AWB: Does this mean folding stocks allowed?

I know that 922(r) governs "assembly" in the USA of
semi-auto rifles and shotguns out of imported parts but now that the ban is void, does this mean we can once again add folding stocks to our SKS rifles? Not that I actually WANT one but I'll add one to my rifle just because I can so if they reinstate a new AWB in the future (and they are currently working on one to put before Bush now) I would be grandfathered in.

I currently have the original bayonet installed and a 20 round magazine. I want to add any mods that I can before the Democrats ruin it for me. :)

Nope. Cannot add folding stocks to any imported firearm. You can replace enough imported parts with US made parts in your imported firearm to have it reclassified as domestic manufactured, at which time you can add a folding stock.

If the SKS has the required number of parts (10 or less?) to not count as foreign, you can add one now.

See this thread, Badger Arms explained it simply and well:

How in the heck did I miss that thread?

Thanks for the heads-up. Looks like I'll be buying some more parts just to keep it legal before adding the stock. I wasn't sure if the US parts issue went away with the AWB or not. Sounds like not.

"You can replace enough imported parts with US made parts in your imported firearm to have it reclassified as domestic manufactured, at which time you can add a folding stock."

Does this also include the fact that mine has the original bayonet and lug attached and has been updated with a 20+ capacity magazine? This legal crap is getting hard to follow.
