    Hi everybody!

    I'm looking at purchasing an AK-74 sometime towards the end of the year (I would purchase sooner if I could), and I've been looking at these two rifles:

    Bulgarian AK-74: http://rapidfire.targetweb.net/cgi-...741618.4091*bk4AO7&p_id=02098&xm=on&ppinc=big

    Polish: http://www.atlanticfirearms.com/programming/expand.asp?Prodid=367

    Is it possible to mount wooden AK-74 furniture to the Tantal rifle? I'm leaning more towards the ORF AK because of this, as I like the look of the classic Kalashnikov.

    I already have a Century AKM, so I'm looking for something in 5.45, and I've narrowed it down to these two. Money is tight for me right now so it is likely I wont be able to get either of these until the end of the year, unfortunately. With that in mind, these two rifles are priced right around what I want to spend (no Arsenal for me), and I would really like one with the wooden furniture.

    Any thoughts/experiences on either rifle? Thanks in advance.

    The Tantal uses specific handguards.

    The buttstock will interchange with any standard AKM/AK74 buttstock.

    Atlantic is out of the AK-74's.
    In any case, I "think" Atlantic bought them from Ohio Rapid Fire.

    Here's my ORF AK-74 I bought last Fall.
    The woods been refinished, and the buttstock was replace with an Ironwood Designs:



    First class all the way.
