What can you all tell me about this model? Good, bad, how it compares to other AK type rifles.

Yep ,long barrel, thumbhole stock with actually pretty nice wood. Not mine unfortunatly, friend of mine here in Colorado just traded for it and I thought it was an unusual configureation.
Called "sporting"...... sporter...
A sporter AK by any other name would still stink like ......

Probably no opportunity to shoot it before I leave Colorado but did dry-fire the trigger once and it felt pretty clean. He did a staight up trade for a Sig 2022 40S&W so from a value stand point he did well.
typical of Norinco or just a rare version?
Note that the US ban and parts quota on some types of firearms and kits imported really affects only the importation process, not how you fix it up or where the parts you use came from once you take possession.
It falls under 922r compliance for ownership even after import which requires that the rifle must have a certain number/percentage of U.S. made parts to be legal. In the case of the AK clones it is 5. 6 if you have a threaded muzzle. The fire control group counts as 3, gas piston is 1 and most people add a U.S. made pistol grip for the 5th. You can also get a nice set of U.S. made furniture to bring it up to 6 parts if you want to thread the barrel and add a muzzle device.
Be cautious if you plan to thread the barrel on a MAK90. Some of the early imports had threaded barrels with muzzle nuts welded on over the threads but a lot of the later models had the threads turned off with a lathe and the muzzle nut was pressed on. Most of those barrels are too thin to be threaded.
