It's like an AR and an AK had an adolescent child. It kicks like an AR with the balls of an AK but is so small you'd swear you were holding a 22 with the length of a crossbow. Pardon my sniffling but there is construction going on and a big dry storm going over us, my chest is acting up. I got this thing for my little sister, it's just her size but stalwart as all hell like an AK. It's TINY! Seriously, this thing is fit for a 14 year old or 17 year old girl as the pinnacle of self defense and force multiplication. Perfect size for a woman or teenage boy. Light as can be, too.

I may be wrong, but isn't the only importer of the VZ Century Arms? They're not known for quality builds. Another thing against the VZ is the lack of spare parts, at least in the numbers of both the AR and AK.

It's reliable. It's not by century arms, this one is an SA. There's Czechpoint, CA and a few others. It's like an AK in that it's pretty hard to kill, whole thing is milled and there's about five moving parts in the whole system.

Seems to have a lot of pluses, but I agree the availability of parts for the ar's and AK's makes this a fail for me.
Trust me, it don't need spare parts. It only has a few moving parts and they are either milled or steel, I have been impressed to no end with this weapon. Check out some of the stress tests on youtube, it is just as durable as an AK. I'm pretty big on the prepping and gun scene, when I found out about it I shelled out the cash without a second thought. I have every confidence in this gun and I'm pretty sure I won't be needing any spare parts. The mags, you can adapt it to accept AR mags with a cheap part. I kind of like the stock magazines though, they load really smooth.

I have owned, shot and built dozens of AR15 rifles, in various calibers. I had always wanted an AR in 7.62x39 Russian ... and I had also wanted one with a piston and a side folding stock. Rather than building such a specialised custom rifle, which would have cost a fortune just for the upper alone, I bought a CSA CZ58 instead. My 58 came out of the box with Black plastic furniture and an AR 15 butt stock adapter fitted with an M4/Telescoping stock. I swapped over to an ACE Ultralight rigid butt stock instead, then eventually added a side folder adapter to the M4 telescoping stock. With the butt stock folded, this is one compact little rig.



The CZ58 is absolutely a great piece of kit ... light ... fast .... reliable ... durable. I put a Bushnell red dot on it and a compensator, and it became my favorite 0-200 yd choice. It is lighter and more compact than my Russian SKS, and the removable magazines are a big advantage for run and gun high round count scenarios. I also have a Just Right Carbine in 9mm that takes Glock magazines, and it is a tough call as to which I like best for up close and personal scenarios. Of course the 7.62X39 Russian cartridge wins at anything past CQB ranges.

Only thing I don't like about the 58 is the safety is on the right side. An aftermarket ambi safe is available.As mentioned, adapters are available to use AR mags in both 5.56 and 7.62x39. NOTE that here in Canada, the CZ 58/VZ58 carbines are also available with 8" and 12" and 16" barrels, and the CSA brand models are available in both .223 and 7.62x39 Russian.
