Now, with the old stock out I discovered that the plate that goes under the pistol grip is no longer needed and can't be used. This plate provided the spring tension required for the old side folder and also helped support the whole thing.

What I want to know is...Is the rear tang short machine screw the only hardware you reinstalled? Or, did you install a new tang screw for the front of the rear tang (the one under the recoil spring)?

If you did place a screw in the front of the rear tang what size & type was it? The whole thing is tight but is the small original machine screw all that is needed?
Thanks.


Sorry for the no-reply, but thanks for the praise!

I only used the one screw, just use some loctite.
Nice shooting rifles with the beryl goodies.

When I first got my Tantal.


Then I got a Bulgarian stock set from APEX. Realized that I really didnt like it because of the bakelite upper. I wasnt going to spend the kind of money IWD wants for an upper.


How it is right now but I still want to get a Bulgarian/K-var black ak74 lower hand guard and buttstock. But I had this lower and buttstock at home already so they will work for now

My CIA tantal

After grinding down the hammer a little bit the rifle worked flawlessly, and I couldn't be happier with the weapon.
Other than the cheap plastic Tapco hand guard that doesn't even have a heat shield the gun is very solid.

I recently got an Interarms Tantal, that I've already mostly converted to a Beryl lookalike.



And how it looks now. I'm just missing the rail, because I can't find a DPH Arms Beryl rail in stock anywhere right now.

First time owner of an AK - just picked up this sweet looking Tantal folder from Century Arms today. Been reading a little bit
about these rifles and "key-holing" - everything says get one with a "Y" in the serial number and you are
okay. What about a "Z" in the serial number? Also on the side before the serial number there is 1994 stamped
on it - not sure the significance of that either - is this gun that old? anybody have any ideas? Looking fwd running some
rounds in it later this weekend.

Chill with the caps.
That lower handguard is from a Beryl and yes, they can take standard AK lower handguards.

It kind of fits. The barrel extends pretty far into the middle of the brake, which will decrease its effectiveness. I also had to cut my own detent pin slot in the brake.

Yeah, and how does that work with the unthreaded portion protruding into the insides of the Flash hider?
Last I checked, there was about an inch of non-threaded barrel after the threads..

Or did you cut your barrel down and recrown?
