I have one made by Norinco.  Is this a good AK clone?  I wanted an AK with a collapsable stock but the pre-bans go for about 2 G's around here.  What parts will make this a better AK clone?  

Thanks!

I have a MAK-90 by Maadi.  It is Egyptian made.  The quality wasn't to bad for the price, $200.00.  This is the only AK-type rifle I own, so I can not compare quality.  I know it is no AR!  I haven't fired it much, maybe 300rnds.  I did notice that the bolt worked hard, until I "expanded" the receiver.  I have added a B-square scope mount (kind that is mounted by replacing the trigger pin).  I will mount an inexpensive red dot optic on it.  This is my  loaner rifle when a friend wants to go to the range with me.  Magazines are cheap for it, I bought  a dozen waffle side East German mags for $6.95 each.

I bought the Norinco MAK 90 new years ago. Paid $300 for the gun and a case of 1200 rounds of ammo. How cost effictive is this?  I have never had a problem one with it after firing over two thousand rounds throught it. I would like to convert it to the traditional pistol grip stock but am unaware where they sell these kits and also whether it is legal or not. It is not a tack driver but still I could not be more impressed with this firearm.

I got my Norinco MAK-90 in 1994 when there was a big scare of them becoming extinct. It's been extremely reliable ever since, without even a hiccup. I'd easily trust my life to it if necessary.

The MAK90 is a rugged, reliable, plinker. Couldn't get better than 4 MOA out of it though.

[b] Yeah, what Hvy AR said[/b]Mine isn't the most accurate, but it goes bang when I pull the trigger. [:D] Milldude

Got one, and have pretty much the same impression as everyone else - not terribly accurate, but sturdy, reliable, and FUN.

Anyone have any thoughts on the Saiga103-7.62 AK rifle conversion gunsmoke has ?  There's a picture in the AK complete rifles for sale forum.

IMHO, it's the best value there is, in an AK. Nice rifle.

The milled reciever versions (Polytech manufacture) are an absolute steal,
and I can shoot an inch with mine.
