I have a converted Mac90 and they are fine AK variants. Fit and finish is very good and is a fine shooter. Yes, it is a 7.62x39.

I need to know what is a good price on the Mac 90? I don't no how long this will be up for sale, and don't want to miss a deal, is $400 high or low

Are they made in different countries like other Aks, if so which is more preferred, and are there any to stay away from? Do they all have the thunbhole stock? If so, how is it to replace?

They are very nice weapons. I love my MAK-90 and only paid $300 for it.

i consider the MAK-90 second only to the polytech legend. my MAK is the most accurate AR i have ever shot. i own a SAR, a hunganrian and romy kit built rifles and i have owned a MAADI and a polytech in the past. i have also shot many AKs in various conditions while overseas. my MAK at home is rediculously accurate. one of these days im going to buy some lapua and benchrest it. has a pretty nice trigger pull for an AK too.

i bought mine from an old lady who's grandsons were liquidating grandpas gun collection. she had a matched pair of MAKs and she told me $500 for the pair, i told her that was low and she said she didnt care. i sold one for $450 and kept the other.

Sounds like you got a nice deal, this one is advertised locally, and I'm thinking about calling the seller tomorrow, and try to get a look at it, the advertised price is $400, I may see if he will take 350 for it. Do yours or do most Mac90s have the thumbhole stock? I never liked the looks of them, but never shot one, I may like the function. How hard would it be to change the stock to a plain AK style? I'm pretty familiar with ARs, but clueless to the AKs. Thanks, Treeman

There are conversion kits for the standard stock from thumbhole type. As long as your state allows the change, you're good to go.

Tapco used to carry the conversion kits, IIRC??????

$400 is about average for a Mac-90 these days.

Thanks, I should have called today. I'll try tomorrow,, if its in good shape, and he will go lower, I'm gonna get it.

They are some of the best quality AK clones. You can convert it to original stock if you add the required US made parts. It is cheap and easy. Go to the AK forum, for the details.

Its MAK-90

Modified AK....M A K

I really like mine, I payed $250 for it used. Far superior to the WASR and it usually runs about the same price. Mine has never failed to date.

Mine came with the thumbhole stock but I swapped out for pistol grip configuration.

Ironwood Designs has everything you need to do this. If your rifle is a stamped, straight cut receiver you can pretty much put whatever you want on it. If its angle cut or milled your stuck with whats offered at Ironwood Designs. Mine was straight cut so I bought synthetic furniture off K-Var.

good gun, have 3000rnds through mine without a jam or fte. I got mine at a local pawnshop for $300 with one mag. You should be able to find a slightly used one for around 300-350.

I've seen that in the paper. Start at $300.00 and go to $350.00 if you have too. It should be a milled/angle cut. The only option for a stock and pistol grip is www.ironwooddesigns.com
edit: $400.00 is a little high
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 6:18:01 PM EDT
if it is a milled gun, $400 is a steal.

bought my milled mak for 200 traded it on my ptr-91 for 200 a 2 years later

great shooter and they also come in 223
Link Posted: 2/22/2006 2:40:26 PM EDT
they are nice AKs

i missed a great opertunity to put one on layaway for $300

Link Posted: 2/24/2006 8:13:21 PM EDT
I don't know why you would want a milled one! MK himself designer of the AK went to the stamped model because it could flex more!

I think of all the AK variants I've owned and sold the 36S might be one of the best in fit and finnish,chrome bore,stainless bolt,carrier,all matching numbers!

And great wood to add! But the Mak-90 is also (and can be found)in fine quality also!!

You get what you pay for with an AK!!!
