    Question Mitchell Arms M-90 Yugo questions

    Been a while since I have been here, But I have a question on a Yugo M-90 I saw today for sale that I want to pick up.

    Imported by Mitchell arms marked M-90 stamped receiver, 7.62x39, But it has a plastic (yes plastic) thumbhole stock that looks like a blond laminate wood. It has a 20in finned barrel, detent for muzzle nut won't move but nut moves a little. has a removable bi-pod and 1 mag. Darn thing is heavy!

    I'm not up on my yugo's because you never see the originals.

    Now the questions

    1. Has anybody seen this variant of the M-90, I found a couple pictures on the web but not many.

    2. Looking close at it to convert it over to a regular stock the rear trunnion might have to be changed and and I am not sure about the nut for the pistol grip because I don't know if the permanently attached nut is at the right angle. Has anybody done this conversion and is there a trunnion that might work if it needs to be changed because the 2 rivets for the trunnion are vertical not horizontal or angled like on most of the AK's I have seen.

    3. What do you think it's worth. Blue book says it was imported 1991-1992 only

    4. Anybody know where to get a good US made yugo buttstock and pistol grip that looks like the original teak wood (or whatever they used)

    I remember those.


    The last one I saw for sale here in MI was at a fun show about 4 years ago or so and the guy was asking $700 if I remember correctly.

    Damn that stock is UGLY!!
    I am like water. I follow the path of least resistance
    but you cannot compress me.

    The most precious thing a man can give to another is time,
    as of it, we have so little.

    They were boxed with the original stock. One of the best AK varients made. If you can't get the original stock I'd go Ironwood... IMO anything much under a grand you did really good.

    after tax was 850 a little pricey for me at the time, but with only 560 imported I think it was a steal to have an orginal. Not to mention I doubt it has had more then a few boxes of shells thru it. She is CLEAN, almost like new.

    Working on a stock set hope to have her looking like she should soon.

    850? You stole that! That is a rare Yugo RPK.

    Is it just an M72 kit that Mitchell labels as an M90??

    No, it is a factory rifle from the 1980s. Built completely at Zavasta...

    BRKDNC, is that a YUGO drum? If so you have the rarest of the AK drums! I've been looking for one of those for 10 years. Never mind I looked again and it is Chinese pattern.
