If I see ANYTHING remotely like the garbage I just removed from this post again, anywhere on this forum, the authors will be leaving by the nearest window.

Take heed and check yourselves before posting.

Curious about his claim that it "aesthetically looks like an AK because it needed to -- that was one of the requirements."  Makes sense just haven't heard that specific claim before best as I can recall.

The whole "had to be approved by the soviet" thing, most likely. Though I doubt we will ever know more than at least one was sent to the Kremlin for testing, it passed the trials, and the soviet allowed the Czechs to produce the rifle. That and the rifle had to use 7.62x39 ammo.

The irony is that it was originally chambered for 7.62x45 ammo, which is very close to .300 blackout or Grendel, I forget which.

7.62x45 is most ballistically similar to 6.8 spc IIRC, and of the two you mentioned probably closer to 6.5 Grendel.  .300 BLK is closer to 7.62x39.
