Is this a good deal?

It's a made in China, has a milled receiver and has the stock that has a hole for your thumb. I liked the way that stock felt compared to the original style stalk.

It looked pretty nice. On Sale for $349.99, would save me the hassle of buying it online.
Also had a dark baby blue teflon coated AK made in Romania for $499.99. Looked to be of good quality. Had a flip up rear sight.

Is Norinco a good brand?

Get the Mak90. Much better quality than a Romanian rifle. Also, 499 for a ROMY AK, it better include 10 mags and some ammo.

350 for a milled Mak90 is right on, get it.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 1:02:18 PM EDT
I would not buy it, I would actually post the name and number of the store so the rest of us could call them up and mock them for stocking such crap.....yea.......

Link Posted: 3/1/2006 1:26:02 PM EDT
Yes, buy it and then take of the Ahole stock and add some nice wood from IRONWOOD.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 1:33:05 PM EDT
Milled..........HELL YES
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 2:14:58 PM EDT
Ok Let's just talk about the Milled Norinco Mak-90 with the hole in the stock. I got 4 yays and 1 nay.

Any others? =) I'm assuming it's better than a Romanian and not as good as a Vector? Or is it as good.

That is an absolute STEAL on a milled AK, butthole postban or not.

Get it, slap some Ironwood or surplus Russian furnature on it, and if anything else, I'll be jealous of you!

Hell yes buy it. Ask him if you can look it over, work the action, take the cover off, look at the innards. They are imho, some of the best quality AK's out there.

If you ever want to transition back to the original pistol grip style, you can replace the stock (along with the other compliance parts) with an american made original style one from ironwooddesigns.com among others

They even have the "slant cut" type stocks, so there is not one good reason not to buy it.

Mine has been very accurate for an AK, and 100% reliable.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 3:19:38 PM EDT
If it has the dark wood then its has a spring loaded firing pin like the poly tec rifles.

I believe that with the milled receiver about the only choice is going to be Ironwood furniture if he wants to get rid of the thumbhole. $350.00 isn't bad but you are going to have to drop about $125.00 into it to get it to be a really good looking rifle.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 4:59:46 PM EDT
They are one of the best AKs made. Most people dont like the thumhole stock, that is why the prices are somewhat low. The Milled mak guns only came in as 1 batch in 1993. This is a good price. Quite frankly I would rahter have a norinco than most any other brand out there. The quality is typically extremely high. It seems hard to believe that chinese make good stuff but dont think twice and get it, it is top notch stuff.

I own one, would buy another for that price. Ironwood is the way to go for a replacement stock set. Next one I'd do would be in Walnut I just threaded my barrel today. here is an older pic.

Sweet, that is a national match 91 isnt it?
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 7:46:36 PM EDT
any AK at 350 is a good deal at that price!

if you dont buy it i will go down to houston and bitch slap some sense into you,...then find the local store that you are talking about and but it for my self!

but in all seriousness,..that is a screamming deal! i wish i could have gotten a milled AK as my first AK,...if you get it you wont be disappointed at all.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 12:52:59 AM EDT
Go buy that shit!
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 7:32:51 AM EDT
Chinese are the best AKs made........Milled is top of the line even if it is a thumbhole stock. Vector is way below any Chinese AK and a world above a WASR.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 10:41:44 AM EDT
That is a great deal, you would be hard pressed just to find the receiver that cheap. You better get back there and hope it isn't gone already.

I am nervous about this rifle, it being my first rifle and all.

I know how to work the manual safety, but how do you load rounds and check to make sure there's no round in the chamber?
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 5:08:07 PM EDT
Rockin deal. Dont ever sell that one or you will regret it. Your questions will be very clear to you shortly. I am in no way teaching you anything or doing any more than reminding you of things that a real firearm safety class will tell you. Take a firearm class, it is money well spent, it will teach you a lot. Assuming you do this and not to possibly listen to me for firearm safety I will say a few things. Hopefully someone has better advice than me but.... always always consider it loaded it may seem silly but it is so much better than putting a hole in someone you love. never put your finger on the trigger until your sights are on something you want to destroy. A lot of people have been killed by people playing around. The bullets will go into the top of the mag and slide to the back, they stack to one side then the other... itll be obvious when you start inserting them (pointy end forward ) The chamber check is a simple grabbing the charging handle on the side and pulling it back to look. Make sure you see light in a hole down the barrel with no magazine in the bottom of the gun (otherwise itll load a round when you let go) when you are certain it is empty then put the safety on and know for a fact that it is still loaded. The end of the gun brings death, dont sweep across anyone--- ever---- ever.
Remember these things:
#1 Always Keep your Muzzle pointed in a safe direction!!!! (dont forget that bullets will carry for miles)
#2 Never load until you are in the position and ready to shoot.
#3 Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
#4 Make sure others around you comply with these rules It is your friends, family and life at stake.
Too many people have experience with accidental discharges ... dont make the mistake of ever getting too comfortable with any weapon. Take the firearm safety class and enjoy. Anyone want to add anything?
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 5:48:56 PM EDT
Words to live by Prophet. Well put. One can never be too safe when handling firearms.

Great buy Boma
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 6:29:13 PM EDT
Thanks guys. Those rules sound much like that of pistol safety. I will be extra careful, the look alone of the AK is intimidating.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 6:33:47 PM EDT
The trigger pull is very crisp. There's no creep at all.

wow she looks beautiful,....i would say put a normal stock on it but it looks fine the way it is,...


ok man,.. heres a guide to help you out with your new toy.

step 1. point barrel in safe direction

step 2. remove magazine



step 3. push selector down to fire,..pull chargeing handle all the way back and hold

step 5. visually inspect there is no round in the chamber



step 6. release bolt handle,..put selector in safe position



YOUR RIFLE IS CLEARED/ UNLOADED


to load a mag with ammo

step 1. place round between mag lips with mag position as shown,..



step 2. push round down until it it secured in mag.



step 3. repeat step 2 until mag is loaded with 30 rounds






>>>>>keep your finger off of the trigger and out of the trigger guard until ready to fire<<<<<

now,.. to load a full mag into your weapon DO NOT DO THIS UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT!......MAKE SURE SAFTY IS IN THE UP POSITION!!

step 1. rock mag into place (oppisite of unloading)



it should look like this when locked into place



now with the safty on you can not pull the charging handle back far enough to load a round

at this point your mag is locked in place but the rifle does not have a round in the chamber,...


>>>>>keep your finger off of the trigger and out of the trigger guard until ready to fire<<<<<

WHEN YOU ARE AT THE RANGE/READY TO SHOOT push the safty selector down to the fire position and pull the charging handle all the way back and release the handle.

YOUR RIFLE IS LOADED AND READY TO FIRE.

Wow Thanks Cruise! What a nice guy.

It's good to have pictures so I don't have to guess. I have all those steps memorized now.

Yeah this stock looks OK, but it feels really good!
I may try some ironwood furniture in the far future.


Another thing. How does the flip up sight work? I see a little scale like thing that you can move back and forth.

When I look through the sights, it looks blurry unless I close one eye.

Nice job cruzie. I typed and re-typed for like half an hour earlier and could not come up with a set of instructions that I would have felt comfortable giving to an inexperienced person.

If that is a regular AK sight it is not a flip up sight. It just has a slide on it that after it is sighted in at a certain range (can't remember the exact known distance and correct term) you then can slide the slider on the rear sight to the numbered yards or meters designated on the rear sight for the different distances.

The front sight has a windage adjustment for getting the rifle on target for a known distance and then you leave it in that position as it is not easily adjusted for windage as you would with an AR-15.

The forward gips on your new MAK dont look chinese at all...possibly russian? They dont match the stock, and Ive never seen chinese wood like that before.

Could be off a Maadi. I looked at some I have and from the small amount I can see on his second picture they look like the Maadi takeoff ones I have.
Link Posted: 3/2/2006 7:53:04 PM EDT
ok boma,.. heres another bonafide cruzie27 freebie




now to get to this point,..get your rifle,.. MAKE SURE IT IS UNLOADED,.. COMPLETELY UNLOADED!

one hand on the pistol grip the other on the lower front handguard

put the butt stock to your shoulder

put your check on the butstock with your nose touching the very back corner of the reciver cover

look down the length of the barrel,.. align the front shight with the little notch in the rear sight as shown above. close one eye if it helps

keep the little slider thin on the "n" or "1" mark

there you go man,...also if you need ammo for that thing look up AMMO TO GO in brenem? breynem? tx,...about a hour N.W. of houston on that highway to Austin

What's a Maadi and where is it from?

Here are a couple more pics of the AK and it's sights. And an opossum in my backyard.

Can my AK be dry fired without worry? Or do I need snap caps like a pistol?

i had a feeling youd be a good guy,...from Tx. has a XD,.. and a AK

ive got the XD-40 Tactical great shooter,...brenham is kinda far,...but they will usually have what ever it is your looking for,...and right now 7.62 and 5.45 are kinda hard to come by. at least up here where im at

give them a call and see what they have in stock,...it may be cheaper to drive out and get it your self than have them ship it.

while i was stationed at Ft. Hood TX. i always went down to the SAXET show in Austin,.. and the ammo to go folks usually had the best deals and largest selections.

also find that shooting range out by HWY 6 i was talking about before,.. it is a super place,.. they have pistol, shotgun, and rifle fireing lines,..a skeet and trap complex,...200-300 yd ranges,.. and ones that go further but ive never been on.

i always went there when i went to houston to visit my mom and stepdad,...they let milatary shoot for free

i think like 7 bucks,..either per person or per firearm,....but you can shoot all day,.. and you dont have to buy there ammo unless you have to/want to,..and you get 2-3 free targets,... when i was home on R&R from iraq i went there in my desert uniform with a tin can full of 7.62x54r and shot until i was out of ammo.

and theres a nice park right on the other side of the road that makes a good picnic/family day spot and i wanna say there was a mall near by that you can ditch the ole'lady at to go shoot

i know the HS2000 is the predisor to the XD's but i never knew there was a fourm for it,... im more of a AK fan these days,....most of the other than AK rifles have been sold off or traded to fund my kit build projects,...

YES! Excellent advice. Too many males think because they own a weapon, they're inherently "gifted" regarding the use of a firearm. WRONG!! Humble yourself a little and take the class. Good instruction is worth a lifetime of fun AND safety! Practice, practice, practice using "Cruzie's" pics.

Just remember, when you hand the firearm to someone, remove the mag FIRST...then check the chamber. Never pull on a bolt, charging handle, slide, whatever, without removing the mag first. Then you can check the chamber to ensure it's empty, pointing the muzzle in a safe area at all times, of course. That goes with ANY firearm!

Good Luck to you and NICE FIND!!

I went back and searched the archive server for when you asked this and found your post in the General Discussion forum and The Armory forum, but could find no post started by you in the AK forum concerning a milled Norinco AK. The guys in the other forums gave you a ball park figure and told you to come ask in the proper forum where you could get the answer. If you don't post in the proper forum you aren't going to get the proper answer.

If you have a link to where you posted it on the AK forum where you were told it wasn't a good deal I would like to read it. Milled AK's and Chinese milled aren't my first choice because they are heavier than stamped and the Chinese ones are limited in how you change out the stock, but I wouldn't pass on one for $350.00.

Help, AK price check.
