I am in the market for one with a barrel nut. Can anyone point me in the right direction? There are a couple on gunbroker, but I would like to stay in our ak47.net family and give someone from here my money

"Maadis are crude, painted, scrap wooden stocked over priced (currently) examples of the breed"

I totally disagree, Some of the MISR's may have been that way but the Steyr bbl'd early imports and the RML's from PARS are generally quite fine examples of a Russian AK built on Russian tooling by Egyptian tradesmen trained by Russians in Cairo.

I have many thousand rounds through mine without one single hicup.

Yes Maadis are painted, however that paint is over top of a phosphated finish. Not bad, beats the coolies out of a blued type finish.

I can't see the complaint on the Maadi, but I didn't buy mine for its looks either. It cleaned up well, both inside and out.

Point well taken Anothergene, a hammergun I guess he is looking for, sorry for being on the defensive on the Maadi, I just luv her so!

Thanks for all your advise. I am more concerned with function, not looks.

I remember these for cheap, all over the place, in 1995.............

Yup, I got one in 95. I sold it to get an AR way back when

Looks like the one I just bought! Man some people have some serious beef with these Maadi's. I certainly liked my first one and bought a second!

Yep.....Bobby's Pawn Shop in Gastonia, NC
has one I saw the other day. Was around $349 I think. Had been used, was a little scratched up but very useful. I started to get it but I already got one.
They probally have no idea what they got, they are just old guys running a pawn shop.
