    hey guys,

    did a search and came up blank...

    can the polymer Arsenal Inc. AKMs take aftermarket wooden furniture? Saw nothing to convince me otherwise, but haven't heard anyone mention it/post about it either... I noticed they don't sell parts directly, but would a Global Trades Bulgarian set fit for instance?

    so long as you use stamped receiver furniture on a stamped receiver AK and milled furniture on a milled receiver AK, you can mix-n-match all you like.

    Crutches and Koochies, here we go with compliance again.
    Arsenal USA is building the rifles here in the good old USA and the rifles meet compliance requirements.

    I highly doubt you will meet the BATFE agent so anal in their approach to firearms that they will take a great issue with you using foreign made wooden fixed, non folding, non collapsing, furniture on your Arsenal USA rifle.

    They may get a little pissy if you mount up a Russian made Krinkov side folder and a GL-30 grenade launcher but I am betting nobody will seize your rifle and impound your dog for switching over to a fixed wooden stock.

    It is the law. Please do not denigrate it, whatever your personal opinion may be.

    I have ironwood furniture on my bulgy milled arsenal.

    I hate it (its too pretty and I worry about scratching or dinging it!).

    The yugo and tantal stuff are some examples of things that may not fit.

    922r is indeed the law. While I've never heard of a charge on this offense (and am doubtful 99% of LE would know or care about such sillines), it's still the law. Now, the law does say its illegal to import or assemble--if you're simply in possession of something that has been done by someone, that doesn't appear as being explicitly illegal. And internet legal advice is less than worthless. :)

    Yeah you are right.
    Do not ever,ever,ever, use a foreign made fixed rifle stock on your wonder rifle.
    The laws are well thought out by intelligent people and violating these laws will almost completely assure that anything resembling an assault rifle will be banned just as sure as electing any of the big name candidates running for the most powerful office in America.
    Even though I haven't seen a law that makes it illegal to install a foreign made fixed stock on an American made rifle which has some of the unfinished parts brought in from Bulgaria and final machined and final finished here making the rifle legal under the law to possess such things as a bayonet lug, short barrel, and selective fire where allowed.

    But they can send you to prison for a long long time.

    Please do not spread your FUD here. You can use whatever parts you like, so long as you have 10 foreign parts or less on your rifle. Below is the law.

    I am well aware of the law.
    I still am not seeing where adding a stock, handguard, and top rail will put you over the line on an Arsenal USA rifle???????

    Since Craig asked the initial question here is an answer.
    Call Arsenal USA and ask them:

    If its 100% made in the USA you can do whatever you want to it. The issue is if it was assembled from foreign parts. Then you need to keep 922 compliance in mind when you replace parts on it. At least, thats my understanding.

    I am so glad you were able to help the OP almost 2 YEARS after he asked his question. I'm sure he was waiting with bated breath on your input.


    Folks, please don't be thread necromancers.
