I was going to get one, but they were sold out everywhere, so I bought the Saiga instead. Heard a lot of good about those VZs, being more accurate than the average AKs and easier to handle.

EDIT: Then again, the VZ isn't an AK per se, they just look the same.

More accurate, lighter, better balance, made better, etc...

Very true they have nothing in common except ammunition. That was my point. I have one headed my way so we'll see if the rumors are true. I imagine they are coming from guys like Larry Vickers.

There's a LV video out there but I can't seem to find it. I'll post it as soon as I can find it.

Edit: I couldn't find it but go to m4c.net and you can read a truck load of testmony by guys who have been-there-done-that.
