xc2, i've looked at a halkf-dozen or so kits and 3 assembled rifles.
the kit parts seemed to be in "good plus" condition. the rifles from oow look, of course, to be brand new.
furniture is available in the "chipboard" (wood/cellulose chips/pulp with a resin binding agent), hardwood and polymer.
the receivers look very well made when viewed in the white.
oow seems to be supporting the sale/manufacture of these rifles very well. although not inexpensive, they are a very high quality com-bloc rifle that would look good in anyones' safe.
please remember, the vz-58 is NOT an ak.
