Default Mak 90

This look normal for a Mak 90, I have seen some pictures of sharp edges on maks and know they are rough but this looks different to me.

Not sure what part of the gun that even is. Maybe I didn't stare at it long enough? There's no part of mine that looks like that, though.

Looks like the lug on the front trunnion.

Not normal.

Its the inside of the left side of the receiver - where the rails meet the trunnion.if you pop off your top cover and look where the bullet guide meets the rails from the selector side, that's the spot.

The Chinese milled out that entire slot to assist the bolt to rotate, where you'd normally just see a ramp on European bullet guides, otherwise.

It doesn't look normal, but there's no movement that occurs that far down. The bolt rotates clockwise. And by 'normal' I mean it looks like it was sloppily done. Probably won't affect function, but that crack-looking thing may be something else entirely.

I thought that was cracked.
The Chi-Coms have the bullet guide milled into the trunnion.

Like Craigan said, the bolt rotates in the opposite direction.

That crack-looking thing is what I was referring to as not looking like any part of my MAK-90. Might wanna get that looked at by a professional. Hope you have better luck than I do finding someone who will work on AK's.

Yes normal as in is this normal for a Mak 90 I have seen pictures of sharp corners and such from other posts so that's why I'm asking.
