Default VZ 58 anyone have one?

I'm looking to get one more AK and I'm leaning heavily towards the VZ 58. I shot one last Saturday and was impressed with it. I realize it uses proprietary magazines but I can live with that.

Any of you guys own one? If so what do you think of them?

I have a friend with one and it is very impressive. Not an AK, though.

Very slim and trim, and I'd buy one if it came along.

It can be field striped and put back together blindfolded. the gas piston is one piece and can be cleaned easily as well. I worried about the mags too but the local gun shop gave me 6 30 round mags.
