    Nope, 80% or under means it is just metal, not considered a firearm.

    If you're going to sell "80%" anything, best to get a letter from the BATF technical division stating that it is NOT considered a firearm, before selling.
    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."

    And even that is no guarantee they won't change their mind later and reclassify it as a firearm. BTW, "80%" is just a term used in ad copy, ATF has no "percentage" criteria. You send them a sample of the product and ask "is this a firearm, or not?" Depending on their answer you can sell it as a "non-gun" part or reduce the completeness a bit and re-submit.

    Send in an EXACT sample. Let them hang on to it for 2 years then after numerous phone conversations they can still say, "its not a firearm" but they just never seem to be able to put it in writing.

    I have had some plates reviewed and written approved come back in 11 months and some 2-3 years pending, the only difference is one small cut for the BHO lever on a yugo.

    Yugo AKs have bolt hold opens? I knew about the mags, but I guess I haven't looked at too many of them...

    The "M64" - the first model AK issued by the former Yugoslavia - had a receiver-based bolt hold open feature depending on modified AK47 mags. "M64" modified mags could fit in other AK series but not vice-versa. The feature allowed the mag to be dropped while maintaining the bolt hold back and when a loaded mag was inserted, a simple pull back on the charging handle and you were ready to fire.

    For whatever reason, when what we call the M70 was produced the feature was dropped.

    Cooool. I'm assuming the hold open mechanism was a lot like the one on a PSL.
