Why cant a Russian sks use a +10 round detachable
Like the mini 14 or Saiga if all the evil features are taken off?

The Russian SKS can't even use a 1 round detachable :)

Not like those are made... but still!

No has to be 10 rounder. I just thought it was funny because it does not have a pistol grip, flash hider, ect. I guess since it was specifically named it is a no go

Because Democratic-Socialist politicians feared and demonized the SKS but couldn't fully include it in their specious AWB. So they found a 'loophole' to otherwise hinder their ownership and passed the above-reference addition to the law. As well as teh craptacular 'US made parts' restriction.

Or, a +10 round fixed. It would be up to the owner.
