IMHO... your wallet; you'll need to spend on Ironwood stocks that are specifically made for the slant-cut recvr - but you'll want USA wood anyway so as to have that "AK" look.
Or pay to have the recvr re-built for square cut - then just look for real CHICOM wood or buy non-slant-cut Ironwood.
And you'll ditch that sweet CHICOM double-hook trigger for a TAPCO G2 - the kind in any WASR.
And maybe the piston too, for another US part if you choose to add the muzzle-threads.
So at the end of the day, you'll have a franken-CHICOM that you spent money on - to make it look like a WASR.
Or - just leave it as-is, thumbhole and all so as to enjoy its full-Chinese-ness. At that point, a MAK90 becomes a good buy.
