Are the Chinese Norinco Mac 90's any better/worse than the Romanian SAR's and can the stocks be replaced with traditional AK 47 stocks?

I think they are better quality....

For the second question....NO!!! they are not compatible with "normal" AK stocks!!!(The receivers are dramatically cut) And for that reason,are not real popular!

Thanks Quad, you saved me from a mistake. I ended up buying a WASR 10 and I love it. Every bit as accurate as my mini 14 was out the the box, probably better. Never missed a shot. Cycled great. Ammo cheap too. It's a good one to start out with. Much as I like it I'm sure I'll eventually get an upgrade. Thanks again.

The Finnish Navy Seals and the Military Defense Council of Finland, both selected Norinco =D>
http://www.ak-47.us/MAK-90.htm

Norinco type 56 stamped AK-47's (MAK-90's) are better than Russian & Romanian AKM rifles like the SAR-1,

The Navy Seals and the Military Defense Council of Finland, both selected Norinco of China to supply Chinese type 56 AK-47 rifles, which are virtually identical (except for select-fire components) to the Norinco MAK-90, & without the MAK-90's thumbhole stock).

THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING, as the GALIL AK's, F.E.G.'s from Hungary, Arsenal of Bulgaria, and Russian AK's were all tested against the Chinese Norinco, and the Norinco came out on top as the most rugged, and best value, despite the fact that it would have been easier for Finland and the Navy Seals to buy AK-47 variants from other Eastern European, or Russian sources.

Norinco of China, Zastava of Yugoslavia, and Valmet/Sako of Finland all use at least 1.5mm steel for their stamped receivers on their AK variants, thus eliminating the need for a anti-trip device that does not solve the problem of too thin of receiver, found in the trigger groups of thinner 1mm steel receivers of Warsaw-Pact AKM's. The thicker 1.5mm stamped receivers found in Norinco, Valmet/Sako, and Zastava/Serbian rifles are more durable.

The thicker 1.5mm receiver AK's are a lot less likely to experience malfunctions like the thinner 1mm receiver AK's do, when the thicker receiver Chinese, Yugoslavian, or Valmet's get hot under rapid fire, sustained-fire situations, because there's less "fatigue", thus "flex" & jams, in the thicker 1.5mm steel receivers, than in the thinner-walled receivers of the Warsaw-Pact AKM-type rifles.
