I've been thinking about purchasing one of the Czech VZ-58 rifles and was wondering if any of you guys have had any experiences with them? Fit/function, reliability, etc.? I figure now is the time as I'm sure in coming years they will go up in price (i.e.- like the Yugo AKs). Any info is appreciated!

I've been considering one myself. It's an interesting design. I think if I buy one, I'm going to go with a fixed stock model. I'd like to hear some feedback too.

I have one. D-Tek manufacture is the one to get.
Get a folder and add a stock later. It s just one pan head screw.
Also it is difficult to match the colors F Stock to Receiver.

One thing that does suck is the PLASTIC :shock: trigger.
You can get a milled after matket one.

The fit and finish on these is pretty darn good.
And it is a dream to shoot.

I have one as well and they are one of the most under-rated rifles out there. It's head and shoulders above any military style rifle in it's price range as far as I'm concerned.

I have a CZ 858 Tactical 2. Up here in Canada, along with other VZ58 style semis, they are getting popular. Milled receiver, 18 or 19" barrel. Shoots beter than most sks' will. $695 new up here with 4 mags, mag pouch, sling bayo, and I think a cleaning kit. The folder stock bites the cheek I find, but the wood one is comfy. Wood stock is a plastic impregnated particle board we Canucks call "beaver barf". If you want real wood for it try Ironwood for the pieces. I never heard of a plastic trigger for a vz58.
