As mentioned earlier, the early Daewoo rifles were imported before the ban on imported "non-sporting" rifles. This was a ban enacted at a federal level in the spring of 1989 and was a permanent ban on the importation of rifles that met "assault weapon" criteria. Worth noting, magazine capacity was not taken into account at this time, so this is why we saw the continued importation of AKs, FALs, etc., albeit in neutered configuration. This is because the 1989 ban was focused on features of the rifle itself such as if it had a pistol grip, bayonet lug, folding stock, flash hider, etc. This ban is what lead to the creation of the Daewoo DR200 and the "death" of the K1A1 and K2 in the United States. In 1998 (four years after the Federal Assault Weapons Ban was put into place) a ban on imported rifles capable of using magazines greater than ten rounds in capacity became law. This caused the DR200 imports -- and Daewoo rifle imports altogether -- to become history in the United States. Linked above are the two Daewoo rifles that were imported before the 1989 ban: the K1A1 Carbine and the K2 Rifle.
