Just picked this up. Looks to be a Poly Tech National Match converted to MAK-91 specs either by an importer or by the factory.


Also for some reason it looks like a left hand section of the barrel was polished or otherwise disfigured. Possibly a a slip up at the factory or a job left half done?

More photos to be added shortly

The rifle has a standard cut milled receiver and originally had a cleaning rod/threaded barrel. Additionally it has the standard diameter non hooded front sight vs the larger Norinco hooded version.

It also has a pre-ban type 3 style sling loop installed into the receiver, the factory installed scope rail and the muzzle device detent hole has been welded shut. So, with the square cut receiver, the MAK91 overstamp, the welded shut cleaning rod hole, I would say you have a pretty rare item, a transitional Polytech Legend National Match, with a mix of pre-ban & post ban features.

These guns have some of the heaviest barrels. Very nice specimen!

Judging by the grinding marks on the front sight base, I would guess the marks on the barrel are where a previous owner chucked the barrel up in a lathe and without properly adjusting the cutting tool, cut the threads off the barrel and gouged out that sight.

Otherwise very nice rifle illustrating that the only rules with Chinese AK variants were there were no rules.
