Rate the MAK-90

On a scale from 1-10 (1= Trash, 10=Excellent Battle Rifle)

How Do you Rate the Norinco MAK-90 (stamped Receiver)?


I guess the 10 is a Pre-Ban Top of the line like the PolyTech Legend. and a 1 is a crappy worst build you've ever seen.


Please elaborate!!! Appreciate feedback

8 on a general rating. 9.5 on function. Age and time of import radically affect the rating. Assume this is early squared reciever. Add bonus points for milled

The Mak-90 is one of my favorites.

If i could ever get my hands on a milled Mak, I'd trade a kidney...

I paid $179 for mine back in the early 90s, haven't shot it in at least ten years. I used to shoot that crappy yellow box flame throwing NORINCO ammo in it all the time until they banned it from being imported.

The question doesn't clearly identify what we are rating it against. Other AKs? ARs? Cheese sticks? Individually hand crafted figurines suitable as investment grade art?

I am far from an AK guru, but I will say this for the Norinco MAK90. A friend has had one for many years and I have personally witnessed him put probably 10K rounds through it and the whole time he never cleaned the thing once outside of an occasional patch down the barrel. I'm talking maybe 3 - 4 times. Thing has run without so much as a hiccup. I opened it up the other day to do break it all down and clean it for him and I couldn't believe the amount of crap in that thing and it just kept on running.

Edit: For the record, this is a square cut receiver.
