Default Which czech Sa vz. 58 rifle to buy?

I can't decide which rifle to buy - Sa vz. 58 Hi-cap Sporter or Sa vz. 58 Military version. I've found them there: http://www.czechpoint-usa.com/products/vz-58-rifles/
Any experience? Any advice?
Thx
Rado

VZ 58's are uber cool, but (and it is one BIG BUT) they share no parts with AK's or SKS's. Mags are different than AK's.

IMHO one should have a stock of AK's before even considering an oddball like a Vz.

I had a Vz58V (side folder) for a time on a job, it was a super piece of kit, and I liked it a little better than the AKM, but Robo's right it shares no magazines or anything else with the AKM, they only share similarity in looks.

You will not be disapointed in one if they are similiar to the military one's. We recovered several of them in NI as I remember which is where I first saw one.......
