They aren't too bad. Like JeepFan said, they are labor intensive. The tantal set was my first ever set and first ever working with wood so it could have been better. The upper tantal handguard is different than any other AK so it was a little more involved to make. My other sets I made were a lot cleaner looking.looks great.. how difficult was the handguards
I am pretty sure I know what you are talking about but how about some info on the gunstock carver? Details, price etc.I bought a gunstock carver on ebay a while back, its a ton of fun, you can bondo things up to make custom stocks or glue broken ones back to use as patterns. I even have copied antique hand carved chair legs in it. If your really serious, its worth the money and you can find many other uses for it, I even carved a prop with it but I had to do half at a time.
