That's a decent deal on surplus in this market. I'd shoot that for the price, just remember to clean your gun after every range trip especially if you live in a humid place. Otherwise, I've had no problems with any of the commercial 5.45 I've shot. It's mostly been an assortment of Barnaul-produced stuff and Golden Tiger. Never tried the Tula.

TulAmmo is okay just seems a little dirtier than other ammo but you have an AK so that's not much of a consideration.

I have had very good luck with Silver Bear 5.45x39.

I'll have to get around to taking some pics of the two I just picked up. One is a 105a1 (no rail) and the other is a 105a1r. Both are unfired and immaculate. Can't believe I had the opportunity to buy both at the same time.

I'll try to get them later tonight. What can I say, I'm a sucker for the AK74 and 5.45.

I picked up mine yesterday. Unfired. Beautiful rifle. Perfect condition. I also picked up 1080 rounds of Bulgarian surplus ammo. I am planning shooting a few rounds through it today and I will get some pics.

I was unable to go to a real range to shoot, but I was able to fire a mag through it to make sure it runs. I fired 30 rounds of TulAmmo. No issues. Can’t wait to actually shoot at targets now.

MP or APEX. Bulgy can be a little tough if you want it all to match. The lower can be darker along with the upper. I found my set on GB and it was all the lighter wood. Thats what I wanted so I could refinish it the same color. Mine's similar to Tankboy's.

Files marketplace is where I got this set. I forgot his name, but occasionally he'll post up a number of bulgarian ak74 stock sets for like 35 dollars a pop. I specifically asked if he had any that mostly matched and was able to snag that. Goodluck!

I bought 2 of the 105R ban models back in 2004. one I quickly turned it into a krinkov with a KVAR Bulgy kit. The other I de-banned it and still have it. The Krinkov gets the most mileage, 13 years ands thousands of rounds, still my favorite gun I have.
