The gun dealer sells Frank a Chinese Norinco MAK-90 Kalashnikov variant with a stamped receiver that was apparently converted to fire in fully automatic mode, as the MAK-90 was a semi-automatic civilian sporting rifle. The thumbhole stock was replaced by an aftermarket pistol grip (of the original AK-pattern) and to the rear tang was attached a wooden block (with ring for gun belt). One can still see the 'ground down' bottom of the front sight, which was mandated by ATF when it approved the MAK-90 for import. Frank and Roxy use this during the finale. It is worth noting that, it seems, two different rifles in the same configuration were used, since they are slightly different from each other.

For comparision: Norinco Type 56-1 (under-folding stock variant) - 7.62x39mm

The gun dealer quotes a great man
, "AK-47, when you absolutely, positively have to waste every single muthafucka in the room, accept no substitutes."
This appears to be an another rifle - note that the rear block is a more short black plastic (or has been painted black), and the more scratched foregrip.
Frank shoots one of the "American Superstarz" judges. He holds the rifle in an interesting fashion.
