What is the best way to make a yugo 59/66a1 922r compliant and where does one go to acquire all the parts to do so? Thank you.

It's compliant the way it was imported. Are you trying to bubba it into something it was never intended to be?

First, you should read and understand 922(r). You will notice that it only applies to long guns which are not able to be imported. You will also notice that there is no law against possessing firearms which are not compliant. The only thing that is illegal is assembling a firearm which is not compliant. So, if you are not adding any features which are federally prohibited from importing, you're fine.

Are you putting a Crapco stock on it with a pistol grip or folding stock? If so, yea, you would have to play the parts count game. If it's just a montecarl style stock, you're fine.

not really sure yet but was thinking bout the folding stock because i want to keep the bayonet on it and no other stock allows me to do so.

But a Yugo M59/66 with a monte carlo stock would be unimportable.

How so? It would not be an AW under the Clinton importation ban.

If you mean the grenade launcher attachment that the Yugo model 59 lacks, but the 59/66 has, then it will need to be unpinned and replaced with something else.

Other than that one item, it's good to go.

Can't you have the pistol grip stock if you stick with the undetachable mag?

Yes but, the OP is talking about Federal law and 922(r). So, in order for one to install a pg on a DOS, one can't have more than 10 imported parts.

Which do not have to be marked, and furthermore 922r says nothing about possession.

years ago there was a article in an nra mag about making a russian sks a sporter legally


it required attaching a thumbhole or monte carlo stock grinding off the bayonet lug from the rear sight making sure there was no night sights attached or a bipod(yes those are non sporting features)

but once it was sporterized then you could use a detachable magazine (not in ca though) but since a yugo is not an sks maybe its ok here

what i worry is that maybe that gas cut off option is a non-sporting feature

we are not dealing with assault weapon features here we are dealing with arbitrary non sporting features which seem to be added at whim

It has nothing to do with AWs or any Clinton ban. :confused:

It has to do with the 1968 ban on importing military surplus firearms, and George H. W. Bush's 922(r) ban on assembling unimportable semi-auto rifles from imported parts.
