    Thought the site might like this one.

    This is an article I ran across on Military.com. There's a picture of two men from an episode of "Strike Back" and the author of the article is puzzled as to what it is.

    Anybody here care to take a stab at it BEFORE reading all the comments to the article? I certainly had no clue.

    :)

    Some variation on the CZ-58 I'd think.

    Look like some sort of VZ58 variant.

    It does look like a VZ-58 through the receiver, bolt and folding stock, but that obviously isn't a VZ-58 magazine sticking out...it doesn't have have the cut off toe.

    So I'm thinking it is a VZ-58 with a 5.56x45mm conversion kit installed

    VZ-58 with a conversion kit to take AR mags.

    It's relatively new to the US, but widely available overseas. That's an SBR version of the rifle in my video, which is a LOT of fun to shoot. :)
