    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.

    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 :wiggle:

    It's uncomfortable as fuck to hold. I'm swapping my shit out for some stuff from IronWood.
