Default Something Different

With so many good reviews on the VZ58 I decided to get one. The VZ58 wasn't in my budget so the VZ2008 (CIA's build) got the nod. If the VZ2008 holds up I'll get the higher quality VZ58.

It is a well balanced rifle (more-so than the AK), easy to strip, and the mag release is easier to manipulate.

There isn't a huge accessory market but the parts that are available seem to be very functional. There's a few headed my way and more planned so we'll see.

Here's some pictures. I'll get a range report w/i the next couple days.

Irons, rapid fire. Not as fast as the ARs but then again it doesn't have a brake or red dot. We'll see what we can do about that next month.

Its 30ft (max defensive distance) standing from the low ready 2-3 rounds at a time. It helps increase sight alignment speed, muzzle control, and safety manipulation. It also lets you know real quick if your grip and stance are off. More or less a muscle memory drill.

Fiberboard hater; now what will you do if you are caught up a creek without a paddle? That stock buttstock is canoe-ready.
