Nice Rifle OP. I remember when I got my first 56-2. Then they populate quickly. It’s a must own. Nice grab

I believe there is one in existence, yes. I think it was done for the owner of Kengs if I'm not mistaken. I think the owner of the Chicom blog has it.

Yes they most certainly do. I have a 56s already, had to sell my 56-1 to help with the purchase of this one.

Default How Do You Know

Hi. I'm semi-new to the AK Files so forgive me if I violate a rule... I've been watching these guns for almost a year with no luck. Good job OP!

How do you identify a 56 that was truly manufactured with the bakelite furniture? Is there a marking on the gun? A serial number range? Would it be different identifying a Norinco than a Polytech?


Does anyone else think it's strange that Polytech Legends can go for almost as much as these rifles?

Thanks.

There must be some kind of black market for un-marked Poly dust covers.

I recently bought a milled 386 MAK-90 that had no dust cover, and the guy I bought the gun from said he'd sold the un-serialed dust cover off that rifle to someone who made him an offer for it that he just couldn't pass up.

My milled Mak90 has SN on dust cover.

There are internet reports of owners with both serialed and non-serialed covers on milled MAKs.

Nice purchase. I don't know of an AK guy in this world who wouldn't like that.
