Ohio Ordnance Works VZ 2000 7.62mm

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

That banana mag won't fit on AK-47s. In fact, the VZ 2000 is a whole different design from that of the AK, though it looks superficially like a cleaned-up version of one. This is a close s/a-only copy of the VZ-58, an assault rifle used by the Czech army. This was well made, coated with baked gray paint, quite accurate, and costly.

The VZ 2000 showed clean lines from the milled receiver and lack of a sheet-metal bolt cover. Just below the rear sight is the bolt knob. Note the bend in the trigger guard to give the left thumb access to the mag release. We really didn't like the look of the composite stock, though it was completely correct for the gun.
The VZ 2000 came with four of these 30-round mags in a beautiful leather pouch. There was also a sling, cleaning kit, etc. Ohio Ordnance Works puts together guns that look good and work well, despite high prices.
