Detailed Review

The CZ VZ 58 is a selective fire, gas-operated rifle that was developed in the Czech Republic during the late 1950s. It was designed to replace the aging Soviet-designed AK-47 rifle that was widely used by the Czechoslovak Army at the time.

The VZ 58 was first introduced in 1959 and quickly became popular due to its lightweight design, reliability, and accuracy. It saw widespread use not only in the Czechoslovak Army but also in other countries such as Egypt, Libya, and Syria.

The rifle features a unique takedown mechanism that allows for easy disassembly and maintenance. Its gas piston system is located above the barrel, which helps to reduce recoil and increase accuracy. The VZ 58 also has a safety catch that can be easily manipulated with the shooter's trigger finger, allowing for quick and easy access.

The VZ 58 uses a proprietary 7.62x39mm cartridge, which is similar to the one used by the AK-47. It has a 30-round magazine capacity and an effective range of up to 400 meters. The rifle's iron sights are adjustable for both windage and elevation.

Over the years, several variants of the VZ 58 have been produced. These include the VZ 58P (which features a fixed wooden stock), the VZ 58V (which has a folding metal stock), and the VZ 58 Compact (which has a shorter barrel and overall length).

The VZ 58 has been praised for its reliability and accuracy, making it a popular choice among military and law enforcement personnel. It has also gained a following in the civilian market, particularly in countries where gun ownership is legal.

In conclusion, the CZ VZ 58 is a well-designed and reliable rifle that has served its users well for over six decades. Its lightweight design, accurate performance, and easy maintenance make it a popular choice for military, law enforcement, and civilian use.

The vz-58 I have was one of the last from CZ-USA, but they are still being brought in today by CzechpointUSA. The rifle is lighter than an AK by a full pound, more accurate than the three AKM clones I have owned over the years, east all factory and reload

Took to range yesterday and can say I am impressed. While not as accurate as my AR's, it shoots a far more, at least at close range, lethal thirty caliber round. It is far cheaper to shoot as well, with cheap Wolf ammo. Very well made, NOT a POS AK, total
