I bought this on gunbroker and got to pick it up at the local ffl yesterday. Seems this 223 MAK90 has found a new home. What do you all think?

Looks great. Hope it was a good deal. Did the mags come with it too?
yes, the 6 30 rounders and 3 15 round mags came with it. I bought it on gunbroker from a guy in Utah. I figured that once the cost of buying that many mags was figured in the rifle wasn't a bad price. It is a 1990 import and has the triangle 66 marking on it also. Nice thing is the threads under the collar are intact, and the plunger pin is jsut depressed into the site base. Also the cleaning rod can be held in place no problem. I hope I can find a matching stock for the handguards (I don't find the thumbholes very comfortable). But that will have to be down the road just a bit.

shephards crooks....no way, I cant find em (not at a decent price). I'll send you the pins and springs just shoot me your address.

If you need one I can order it for you and put it in with the flats when we close out the gb.

PM being sent. And I will have to order a few of the shepherds hooks (crooks, whatever they are called :D ) and have them put in with the flats.
Thanks.

Bigblock, I hope it shoots straight too (i'm sure it will).

Nice! I have always kicked myself for not picking one of those up when they were imported.

How is the workmanship on the gun? the couple I've had had some nice gouges on the rear rivet trunions and over all mediocre workmanship.

This one has the same high quality workmanship as my mak90 in 7.62x39. Maybe I have been lucky but the chinese guns I have had have all been of the highest quality. Comparing the finish and looks to my sar1 is like night and day.

Thanks for the positive words. I did get a chance to shoot it on Monday and the groupings were consistent. I feel that once the thumbhole stock is replaced that things will work even better seeing the thumbhole seems to be designed for a right handed shooter. My dad shot it (he is right handed) and he loved how it felt and how accurate it was. As for me being a southpaw I can hardly wait for a regular stock as it should then be more comfortable for me.

Looks like you got a great deal with the mags included!

Wish my .223 NHM90 had provisions for a cleaning rod like the early MAK's...:bawling:

FWIW, the K-var Romanian RPK 74 flash hider is identical to the Chicom .223 flash hider, Sept. is just around the corner...

Hmmm....That just might be an idea :D. I wish I would have known that before my last k-var order, lol.
