$625 for the kit, 4 mags(ugly but functional), reciever.
May have overpaid but we just want to get something built.
thats pretty steep for a kit, it better be in excellent shape.
Havent seen prices lately huh?
yeah and they aren't at 600+ for a kit yet. you can buy an assembled, ready to go Tantal for ~650
Jesus, 625 for the kit?
I think I paid 199 for my kit just under 2 years ago.
Spoon, I would rather buy a kit with an intact polish barrel than take *any* chance on a Century built Tantal even at the same price.
That also includes 4 mags and the receiver. Figure 100 bux for the receiver and these days, another 100 bux for the mags.
So 425 for the kit isn't all that bad THESE days I guess.
Yeah its not a bad price, just not a good price.
I'll take pics of the whole build.
A little much, but at least ya got one.
yeah kits are going for $400 at a minimum now so fuck it, why wait.
Mags are about $30 each so you didn't get a terrible deal.
The first one can be a beater. I was hoping to build a polish underfolder after this build but 7.62x39 is insane right now. We'll just have to build a nicer Tantal later on
i got my kit for ~330 shipped and receiver for ~85
how long ago?
a while. can't remember for sure
yeah. the good old days are over. oh well, at least the stuff is still available. 5.45 is still affordable.
whoring more pics:
as i got the kit:
OD green furniture i'm building the rifle with:
what are you doing with the stuff you're not putting on?
the folding stock assembly, front handguards and p-grip? i dunno, probably holding on to them
i wont be in CA forever and if/when i leave the state i'd like to try it as a true tantal
Good, I think they look great in original form.
Forgot the folding stock is a no no in Kalifornia.
But let me know if you ever want to sell them
yeah, SB-23 (CA assault weapon law) says the rifle must be 30 inches or longer in the shortest configuration
and dont worry, if i ever want to sell them i'll post on OT first
It's uncomfortable as fuck to hold. I'm swapping my shit out for some stuff from IronWood.
