That someone started making an affordable VZ-58 receiver? The parts kits are floating around for about 50 bucks, but receivers are pretty much unattainable. I know that Ohio Ordnance makes one, but $695 is a bit much...

Looks like an AK. Does Nodakspud make one?

I believe the receivers are milled which makes it more expensive to manu. Also, i've read that the guns had some reliability issues.
Finnally, these don't take standard AK mags. Either you have some 30 rd vz mags from pre-99 or you'll have to find someone to make you a custom 10 rounder. There is a reason that the kits are such a "deal".

The good thing about the VZ58 is that you can pin the mag (10 rounder from Marstar [Canada]) and top load it like a SKS. Their are some people out there that make a 80% Hybrid to weld to the existing front cut trunion area.
