Thanks, I don’t worry too much about weight. At least the weight of the rifle. Full mags get heavy quick. That said, my VZ58 feels light to hold and use compared to many of my other rifles. With the way it’s setup, it works well under 50yds. Twin pistol grips, trigger work, laser and the surprisingly effective muzzle brake make a big difference. It’s not my Scorpion micro in close but it’s not too far off. I shoot it regularly at 300yds suppressed too with excellent results. This is my first Vertex glass, I’m normally a Burris snob, and it’s really nice to use.
     I’m confident if something fails, it’ll be me, not the VZ58.

I use mine as a SHTF rifle. Or I will until my G36K build is finished. Both have their pros and cons. The Vz makes for an excellent camping gun or S.T.A.L.K.E.R. rifle too, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Believe  S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is in reference to a video game: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

InRange posted a LARPing video on the subject that included a Vz58:
