Oh boy! Going to a gun show tomorrow!

I'm looking to pick up a Polish Tantal AK-74 or a Bulgarian AK-74 from Century Arms International. I've read that they are kinda hit and miss though (sometimes something is wrong with the barrel causing the bullet to keyhole when entering the target which shouldn not happen!) The Avtomat Kalashnikov 74 was developed in the 1970's in response to the 5.56x45mm round. The Soviets pretty much saw the 5.56 and went "ooo ahhh" and made this round and updated some AKM's and then began to produce the AK-74 when they found out the 5.45 round was drastically more accurate than the 7.62x39mm round of old. If I find a good deal on a Yugoslavian SKS I might just get one of those and some ammo instead. I love gun shows but now there's always some "COWADUTY" kids there picking firearms up and having a photo op looking all cool with their "M21 EBR" jeeeeze

  7. I want a real Soviet weapon one of these days.
    For now my collection is of authentic Soviet medals.

    I don't have enough money to buy a Order of Lenin though.

  11. for some reason when I read this I was reminded of the "ugly". The scene where he just takes pieces from gun and makes his own since the rest is crap from the good the bad the ugly. But good article! (and I'm not calling ugly :D)

  19. How much do these go for at a gun show? I've always been interested in firearms but never put any effort into obtaining one.

  20. Well I know you can get the bulgarian 74 at centerfiresystems.com for $400. The Polish Tantal goes for around $500 on gunbroker. A Yugo SKS, prolly $300. You might end up paying more or less depending on the location of the show.
