Background

1. The Ceská Zbrojovka (CZ) model CZ858 Tactical series of firearms, hereafter referred to as the “CZ858 rifle”, has been available in Canada since 2005. Four distinct models are affected by the legislative changes proposed in Bill C-71, the CZ858 Tactical-2P, 2V, 4P and 4V, which differ in barrel length and stock configuration.

2. The CZ858 rifle is derived from the Soviet era Czechoslovakian selective fire Vz58 assault rifle by modifying the internal firing mechanism and re-marking the firearm. Consequently the rifle may bear original Czechoslovakian markings as well as modern Czech Republic markings.

3. Most CZ858 rifles will become prohibited firearms and will be eligible for grandfathering. However, some early models of CZ858 rifles are not affected by the legislation and will remain restricted or non-restricted firearms according to barrel length, and will not require grandfathering.

4. The two groups of firearms are identified by the pattern of proof marks present on the rear sight block of the rifle. In general, CZ858 rifles with a proof mark dated 2005 or 2006 are not affected by the legislation and will remain restricted or non-restricted firearms. Those CZ858 rifles with a proof mark dated 2007 or later will become prohibited firearms.

5. The legislation provides a three month period from March 20 to June 30, 2018 during which all CZ858 rifles will remain restricted or non-restricted firearms and can be traded between licensed individuals according to the existing rules. This creates an opportunity for those owners who wish to enter the grandfathering class to acquire one or more of the affected firearms before June 30, 2018. After June 30, 2018 until coming into force of the relevant provisions, the firearms will remain restricted or non-restricted and can be transferred to licensed individuals. However, individuals who acquire an affected firearm after June 30, 2018 will not qualify for grandfathering privileges (unless they possessed the same class of firearm on June 30, 2018).

6. The purpose of this guide is to assist owners of CZ858 rifles with the determination of which group their firearm or firearms fall into. The guide applies only to the four affected models: CZ858 Tactical-2P, CZ858 Tactical-2V, CZ858 Tactical-4P, and CZ858 Tactical-4V.

Step 1: Determine whether your rifle is a CZ858 Tactical rifle

8. The left side of the CZ858 rifle is marked with the serial number, model designation, caliber and manufacturer’s logo on the left side of the receiver above the trigger. The model designation must be one of the following:

CZ858 Tactical-2P
CZ858 Tactical-2V
CZ858 Tactical-4P
CZ858 Tactical-4V

9. The rear sight block is located forward of the receiver (action). The relevant proof marks are present on the left side of the rear sight block just below the rear sight.

Step 2: Determine whether your rifle is an affected model

Generation #1 (Unaffected)

9. If the markings on the left side of the CZ858 rifle sight block follow the pattern below, the CZ858 rifle is unaffected by the legislation and will remain a restricted or non-restricted firearm. The “she” code for the manufacturer (Ceská Zbrojovka Uherský Brod) is visible at the upper left of the sight block. The military property mark (crossed swords) is to the right. Below those markings are the modern Czech Republic proof mark and date, in this case, 2005. A 2006 date is also possible.

Generation #2 (Unaffected)

10. The markings on the left side of the second generation CZ858 rifle sight block, illustrated in figure 6 below, differ in that the original manufacturer’s markings have been removed. The upper portion of the left side of the sight block has been machined, removing the surface metal where the code for the manufacturer and the military property mark would have been located. The machined space is now occupied by the modern proof mark and date, in this case, 2006. Note the machined space occupies approximately half the surface of the left side of the rear sight block.

Generation #3 (Affected)

11. The markings on the left side of the third generation CZ858 rifle sight block below, differ from the first and second generation rifles in that nearly all the surface of the left side of the rear sight block has been machined to create a depression. The machined space is now occupied by the modern Czech Republic proof mark and date, in this case, 2011. CZ858 Tactical rifles with this kind of marking will become prohibited and eligible for grandfathering.

12. Although this generation of CZ 858 rifle is typically associated with a proof mark dated 2007 or later, it is possible that some late production 2006 proof dated rifles will follow this pattern. These rifles will also become prohibited and eligible for grandfathering.

20. Third generation CZ858 rifles may also bear an arsenal repair code, in this case indicating the original Vz58 assault rifle was returned to the arsenal for repairs in 1975 and 1977.
