Default Road adventures -MAK-90

On the road this week stopping along the journey to poke around in gun and pawn shops.
I hit one of several shops and noticed a MAK-90 sitting on the floor rack behind a pistol counter with a 5rd mag in it. I looked at it and the wood is beat up a little but the metal is in great shape. Tag had $649.99 on it. While I was waiting on the guy to wait on me I spied a couple of milsurp steel 30rd mags in a box a feet up.

He comes over and hands me the MAK. I look it over and asked him whats his best OTD price. He says what do you want to offer? I said $550. He said 'we are close'.
He said $570 and I will throw in a box of ammo. I said I'd rather have another steel mag than ammo. He said I dont know if I have any. I said youve got two right there. I said will you throw in both for $570? He said, "no, I'll throw in one. The other will cost you $5. So, $575 for the MAK, 1 5rd mag and 2 30rd mags -OTD.
DONE.
On my way out, he said, wait a minute and went over and gave me box of ammo. He said "I told you that I'd give you this."
Can't beat that.

Pulled the stock off later and it's a square cut receiver to boot.

Do you guy's 'used' MAK 90s seem to have the original trigger groups?

Or were the guns victims of irrational 922r paranoia?

No 922r on “sporting rifles” with thumbhole stocks.

I wanna see the square cut on that milled receiver. If true, you are one lucky dog.

It's not square. 99% of them are cut like an underfolder.

Tom Servo:
True, but many people decide to change the butt stock and feel that they must also change a few components which include the original trigger group.

Such paranoia about the ATF, which created 922r for importers.

On the milled MAK 90s the original trigger groups can be the Best rifle triggers I've ever tried out.

Check out the one Alias sent to Turbothis.
Matt squared up the rear like a Type3 or a Poly.
Turned out great!

Nevertheless, you scored big.

Op made a score as well.
Either would look nice with my last spiker bayonet kit.

Nice score!

Everytime i go into a pawn shop or lgs they always have stamped MAK 90's priced at $1,000.

One of these days i'll get a good deal on a MAK!
