    Looking for a gunsmith in Seattle Tacoma area who could do a conversion folding stock pistol grip and new fore end from the sporting model with thumb hole stock on Norinco Mac 90

    Thanks

    What kind of folding stock are you wanting?

    That stock should just require minor fitting. If you want to drive up to North Kitsap I can help you do it, or do it for you. The Arsenal furniture will go right on.....a 5 min install.

    That would be great. I will need to order the parts first and then I can bring to you
    I saw a video in utube and it looked like the tang needed a little sanding and the inside of the stock a little sanding and it worked well
    I am thinking it will take a couple weeks to get everything
    What works best for you
    Thank you

    Just let me know via PM when you get all the parts and we can arrange a time for you to come out.

    I had to remove quite a lot of material to get an Arsenal handguard to fit my MAK 90.

    The receiver is thicker....so yes a small amount of fitment is required. These are AKs....not a lot of specific tolerances adhered to, so I always assume a small amount of fitment is required.

    I thought you had to do all the 922r stuff if you change the stock on a mak 90.

    I have all the parts for 922r compliance. I am waiting for the Ironwood furniture from Combloc. The stock pistol grip and handguard are custom made for the Mac 90 with angled receiver. The gun will be 922r compliant when converted
