Probably a fair deal. Unless very old and crappy condition, the ammo is about $80. Mags about $7 each. NORthern INdustries COmpany is the gov't shell that makes all Chicom AKs. MAK90 is a model. Someone else can tell you if it is allowed to have a sep pistol grip as-is, or if you need the thumbhole type stock on it now. Plastic Drag type stocks vary widely in quality (llok at a Romak3 on another vendor site, patterned after the Russian Dragunov, your butt stock will be shaped like that).

In the pictures I am seeing of the MAK90, they seem to have about a 16" bbl or so. Is that standard with this model?

Can there be a preban model of the MAC90 so I would be able to attach a collapsable stock to this or would it have to have already been attached?

What countries produce the MAC90 and which model is preferable?

lot's of questions, sorry... I have to jump on this quickly.

Pretty much, AFAIK

No preban MAKs, AFAIK, all collapsable stocks would have to be welded, if so attached.

China

Not a problem.

Great info, thanks. I think I may be able to chew him down to about $250 but assuming it is in good condition, nothing cantered and relatively clean...would this be a good buy at 300 or should I maybe shop around.

I guess what I'm asking is on a scale of 1-10, '10' being a great deal and '1' being I was suckered...what am I getting?

Anything else I should look for when I check it out tomorrow?

If the reifle is in good/excellent shape, and not alot of rounds have been fired through it, $300 is a real good price, as these rifles are generally considered to be of better quality than SARs.

At the Berea show earlier, another board member was happy to pay $400 for a mint condition Mak90 with the original wood thumbhole stock, no mags or ammo included.

If you plan on putting an original type stock on it check to see if the receiver is angle cut. Angle cut receivers don't look that great with an original type stock.

The back of the receiver will be slanted and not at a 90* angle.
