    Nice lookin' wood, Moose458. I am sure that you already know that ones with wood furniture is somewhat scarce.

    :)

    Do you folks in France skip rope with your rifle like the Russians use theirs for doing push-ups? :D

    jeepguy, I really like the Outdoor Connection SuperSling. It is strong, durable, comfortable, easy to adjust, and cheap (Walmart carries it under the Winchester name for about $15.00USD). You will have to take it apart to attach it to the swivels, but it will work. Mine came with the VZ.58 sling, and while it isn't my favorite, I haven't determined whether I want to change it or not, but if I do that'll be the sling that I go with.

    :)

    Just recently got mine from TGI it looks identical to Mavericks including the dog ear sites.

    IMG_5788.jpg

    I think I'm going to set it up near identical to armoredman's or 1858's when I get around to it...still not sure of which folder I want. Kinda also thinking about one of Ace's.

    But... I am just dieing to set one up with beautiful OEM wood like this. (Yes I'm a wood junky at heart. :eek:)

    ...but with an OEM folder stock.

    So tell me, how hot does the wood get compared to the bakelite after a few mags?

    CZ 858 on original FA receiver, still has the bayonet lug, threaded barrel, chromed barrel, gas piston and action. So comfortable, so light (both in weight and recoil). Just needs a reflex supressor which will be there by the end of this year.

    Due a rare instance I managed to get a small accessory for the VZ.58. Since it is not sharpened, it goes through a loophole in the law that otherwise bans bayonets. It was made in 1959, came with original sheath, does show the marks of usage (handle etc), but it otherwise in good order and as said has never been sharpened. And it cost me 25 bucks.

    Can I join the club? I just purchased a D-Technik VZ-58 through Waffen Werks. I'll post pictures after I get a chance to take some and upload them.

    Lookin' good, ifit. Same rifle with new furniture and optics or a new addition?

    Couple questions about your forend...does the top handguard not come off like the original (using the captured push-pin), and if not does it still afford easy access to the GP? Also, what about weight and balance? I like the sturdiness of a good Al. forend, but I wouldn't want to sacrifice the lightweight that the carbine affords. I want to swap my furniture in the near future and am having trouble deciding between a cheap and lightweight polymer Mako handguard set or the Mako VFR Al. rail. I only plan to add a Magpul VFG so the added strength isn't really necessary (though I might add a prismatic sight later on), but if I can have more without adding too much weight i'll do it.

    :)
