Does anyone know if The sporter version with the retractable stock and black furniture has a mil spec tube or a commercial. I'd really like to get a magpul stock. But don't want to buy the wrong one. Thanks

All I know is the fab arm stock i put on mine that is supposedly for it rattles around like crazy.

The CSA VZ58 that comes with the AR buffer tube from the factory is commercial spec, you can see the slant on the rear.

The Fab Arm stock I believe is milspec. They really should have the specs listed somewhere in the literature or website.

Hi Nate,

I'd buy a regular VZ58, then get this part here (http://www.zahal.org/products/vz-58-cz858-ar-stock-adapter?path_parent=219005http://www.zahal.org/products/vz-58-cz858-ar-stock-adapter?path_parent=219005). They ship fast.
Then get a milspec buffer tube and the magpul stock of your choice.
Might not be the cheaper way but... No headaches and no rattling, and rattling depends on the stock too. STR series don't rattle, I have no CTR but they seem to have same blocking system.
Also, don't forget to buy a cheek riser (a large one), unless you wanna have a sore neck. They are $20 on Amazon : http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B004TH8Y80.

Have fun with your unrestricted AK in disguise :)

I took a similar route - bought the version with the AR tube and stock (commercial spec) and replaced it with the Fab Defense recoil reducing buffer tube and a Magpul CTR (milspec) with the cheek riser. Good tip on the cheek riser it works great on the VZ platform.

FYI Saskatoon Gun Works has a sale on the milspec CTR, great price plus free shipping over $90. I ended up buying the stock and riser together, pretty good deal IMO.
