I'm wondering if the tantal's bayonet is different than other ak47 and ak74 bayonet's, I found deals on chinese and romanian bayo's but am not sure if they;ll work on the tantal...advise?

They do not fit the tantal. I got two yesterday. They do fit Romy G's.

I'll try the other recommendation in this thread but looking for more...

Edit: voice mail message says Brad @gunthings.com will not be able to take or ship orders until June 23rd. Other options?

I am curious to hear why the copes 2nd revision polish bayonet won't fit your tantal, it fits mine perfectly.

I don't know what you mean by 2nd revision I ordered this item:

AK-47 Polish Bayonet
[D1R8DBS]

and it does not fit the Tantal––not even close.

What I meant by 2nd revision, is that the older ak bayonets won't fit, you need the second rev for the tantal, if you search here there are threads dealing with this issue, thats' how I found the bayonet that we both have.I have that exact bayonet, and here it is on my rifle...so not sure what you're doing wrong, but it does fit...perfectly. I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything, but that bayonet DOES fit the tantal, there's no disputing it. And here are the pics to prove it..as well as the order that I made to show you that I do in fact have the same one...I wouldn't argue the fact if I wasn't right, so I'm sorry, but it does and if it won't on your rifle, then either it's not a tantal, or you're doing something wrong. Now it does take a little effort to get it to latch on to the bayo lug, but it does, then you push in the button on the bayo handle where it latched to the lug to get it off. There is also a second bayonet lug under the gas block to attach the bayo if you take off the grenade launcher muzzle brake, and the leather frog i have there is from apex, copes didn't have any at the time.

Roadie, thanks for the pics. Problem solved, I was trying to mount it back on the second bayo lug––the one under the gas block.

Edit: yeah I did take the muzzle break off but I still couldn't get it to mount on the second lug. But your way works, thanks again.

Hmm, that's strange, I thought that it would fit on that second lug as well. But it is meant to be on the muzzle brake, oh well, glad it works for you now.

...and since this bayo also fits on Romy G's, I'm glad I got 2 of them. They are very nice.

Now here's a question, my bayonet came not sharp but with a semi decent edge. If I were to sharpen it would it retain that edge? I ask because I noticed that when pulled out of and replaced back into the sheath, the edge is very close to the inside of the sheath and almost seems to ride the inside as it goes in..anyone know if that kills the sharp edge?
