The 7.62 mm. Czech VZ–58 assault rifle (7,62 mm samopal vzor 58) is a refinement of the Kalashnikov AK47 design. The VZ–58 was made from 1959–1984 by Česká Zbrojovka a. s. of Uherský Brod, Czechoslovakia. The VZ-58 is still a standard infantry weapon in the Army of the Czech Republic, used by troops serving in Afghanistan.
The VZ–58 knife bayonet was initially made as a forging, however, the manufacturing process was later changed to use investment casting. The press catch is in the crosspiece, eliminating the need for a pommel. However, the lack of a pommel resulted in broken grip scales, as was also encountered with the AKM Type I bayonet, due to the tendency for soldiers everywhere to use the bayonet as a hammer. Later production featured a full-length tang that extended rearward to protect the grip scales.
