Ohio Ordnance VZ 2000 American Made Czech VZ58 7.62X39 Rifle + Accessories - Like New

The Czech VZ58 is the best designed military rifle in the world, bar none. When the Soviets tried to force the Czech’s to use the AK47 they designed the VZ58 because they were unwilling to live (or die) with the vast number of shortcomings inherent in the AK. As a result, though it looks somewhat like an AK, the only thing it has in common is the cartridge. Unlike the AK it has a machined receiver, drop block lock-up (like the P-38), is striker fired, uses a short stroke piston, has an ergonomic safety (you don’t have to take your hand off the grip to operate it), has last shot hold-open, accepts stripper clips, is lighter, more accurate and more reliable. This example was made by Ohio Ordnance Works exactly to the Czech spec’s right down to the finish (except where it had to be kept in compliance with US laws). The prestigious Small Arms Review called it “outstanding” in no uncertain terms (November 2002). It features a 16” barrel, adjustable tangent sights, thumb safety, hold-open, 30 round magazine, stripper clip guide and nearly indestructible impregnated wood military stocks. It comes with a complete cleaning kit, sling and bayonet and scabbard (to comply with US laws of the time, there is no bayonet lug on the rifle). It’s in like new condition retaining 99% finish while the bore is perfect as are the stocks. It shows very little signs of use and since they stopped making these in 2014 very few have come to market (those that have them, keep them). An extraordinary arm that is the most sought-after personal weapon of mercenary’s and special ops personal serving today. In fact, it is still standard issue the Czech military - a truly outstanding military rifle.
