The CZ Vz. 58 is a rifle which is similar to the AK-47 only through their shared 7.62x39mm caliber and aesthetics. It functions entirely differently and has no interchangeable parts with the AK-47, including the magazine. My state (Connecticut) has its own state-level assault weapons ban. In it is the following: Sec. 53-202a. Assault weapons: Definition. (a) . . . inclusive, "assault weapon" means: (1) . . . any of the following specified semiautomatic firearms: . . . Avtomat Kalashnikov AK-47 type . . . According to what I have read, to be an "AK-47 type", the firearm must be aesthetically similar to an AK-47, operate similarly, and have interchangeable parts. From a perfunctory search of Google, I have seen multiple people claim that because the CZ Vz. 58 does not meet these three requirements, it is not an "AK-47 type" and it is thus legal for sale in Connecticut. Does anyone have any information on this?
