Hey guys,

I'm not all that familiar with the current lot of AK makers.  The last time I bought an AK they were still being imported from China (Norinco and Polytechs).  Soo... I find myself really wanting a high quality AK74 in 5.45x39.

Who makes the highest quality AK74?

Polish Tantal as seen as the best available, next to the Bulgarian ones.

Find somebody that has one of the SEAK-74s from Ohio Rapid Fire.

Try to find an old Robinson Arms VEPR K. They're not made anymore in 5.45, but there is no nicer AK than a VEPR. Only problem is that it doesn't have the traditional look. My next choice would be the Arsenal SLR105. Once again, it's discontinued, so you'll have to find a used one. If those can't be found, Atlantic Firearms has Polish Tantals for $599. I've got one, although mine was built by Dave Michener at Elite Firearms. It is a very nice rifle. My personal opinion is that 5.45x39 is the way to go right now. ORF has used Bulgarian mags for $4 and S.O.G. has Bulgarian surplus ammo at $118 per 1080 rounds. I'm hording the shit out of both.

Thanks guys, right now I'm looking for that Tantal.  

Does anyone know where I might find a NIB one for sale?  Are they assembled by various people/companies or is there one in particular I should be on the lookout for?
