>>27795679 >Is a Czechpoint VZ 58 worth buying over a Century VZ2008? To me it is and still would be. I know the real deal is a lot nicer all around, having handled both, and owning a vz58 long before vz2008s existed. I'm a buy once cry once guy. I buy what I want in the first place. I'd much rather wait till I can afford the better one, so long as we're not talking years. They're both going to serve you well(at least once you remove the slant brake from the 2008), but you'll never know the full quality of a vz58 with a vz2008, it's sandpaper action, and "just ok" fit and finish.
>>27795866 person you were replying to here, agree with >>27796107 >This is why I am asking Well, what's your yearly gun budget. If it's something closer to 2000/year, if you can afford it, get it. I think you'll be happier in the long run. It's hands down my most useful and best gun. It's the lightest, smallest with folder stock, most comfortable with fixed stock, best vehicle gun because it ejects GT ammo really gently so no worries about chipped glass, easiest gun to clean the gas system on(other areas pretty unnecessary other than boresnaking)... Still, I'd take a vz2008 over any similarly priced ak after using one. I just like stripper clips and how a vz works and feels. The vz2008 I used was as accurate as me once the crap slant brake was off, it was pulling everything way up and right IIRC while it was on. The sights went from way off, to dead on at 400 yards after the brake was removed. It was just harder to disassemble because the fit was far from perfect. I can push my pins out with my fingers easily, this one required a rubber mallet because things were squeezed a bit too tightly.
>>27796375 >It was just harder to disassemble because the fit was far from perfect. Oh, and the folder stock had some wobble and play to it. Mine's solid as a rock, basically what you'd expect from an unused one.
>>27798136 >I mean functionally it was solid but I didn't like the look of it. Yeah, holy crap those look terrible on a vz. I'd like to know who's excellent taste in guns we have to thank for those franken-stock rifles.
The VZ.58s Czechpoint imports are (I believe) made by CSA (Czech Small Arms). They're nice, but the only place they're really a good buy (outside of Europe) is in Canada, where they can be had for about $820 USD (with a chrome lined barrel). The non-chrome lined ones used to be as cheap as $660 USD.
>>27798389 I had a friend who wanted one badly after using my cz vz58. I made sure he got in on that deal when it was still there. I almost wanted to buy one myself as a pure beater gun, it was just such a steal at that price.
