Do former MAK90 owners count?

Nope. I don't own one. I own TWO. :evil:

I have a SAR-1. The only mod I've done to it was to remove some metal from the back of the hammer to fix the trigger slap.

I also have a Saiga Sporter that was converted by Hesse to take standard cap magazines, and which looks like an AK-103.

AKs are great!

I have a Maadi MSR

January 4, 2003, 12:00 AM
SAR 1 and 2. An RPK style is in my future....

January 4, 2003, 12:34 AM
Yep, got the SAR-1 and really like the way it shoots. Toyed with the idea of putting a scope on it, but it just shoots too clean with iron sights out to the 100-150yd range. Considering adding an SKS to my collection.

SAR1 so far. IMI Galil in the future.

Good Shooting

I have had a SAR 1 for a couple years now. Real tension reliever when I have had a bad day at work to go to the range an cut loose.

January 4, 2003, 01:21 AM
Yup :cool:

Here's mine. (Photo by Oleg)

January 4, 2003, 01:35 AM
Currently, I only own one.. A Mitchell Arms AK-22, sold the others..

But,I'm about to snag a VEPR soon..

Tamara's AKM looks like a gun that would make even Osama jealous..:D :neener: :D

January 4, 2003, 01:43 AM
Hey, I bought it specifically because it had every single evil feature mentioned in the AW ban. :D

January 4, 2003, 02:08 AM
That sounds like something that I would do..:D LOL :D

January 4, 2003, 02:15 AM
SAR-1 here.

And its Kobra sight makes it even better.:D :D :D

January 4, 2003, 02:44 AM
Norinco 84S-1 which may be traded shortly. Not even the coolness factor has enamored me to the .223 :D

January 4, 2003, 03:01 AM
well just a Norinco and a Sar-2 is all here

January 4, 2003, 04:00 AM
Here's my preban PolyTech, SAR-1 with US furniture, and MAK-90 project gun that is currently a work in progress....

January 4, 2003, 04:11 AM
I got one Chinese and one Bulgarian. Both are in butthole configuration. I'm saving up to make them legal to wear a pistol grip though. :)

January 4, 2003, 04:53 AM
Butthole configuration.

I am going to a gunshow in the morning and if I don't find a deal there, I will order a SAR-1 when I get back online.

January 4, 2003, 05:08 AM
I've had a couple MAK90s, and I currently have both a SAR1 and 2. Pic:

I love AKs...

January 4, 2003, 06:26 AM
I have one of the politically correct FEG SA2000M rifles. Hungarian stamped receiver. Bought it new for $190. Chose it over a SKS. Can't get rid of it because of the excellent accuracy it has. I may send it to Krebs for the standard cap convewrsion.

The one I have looks like the middle AK agony posted. :)

Gotta love them AK's.

SAR-1 with Kobra.

This one has a straight front post.

And comes with FREE finger-stinging trigger slap! (Someday I'll fix it)


January 4, 2003, 11:22 AM
I've got a Hungarian SA-85M. Apologies in advance for the picture quality and background. Pictured as purchased with Leapers optic, sling, and (Fiberforce? Dragunov? No idea what it is) aftermarket stock.


January 4, 2003, 11:29 AM
Just got a WASR-10 HiCap for Christmas. The best part was the look on Nana's face when I unwrapped it. :)

January 4, 2003, 12:50 PM
Vepr II K in 7.62x39, modified by Krebs Custom. I'm now in the middle of a FAL fetish.

January 4, 2003, 01:01 PM
This one's at home, BUlgarian SLR-95 with K-VAR furniture and ACE AR-15 pistol grip:

The other one's a preban underfolder like Tamara's above, but it, and the Krinkov kit, are off somewhere getting NFA'd. :D

January 4, 2003, 01:40 PM
Onlyone so far. But there will be more!

Currently: SAR-1, Saiga .223
Previously: MAK-90
To be acquired: Saiga .308, SAR-2

I wonder if I'm the only person in the world who wants a Saiga in .50 AE.

January 4, 2003, 04:42 PM
One here for the time being. SAR-1 redone by AK-USA.

January 4, 2003, 10:26 PM
Currently I own nine of those evil commie rifles! and I love each and every one of them two sets of sar's russian, chinese, bulgarian underfolder, and i am waiting for my class three krinkov paper work to go through.:neener:

January 5, 2003, 12:23 AM
1 Sar-1 and 1 Hungarian SA-85M.

January 5, 2003, 12:38 AM
Polytech Legend AK-47 Underfolder.

SAR-3. Fun shooter.

January 5, 2003, 02:30 AM
SAR1 ..... but with Mac thumbhole stock added!!

I know .... should be other way about but ... needed to do that to get a decent sight pic!! Shoots well anyways . all that matters to me!

January 5, 2003, 03:21 AM
2 SKS', love 'em....'cept today the front sight snagged on the bungee cord which was holding it on the front rack of my quad, creating a cluster$#@& which kept me from whacking at least 3 wolves that I coulda thrown rocks at.....DOH!

January 5, 2003, 03:36 AM
Someone once told me that AK's and SKS's have a life expectency of only 5,000 rounds, is this true? Serious question, no flames please.

January 5, 2003, 03:39 AM
5,000???????? More than hard to believe!

I reckon my ole SKS before I got it probably had incalculable rounds thru it and AK? .. well, unless something breaks, I'd say 50,000 might be nearer a problem ..... !!

Basically, even if barrel degrading, they should just keep on truckin!!:)

January 5, 2003, 03:53 AM
Thank you for the reply.

January 5, 2003, 05:26 PM
5000 rounds through a chrome lined AK bore is more like a break in period. :)

January 5, 2003, 10:59 PM
1-Sar1 1-Sks, and a Sam7 and Ak-103k on the way.

January 5, 2003, 11:56 PM

January 6, 2003, 12:21 AM
Pre-ban Norinco, SAR-1 and Saiga 308-1

January 6, 2003, 02:14 AM
Right now I have one and I am working on getting more. AK's rock!

A longtime friend swears by them. I don't think he's ever seen an AK that he couldn't love.


[edit: one refers to a SAR-1]

January 6, 2003, 02:46 AM
I have 3 currently (2 AKUSA guns, 1 Arsenal Classic), going to have a 5.45 built at some point.......never enough.

January 6, 2003, 03:08 AM
I only have one AK. My SKS Para. takes AK mags...does that sorta count too?

January 6, 2003, 03:43 AM
Got five AK's - 4 Romanians and a Maadi - all stock though, but a Red Star trigger should be coming soon.

The picture is pre red dot and brake.

I hope to get a Sar 3 sometime this summer.

January 6, 2003, 11:23 PM
Got one of 'em AK 47, owned it since '96. My 2nd rifle back then.

January 7, 2003, 03:18 PM
I used to own a MAK-90, and she was a beut too...nice smooth trigger, best I'd ever felt on an AK clone...sold her to pay rent :(

January 7, 2003, 07:54 PM
I have an MAK-90.
