    can't find anyhting about this gun,
    the ak74 " s " or aks 74 or aks74 or aks-74 or ak 74 s model with the folding stock seems to be pretty hard to get at these days. I'm uneasy about the current economical turmoil in N. America now and I'm planning to move to S. America as soon as i can. I need a great gun for grab-and go, jungle gun survivalist-oriented situations. I decided on the ak platform a while ago, then I narrowed my search down to the improved 74 model, then i noticed the aks-74
    with the folding skeletonized metal stock. This seems to me like a great idea for close-quarters home defense situations, and it significantly reduces the strain of having to lug one around with u thru the heavy brush in Argentina.

    Does anyone know where i could buy oone of these puppies ? Who's the most reliable manufacturer ( for my money ) of ak-74's ? I'm not looking for a eddie brown or wilson hand-made custom 1911 caliber deal here, just a reliable gun from a manufacturer with integrity i can count on, so no el cheapo child soldier disposables.

    thank you for schooling me in the ways of the gun

    i repay you with my smiles :) :)

    don't cry for me, argentina.

    Argentina requires me to be 3 years older to purchase a " military " rifle, I know the polish tantal is a folding-stock ak74 in semi-auto, looks like a very good gun.
    of course it's probably like Canada where semi-auto versions of auto weapons are banned because the look similar KL

    forget alex jones, I believe in reality. Yes, I support Ron Paul, :cool: he predicted everything that happened to our economy years before it was in the mainstream media, is that a problem ?
    ... take your politics to the political sector of these boards. :cool:

    Where would you go if all the experts were telling you to get out of North america ? I want security, and that means being able to defend myself from 50 yd's away in any conditions.

    true, which is why the collapse is going to be so very painful.
    anyways, does anyone have experience with these folding ak's ??

    personally not a fan of the wire folding stock i do like the polish tantal ak-74 which i believe is the one you are talking about. I personally like the bulgarian ak-74 pic attached. as far as north america thing got to defend your land I know oregon is easily defendable. Il die in these forest if it gets bad enough to flee the country. thats a sign that we should be fighting harder than ever to save it

    I know this thread is kinda dated, but I'd just like to correct you.

    Semi-auto military style rifles are not banned in Canada, at all.
    Their listed as "restricted" which just means you have to upgrade your PAL. (assuming you have one to begin with)
