Well I disagree. If I am going to get an AK like gun, it'll be another Vz.58 which I find superior to the AK in every way. I was wondering if I could change it up a little for all my Brown Bear ammo, but from my brief research I can't find something else I like. I just need one of their tactical versions to get a sight for my aging eyes. A Vz.58 is less weight, more accurate, about as simple, and just as reliable. To your point though, it's not as ubiquitous and would cost more.
