    This is a really neat rifle and has been 100% reliable. It is a Century made rifle, but this is easily among the best products they've come out with. It's accurate, lightweight, handy, and has a lot of cool factor as well. Comes with two mags, sling, mag pouch, cleaning kit, and manual. $410, which is a steal. No trades, other than I'd consider a Tantal AK-74.

    Location=Hillsboro. For some reason I always forget that part. In any case, it's already SPF.

    Do those rifles take regular AK mags and if not can they with modification or does it go against parts count?

    No parts are interchangeable at all between the Vz 58 and an AK pattern. They are totally different rifles. The Vz 58 is based on the German STG44. The only thing the Vz and AK have in common is caliber (Soviet mandate at the time was that all rifles developed by Warsaw pact countries were to be in 7.62x39). If it doesn’t click that they’re different mechanically, think of an FAL and an AR10. They’re the same only in that they’re chambered for the same caliber and that’s where similarities end.

    The Vz 58 is a fantastic rifle and has actually displaced the AK as my favorite 7.62x39. You can get spare parts and mags from czechpoint-usa.com for very reasonable prices.
