Heres a Tantal I just got...havent shot it yet..has the newer SN..(Y00##) ive been assured it doesnt keyhole too

Sprayed it with Rustoleum Enamel satin black..(really wantin it to scratch to show some park! and its look beautiful...Not a big fan of spotless AK's.
Stained the butt, may try to lighten it alittle, the stain took well.
Disassembled and all, turned out pretty good i think for a rattle can... I did remove the rear sight and did not paint it...figured it;d get all gunked up.
I'll probably end up adding artificial wear to the paint anyway...

Greatly prefer it black than the plain gray it came with. Have been thinking what to paint mine with and really like how yours looks using
Rustoleum. Not sure about the weathered look, but it does add appearance of authenticity. The stained butt stock goes well with the
issued handguards.
