Tantal kit with barrel for 350.00. Is this a good deal? should I buy it ?

I would say it is a pretty good deal. I saw these going for 369 a a few months back.

At this point yeah I'd say go for it if you're looking to buy one.

$350 is what the Romanian Gardia kits are going for now. Jump on it!

Make sure you can get a correct receiver for it and buy it if you like the condition of the kit + accessories. Once built, they are fine rifles on an accurate caliber. Don't forget to get plenty of ammo & mags.

Or you could take a chance, assume that there will be no more craziness in this market, that the ATF will have a change of heart under Barry and Joe and allow the importation of barrels again, that the Democrats won't have the votes or the inclination to pass more weapons bans, and that the supreme court will strongly interpret the 2nd Amendment as a "Right" and that even with new appointees to the court that this will remain the stance held by the court.
I somehow doubt that any, much less all, of that will happen. I say buy now and don't look like a sucker later. Worst case, you end up paying $200 too much for the gun... Best case, you get a gun that may soon be banned from ownership in the future.
Roll the dice the way that works best for you. Good Luck!

They make very nice rifles and the quality of the machine work is very good. They are fun to shot and accurate. The price is about $100 below what others seem to be asking for them. I've been watching to pick up one more. Haven't seen any near that price.

AK Forum is showing some reports of new US barrels keyholing but Polish barrels shooting very well. I'm not sure of this from personal experience, but something to check out.

Luckily this has original barrel. Gonna pick it up and a Polish underfolder Friday.Walked out of the Pasadena show 2 weekends ago with a Tantal for 625.00 drive out. Took it for a test drive and loved it.Guess I'll build the next one.

I'm pretty stubborn. When I got into this hobby a few years back, I bought more than one of pretty much everything. For every single purchase I made, I should have bought more. The economy goes up, so do gun prices, the economy starts to go sour, prices go even higher. You can't lose. This applies to mil surp stuff. I can't speak for the other markets.
