I have a friend who is selling a Mak-90 in the $700ish ball park. I know it is a Norinco, but what do I need to look for in terms of it being legal and what would dictate it's age and any other helpful facts. Thanks for any help
MAK 90 came in aft5er the '89 ban,and stopped before the 94 ban.
If she is all stock(T-hole stock) ,your good to go. If she is "dressed" with a pistol grip,you
need to have 5 US parts,6 if the barrel is threaded.
That all said,she is a pre-ban and can have all the nasty stuff.
I'm in Otsego also if you ever needed a helping hand on her. (Otego)
For 700 get it and don't worry about the details. Straight or slant cut receiver doesn't matter at that price.
Make sure it doesn't have a 3rd rivet above the mag releAse as those are illegal(and extremely rare). Pics of what I mean are available thru a google search. If its stock and you want to de-ban it in the future check out Ironwood Designs for stock sets. Only prob w de-banning is that the Norinco's are the only AK's with a good trigger. A shame to change it out for a crapco G2
if I get it, I'll post a video....apparently there is 5-600 rounds with this also I am told....worth looking into....particularly so as I have someone wanting to take my WASR 10/63 off me for what I paid for it
