How does the VZ-58 rank in the pecking order of AK's? I was thinking of looking into one of those. Are they worth the exta dough?
...except that it isn't an AK variant. The Vz.58 uses a tilting bolt, similar to the SKS, StG44, SVT-40, FAL, FN M1949, etc. Also, it has a linear striker mechanism, more like that of a Glock pistol or most old bolt-action rifles, rather than a hammer and simple firing pin. Furthermore, it's short-stroke gas operated, like an SKS. here's a picture of it with the bolt open:It is "THE" cadillac of all AK variants.
