is this a custom build or a modified variant of some kind?the hand guard caught my eye right away,then i noticed the selector switch,and the obvious difference in receiver style.it also appears to have a totally different magazine.is this a larger than 7.62x39 chambering of the ak?

I've heard from some that the Czech variant is an improvement over the AK. I don't have any experience myself. But some articles I read seem to back it up. I believe I read somewhere that the Soviets didn't like that too much and tried to halt the Czech production.

It is a HUGE Improvement of the AK47.

The Czech Military Pissed off the USSR because they did not adopt the AK47 but instead designed their own Variant. It is more accurate in MilSPEC out of the box configuration and dependable. The civilian version is stuck with a single stack magazine which can be converted. The trigger/striker fire control makes for a much nicer trigger over all and also is part of the reason for the accuracy improvement. CZ has gone on to build even more Modern Assault Rifles and Sub Guns which push the envelope for outfitting the SECOP's Solider.

the Bren 800 series assault rifles are some of the best on the market and one day I do hope they will allow the Semi Autos to be imported. They can shoot the Russian and Nato rounds depending on how you configure it.

the Scorpion EVO is a top contended for small caliber Sub Gun in anyones book, again import restrictions keep these out of the hands of all but the most wealthy collectors at this time.

If you come across a CZ VZ58 for $600.00 or under I would snatch it up (A real CZ VZ, not a CAI or other off brand parts gun)....

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!

I'm a fan of the vz, but as ISD said be careful of which one you buy. Another receiver maker to watch for we're the ORF receivers, there were problems with them that Todd was never able to fix. He pass away before he could figure out what was wrong.
