View Full Version : Mitchell Arms M-90 Yugo questions

12-27-2011, 06:31 PM
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.

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.

Nice Gun!!!!
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.
