Want to get an AK ....
 
I have never had one but have read up on them quite a lot. I might have an opportunity at a old Mac 90 with the thumb hole stock. Would any one be able to tell me what one of these might go for now, if it was in average Condition.

Any other suggestions in pricing other models would be helpful.

I would also add that I have a great ar and assorted handguns and shotguns, so I am not a novice in all areas just this one. Any help would be appreciated....Lou

MAK90s are climbing in price, expect to pay at least high-400s (or more) even with the butthole stock. MAK90s were typically Norincos, while "AKS762 SP" were PolyTechs. Brand names are just symbolic...

If it has a straight-cut recvr - even better as a CHICOM butt will fit right up, if slant-cut; a bit more effort and $ to find the right buttstock to "blend in" with the slant.

Regardless - they are uber-well-made AKs. Get it if you can afford it as they will never, ever be imported again in any config.

If you don't - please post for someone else to score that bad-boi.

I think the price on this is going to be around $600 and I know that was high but being a few months from election I do not see the prices going down. Also is there a way to tell if it is a slant cut receiver or not without removing the stock?

You will at least have to remove the top-cover and look inside where the butt enters the recvr.

$600.00 'taint bad considering that is "new WASR" money in most of the USA now.
I have a mint Polytech AKS762 SP that I scored off of a fun-show walker couple years ago and I wouldn't dream of letting it go for less than a $1K, I know thats goofy, but that is how much I like it.

You will like your MAK90 too, bet on it.

I just picked up my MAK 90 from a guy I work with, sold it to me for $300. Came with the thumbhole stock, 2 5rnd and a 30rnd mag. Its milled with the slant cut and the round hole in the back.

They're going between 700- 800 on florida gun trader. As far as the slant cut if im not mistaken thats usually the milled receiver? but its only 2 screws to check and its worth it . im trying to get 800 for my straight cut receiver with reg pistold grip setup and thumbhole and 3 30 rd mags . its worth 800 to me so if I dont get it , no problem .

Don't tell the guy I bought it from haha. It shoots real smooth. The guy said its been sitting in his closet for about 12 years, that was the last time he shot it. It's only got about 250 rounds through it including what I have run through it.
