First magazine shot my out of the box MAK 90 thumbhole stock cracked . Most would run in the bathroom and sit on the toilet for two days with door locked & pout . I went straight to the shop grabbed some black walnut coping saw chisels and went to work . Full well knowing the slant Receiver would be problematic to fit any thing I could buy if I could find one . Most outfits making what I wanted basically said they would do it when they had time . At 66 years old I'm not waiting for a bus . The plate on the butt is aluminum sheet I profiled to be the starting point of profiling the stock . I will make walnut hand guards next winter Im way behind in the reloading room from this project . The reason I used walnut this is what I had in hand .

Yes a real mess I would think someone set up with a decent wood shop could turn some out . Just not any good alternatives for slant cut really happy to put the thumb hole away . And it did take forever !

Marking the butt stock to step down butt for butt plate , most of my tools are very primitive - coping saw , razor blades , can opener a few files . A crowd of on lookers !
