This is my first post. Hope I'm setting it up ok.
My wife shocked me by buying me an AK47 (Romanian WASR 10) for Christmas. It may not be a high quality firearm, but it's a fun gun to shoot and a great price. I notice that the muzzle has a threaded muzzle cap which is tack welded in place. I can easily cut this weld with a dremel tool and restore the use of the threads, and replace the muzzle cap with a flash hider or compensator. Since this is a "post-post ban gun" (don't know what else to call guns sold after the ban expired), is it legal for me to do this modification? Is there some other reason besides the old ban that would have required this muzzle cap to be welded in place?
Another site suggested that the Romanians welded caps on these threaded barrels to comply with import laws. If so, was that just to comply with the now-expired ban? Thanks for any help.
