So I just picked up a MAK 90 for $375 at a gun store... I couldn't pass it up, but I can't help but wonder what's the catch? The finish is perfect, it doesn't have the ugly thumbhole stock, I checked as well as I could for wear on the bolt and carrier, and muzzle and throat erosion, and everything looks to be in good shape. Is there anything else I should look for? I pick her up on Friday, and I can't help but feel like I got too good of a deal. Someone talk some sense into me.
That's a TERRIBLE price.. I think you got ripped off. But because I am a nice guy, I'll send you $375 and you can forward the rifle on to me
You did great dude! That is a steal in today's market. Be sure to post pictures.
Haha thanks man, I'm just hoping it doesn't blow up when I pull the trigger for the first time.

The catch is they probably paid the original owner $200 for the gun, so by selling it for $375, they are are making an 87.5% profit. How many businesses can do that today? Gun stores don't give much for trades, so it's much better to try to sell the gun privately. A few years ago I picked up a mint MAK for $300, & a year after that I bought an unfired milled MAK for $440, so when I see a MAK for $600+, I just have to laugh. Good deals are around all the time. You just have to ignore the crazy priced guns. Enjoy your new find! GARY N4KVE
They were probably just as dumb as the people I got my MAK-90 from and thought it was just a "cheap Chinese ak" with ugly stock. I love it when people think all stuff from china is crap. More for me
You know the rules; pics or GTFO.
ALso, check if the receiver is a "Third Pin" Contraband rifle.
If you have this, then the receiver is a machine gun receiver and the only way to go about it is to torch cut the receiver and remove the usable parts.
There are so many $400 MAKs around here they can't even unload them at gunshows anymore.
