Not sure what you are wanting, looks like you have all the info already.

Chinese, Norinco Manufacture, Plant 386, Ban model.

Imported by B West

Ak-47 sporter (AKS-47)

Caliber 7.62 x 39

Not real up on chinese AKs but I believe it is a AK (heavier) barrel profile with the smaller trunnion diameter (19mm) Versus AKM profile. I don't know how or if matchs up with the usual classifications Type I, II, III etc as it appears the chinese did their own thing...

It is a post ban MAK (worth about $475 IMHO), with a valuable set of handguards, and grip on it ( value about $125), however someone has cobbled a milled fiberglass stock on it. If it had the correct stock on it it would be worth about another $175...again that is in my humble opinion. ymmv

the ak is unfired and i got from the original owner (~60 year old) He told me that is all original. I thought first also that it was a Mak but there isnt any mention on the receiver. I didnt know if it was imported by B west or is a kit put together on a B west receiver

Buy the gun, NOT the story. Sporter=MAK=postban. No, bayo lug. No,cleaning rod holder.

Pic from my sitehttp://www.chicom47.net

see how the stock is supposed to look/fit. Someone tried to pass it off as a rare 56-3 Norinco
