Our Assessment:  The MAK-90 Sporter is a Chinese factory-built AK exported to the USA from 1990 through 1994. They were made after the 1989 gun bans took effect in order to meet the sporter classification of firearms. This is a great version of the Kalashnikov AKM & AK Type 56 combined. Many MAK 90 Sporters were made on the stamped Type-56 receivers, which are the Chinese variant of the AKM. This is a great rifle with everything you need. Use it as a shooter or keep it pristine in your gun safe. Everything is tight and functions smoothly. With a great mix of old-quality function and some new-age production, these Chinese-made AK47s in the AK world are held in high esteem and are highly sought after.  Many consider the Chinese build to be superior to the Russian-made AKs.  One thing is for sure, those who love Chinese AKs live by them as the rifle has proven itself time and time again under the notorious AK Stress Test with flying colors. Though this rifle wasn’t born in the US, it sure does scream “AMERICA”. Add this to your arsenal and enjoy the Chinese military-grade rifles made famous in the world of AK’s.  Good Luck!
