    It's right there, on the passenger side.

    Is it a tweaked VZ? A VZ14?

    Yes it's a .223 VZ 58, made in the Czech republic for the Canadian market. The charging handle is the same as a regular VZ 58. There were teething problems with this .223 version, but all is good now.
    As to be expected it shoots flatter than the 7.62, but other than that there is not a lot of difference.

    It might be less hassle to get one from the Czech Republic or Canada, but I don't see why not. You should not have trouble importing one as they are new ( non military ) everything.
