The Czech SA Vz 58 service rifle is now available from CZ-USA in 2 semi-automatic versions, including the VZ 58 Military Sporter. The Sa vz. 58 was developed by Ing. Jiri Cermak in 1956 and 1957, adopted by the Czechoslovakian army in 1958. Approximately one million Sa vz. 58 rifles were produced during its 20 year production run. The new Tactical and Military Sporter models are manufactured by combining original Sa vz. 58 components with a new semi-auto only milled receiver, a new trigger mechanism and new fire controls. Includes one 30 round alloy magazine, cleaning kit, and owner's manual and history on CD.

CZ VZ 58 Capacity

Chambered in 7.62x39mm, CZ’s VZ-58 was Czechoslovakia’s (Current day Czech Republic) attempt to design their own rifle firing the Soviet standard cartridge.  Available with 10 and 30 round detachable box magazines, the VZ-58 reloads in similar fashion to the AK47, yet its open-top design allows the user to top off the magazine by feeding clips through the open receiver and into the magazine.
Slightly shorter and slightly lighter than the AK47, the VZ-58 excels as a handy rifle running through the woods or navigating in close-quarter environments.

CZ VZ 58 Ergonomics

While the VZ-58 can be easily mistaken for an AK47 by the untrained eye, this rifle’s only comparisons are the ammo compatibility and the curved magazine.  The VZ-58 utilizes wood or Bakelite furniture with contours and geometry far more comfortable than the AK.  The rifle’s safety is placed more akin to an AR15’s fire selector.

CZ VZ 58 Fit & Finish

The VZ-58’s wood furniture is finely sanded and then stained to protect against moisture, while the versions with Bakelite furniture sport a somewhat glossy finish.  The black finish on the metal components is uniformly applied, and the internal components are built with tighter tolerances than the AK so you’ll find nothing rattles when you shake the rifle.
