MAK-91?
« on: October 04, 2010, 07:09:53 PM »
All,

Can anyone share their knowledge on the MAK-91.

I have someone interested in a couple of surplus rifle of mine. I priced these to him at $550. He has counter-offered with a straight up trade for a Chinese AK.

At first I was not interested, figuring a post ban Chinese was not worth that kind of money. But I now have some more information from the interested party. Turns out the rifle he has is not the common MAK-90, but a model known as a MAK-91.

Problem is, I am not an AK expert by any stretch of the imagination. Two days ago, I did not the -91 existed, and now I am seriously thinking of accepting the offer. Here is the information I have gotten from the seller: MAK-91, milled receiver, bipod, purchased new in 93 or 94. Has maybe 100 rounds through it. Everything he tells me lines up with the little info I see on the WWW. A quick Gunbroker search of completed auctions did not turn up much. One currently offered at $500, that looks like it has been D&T for a scope mount. A no sell at $590, and two sells at $730 and $790 (NIB).

So, are there any AK experts in here that can give some advice on this rifle? Good deal, bad deal?

Thanks,

Rob

I suspect what he means is that it is a NHM91.  That was the longer, heavier barreled AK.  (Think RPK style).  If it has a threaded muzzle, or a muzzle extension that has been tack welded on but has threads underneath it is worth what he is asking.  If it has the muzzle where the threads have been turned down I would price it in the 400 to 450 range depending on condition.  YMMV as I am up in WA state.
My goal is to be +20/-1000 before 2010!

  I saw a MINT...looking NHM this weekend at a particularly S**** gunshow (amazing. 20 tables, old guns, two semi-autos, both RPKs).

Threaded/muzzle braked barrel,etc.   $850 price tag.

Vern,

You could be right, and this something I will have to look at when I inspect his rifle.

As I said, I'm not really an AK guy, but I would say $400-450 is the range for the run of the mill post ban Chinese AK down here in southern Illinois.

However, if this is a "MAK-91", these are a different model than the NHM-91, correct? And generally, a milled receiver gun would be more valuable than stamped?

Usually, though it's certainly of questionable utility...

I've had a milled AK and a stamped one.  While I liked the "idea" of a milled receiver the stamped one was better if I'm honest about it.  It's lighter and it's just as accurate.  In fact, my stamped AK is more accurate than the milled one I had.

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.
