I'm sorry i know there is an egyptian link but this one gets a jillion times more traffic.  here is the maadi that has been giving me the blues.  from what ive seen the misr-10 is supposed to have a thumbhole stock and single stack mags.  as you can see this one doesnt.  

when i bought it i got four mags. one like this one on the right and three of the ones on the left.

can anyone tell me anything bout the mag on the right, anything special/crappy about it?  what country they may be from?

i paid $325 for everything in the pics and the little cleaning kit, did i get a decent deal?

The "C" on the right one's floor plate is (I believe) a Century mark, meaning it's a US part. Century has (had)  been converting WASRs from single to double stack configuration, so it's possible they may have done the MISR as well. As long as you play the parts count game, it should be okay to have.

I have one and just bought another. I think you got a good deal. What's the problem with it?

the flat back mags are CHICOM the ribbed back is east euro combloc.   I'm no mag expert so correct me if I'm wrong.

My original Maadi mags say Egypt on them.  Looks like a nice piece.

It looks like one of the last Egyptian Maadi's that Century International Arms imported, circa 1998 or so.  Century stayed in compliance with the five US parts rule (at the time) with their own trigger/hammer/disconnector, gas piston and two magazine parts (follower and baseplate).  It looks like that's your Century Arms compliance magazine (marked with a "C") on the right in the last picture.  Since Century imported the entire rifle, not "assembled" by the usual Century Arms group of half trained (subjective) monkee's, they're actually pretty good rifles.  Made in an Egyptian Arsenal where they've made that rifle (ARM) since the early 1960's.  

The only "less than steller" Maadi's are the Century Arms "manufactured" abortions made with Egyptian receivers and left over Chi-Com parts.   Those pre-date your rifle by a year or so.  Century (and everyone else it seems) got out of the Egyptian AK business when they found out the Romanians work for less and the rifle quality didn't really suffer!  Good luck.
