    Hi everyone, I was at a private auction and there was a set of surplus AK Furniture. (Forend and Stock) Well I ended up buying it. The problem is I do not know the country of origin on these pieces, I refinished them so any sort of identification marks are long gone and I thouroughly checked before hand as well. I asked the seller and he did not know were they were made either. I want to put this furniture set on an Arsenal AK. Do you think this could be a problem if they were not U.S. made? I dont see how anyone could figure out there origin though anyway since the refinishing and no markings. What do you recommend I do? What would happen if they were not U.S. made?

    Yes.

    Arsenal has a history of using US furniture in their products.

    If the government says "They're foreign", and you don't have any way to prove them wrong, where will you be?

    BATF doesn't have to prove anything! You have to prove they are US.

    ",where would you be?" prison for about 5 years!

    IF you really want to do it, get a Tapco FCG and a US stock set (dph and Kvar) about $120.

    Why would he get a Tapco FCG? Arsenals are shipped with US-made FCGs.

    If this is still America, they have to prove them "foreign".

    I think we are still waiting for the first case of 922R violation prosecution against an individual.

    My opinion and my opinion only.
    BATFE appears more concerned with folding and collapsing type stock assemblies that can make the firearm more concealable than they are about where a fixed stock was produced.

    I am unaware of any case where a prosecution for having foreign made fixed stock assembly on a weapon has ever taken place.

    Well if you have the six US made parts required for 922r compliance then the furniture is moot. So take a look at the FCG, piston, pistol grip and slant brake which should add up to 6.

    If it is an Arsenal, Inc., which is a US company, possibly; if it is an Arsenal Co., which is a Bulgarian firm, you better check it. The logos for both companies are the same so that doesn't help. If it had a "thumb hole" stock originally, I would look for sure.

    Arsenal of Bulgaria (the "Bulgarian firm") owns Arsenal, Inc.

    Arsenal, Inc is the sole US distributor for Arsenal of Bulgaria.

    If you find an Arsenal of Bulgaria gun in the USA, it's been imported and 922r-ized by Arsenal, Inc (or it's probably in the country illegally).

    Maybe because they're the same company?

    The only way they would ever know is if you told people about it like puting a thread about it up on the internet for the world to see.
