View Full Version : Milled MAK-90 Furniture

Does anyone know of any manufacturers of furniture for the milled receiver MAK-90 besides Ace, Ironwood Design or Choate Dragunov? I already have a milled MAK-91 with the Ace stock conversion and wanted to try something else. Also, I have heard Ironwood stocks need a good deal of sanding in order to fit.

I only have experience witn one Milled MAK-90, my own, but in addition to the round hole in the rear of the receiver, it is angled at the rear also. This would make it require a great deal of modification from the standard milled AK. I have another milled AK (a Hungarian parts kit from a milled gun, assembled on a Bulgarian receiver) so I have elected to keep the gun NIB. I have a spare MAK-90 stock (from a square-cut receiver, unfortunately) which, Real Soon Now, I will modify to fit the angled receiver. As I plan to keep the rifle unfired until I wear out all my other guns, I haven't been pressing for completing the modification, especially since I have serious problems shooting now.
You apparently aren't concerned what kind of buttstock you put on it, as long as it isn't a thumbhole. I would give serious consideration to making a tube stock, similar to a Valmet. Cut a tube that would into the hole and an angled piece that would square off the rear. Before cutting the angle I would drill a hole in the piece and threading it for the proper NPT to allow a piece of black iron pipe to be threaded into it. Then build a buttplate that would screw onto the other end. It would certainly be a different if not unique firearm.
I have a milled MAC90 with the Choate stock on it. If the ban expires in September, I'm gonna try to find someone who will put a Galil folder on it.
