its a relatively simple 3 step process:

1. move out of MD

2. build your AK

3. enjoy!

As far as I know it's legal. I think there is a week waiting period if you buy the receiver pre-made plus extra fees (assault rifles). Also 20 rd magazines only. Just follow the ATF's guidelines.

I could have swore he just bought an SKS sunday....looks like he's got the itch now.

the 20 rounders are easy enough to find. I think MD requires a training course for posession of "assault weapons". Maybe it's just pistols, but i can easily accomodate for the cost of the NRA materials.

yup, he just did but he now really wants an AK

i live in Maryland and you should not have any more problem here than VA or most other states as far as putting an 'ak' parts gun together, with the final product that looks like an 'ak-47' but semi-auto and has a lot of non-original parts.

Bingo! that is correct. If you want 30 round magazines just go to a VA or PA gunshow and buy them legally. They are legal to own, you just can't BUY (or receive them) here in MD.

The 'course' <Cough> BullSHIT Brady Propaganda video<Cough> Is only needed if you're purchasing/transferring a controlled weapon (any handgun or any semi-auto rifle that is on 'the list' - completed receivers are included).

You can avoid this by showing your DD-214 if you're a vet or your ID card if you're an LEO or current .MIL (includes National Guard).

If you buy an 80% receiver you don't need to watch the video.

News to me.
MD residents can posses any mags, with any capacity.
Mags over 20 rounds cannot be bought and sold in MD though.
So if you want to get 30 rounders, you have to go to PA or VA.

That'll be easy enough for him, he goes to school in PA. Keeps his stuff off campus in my safe. Should be easy for him to find his way home with a bunch of 30 rounders.
