ok, ok. im dumb. I am looking for the legit info on assault weapons ban. i have a norinco sks, serial number 92 04XXX. I need to know if this is a pre or post ban gun. is it legal that i put a folding stock and compensator on it 3 days after i bought it in 1992. i have been told that this lil gun is pre by some people, and post by some others. whats the truth? please help.

Flash Hider, or a threaded barrel that will accept one
TWO of the above items and the ability to take detatchable magazines throws it in the assault weapons classification (not three). A rifle cannot have over one of the five items noted above. It would have to have been configured as an assault weapon prior to the 1994 ban to be legal.
SMILE...MAKE EM WONDER WHAT YOUR UP TO
If the receiver was manufactured before Sept. 13th, 1994, you can put whatever you want to it, just as long as the barrel is 16" or longer, and the overall length of it, with any folding stock folded or collapsed, is greater than 26 1/2" long. If it has an unregistered silencer on it, or has parts contained in it or modified to fire fully automatic, it is also illegal, but that is covered elsewhere in the law.
If you've owned that thing since before the ban, it can have a bayonet/lug, a threaded barrel, a flash suppressor, a pistol grip, a folding stock, and a grenade launcher on it and be modified to accept detachable magazines, and no foul. (The grenade launcher is a Class III item, and it must be registered appropriately, but even if it is registered, it could not be attached to a post-ban weapon legally)
