    If I put a Thumbhole Stock on my AK-47 does that eliminate one of the three evils (Pistol Grip) and allow me to add another evil in it's place (Flash Suppressor or Brake)?

    No sir it does not.

    ATF has ruled that a thumbhole stock is a version of a seperate pistol grip, and so treats those stocks the same as the pistol grips. That's why you dont see those anymore on new guns.

    If the ATF treats a thumbhole stock and a pistol grip stock the same, then why all the worring about converting over to us made parts to install a pistol grip? I guess I missed something. Why can't they just say what the law is. Black and white instead of all the "vauge and open to intepertation" crap?
