    You can buy a varient of the chinese SKS made to accept ak-47 magazines, and you can legally use 30 rounders. Might be around $250.

    You can add a certain number of US made parts to your SKS and legally use 30 rounders (don't know the exact number of parts needed).

    Not supposed to add a 30 rounder to a original config. SKS, as you would be creating a rifle unsuitable for importation, which is illegal.:rolleyes:

    Is it illegal? Yes and no

    If you do anything besides changing the sights on a Yugo SKS, you need to switch it over to have at least 10 American made parts. I'm sure someone has a link to an article giving a list.

    Actually you can do some things to a yugo 59/66 rifle without doing the 10 parts change out. If you get rid of the bayonet and the grenade launcher you can change things like add a scope and a synthetic stock (not folding). The rifle will no longer be C&R but it would be still importable as a sporting rifle. Now if you want go with a 30 round mag and say a folding stock with a pistol grip then you have to change out enough parts for the rifle to be considered USA made since the rifle wouldn't be importable as a sporting rifle.

    Last I read it's ten or less imported parts and it's certain kinds of parts at that.

    Considering that replacing parts can be expensive why not just get an AK?

    Having a Yugo, I would say leave it the way it is, and if you need a 30 round mag, get a WASR 10 for about $250 or so. You spend more than that trying to convert the Yugo t0 922 compliance - not worth it.
