They sold me my Vz 58... Great people to work with, also helps they are my local shop.

While I'd rather have an AKM rather than a Vz 58, I'd rather have that vs nothing in M43 at all. That's why I won't be selling it...

Its worth the drive and its a cash and carry gun, they are about an hour and 10 from me and I make it up there every once in a while.

Is a bummer if you are doing a 77R but VZs don't require them.

I think the answer here is simple get your VZ. Save some bucks get the SLR106 its not a 104 but they are still plentiful and reasonably priced at +/- $1000

I own a Vz58 and an Arsenal SLR104FR. I like both of them, but for different reasons. Most of my friends seem to think the Vz58 is the cooler gun. It gets a lot of attention at the range.

Did you leave yours in beaverbarf or update it?

My handguard is nice but stupid heavy... Thinking of getting the polymer one the Czechs themselves use.
