    Up for sale is my VZ 2008 (vz58), Czechoslovakia's answer to the AK47. $675

    -Less than 120 rounds fired through it
    - milled receiver
    - 7.62x39 caliber
    - comes with bayonet and 5 30 round magazines (not pictured)

    Advantages of Sa vz. 58 over AK47 rifles (cited from Richard Rich Chris)
    - All vz. 58 rifles possess a milled receiver; the vast majority of AK47s utilize stamped sheet metal receivers and are not as rigid as the vz.58 receiver.
    - Even with the milled receiver it is almost one pound lighter than a stamped AK47.
    - The bolt of the vz. 58 stays open after the last round in the magazine has been fired – the shooter immediately knows the firearm is empty and allows for quicker reloads.
    - The vz. 58 can be reloaded with stripper clips while the magazine is inserted in the rifle.
    - The vz. 58 has a more natural point of aim and is faster handling.
    - The safety is more ergonomic making a faster first shot possible with the vz. 58. Unlike the AK safety, the vz. 58 safety can be operated by just a forefinger with the hand remaining on the pistol grip.
    - vz.58 has no need for an ejection port dust cover as the receiver is completely enclosed. A cover (on the safety lever) must be used on the AK47 to prevent debris from entering the receiver through the reciprocating charging handle slot.
    - The ejection port is HUGE. There is no chance of an empty case getting stuck in the action of the vz. 58.
    - The vz. 58 gas piston can be removed or exchanged without tools.
    - The alloy magazine of the vz. 58 is half the weight of the steel AK47 magazine.
    - The vz. 58 is striker fired unlike the hammer fired AK47. This reduces the number of parts and possible points of failure.
