    Lightbulb AOA has matching WZ88 kits

    Saw this on facebook. Seems like a good price considering non matching ones are around the same price. I know AK builder has the chromed lined barrels too. I read the the Polish MOD stopped selling weapons overseas as of just recently. Has anyone else heard that rumor??

    If I had to go to a planet..an unknown planet, and I was allowed to take one firearm, it would be an AK-47.

    The kits Robert is selling are parts matching, come with the bipod, stripper clips, sling and a mag.

    What's up with the rear stub? It's not original to the kit. There's no selector hole.

    Looks like it's still there, just torched. Looks like you can make out the letters if the pic were a little clearer.

    Where'd you read that? Did one of the guys selling kits say it?

    Frankly, I'm surprised there are still any Tantals left to be sold and I suppose this could easily be the last we see, but if I ever heard a vendor say "yeah, plenty more where this came from" instead of "Last Chance! Buy Now!" I would faint.

    I see it now. That poor thing is torched worse than mine was. Wouldn't want us to be able to see those markings we might get all excited and revolt. I had a hard time stopping myself when my stub had most of the markings.

    I've been torn on these tantal kits. The Robert bowman ones especially. One part of my says "these are nice numbers matching kits with accessories for super cheap!" But the other part tells me "hey dumbass, you sold your tantals because you hated them!"

    So, do I buy or not? Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know your guys answer but I have issues buying a kit that I won't build.

    My love for AKs has me torn.

    Just get one and hang it on the wall. I'm tempted to get another here soon because mine doesn't match and I've never been satisfied with the way it came out after I had to redo the selector markings. Plus, I'm having a hell of a time getting the fcg group to cooperate in it. I've even been messing with the original thinking it would help, but it's really rough. I'm thinking it may be an issue with my receiver at this point.

    I read it on the Robert Bowman posting. Just seeing if any other sources have heard that or isolated rumor?? I really want to get one, I don't have a Tantal and love all my 74's!!

    Guys this isn't an isolated rumor, there are others that buy over seas that say the guns are drying up in Poland. Especially the 7.62x39
