    ok so I took the plunge... after 2 years of busting my ass... 70-80+ hour weeks... over 900 hours of studying for 1 test (took 3 tries to pass) while working full time to pass high school math content exam... I got my first teaching contract and as my reward I'm getting a vz 59 from Malcolmar Firearms... down payment is en route... I've got 880 rounds of 7.62x 54r en route along with 2 250 round belts and cans.... the gun will also come with another 250 round belt and can and a 50 round belt and can also... I can't wait to load all the belts and break this baby in properly :) they are also going to make a rail mount so I can put on a red dot...
    now waiting is the hard part... :D

    "they are also going to make a rail mount so I can put on a red dot... "

    Rather; "they are also going to make a rail mount so I can roll it to the range" :D

    Very cool. I believe Trent on here was awaiting one of these from someone or other (how many guys could possibly be making these, right? :D)

    Lot's of feelthy peektures when she does arrive, okay :evil:

    O.K, I have to ask.

    What is the appeal of this?

    uh only 250 round belts of 7.62x54r... which is russian version of .308...

    That looks like all kinds of fun. Enjoy it. You've certainly earned it.

    I am well versed as to the developmental history and deployment of 7.62x54r in its various czarist, Finnish and Warsaw pact incarnations.

    So the appeal lies strictly in capacity? I just don't see it.

    But hey, whatever makes you happy.

    It's not your gun, so you don't have to see it.

    Good gun to defend your castle with! From a properly sand bagged position with say a 2x or better Aimpoint or ACOG only canon or rocket launcher fire is gonna put you down (barring air support!). You need 5k ammo at least to get a good body stack :evil: . You know I think AIMED semi fire from such a fire support platform beats light weapon zone full auto fire any day! IMH experience.;)

    Not at all. Like most of the other commentors here, I am pleased the OP is happy with his new rifle.
  17. Sam Cade

    Sam Cade Member

    Ditto. He could even marry my sister.;)

    However, I still think that dropping 4k on a firearm of such marginal utility is well, quite frankly, nuts.
    Did the OP honestly expect tummy rubs and congratulations all around?

    Especially considering that $4,000 will get you into a GAP-10 and glass.

    I dunno, maybe I need to loosen up, but I don't have much use for toys like this. Wiggling my index finger and watching dirt kick up on the berm just isn't fun for me.:D

    I am curious how they modify these to fire from a closed bolt. Do they add a hammer or something?

    im not a dog so tummy rubs don't do much for me... I already married best woman on the planet so no interest in anyone's sister... its a FUN gun... a reward for busting my ass... ive already got hd, concealed weapons, multiple other rifles in various calibers... some of these posters need to pull the stick out of their butt and lighten up... yes 4k is more than the price of a real nice ar and a lot of other kinds of guns... its also more than i spent on my truck almost 10 years ago... maybe i have different priorities than others... don't be hatin... im debt free i can afford a fun toy.

    @happygeek... you'd have to ask Dave Bane owner of Malcolmar... he's got patent pending guts hes put in these guns to make them semi auto... as well as milled receiver from 40lb block of steel and custom made barrels from Germany...
