    Im new to ak's, although i want to try something new. Ive put together many ar-15's and moving to ak's. I bought a polish lower parts kit and a receiver and about to buy a barrel. Now I'm figuring out theres some 922r bullshit? Haha obviously theres a law on this too. I want a classic ak-47, and i have all the parts? Its semi-automatic obviously? How big of a deal is this? I don't want to break the law but some of these gun laws are killing me.

    The twin laws, both the one called 922(r) and Title 27 CFR 478.39 state you cannot make a semi-automatic long gun using more than 10 imported parts.

    The counted parts are as quoted from 478.39 and 922(r):
    (c) For purposes of this section, the term imported parts are:
    (1) Frames, receivers, receiver castings, forgings or stampings
    (2) Barrels
    (3) Barrel extensions
    (4) Mounting blocks (trunions)
    (5) Muzzle attachments
    (6) Bolts
    (7) Bolt carriers
    (8) Operating rods
    (9) Gas pistons
    (10) Trigger housings
    (11) Triggers
    (12) Hammers
    (13) Sears
    (14) Disconnectors
    (15) Buttstocks
    (16) Pistol grips
    (17) Forearms, handguards
    (18) Magazine bodies
    (19) Followers
    (20) Floorplates

    Hard to believe that if you use 10 imported parts you have an angelic rifle incapable of harming a flea, but if you use 11 imported parts, the firearm will become an evil baby killing device and the otherwise honest owner will become an evil maniac.

    They don't make laws much stupider, and worse, they had to do it twice!

    By the way, the AK (milled receiver) has 15 countable parts, AKM (stamped) has 16.

    I know right, these laws are retarded. Thanks for the answer though.

    Oh wow even the magazine? What the hell does that have to do with anything, not that any of the other parts do but wow.

    Best thing to do is use a US fcg, which is 3 parts. If you're building, you'll be using a US receiver which is another and then you need 2 more. The muzzle device and pistol grip are easy to do and don't alter the appearance. The piston is a good option for keeping the appearance as well, but is more work. Floorplates for mags and followers are good options as well.
