I handled the CZ 858 today (I believe that is the same rifle, just the European name). It looks initially like an AK, until you look at it in closer detail.
On the shelf, it looks like a toy!! Really small, but up closer, up against the sholder it feels good. Solid, weighty, but not heavy. The sights line up naturally.
It seems a little rough around edges: the stock is plasticky (it is plastic, after all...), but pull the slide back and it looks very neat inside.
On top of that I think it is cheaper here than in the US!!
First time for everything!!
If I get any rifles, one will be a .22, the other will be this CZ.
Hopefully this will be the case in September!!
