If I am not mistaken.. its pre 94 era... like late 80's, early 90's. Could be wrong.. but polytech & others were popular then, as was the "american arms" imports of guns like the SPAS and Specter

Most were pre-1989. Many Mitchell Arms AK's were caught in customs prior to the assault weapons ban. They had to have their configuration changed to meet the new Assault Weapons Ban and had their receiver electro penciled scratched to denote M-90 for '1990'. A few M90's escaped unmolested.
