First off I would like to say Hello to everyone. I am new here.
I just got a AK47 MAK90 with a milled reciver.
I would like to change the stock on it I do not like the thumb hole stock at all.
Is it within the law to put a pistol grip and fixed stock on the MAK90?
I would also like to know what stock would fit my gun? I want something black, light weight.
Thank you, Taz
I'm not sure what black stocks would fit. Can someone help? I also have a Milled MAK-90 and need a black polymer stock set for it.
Welcome to the boards. I do not know the specifics of your state/local laws, but it is 100% legal (according to federal law) to convert the MAK-90 over to a "standard" configuration. Check out the Build it Yourself section for tons of great info, as well as good suppliers for stocks, etc. With a milled receiver, I believe you will need 4 or a maximum of 5 US parts (if the muzzle is threaded) in order to make it legal (you can confirm this in the same section). I think K-Var corporation has milled stock sets, both US and foreign. I would recommend changing the Fire Control Group (FCG) as it counts as 3 of your 5 parts, and is simple to do. Anyway, welcome, and cruise around the BIY section for lots of help.
ETA: Boma, and Tazman--I just took a look over on K-vars website, and they have at least a couple different sets of US made black polymer furniture (in a couple different LOPs), which counts as 3 pieces for about $90-110 or so. Not the cheapest, but good quality and US marked. Check out the EE for other individual pieces at cheaper prices. All you really have to worry about is if it was designed for a milled receiver or not. It may take some final fitting to be just right on your rifles, but they should work. Good luck, and let us see pics of milled guns!!
Check Here for a discussion on the MAK-90.
Below is a picture of my MAK-90 (the black one) along with my cousin's milled MAK-90(well if he ever pays me):
To get my parts count down, I replaced the following with US parts: upper & lower handguards (1 part), the pistol grip (1 part), the butt stock (1 part), and the fire control group (3 parts). Technically this got my imported parts count below 10 and my MAK-90 is now a 922(r) compliant rifle.
ETA: Section 922(r):
19. ASSEMBLY OF NONSPORTING SEMIAUTOMATIC RIFLES AND
SHOTGUNS FROM IMPORTED PARTS
Section 922(r), Title 18, U.S.C., makes it unlawful for any person to
assemble from imported parts any semiautomatic rifle or any shotgun which is
identical to any rifle or shotgun prohibited from importation under section
925(d)(3) of the GCA. Regulations implementing the law in 27 C.F.R. 178.39
provide that a violation of section 922(r) will result if a semiautomatic
rifle or shotgun is assembled with more than 10 of the following imported
(1) Frames, receivers, receiver castings, forgings, or stampings
(3) Barrel extensions
(4) Mounting blocks (trunnions)
(5) Muzzle attachments
(7) Bolt carriers
(8) Operating rods
(9) Gas pistons
(10) Trigger housings
(16) Pistol grips
(17) Forearms, handguards
(18) Magazine bodies
Section 922(r) does not prohibit the importation, sale, or possession of
parts which may be used to assemble a semiautomatic rifle or shotgun in
violation of the statute. However, 18 U.S.C. § 2 provides that a person who
aids or abets another person in the commission of an offense is also
responsible for the offense. Therefore, a person who sells parts knowing that
the purchaser intends to use the parts in assembling a firearm in violation of
section 922(r) would also be responsible for the offense.
It should be noted that a violation of section 922(r) may result even if
the assembled rifle or shotgun does not meet the definition of "semiautomatic
assault weapon" in the GCA. For example, a person who assembled an SKS rifle
with a folding stock and fixed magazine would violate section 922(r), since
the SKS would have more than 10 of the imported parts specified in the
regulation. However, the SKS rifle with a fixed magazine would still not be
regulated as a "semiautomatic assault weapon."
Thanks a lot! I will have some pictures to post as soon as I get everything bought and put together.
