Originally issued to the Czech army in 1958, the VZ58 is still in use by both the Czech and Slovak armies, their police and customs agents. Though similar to the other rifles of this style in appearance, the VZ58 uses a completely different bolt and fire control system. Even with a machined receiver, the VZ2008 is lighter than most similarly styled firearms with a sheet metal receiver. Our semi-auto version features a U.S. made receiver machined out of a bar of premium steel and a quality U.S. made barrel.

Despite Centuries hit or miss reputation, I decided to give them a shot on the build. When I went to pickup the riffle at my FFL, I noticed a small crack on the rear of the receiver cover, which as a bad start. I decided to accept the transfer anyway, knowing I could buy an original receiver cover is much better shape for about $20. Went home, tested it out...no trigger issues like the ones commonly reported. Things were looking OK.

I proceeding with basic field strip, and took my time cleaning the firearm properly, noting tons of filth everywhere. Barrel took a long time to clean, countless patches were black. I noticed the recover cover was difficult to remove, (yes I pulled the trigger first to relax the springs) After about 2 hours of CLP work, firearm reassembled. Trigger functioned and all seemed well.

Later that night trigger was failing on-and off. I found setting the by setting the safely on and off and cocking, The trigger worked again. I haven't fired it yet. Today I took it out to check it out. 2 days ago when I put it away the trigger was working. Today trigger fails no matter what I do. I also can't field strip since trigger doesn't work.

I now strongly regret this recent purchase. Century is a local company for me, only 5 miles from where I live. I wanted to give them a chance. I would not again. I'm no gunsmith, but having an engineering background, I know how this firearm works. I would have been better off doing a quality build myself and having a gunsmith check my work. While Century is in my neighborhood if they were willing to help I understand the average turnaround is 6 weeks. I'm at the point where I may just use the thing for parts and built do a built I know will be reliable, rather than wait forever to get my new riffle back.

Given the circumstances I can't recommend this product, I'm taking a loss on this one, but would risk a CIA build again. It seemed like a good deal, but not worth the frustration of a firearm that doesn't fire. I know others have reported good experiences. Add me to the list of CIA failures, and I hate having to say that about a local company I would have proudly supported.

What a cool rifle! Just received my VZ and she is flawless mag looks almost new sling is new w the Czech crossed swords and date stamp of 1972. Bayo looks great along with the cleaning kit. Fast shipping as always and I couldn't be any happier with my purchase...I will def be back as buds is great to deal with :-)

Great buy overall for the money. The rifle came with a sling, bayonet, an un-issued cleaning kit and one VZ58 magazine. I'd recommend cleaning/lubricating the rifle before use. Ive currently run 10 mags (300 rounds) without ANY kind of malfunction. Only thing needed was an AK sight tool to adjust the front post for elevation. Best 5 rnd group was 2.5 MOA @ 100 yards with Red Army Standard 7.62x39 Thats pretty good for an iron sighted battle rifle.
Be aware that if you run back to back mags through it the foregrip will get HOT! You can also wrap the side folding stock with paracord to improve comfort and cheek weld. Overall a great rifle for a good price.

Excellent rifle! Lighter and more compact than an AK. The whole rifle feels nice and tight when firing. The mags load and insert easily, and the bolt hold open is a nice feature, and I plan on installing a bolt release lever. Fit and finish is excellent. This rifle makes my wasr 10 feel like $100 rifle. Everyone that sees the rifle asks about it. I paid with ACH payment and it drove me nuts waiting for the funds to clear, next time ill use a card. I am very happy with my purchase and plan to go through buds again. Now its time to find more mags and ammo.

Got it fast- as is the Bud's norm. Took it home, stripped and cleaned the gun. Easier than just about anything- two retained pins and done. Took this bad boy out to the range and could hit plate standing all day at 25 and 50 yards shooting fast. Ate cheap steal cased ammo the whole time. Get one. It'll do anything you could ask of a 7.62x39. Champ little rifle.
