    According to the ATF, the part has to change function, not just appearance.

    Now if your kit comes with wood blocks from a Romanian or Polish tree and you make pistol grips and buttstocks out of those, you're good to go.

    nalioth is spot on here guys..........if you make an apple out of a box of oranges then you manufactured the apple. If you polish the box of oranges then that is all you did and they are STILL Oranges....well, it made sense when I was typing it...lol

    When 922r went into effect the people who manufactured compliance parts used a small design change to prove US production such as the ope. rod for the FAL. The European ope. rod had either two or three grooves around the piston (right now I do not remember which). The US produced ope. rod had the opposite number.

    A similar situation occurred with the banning of flash hiders. Any design for a muzzle brake was acceptable with the exception of one that copied an existing flash suppressor.
