    You will need to read more about these samples. In general, as far as I know, Czech weapons are recognized in the world.

      Perhaps motivated by AK?
      Why is this store so bent? After all, the NATO cartridges have less taper than 5,45x39.
      The same AR-kovskie shops for 30 rounds are not so crooked.
      The purchased version is designed for a caliber of 7,62 × 39 mm.

        The cartridge has a 7,62x39mm conical sleeve and a magazine with an unbent shape is impossible.

        The cartridges are Russian there. But the mechanics are completely different. Czechs have never been armed with AK.

          The service life of the barrel is designed for 20 shots, the technical service life of the rifle as a whole is at least 000 years. The failure rate is 20%

          Yes, they even delivered their weapons to the fascists - what are you talking about?

          “By June 1941, German units were almost one-third equipped with Czech armaments. Chekhov’s hands assembled a quarter of all tanks, 26 percent of trucks and 40 percent of small arms of the German army. According to the Center for Military Economics of Germany, on March 31, 1944, the Führer had workshops of 857 plants in the Czech Republic received weapons and equipment for almost 13 billion 866 million Reichsmarks.

          Soviet historians, obeying ideological principles, painted a picture of the proletarian solidarity of Czech hard workers with Soviet brothers in the class. Unfortunate Czechs, they say, were driven to the machines almost at gunpoint. And so, suffering unbearably, the work collectives of these 857 Czech enterprises increased their deadly production from year to year.

          According to German sources, in 1944, the Czech Republic monthly (!) Delivered to Germany about 11 thousand pistols, 30 thousand rifles, more than 3 thousand machine guns, 15 million rounds of ammunition, about 100 self-propelled artillery pieces, 144 infantry guns, 180 anti-aircraft guns, more than 620 thousand artillery shells, almost a million shells for anti-aircraft guns, from 600 to 900 wagons of aerial bombs, 0,5 million signal ammunition, 1000 tons of gunpowder and 600 thousand explosives. As for Czech labor productivity, it was not inferior to that of German workers. "

            Did you yourself understand the meaning of your copy-paste? They did not produce their own small arms. but German. And after the entry of Czechoslovakia into the police department, we were not able to force them to adopt the AK. Although under license they produced Kalash - LADA ČZ 2000 - a small arms system based on the AKS-74, AKS-74U and RPKS-74.

                German tourist Czech machine gun Brno ZB vz. 37 quite a while was made for the Wehrmacht.
                For the most part, they produced German weapons for the Wehrmacht, a little of their own, but the Wehrmacht ordered and took mainly their own.

            Until a certain point in my life, I was very skeptical about the PKK like a machine gun. But when life forced me to make friends with him, I realized that the machine "at your own expense" (properties and characteristics), works wonders in dexterity and skill.

            Therefore, "knowing" without operating experience, this is not a guide for understanding what kind of weapon ...

        Now they are cutting VREN 2 with steel, because plastic is evil.
