    Question Sling for MAK90

    Next thing to get for my MAK90 is a quality sling. What slings do you guys use for your defense rifles? I'm leaning towards getting a 2-point sling; I'm not concerned with having to have a 1 point sling as I don't think it would be that practical for me.

    I saw this LaRue Tactical padded sling; do any of you use it? Pros/Cons?

    I have a Magpul CTR stock and a Viking Tactics LAMB installed (not pictured)...thanks for your feedback!

    I like VTAC and Magpul. Your 90 is looking good, if I were you I would thread the barrel and put a break on it. The break sure did help my MAK 90.
    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!

    Thanks...saw your comment on the other thread. I do have some US made Tapco magazines that didn't make the picture. The only non US parts that I have put on is the Mako handguard set but I thought they were considered 1 piece altogether...are they considered 2?

    TAPCO - Section 922r Compliance

    I was figuring I was right at the limit of 10 foreign parts with my Tapco mags (-3), no muzzle break to begin with (-1), Magpul stock (-1), and US Palm Grip (-1)...I do want to be within the law! Thanks for your advice...some other guys I communicated with said that with the MAK90, you only had to swap in 5 US made parts to be compliant since it didn't come with a muzzle break...

    Oh, and the cheek riser--I want to pick one up from Magpul when I see them in stock sometime...my brother got the .5" one on his MAK90...I guess they offer .25" and .75" ones as well...thanks for your help!

    Zeebra,

    I believe you are good to go if you use US made mags. I actually did the Tapco G2 trigger change out so I could use any mag I wanted. I have not had issues with Tapco mags (minor sanding of the lip for fitting), but frankly I really like traditional AK mags and bulgy mags. This also eliminated any chance of me accidentally mixing and matching the wrong mag. I also found that the .5 Magpul riser works best for AK's. Here is an old picture of my MAK-90, I have since threaded the barrel and added a PRS muzzle break.

    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!

    I would like to do the trigger sometime too...I've heard that the Tapco trigger actually works smoother than the factory one...fact or fiction?
