Having never owned a 5.45, I was wondering about building one for my wife. She is petite (103lbs) 5'4. I started to build her a shorty AR but was wondering if the gun weight, felt recoil, and report would be less with a tantal.

MW, My wife is also petite and enjoys my 74 side folder. The tantal would be almost identical. You might add a buffer from Blackjack. I have a Vepr in 5.45 that has almost zero recoil due to the heavier weight of the rifle. My wife likes the Vepr if she can rest it on something and not packing it around. I have one AR15 and a couple AKs in 223. I would say the diference in recoil is very minimal. Either one should work and a buffer and muzzle brake could give minor relief. Hope this helps, CB

My wife loves her Tantal I built. Couldn't find a pic of her shooting it but you can see it on the shooting bench. She's only 5ft and 100# The AMD-63 knocks her around pretty good
