Looked Chinese, but even the earliest of imported CHICOMs had markings. Bet it was a private kit-build franken-AK - which is perfectly legal.

Does it shoot OK? Else, who cares - always good to have a sanitized or paper-less gun around the house.

Is there a small hole just in front of the mag well??
If there is it is most likely a kit built AK.

For a home built kit, probably around $450-$800 depending on how well it was done, the condition of the parts used, and the market in your area. Things get kind of scetchy with built guns. If it was built on a home built receiver with no serial number, the person who built it really isn't supposed to sell it, if I understand the policies on this correctly. Also if it was built on a Kit I would let someone inspect it to make sure it was built right, fires safely, and that the builder didn't use some of the military fire control parts without first doing the correct modifications to them to render them semi-auto only.

Actually it kind of looks like that receiver may have the infamous "third pin hole" that was present on some MAK 90 rifles that got imported and were considered contraband by the ATF because of the ability to accept full auto parts. it may have been subsequently "Sterilized" to make it less obvious that it is a banned rifle. If that is the case the value is $30,000 in fines, 30 years in prison and the loss of gun rights for life. May want to contact an NFA dealer who could possibly take possession and turn it in.

Google Contraband MAK-90 to get some good pics of the receiver configuration that was banned. Hard to tell for sure from the posted pics here.

I have never really understood this , its really ridiculous . That a 3rd pin hole makes it contraband item even if it doesnt have a F/A sear in it . Thats like saying your AR15 is a contraband item because it has a F/A BCG in it with no F/A firecontrol group .
The crap they come up with amazes me

I don't get it myself. But that was the case when they made the ruling in the '90s.


But most AR15 receivers don't have the third set of holes for the interrupter either.
