Default Milled mak90 good deal?

Milled mak 90 with thumbhole stock in very decent shape. Looks barely fired after disassembling. Comes with a 75 round drum( not sure of country) 4 30s all seem to be chinese or atleast 2 for sure and 3 5 rounders for $890. Looking for a Chinese but wanted to see if I should look around. Shop will do 90 day layaway too which is always a help this time of year.

Doesn't sound like too bad of a deal, especially if the drum is Chinese. Most stamped Mak's are $600-$800 with milled guns having a premium over that.

I say go for it. I picked up a used stamped MAK-90 locally for $550 last month, straight cut, looked barely fired but only came with 1 Tapco mag, (Im assuming Chinese) screw on muzzle brake, and a shitty dark green cotton sling. With a milled receiver and all those mags assuming they are real Chinese I would get it at that price myself

At a minimum, you need to buy the unfinished IWD stock, which is pricy.
IWD stock is a definite. As for the drum it was a rear loader and had a blued finish like most other chinese parts. It also had some spots of rust and I could just tell it was older. Also FWIW, the receiver said I.D.E. INC above the made in China stamp. Is that anything to be concerned over? I see most that say Acc intrac or something of that sort. Is this just the importer?

Value is subjective.

That being said, if I had the money I'd do it. Always wanted a milled Chicom & in my opinion that price seems pretty good.

I was thinking the same thing as I started to realize the $300 on top of the rifle for the IWD stock. The barrel was already threaded which is a plus. I've been looking for a 1911 lately and would rather put the money towards that. I just happened to see this mak and figured I'd ask the advice of the files.

Just remember everything is all cut off, butchered, and the replacements are hard to find, expensive and not many options available. Also, when you get through it is still a MAK-90.

Yep, that will turn heads at any range. That you can shoot all day long like it was meant to. And as good as any Legend.

Love my milled MAK-90

Nice and a great job on that with everything blending in.

Back out the round mag,

And 4 30rdrs(if chicom) and that's about 150-200 from the 890. 690-740 for the gun...

IWD stuff are nice but way too spendy. Mine is original Chinese chu wood stock for milled receiver (picked it up at a local gun show for $25). Virgin, untapped with stain from storage. Milled spiker HG from a member here on the Files.

The stock is not modified, just the receiver. As far as the cost of the furniture (original Chinese) and receiver mod, it might be $50 more than the complete IWD set but you get the correct looking Type 56 milled receiver and not the bastardized unfinished UF milled MAK receiver constantly reminds you of the AWB.

Here's the detailed built thread from last July:
