Looks like the goofy Czech VZ-52 rifle is still out there!

I just saw this on the Windows 8 Bing news feed tonight:

I'm going to assume the Syrian rebel in the photo is holding a VZ-52/57 in 7.62x39, unless they've got a stash of 7.62x45 over there. It appears the bayonet is better served in the fixed, vs. stowed, position.

This little guy has one, too.

My understanding is that Syria took delivery of a bunch of these circa 1954.  It all goes to show that in a civil war, all sorts of toys will show up at the party...
