Recent Smoke Pole Project.

Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

These MAY actually be legal there - as they can't have more than a factory ten round magazine
Prolly not...

Currently in California, a rifle with a detachable magazine is considered an "Assault rifle" and as such is illegal to own. If a rifle has a magazine release button (that can be operated with the finger), it's illegal. If it is less than 30" long it is illegal. If it has a "thumb hole" is considered an assault rifle.

To remove the 'assault rifle' classification weapons must be fitted with a "bullet button" making it necessary to use a "tool" to release the magazine. The "bullet button" is simply (not simple at all) a device that recesses the magazine release button enough that the tip of the finger cannot release the magazine. The tip of a bullet is long enough to reach into the recess and is legally acknowledged as a "tool".

Of course the "bullet button", while now legal, totally defeats the intent of the legislation (making it impossible for an active shooter to quickly change magazines (thereby protecting JQ Public from deranged shooters)), so California legislators are ardently attempting to create legislation that makes it necessary to physically remove screws, etc. to change a magazine.

But I do believe that "bullet button" conversion kits are available for AKs.

I'm personally beginning to wonder if becoming proficient with a muzzle loading weapon might be the way to go...

Hi Lew,
Wondering if an SKS 59/66 would pass in Ca. they come with a fixed magazine smaller than 10 rounds, they are long enough, & have a traditional stock. they should be legal (without the spike bayonet). they are very good rifles. Then there is the old standby Winchester lever action - I sold mine to buy my first AK 20 years ago. mine winchester was a 30-30 carbine & painful to shoot. I like 7.62X39 much better - which is also used in SKS & Mosin Nagant bolt actions, & AK.

To get my Indiana carry license I needed to do a Police background check and fingerprints. There was a $50 fee for processing and $75 for the lifetime license. I'm certainly not against the background checks and fees so long as its going to a good cause within the state government. Now, Illinois you know that's going into the general funds and getting exploited elsewhere.

I saw muzzle loading mentioned, my Remington clone cap and ball pistol sure is fun at the range.

Some of my family have asked if Urals come with social lives, I am thinking they do, we have met the nicest people with our Ural.

Lots of people enjoy them, & there is a huge following at the range I use. They remind me (because of the fiddling) of PIPE SMOKING - which I eventually gave up because I'M TOO IMPATIENT - & now trying to keep totally away from TOXIC SMOKE, & LEAD particles.
The B.P. Guys all have some nice gear, & are very friendly, & invited me to share their firing line - But the constant BIG SMOKE - ran me off.

todays news in the famous "army free" Costa Rica:
Psycologic test for fire arm control 4-5 hours at a nuts doc... cost about 68.000Colones= 120$.
"Good doctor's record" for such a brain test": 28 persons a day!
That souds like a good monthly pay check, doesn't it?
To me all these regulation specialist "Doctors" (same type as for driving licence) smell for money below the table to somebody in the government.
(todays other news is that after 6 years of law suits the director of driver's license office (since 25 years) got finally suspended. First claim for to fire him was 2003. = that is fast justice....)

It smokes at all corners in this country... How in yours?

Jaybird, is that a double - action instrument? Dual wielding.
Yup, rabbits on the left, squirrels on the right. :P

I built a Yugo AKM kit on a USA made receiver with a USA made 23" barrel to look like a Iraqi DMR that was in use there when we invaded. Has a USA made teakwood stock set too. Can still be seen on the Ironwood web site. The Tabuk variant there is my build. I still have it in the safe. Shots 2" groups at 100 yards with cheap ammo. They take all mags, but are semi only of course.

The photo they used for the regular Yugo is mine too. Built it with a new barrel from before the barrel ban in 06.
yeah, I might be addicted to brake fluid. But I can stop any time I want.
