    There should be some "pucker factor" anytime you are looking down the wrong end of a weapon.

    Looks like a couple of VZ's, one with folding stock and one with fixed stock. Very nice weapons! Ask me how I know! (hint: none of mine have the bipod)

    I just got the bipods from the Czech Republic. The dude was saying how they were drying up. I think they were $80 each delivered. Good rifles.

    I grabbed them when they were cheap as shit. I didn't realize how great they were. Milled receivers yet lighter than AK's with stamped receivers. They're tack drivers and so easy to use. My goto zombie killer!

    I don't have any rifles with bipods. Heck I'd take me 5 minutes to get down on the ground! And 10 more to get back up! There's almost always a vertical surface to use as a steady rest while standing.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg I sure hope Dragon Man has worked out all the " legalities" of DD ( destructive device) and full auto Licence transfer when he passes on....it would be ashame to see the stuff cut up and destroyed....as a collector myself, I just can not imagine all the legalities he had to comply with....and many of the items he has certainly are " unobtainable " in today's market, he must have started collecting in the 50's when M1 Carbines were $12, and Browning 1919's were $150....a snap shot of my puny ever growing " museum", and yes I am running out of room....

    ...the M59 is a rare rarity, they are absolutely HUGE, made huge targets, and were way way to heavy to be practical. I had the opportunity to climb all over one, inside and out. He is the only one I know of that has a running M59, they are beasts to drive and maintain.
