    Hey all. Got a Cz858 on sale recently and have decided to make it a project gun. I am talking to my local gun store to get ideas on how to do it/ what to get, but I'm looking for inspiration!

    First project gun for me, anyone who's done a cz or vz before feel free to comment on parts to buy or stay away from.

    PICTURES of your babies are welcome (not of your children please :p )! I'm looking for ideas so if you put a pic up, please give me a heads up on the parts you used.

    Thanks!

    Here is the before image. Just for the fyi. Original side-folding stock, removable bayonet.

    My first idea is to remove the wood on this one. I may build a "cleaner" wood version in the future but this one will likely get tact'd out.

    Come on guys, I've never had a thread fail - don't break my streak!

    I'm also willing to accept ideas from the AK crowd. I know they're different, but they could give me ideas in general!

    Looks really nice! I've always liked the VZ58 over the AK!
