So it doesn't matter if the rifle functions exactly the same, as long as a majority of the parts aren't from Russia?
That's the way it is.
On my Saiga, I installed a USA made forearm, and can now use high cap mags, as long as the mags are made in the USA. If I used Russian mags, I'd have to change out 3 other parts. Mags count as 3 parts, body, follower and floor plate. Go figure
