    Welcome to the group !!!

    These days the standard MAK-90 is selling for around $500 in good used condition (although sometimes you get lucky and find one cheaper) to $650 new (unused) in box with all the stuff.

    Base on that, since the ones with the underfolding receiver are fairly rare, I would guess a used one in very good condition around $600. I am sure there might be people to offer more, but this is my personal max value.

    They are really nice rifles if unaltered.

    The Chinese knew how to build an AK and SKS. I prefer those over the Russian and European ones.

    I had a Mak-90 underfolder once...had to sell it back
    to the pawn shop because of an evil third pin
    I learned about too late.
    Be sure and check yours.

    They have the nicest blued finish and best trigger pull out of the box of any AKs. The receivers are also thicker making them more ridgid. The Chinese are as well built as the pre-ban Yugos

    Where would the third pin be located? over the trigger? Thanks

    Thank you. I would have thought the underfolder version would have brought a little more. Maybe I'm wrong. I traded a Kimber Custom II for it, so I still made out good. The Kimber was a little banged up.

    Great photo Don, thanks!!!!

    jloneill, the underfolder version would be worth more. Usually if unmodified, the MAK-90 with an underfolder receiver would sell for about $100 more than a standard receiver MAK-90.
