    since i was alone and no vice, i came up with an idea to re-install the recoil spring that took me less than a minute , the only tool i needed was a drinking straw , i used the ones that bend near the top (thinner than the milk shakes type).

    i dont know whether this idea has been suggested before or not but it does work.

    1. slide the straw over the spring retaining wire , all the way to the end of the wire, it should fit snuggly.



    2. slide the recoil spring all the way in.



    3. place the rear end of the top cover firmly on the table (preferrably on a non-skid pad or the wife will kill ya, lol) and using both hands grab the spring and push it down till it passes the top of the retaining wire(you can see it thru the straw). taking the next two pic was no easy task due to the pressure from the spring, luckily i kept it steady and it didnt fly away.



    4. hold the spring firmly with your fingers (thumb, index ) while the remaining fingers (middle, ring and pinky) gripping the top cover, once that is done, release the other hand and pull up the straw, exposing the top of the wire.



    5. with the free hand put the spring retainer piece on top of the wire to lock the spring in, easy way is to line up the two wire with the grooves on the side of the retainer piece and rotate the piece with your fingers and the wire will line up to locking position... note my fingers was turning purple due to it took longer than a minute to take pics.

    Not sure what they are called but ive seen them at Home Hardware. Any hardware store should carry them.




    Give it a tap with a hammer, its a little tight.
    Use a punch to pop it out.

    3) no, its not the gremlin, actually the reverse .

    first , try dry firing again and check the select lever at different/part way positions also check the axis pins are in correctly.

    if it still doesnt work then you need to get the top cover off to find out whats wrong , to do that you need to remove the pistol grip and the square screw will fall in, thru the hole stick in a hook and pull down on the sear or sear spring , that will release the striker.

    ps, i have the cz858 and not the vz58 , i know the internals are slightly different so its best you ask someone who are fimiliar with the trigger housing to help you .





    you are almost there .
    you not knowing the lay out of the trigger mechanism so i thought i'll post more pics .

    the yellow handle tool is pointing to the sear spring .


    the yellow handle tool is point to the back of the sear.


    home made hook is placed at the back of the sear.


    pull down on the hook and the striker (hopefully) will move forward .
    How to paracord your 858 folding stock.

    1. buy your paracord choose your colour my technique only shows how to do a single colour but it is possible to do 2 colours by melting the ends of the 2 different coulour ropes together. but that is another tutorial.
    2. Cut your length of cord I have found about 14 feet to be a good length for this length of stock they say about a foot of cord per inch of coverage. A little more never hurt you can always trim it but you cant add to it.
    3. Begin your tying at the hing end of the stock. there is a little bit of a spot there on the right side that is like a groove it is a nice place to start.

    4. Find the center of your rope by lining up the 2 cut ends then work your way back to the middle you can mark it with a felt if you like then tie your first knot.



    5.Pull it really tight then begin your first of the weave knots. make an s shape with the rope on the right side. then weave your left rope as shown in the photos ( i hate trying to describe this crap lol)





    6. Ok it is easiest not to work with the ends of the rope since there is 7 feet of it on each side so start your weave by grabbing the rope like i do in the pics (just double it over and feed it through the pattern then pull the lengths thru.) you can get into a rhythm.
    pull it very tight by working it pull out away from each other and pulling the left side up and down and then the right side keeping tension on both it's hard on the hands but will make a difference in the tightness. you will see the bottom line is get it tight. once you have a few knots in a row you will see a ridge forming on both sides you can control where this ridge sits by watching your knots as you tie them. my first time doing this i had it started at the top next one i did i made the ridge in the middle of the I beam arm of the stock. it's a matter of personal preference but you can control it and maybe make a design with it ie: undulating pattern. in this example i went down the middle of the I beam. my original posted pics were the top and slowly working to the middle by the end of the stock. ok now a bit more detail on the sequence of knots.
    7. when weaving it is easy to lose track of which side you need to make the s shape and which one gets fed thru. an easy way to remember is to look at the rope after you have it tightend one side of rope should be kinda pulled down and the other end sticks up you want to S the side that is down.

    as you see in this pic the left side of rope is what you want to S next.

    feed the right hand side rope thru and then pull the length right thru as always... and then tighten it hard! ( my hands are so sore when im done)


    8. Ok that is the pattern now just repeat over and over and over and over lol now i will show you something i just did. i took a piece of 1/2 inch rope about 4 inches long and wrapped it with the same camo coulour rope i do the weave with then lashed it to the stock to give it a better cheek weld.


    9. Keep weaving come on you can do it.... it was hard to ease the transition where i added the padding something to experiment with. maybe different ways to pad it out.
    originally i ended my weave at the shoulder plate.



    you can see in one of these the damn yellow 1/2 inch rope i used for the pad sticks out like a sore thumb. if i could i would have used black rope for that instead.
    this time i did a wrap around part of the shoulder plate as well. when you run out of rope simply pull it very tight cut of the ends with about 1/4 inch of rope left sticking out and melt it with a lighter i use the side of the lighter to smooth/squish the melted rope down. locks it in pretty good.
    10. go out and shoot the damn thing!

    Well that's it my first tutorial i hope it makes sense there are lots of youtube videos on doing the cobra weave so if i havent shown that well enough go check them out.

    Okay, I've been mucking around with my Vz58 shorty and trying to install the extended mag release. No luck getting that first pin out!

    Does anyone have any advice beyond: push harder?

    VZ upper by NEA

    I've found that the NEA upper does the best for co-witness with the original sights. It took me all of 30 seconds to zero it. I'm going to try it out on Friday and see just how well it holds that zero. Here's a picture of the mount. (It is actually black, it just doesn't look that way in the picture.)
