The military Sporter models are manufactured by combining original Sa vz. 58 components with a new semi-auto only milled receiver, a new trigger mechanism and new fire control parts and new barrel. While the appearance of the VZ 58 looks similar to the AK47, it was inspired by the German STG 44 and initial development was actually based on the 7.92 x 33. Mechanically, the VZ 58 is completely different from the AK47 and no parts, including magazines, are interchangeable.
