    I wouldn't change anything. I am curious to see how that folder is attached to the rear of the receiver.

    Well I'm sure that stock is a real pain and the reason I'm not a fan of that type and especially the under folder.

    Someone must have taken the rear apart and added that stock. If that is the case, a stock rear trunion could be restored and a regular buttstock put in place.

    kvar has some nice US made stocksets...I prefer the plum color commie length.

    there are many options, check out midwest industries... http://www.midwestindustriesinc.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_ID=1119

    as long as your Mak90 is a straight cut receiver most everything you buy 'should' fit, if I recall (and I could be wrong) the Mak90 is a Chinese clone of the Russian AKM rifle


    most of all make certain your rifle is Title 18 USC § 922(r) compliant
    http://gunwiki.net/Gunwiki/BuildAkVerifyCompliance
    it doesn’t look like yours is... but perhaps Norinco made some either before or after the AWB?

    I really like the Hogue AK grip. Just an awesome feel, perfect palmswell. Wish their AR grip felt as good.

    I found my bookmark... personally I would go with some of the products from Ultimak: http://ultimak.com/BuyAK.htm
    Made in the USA so they are 922r compliant. I like the traditional look of the AK with wood furniture but 922r wood AK furniture is expensive.

    I personally like the Ultimak gas tube rail because it sits the lowest offering best chance for an optic like a red dot to co-witness the iron sights. http://ultimak.com/m2-b.htm

    If you can wait a bit, the Magpul AK furniture will be released.

    Brendan, I think that switching around new stock parts can get very messy! I suggest that you send the MAK To me and start anew with an eastern bloc AK! Glad to help. SRG;)

    I vote for a different stock as a minimum. Wire folders are not my thing.
