Pic__1A1.jpg here is my sks ive been working on trying to install muzzle break but not sure of the correct way to do so. It is the pin on type im wondering if I should knock the sight pin out to mount it through there, or mout from underneath. Ive seen it done both ways but rather have someone elses input before i do anything. If so whats the best way to knock out the pin and is common to have to do a little fileing on the muzzle break to make it fit? Here is a pic of the break> Pic__71.jpg

An SKS does not even need a muzzle break, it is only chambered in 7.62x39. Hopefully that muzzle break will not cause excessive wear under the front sight base. If it does there's a possibility of stripping the thread that holds the front sight in. Also, it looks like you are in violation of 922(r) from here. I certainly hope you have some U.S. Made parts in that thing or you are in violation of federal law.

So, just curious, what exactly is the rationale behind requiring American made parts in weapons? Is it just to ensure American arms companies don't go out of business? That seems a bit unlikely to me...

It's left over from the Clinton era. The government back then decided that it was a 'bad' thing to import certain weapons. A lot of rifles (like certain chinese variations) were stopped from being imported simply because they were foreign. The same kind of law was carried over for when someone modified a legally-imported rifle and decided to change a few parts out. On an SKS, the ATF decided that there are 14 "parts" that they count. When you switch one and the ATF says it's a counted part (there are certain exceptions to this) you can only have 10 imported parts in it. So typically on a Russian, Albanian, Romanian, or Chinese SKS, you need to switch four parts out. The stock counts as two (stock and handguard) and you can buy U.S. Made magazines, and gas pistons. On a Yugoslavian 59/66 SKS (If I recall correctly) typically you need to remove 6-8 parts, so an additional thing needs to be replaced. Wulf replaced the standard stock with one that features a pistol grip and is folding. Therefore he needs to replace a minimum of two more counted parts and replace them with those made in the USA. From the looks of it you have an illegal setup dude.

Heh, I find it funny that it was under a Democratic president that something which can only be construed as xenophobic legislation was passed...

Im in no violation my state guns laws are far diffrent from others, the mussle break works great on it exspells the gas perfectly around the prjectile makeing it alot more accurate. But how you say mussle breaks dont help on 7.62x39 when in fact they are on most AKs and SKS for muzzle climb and to correctly move the gases also the high cap mag ban was lifted so no law broke there beside its all US machined parts (except Mbreak) a little fileing and finishing the rifle wich took a while, but in the end it was worth it and im not even realy done with it i got a few more things to add on it before its completed it belive the law your talking about only applys to yugos and russian sks's besides my cop buddy said its alright but gun laws arnt harsh were I live. Gun laws change in every state so be carefull also the only chinese part is the mussle break and every thing else besides gun itself is american I still have orig thumbhole stock but no need to change because its not illegall in my state. Im just a gunsmith/collector even collect real samurai swords im not looking to shoot a place up one of my favorite things is to build/mod weapons and go target practiceing.
