Went shooting yesterday with my son and his friend. Reminded myself of something and learned a few things:

1. Anyone looking for a GREAT receiver and barrel to build/customize an AK47 around, look no further than a milled MAK 90. I have more than a dozen AK47s and had recently picked up a milled MAK 90 with pistol grip configuration at a local gun show. The receiver on this AK is built like a tank. What a pleasure to shoot a reasonably priced rifle that is so well made.

2. Loaded up a bunch of mags with the 7.62 x 39 "Portugese/Bosnian" ammo. This is excellent high powered accurate ammo at a very reasonable price. I went to order more from Sportsman's Guide because of the price + coupon codes but I see they are out of stock. Too bad since last time 3000 rounds came out to be about $300 delivered. Even at $139/1000 delivered from Ammoman/Eric I feel it is well worth it.

3. Had replaced followers and floorplates in ten 40 round Romanian mags with USA manufactured FSE I had obtained from RPBUSA. They functioned absolutely flawlessly.

We All had a Great Day!

Hey Tim, what's your opinion of the milled Maks?

The milled Mak I picked up at the gun show has the slant cut receiver. Whoever "unbanned" it made a small triangle shaped wood wedge to fill in the gap between the rear of the receiver and the front of the stock. Did a really nice job matching the wood and finish.

They're excellent rifles, top knotch AK's, basically an inexpensive Legend.

All they need is to be unbanned.

Probably the best "sleeper" buy out there, just make sure that the receiver isn't slant cut if you go looking for them, it's a pain in the butt to find a decent stock set for angle cut AK receivers.



I don't pretend to know everything about these MAK's ( MILLED ). But from what I gathered Most if not all are Slant cut. I haven't found any that was straight cut ( Milled ) with Mak 90 stamped on it. Now there might have been a few that was hung up in customs when the ban happened and they was converted differently. I really don't know. But out of the last 50 Mak ( Milled ) I personally have looked at or inquired about they have been slant cut. But Ironwood makes a High quality stock set for them .About $110 shipped. Walnut or Laminate. . There are few poster that have posted pic's of there's with IW sets. I ordered a Maple years ago for a SAR 1 . Quality was top Knotch. Cheers WarDawg
