    Ok so now I've seen several pics of Iraqi soldiers packing Tantals, where the hell did they get them? I know we bought them a shitload of Romy AK's recently I hadn't heard anything about any Tantals, anyone know if they are 5.56 or 5.45? I hope there 5.56. If these motherfuckers start buying up all the 5.45 milsurp ill be pissed :mad:

    Tantal = WZ88, WZ89 = Polish AK74
    We bought them a shitload of new romanian AK47's with in the last year or two, I'm just wondering where they got the Tantal's from and what caliber they're using. They have to be new I'm pretty sure Saddam didn't havem.

    They look like Tantals. I'm not positive but I think Tantals are only 5.45 too. Tantals usually have the synthetic upper handguard that doesn't match the lower. Not sure of too many other 5.45 with that style or wire folder stock.
