    After all the talk, I decided to purchase the Polish Tantal today from JG. Couldn't resist the price.
    I'll post pictures and range results after I get to check it out!

    Any '74 mags will work. You should have picked up some of those Bulgarian polymer mags at JG or even some steel Tantals. Last time I bought some they were ~$17 and I have seen the Bakelites going for at least twice that.

    RGUNS is another source for mags.

    They seem to be out! Let's hope your rifle is good to go and no keyhole probs.

    GC thanks.
    Im feeling pretty confident. The sales rep told me when I asked about the key holing it was the barrel issue you hear people talking about. He said this problem was fixed
    . He also assured me thay if there's an issue, I have 30 days to send it back. From everything I've read, if your tantal doesn't suffer from one of these main issues, then its a GREAT rifle. Ill let you guys know more!

    There are no Bakelite AK74 magazines. While there are several non-metal bodied magazines that work with a 5.45 rifle none of them are actually made of Bakelite.



    Impact has steel magazines for your rifle at the price of $20.

    Check the EE over on arfcom for "bakelite" mags, akfiles has a good market as well.

    good for you. I picked up a SAR2 a few weeks ago and I could not be happeir. NO RECOIL... None. And that mech throws the brass about 20ft away. Ha... good accuracy so far, but really was just function testing with Wolf Ammo. I picked up 2000rd of suplus also for storage.
    Mine came with an ultimak rail on it and this gun is screaming for Aimpoint T1 Micro or a Burris Fast Fire on that forward rail.

    I am happy... I hope you will be also. I look forward to hearing your review and results.
