I decided my new rifle is going ot be a VZ58. Shot one in the desert and thought it was terific!
Neither MMG or SolarTac is availblae off the shelf
So which would you consider? I'm leaning towards making an AK MMG work, it seems like less trouble-

Solar tactical could surely make one for you. Send him a PM.

Send your grip to Solar Tac and he can make some.

A little trimming and mods to the grip are neccessary. For staters, you will need to screw the AK adapter and MM grip together to make it a one piece. It has a tendancy to separate. I'm using the stock VZ-58 nut and the screw supplied with the MM grip.

oooh niiiice MMG job Mach1! Plus it counts as a US part... which is handy for the VZ builds that count their mag pieces towards the US made parts total.

(You know, for in case you find yourself out of state with normal cap VZ mags available)

Very nice Mach.

MMG is the only way to go.

I've been thinking about getting a Solar Tac grip for my vz.58 w/ thumb hole stock. I just don't want to deal with shipping the grip. I'm thinking that I might fill mine in with wood so when it comes time for me to move back east, I didn't dump more than $5-10 into it.

the ak mmg usually requires a little trimming even on ak's. i use a band saw. i heard the ak grip adapter was scarce, ace makes an ar/ak adapter.

MMG worked well for me. I actually like the way it feels on my converted Saiga 7.62
