Hell of a deal, WOW.
I paid around $400 for my Saiga 7.62x39 like maybe 2 years back.....
Awesome rifle for the price, considering the flawless functioning and condition they come in.( well except for the parts you have to replace for your rifle.)
$115 well spent.
Most parts swap right over with little to none modification.
My main concern here is the serial number law we have here? The sheriff I talked to said since there would be no serial number on the receiver and was purchased commercially at one point it may be precived as Alteration of identifying marks?
The laws here he sited could not find the 3rd i must have transposed it when writing it down
Alteration of identifying marks — Exceptions.
No person may change, alter, remove, or obliterate the name of the maker, model, manufacturer's number, or other mark of identification on any firearm. Possession of any firearm upon which any such mark shall have been changed, altered, removed, or obliterated, shall be prima facie evidence that the possessor has changed, altered, removed, or obliterated the same. This section shall not apply to replacement barrels in old firearms, which barrels are produced by current manufacturers and therefor do not have the markings on the barrels of the original manufacturers who are no longer in business. This section also shall not apply if the changes do not make the firearm illegal for the person to possess under state or federal law.
Obscuring the identity of a machine.
(1) A person is guilty of obscuring the identity of a machine if he knowingly:
(a) Obscures the manufacturer's serial number or any other distinguishing identification number or mark upon any vehicle, machine, engine, apparatus, appliance, or other device with intent to render it unidentifiable; or
(b) Possesses a vehicle, machine, engine, apparatus, appliance, or other device held for sale knowing that the serial number or other identification number or mark has been obscured.
(2) "Obscure" means to remove, deface, cover, alter, destroy, or otherwise render unidentifiable.
(3) Obscuring the identity of a machine is a gross misdemeanor.
In the US, the receiver is the serialed part.
In other countries, they number everything.
You bought parts, not a rifle.
If you're worried about it, sell it to me for $200
Demill the parts from the receiver. The receiver is the rifle. The rest are simply parts.
Turn in the receiver to that Sheriff for disposal
Take your "parts kit" and build away.
I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."
Better yet, wait till there's a gun turn in program. Give them your receiver scraps and demand your $100.
This is why they cut the receivers into thirds.
In the USA, "the receiver is the firearm". Cutting the receiver into thirds effectively destroys the firearm.
No more firearm - no more serial number defacement issues on the firearm.
