    there nice

    the original guns are very high quilty but all the ones you will find from century and such are built from kits so you can get a good or a bad one. My buddy has one with the thumb hole stock and its nice its lighter then my AK and is a fun gun. Good luck finding one for a good price tho lol.
    On a side note why did you hate your mak90?

    Im only interested in the cz version cuz im from czech descent.

    I didnt like it cuz it pinched my trigger finger and had a very unpleasent thumbhole stock

    ya the stocks are ugly but that was for importation reasons you could change that out

    You do know that VZ-58 & AK47 mags, parts, etc... don't interchange with each other.
    It fires the same 7.62x39 round but that is about the only thing they have in common.
    Just thought you would want to know.;)

    Three years ago I nabbed a MAK-90 in a New Orleans pawnshop for $99.00. The Vietnamese shop owner said that it had been buried in the back of the store for years and that was the price that had been on it ever since. It was rusty and had a thumbhole stock but both were easy fixes once I handed over the cash and got it home. I also got a broken Taurus .38 Special from him for $15.00 and sent it off to Taurus for their free warranty repair. Taurus didn't carry that model any more so they exchanged it a new one that was comparable for just a small fee.

    I loves me my pawnshops. :)
