Mak 90

4661 18
Does anybody know if a like new MAK 90 with 700 rounds of ammo for 450$ is a good deal?

The rifle alone is 350$.

I'm guessing yes.

To the OP is the buttstock where the wood meets the metal reciever slanted or straight up or and down?
The straight up and down cut reciever I hear is worth more and is more rare.
This is just hear say I heard, I'm not a MAK 90 guru.
Maybe someone else can chime in and shed light on this?

I don't know about stock.

I'm going to buy the rifle without the ammo.

It's a Great Deal

In my opinion, the Chinese Norinco Mak 90 is the cream of the crop in a budget assault rifle... I own two and I'm very pleased with them.

I do not think you can beat a Mak 90 in good shape for $500... maybe a little more.

$350 is an absolute steal.

I also own two AR's and a bolt action 308 but there's no doubt what rifle I'd want in a tough spot... Mak 90 all the way.

You don't see a lot of posts where people regret letting a rifle go... you see folks lamenting parting with Norinco's though... Folks got em for $199 in the box in the mid 90's... or so I understand.

An ATK left side folder is the cat's meow if you shoot left handed.

I like to line up potato's at 50 yards and fire standing offhand... bad news for the potato's.

You're buying a heavier receiver than almost any other stamped AK... 50% thicker at 1.5mm... and you're getting a heavy profile barrel that's chrome lined.

These are hellfore stout rifles built to last.

The original furniture sucks... but you're probably gonna replace it with US parts and throw in a Tapco double hook trigger. If memory serves me, that's enough US parts to make you legal again... but make sure and do your homework.

Got it.

Here she is.

Congrats! I really kick myself for selling my old MAK a long time ago. It's a great rifle. They are very highly regarded in the AK world. It should serve you well! :thumb:
