Which AK-pattern, folding stock, 5.45x39 rifle?

    I want to buy a new rifle that meets the following criteria:

    1. AK-pattern
    2. Folding stock
    3. Chambered in 5.45x39

    I have a 7.62x39 AK and love it but don't know much about the 5.45x39 side of the platform. So far all I've been able to find are Century Tantals, Interarms Tantals and the Arsenal SGLs. The Arsenals are way overpriced, and I've heard too many bad things about Century's rifles and customer service, so now I'm leaning toward the Interarms Tantal.

    Are there any other rifles that meet my criteria that I haven't come across?

    Also, what parts aren't interchangeable between regular AK74s and Tantals? I don't want to buy something that's going to be hard to find parts for.

    "The Arsenals are way overpriced,"

    I don't know by what standard you would call them over priced but for what you get i consider them a great value. I've been happy with all of mine.

    Tantal. Classic Arms, I think I paid around 289 for it a month ago. It is Polish as I recall.
