What makes the 91/30 so freaking awesome is that it IS a cheap milsurp. A cheap milsurp that shoots a very potent round, reasonably accurately, and said round is CHEAP! It's dummy proof enough for illiterate Russian conscripts and five year olds (that's how old my son was when I taught him how to check and clear it.)

If it fits, you got bigg... er... A "little" problem...

Indy, you have a really nice Mak there. I've had a couple over the years and they are GREAT shooters. The 2 biggest things I don't like on them are the mag release and the stupid "tab" on the mags for reloading. I can't help you with the release but if you shoot me a pm with your address I believe I still have a couple easy loaders I made for Mak mags and would be happy to send ya one (It might take me a few days to dig them up but I'm 90% sure I have them). They're nothing fancy but sure do save on thumbs and finger nails.

I took it to the range today. I hate to say it (for fear of being accused of worship) but it WAS fun to shoot and 3 people shot it and all 3 were dead center on a target over and over at 15 feet. When I got home it was a breeze to clean. I like the damn thing. I could see this being my motorcycle gun or my 'just got to run to the store' gun. It's a great $295 spent. My expensive STI had a FTF. The cheap Mak did not.

I want one badly. Passed on one about 3 years ago for $200, out of stupid nitpickiness. The guy kept referring to the mags as "clips"...

Indy, if you like it and it works, nothing wrong with that. don't let the detractors make you feel guilty about buying it. enjoy it and don't let them get you down.

personally i wouldn't mind having one myself.

If he's on your ignore list, how can you see what he's posting? Play nice, HL.
