    Would it be legal after the AWB expiration to mount a folding stock on a Romanian WASR-10 AK clone?

    I don't plan on doing any other alterations to the gun other than replacing the crappy Century FCG with a Red Star Arms or other quality US made FCG.

    This would leave the US parts count the same as it was when I first purchased the gun.

    If it was a single stack WASR-10 I'll would say no. But I don't about the ones that are double stack and have US parts.

    You can only have a certain # of non-US parts in the gun because of import laws. Someone will come along with the exact number. Been awhile since my conversion. Anyway, as long as you have the correct # of US & foreign parts you can do whatever you want to it after 9/14. Keep in mind that any folding stock you get will probably count as a foreign part.

    The rifle is a Century double stack mag conversion with a US made FCG, gas piston, and pistol grip.
    The existing wooden shoulder stock is Romanian, so I'd be swapping out one foreign part for another.

    The pistol grip is the US-made stock part that goes towards the total number of parts necessary to make the rifle legal and I plan on leaving the pistol grip alone.

    The stock I'm looking at is a Romanian surplus sidefolder.

    The parts count on the rifle should remain the same as I'm wanting to swap out a Romanian wooden stock for a Romanian sidefolder.

    In that case it would most definitely be legal.

    Cool, thanks. I figured someone had to make 'em but I hadn't really looked.

    I swear, the import/domestic parts mix-and-match rules are so mindbogglingly stupid it's hard for me to believe they exist. Just because your wooden stock was cut from a Romanian tree instead of an American one, you're an evil criminal in the eyes of the law.

    And just think, we know these laws are stupid because we know firearms. Imagine all the inane laws we don't know about! Weeeee!
