You don't see thumbhole stocks like the top one too often that show the straight/square cut so in order to identify what type of receiver cut you have you will generally have to remover the thumbhole stock as most Norinco thumbhole stocks give the illusion of a slant cut receiver like the following when in reality there could be a straight/square cut underneath
Good pics. The very top one is the type of thumbhole commonly found on Norinco NHM-90s. The bottom one is the only type I've personally encountered on a MAK-90 although I'm sure there are exceptions. The way these wrap around the rear of the receiver makes it impossible to tell for sure with the stock in place. It might be possible to see the angle cut with the top cover of and the recoil spring out but I can't say for sure since I've never inspected one. But if buying online based on a picture I would request the seller to send pictures with the thumbhole removed.
All of the milled MAK-90s had the angle cut done on thier recievers and look similar to the cut stamped receivers in this area except the cut begins a little lower down on the milled.
WIth the thumbhole off there is no mistaking the two. The uncut reciever's lower rear is square and on the cut version it is not.
Thanks for clearing things up Imaposer2
