I stopped at my lgs today and they had a milled Mak90 with the dark wood stock and 386 in the oval on it. The condition is good/used and the numbers match. The asking price is 600 with 2 mags and no box. I thought it was a bit high price wise but would like to find out if you folks think I need to get my ass back there on Monday. Thanks for any opinions.

Pics would be more helpful but I can tell you I paid $400 for one about 5 years ago that needed some work since someone had put some EG furniture on it.

$600 for a milled MAK around my area is a very good price. Most stamped ones here easily go for over $600, and plenty over $700. Your area may be different, but if the market is similar to mine, and the condition is good, I'd consider it a good buy. We'll see what others think.

Stamped Mak90's are drawing that price here and more. A milled factory rifle is a good investment. I would buy without regret if it is still there Monday.

Yea, thats a good deal nowadays.
I bought a nib milled mak 91 with a 20 inch barrel from my dealer back in 92. My first ak. IIRC i payed 289 for it.
It reminded me of the polytech NM model.
Go get that thing monday!

I wouldn't mind finding a milled MAK-90 for $600 these days. The ones I have seen are selling for closer to $1000!

In short, if I found a milled MAK-90 for $600 I would have a new Chinese rifle in by possession.

Well............is mga4848 a new proud owner?
I couldn't pull the trigger at 600. My intent was to deban it with ironwood furniture and I would probably have 900 in it before it was done. I already have a very nice stamped mak so I can live without it. I did make an offer of 500 but so far it's not accepted.

That's pretty much what the one I'm talking about looks like. It would be a lot easier to pull the trigger at 600 if It didn't look like no work until spring.

If you buy it for $600, you can always easily get your money back and then some. There is no way you would ever lose money buying that gun. Buy it now and de-ban it later.

Here's a milled MAK90 that was in rough condition that I converted myself. Wish I hadn't sold it though :(





The conversion was very easy. Just needed a welding buddy, drill press, good drill bits, TAP fluid, a dremel, sandpaper, Oxpho Creme, and some step bits for the underfolder holes.
