View Full Version : Which to build? Tantal or Bulgarian 74 side folder
07-09-2005, 02:49 AM
I am going to have one or the other built up by Red Jacket Firearms. Is there an advantage to having a Tantal or Bulgarian 74 folder built? I like the looks of the Bulgarian 74 better but the Tantal seems to be rare.
That about sums it up, even though a Tantal is rarer the Bulgarian folder looks like how an AK should and has a strong following, so I doubt one will be worth much more than the other. With an uncertain kit availability future why not buy both kits and just have one built for now or even hold off building both until you can afford it. A year from now I am certain a Tantal will be impossible to find and if the barrel ban is true a Bulgy kit will be $$$$.

If it's either or, I would go with the tantal. Reason being you could scrounge parts to do a side folder later. Or do both. Buy a russian side folder from K-var and install it on your tantal kit. Personaly I MUCH prefer the AKS side folder the tantal east german style but I like originality.
