made a new "Pose Ban" magazine and are a bad evil child killing criminal. If you alter it in a way that still allows you to use it in the original rifle youre a good honest citizen. I'm wondering if the same applies to stocks. If you can still use it on the original rifle you just refinished it. But if you can no longer use it in the original SAR1 you may have made a new American made stock. I'm not sure though.

I had a conversation with our local BATFE agent right here in colorado about the same subject.he stated"When enough manual effort{Gunsmithing,etc.} is applied to an imported part,and accordingly marked,it is considered a U.S. compliant part". He also stated this info was in the 94 import ban.

Heh, yes you do.....

If you could do that with a stock then what other parts could be done that way ??

Can I take everything off my receiver and blast the "original" finish off and then re-finish it.... maybe even stamp MADE IN US on the side of it and now have a "domestic" receiver ??

When put in that light your request is easier to judge....

What constitues "Made in America"?

We all know that many companies build products overseas and ship them to the U.S. to have the tags sewed in which state "Made in U.S.A."

What about the steel that in in our Ford/Chevy trucks that was smelted in China? Are these vehicles U.S. made?

hell even if the shape matches but you use a different finish, how can they prove that you arent a really good carpenter? sue for libel if they say you arent good enough to do it
