    Default Thumbhole Stock Parts Count

    Does an imported thumbhole stock count as two parts - pistol grip and stock?Thanks,
    Ken

    you are realy counting backwards. not that it counts as one or two parts. It is two less parts from the list that you have a limit of ten. I hope this is clear .

    Default re:

    just for clarification, you're saying it would be legal to take, say, a SAR-1, and remove the stock and pistol grip, and then install a foregin made thumbhole stock?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    that would depend on what U S parts were used allready. if it was a U S grip and a euro stock and you remove both of them and put on a euro thumbhole you have not added to the euro count even thow you took of one US part because now their is NO pistal grip at all to count. the easyest thing to do is look at the list and decide if you have ten parts from the list on your gun or not. most guys do the math backwards and it works out the same but for new guys I think it is clearer to count and see if their are ten parts from the list or not.
    with this in mind if your gun has a US stock and a US grip , then you take them both off and add a euro thumbhole stock , you just added one euro part and that could be trouble. I hope this helps.
