Rifles from CZ are among the most sought-after firearms in the world. CZ Rifles
are manufactured from steel billets rather than tubing or plastic, and the barrels
are hammer forged for accuracy and long life. The trigger is adjustable for weight,
and the safety is located above the rear of the bolt and provides a positive firing
pin block. The CZ 550 Rifle embodies aesthetic elegance and ergonomic design.
On closer inspection the heart of the machine shows its time honored features.
The Mauser style claw extractor for positive loading and extraction, and compact
trigger mechanism which can be used as a single stage or a single set trigger.
The CZ 550 has a positive 2-position safety. All CZ 550 rifles feature a classic
square bridge receiver with a 19mm dovetail milled right into the receiver for
the mounting of optics. For accuracy and long life these rifles are fitted with
hammer forged barrels. The CZ 550 Lux and CZ 550 FS rifles are traditional European
style models featuring adjustable open sights and Turkish walnut stock in the
famous Bavarian pattern while CZ 550 American, CZ 550 Varmint and CZ 550 Prestige
are models made specifically for the US market with the American customer in mind
featuring American pattern stock with 18 LPI checkering.
I can\'t say enough good things about this rifle. It\'s lightweight and accurate making it easy to manuver and shoot. Originally bought mine with the intent of it becoming my sons first deer rifle. Mounted a Zeiss 4x scope and its now become my favorite rifle to hunt with. I have really been impressed with the rifle and the caliber. I think one would be hard pressed to come up with a better hog or deer rifle for hunting in central Texas. - T. F.
I have an update to my first review. This rifle can and has shot a 1.5 inch group at 100 yards. At 200 yards, it has shot 2 inch groups for me. I was even surprised to learn that I could hit clay pigeons at 300 yards with this rifle. If you are looking for a very accurate bolt action rifle that shoots 7.62x39mm ammo, this is definitly it. I give a big thumbs up to this rifle and CZ USA. - R. D.
This is a very nice rifle. I put a scope on it and took it to the range the day after I bought it. This gun will easily shoot a 3 inch group at 100 yards. I would highly recommend this gun to anyone who is looking for accuracy with the Russian caliber. I know it was a pleasant change for me after suffering with the inaccuracy of an AK47 rifle. A 6 inch group was the best I could get at 100 yards with the AK47. With the right reloads, I wouldn\'t be surprised if a 2 inch group was possible at 100 yards with this rifle. - R. D.
