I have been wanting to purchase my first AK and with prices finally coming down I decided now was a good time to start looking. Well after much much research and being completely confused by all the different models and makers and importers and mag wobble and the stock is too short and my AR is better than your AK I was ready to give up. There were only two things that the majority of people could agree on 1. Arsenal makes a great AK and 2. The old Mak 90 was a very well built AK. Well Arsenal is way out of my price range so off in search of a Mak I went.....WOW Maks arent cheap. Look them up they are starting in the 700 range and topping out in the 1500 range, yes I know that's what the seller is asking and probably not what they will get but, yikes!!!! Eventually I found a no reserve auction on a Norinco Mak 90 with the funky fiberforce stock and got in on the bidding and yay me I won with a bid of $500. Rifle came in and I am very happy with its condition, nice clean barrel and nothing wrong with it that a good cleaning didn't take care of, well the stock did have some wear on it that bothered me a bit but some Rustoleum took care of that. I'm still up in the air about the stock and the color I used but I must admit it's growing on me. Oh yeah here are some pictures.
