As found throughout the Czech Small Arms (CSA) line of vz.58 rifles and pistols, the vz.58 Tactical possesses the patented 'push-down' plate on the bolt carrier. The patented ‘push-down’ plate ensures the user will not experience possible misfire problems that can be found with other manufacturer vz.58 type firearms.
The vz.58 Sporter was imported into the United States in compliance with 18 U.S.C. 925(d)(3). CzechPoint adds USA made parts to the vz. 58 Sporter so as to legally reconfigure the firearm with a separate pistol grip and stock. This means that all vz. 58 rifles capable of using 30 round magazines possess 5 USA made parts to fully comply with Title 18, U.S.C., Section 922(r). The vz. 58 rifle is not sold with the bayonet lug as importation of the vz. 58 with a bayonet lug would violate US import law.
The five USA made parts on the vz. 58 Tactical model rifle are: sear, disconnector (both made from metal - 4140 steel), trigger (glass-filled nylon), M4 adjustable stock, and removable muzzle brake. The M4 stock is the TactLite six position stock with a Mil-Spec extension tube. This is not the commercial model stock assembly.
The Czech Small Arms stock adapter mounts the M4 style stock tube at the bottom area of the vz.58 receiver and has a slight downward angle (as can been seen in the photos to the left). Even though this adapter mounts the M4 style stock higher than the original vz.58 wood impregnated stock, it still provides a comfortable cheek weld for iron sights.
The color of the finish is a semi gloss/matte black coating (cured at 300°F). The coating has been applied over a phosphate finish to maximize finish durability. The new production rifle barrels are manufactured by Lothar Walther in Germany and made from a high alloy Chrome Molybdenum steel (4340) and is chrome-lined. The muzzle brake is removable and the thread pattern is 14x1 right hand (standard vz.58 thread pattern).
Please note that we are unable to fill requests for a specific trigger guard, front sight base, or sling swivel. Over the years, different trigger guards and sling swivels were manufactured as well as two different front sight bases (enclosed circle or ears protecting the front sight post). One is not better than the other - they are just slightly different.
