$ 489 out the door---VZ-58 Made by D-Technik ---good Deal ??
« on: September 01, 2010, 12:29:14 AM »
Last Week I had gone to the High Caliber Gun-Show @ pasadena, Texas

I chanced upon a vendor selling the VZ-58
The rifle on display was apparently the last one they had and it was marked at $ 489
The only hesitation on my part was that it had the ugly black stock on it
however, the price was really attractive and so I asked the guy at the counter if they would take a trade
I had a G26 I was trying to trade in
They offered me $ 400 for the Glock and even though I think the glock was worth about $450,
I took the Rifle.
While all this was going on, the owner came by and offered to let the rifle go for $ 489 out the door
It seems they were closing down the business and wanted to get rid of the last rifle they had
I had to give them $ 89 cash and the Glock 26

I thought it was a good deal. Will have to spend another $ 40-50 to get the original VZ furniture but I thought I got a decent deal in spite of that

Any comments, thoughts from the Experts here??

I am in no way, shape, or form an expert but, that is a swingin' deal.  I have a factory stock if you're interested.  Send me a PM if so.

My only concern would be  "who assembled the rifle"?     Czechpoint at one time offered the receivers to anyone but no longer do.

Sounds like one heck of a deal to me. I'd rather have a Czechpoint gun, but the savings you realized of about $400 will pay for a lot of gunsmithing if you should have a problem with it.

I wasn't even aware that you could get a VZ- 58 with  " The Ugly Black Stock". That would have been a deal maker right there for me!

I forgot to mention it is a D-Technik Rifle with the Czechpoint box, CD and  markings on the receiver 

it is marked
D. TECHNIK A.S
CZECH REPUBLIC
TGI KNOX TN

 I think after researching it, I realized what a deal it is
It is original CZECH made by D-TECHNIK
I looked up the czechpoint website and its this model here

I am happy with the deal !!!

great deal and you got the much sought after and highly collectable "ugly black stock" to boot.  ;D ;D

HA HA that's funny. I had envisioned some home made stock painted black with a brush.

So Had I.  And feared you got a rifle put together by some who hit john..lol

Sounds like you got a heck of a deal after you described what you had.

123mustang,

Naw, that black sporter stock is not collectable.  I was just funnin' with ya. I will admit that those "Ugly Black Sporter Stocks" are an aquired taste though.  ;D  Peace, Dusty

I got the Sporter stock deliberately, and thought it was just fine, before I upgraded to the Zahal stock. ;D
