    Default Just finished vz-58

    I just wanted to post a pic of the vz-58 I just finished last night.
    It was built on an ORF receiver and went together great. Like any other kit out there I had some very minor tweaking to do to get everything to function smoothly. But to me thats all part of the fun.
    The gun is finished in Lauers vz-2000 and while not a perfect match, it was pretty close to the color on the receiver stub.
    Not really an ak but wasn't sure where else to post.

    Thanks
    I thought about welding a section in, but the stub on this vz was cut too short, it didn't even have the feed ramp let alone locking lugs. So I went with a full receiver. The ORF receiver worked great, only minor fitting around the locking lugs, but no big deal.
    The guys at ORF were great, answered any questions I had and were very helpfull on this build. I can't thank Todd enough, great dealing with them.

    I made it out to the range both yeaterday and again today. I already have almost 400 rounds through it with out so much as a hiccup. Yugo mil-surpluss ammo, egyptian ammo and wolf all fed without a problem.
    Just got back from the gun show with another 1000 rounds of 7.62 and 1000 of 5.56 for the ar. Now I'm broke, hate spending too much on ammo, but everyone else has been out.

    Glad to hear your happy with it.

    If you don't mind, how much was the 7.62 at the show?
