here's what everyone references
www.ak47world.com/rifles.html
It has the third pin even though nothing is on it, it can readily be converted

I see something there.....and what tripped you this one is questionable? All mak-90s aren't like this just a few ones that were marked for seizure and destruction

there is something below the center support that definitely should not be there

What tipped me was the receiver is for a underfolder stock. I remember seeing a few of these back in the early 90's.


You found it

That page says

" We will iss THIS WARNING: WHILE MAK-90 RILFES ARE USUALLY THE RIFLE WE RECOMMEND as "The Best ENTRY-LEVEL/low-priced AK-47 variant" for sale in America today, STAY AWAY from MAK-90 rifles imported by the importer "Le Banu" of upstate New York, (but NOT ALL MAK-90 Rifles, as some will incorrectly infer), that are marked with 3 position fire-control selector markings (sometimes in Chinese characters, other times with the letters L, D, S for the 3 positions on the right side of the receiver), as the ATF classifies these as "ILLEGAL MACHINEGUN RECEIVERS" with, or without the receiver being drilled for a 3rd axis pin!"


So only MAK-90's from Le Banu, NY are classified as machine guns?

there are better articles and actual ATF rulings out there on this subject that have been posted I'll have to search around some more

I did, I dont want to see anyone getting into trouble including the seller.

He didnt know about it either. This thread and links helped.

if he was smart he would completely disassemble it and destroy the receiver and still have the parts...guys come on here all the time with these MAKs, and that's what they've done
