Looks like the vz58 “other” was removed from the website, are you guys still planning on making/offering that ?

It no longer made much sense, considering that it would be a fixed magazine semiauto, that is top-loaded with SKS stripper clips, and at a price point that is roughly equivalent or exceeds that of semi-auto detachable magazine firearms based on other platforms in 7.62x39.  ie - not very practical.

Why would it need to be fixed mag if you're making it into an Other? Fixed mag was just for the rifles I thought? I could understand fixed mag for a pistol so you can have whatever grip and barrel length you want but as an other you aint worrying about that.

Lack of available receivers to turn into others, for the most part.  Rifles are more available, and I've converted several to fixed-mag.

I'd have thought you'd have done what you did with the Bren's bought pistols, put some kind of barrel extension on and a VFG and Viola..... or am I missing a trick? I checked your website and you seem happy to do other Galils now in 7.62x39? I'm guessing they are different enough from an AK even in 7.62x39 to do this?

Might have to do with needing virgin receivers to make into “others”?

It's the VZ58s specifically.  They were more readily available a few years ago, but the current supply's dried up.

Will have a sale starting next week and lasting however long we all have left before the state passes more anti-gun laws.

It was fun while it lasted!

Really wanted a  FDE Scorpion, and a Bren.  Guess it will be a Ruger PC carbine and Fightlite SCR now. :dunno:
