Czechpoint - Product - vz. 58 Rifles - Sa vz. 58 Hi-Cap Sporter SKS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Vz. 58 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I've been reading the pdf manual on the czechpoint website and thinking about the innards of my beloved SKS. There are some similarities beyond caliber. Obvious difference in the bolt design with the VZ having a striker firing system vs. the SKS's firing pin system. The receiver cover is a bit different, as are the return springs. Obviously, the magazines for the OEM SKS are different than those for the OEM VZ58, but aftermarket removable SKS mags seem similar. What are the practical differences between the VZ58 and the SKS, in your opinion? Since i have an SKS, what would be the point of buying a VZ58, other than "collecting"? Thanks!
