There's as many people in Federal prison for this heinous crime (removing a trunnion and reinstalling it) as there are for the wretched 922r violators and that would be zero!!
funny, My builder removed mine from my chinese when he did the conversion to euro style and he's still walking the street.
I don't believe there's a problem removing it for repairs if you put it back...
If you didn't get caught, you didn't get caught (but your builder is now implicated - thanks).
Sorta like speeding down the empty highway at night - if nobody sees you, you're not getting a ticket - but it's still illegal.
really? Where does it say that....
I found pictures of a bullet ramp for sale and made a copy from heavy wall 3/4 stainless steel pipe.Drilled,taped,and super glued in a x-39 Saiga.
SOON-We already lost the war. You are the resistance.
nobody said anything about that, don't change the subject.
show me where it says you cannot remove a serial #'d trunnion from a receiver to perfrom repairs or modifications and then reinstall it.
nobody said anything about permanent separation of the two..
In the USA the receiver is the firearm, and foreign AKs are allowed into the country w/o a serialized receiver because the serial number is riveted to the receiver (on the barrel trunnion).
If you remove the barrel trunnion from an intact receiver, you are defacing or destroying the serial number assigned to that receiver.
We've gone over this several times before here.
Once again I feel you are twisting what the law says...
I'm just asking for you to show me specifically instead of trying to scare someone..
