I'm a prospective buyer of either an AK47 or AK74, and so far they both have pros and cons. The main concern I have with the Tantal is the inability to find ammo locally, most of the stuff I have found is online, but it is cheap, as opposed to the 7.62x39 which is readily available EVERYWHERE but is more expensive. In fact, the money I save on buying the first case of ammo for the Tantal will make up for it's more expensive price. The second concern I am having is the overall quaity of each gun, they both feel very sturdy and I'm not EXACTLY sure of any mechanical differences, if any at all. Any other points/suggestions/etc. will be greatly appreciated.
