Czech Small Arms vz. 58 Rifles: PDW, Sporting and Bolt Action

    CZ may have abandoned the vz. 58 rifle, but Czech Small Arms (CSA) continues to produce a range of different models. The CSA vz. 58 rifles are chambered in 7.62x39mm and .223 Remington. They vary in size from the PDW-sized Compact to the much larger Sporter Rifle. CSA even produces a bolt-action version with a thumbhole stock, presumably for places where they either ban all semi-automatics or just ban them for hunting. The rifles below were on display at IWA ’13.
