    I want to get a WASR or tantal but dont really see any in stock. Do you guys know anywhere they are available?

    Also what do you guys think about the 74's? They seem to be more readily available (well kind of :hsugh:) and the ammo is cheaper. I hate that wire folding stock, can you put a standard wood stock on them? Would I just have to find one meant for an AK74?

    Thanks

    No idea, dude. I'm glad I bought mine when I did.

    You can change the stock with any standard AKM stock, only furniture that is unique to tantal is the upper hand guard.

    It's plastic that's why. :mamoru:
    I got a spare upper hg and painted it black then got other black furnitures. The original lower hg really doesn't keep the heat away from you all that well. I like the kvar lower hg much better (one with heat shield).

    Who makes a good furniture set for the tanals? There is no way to go with wood all around?

    These guys can custom make it for you. But you need to put some final touches on the upper HG they make, as their CNC machines can't cut enough to make perfect tantal upper HG.

    Do you have any 5.45 stocked? I'm having trouble finding a cheap source of it. I'm talking $120-130 per 1080 tin.

    There was a $740 Wasr10 at the Ft. Worth gun show last weekend.

    That was up there with the $2200 Wilson Combat M4gery.
