I bought a CZ 550 in 458 Lott/458 Win Mag for the Elephant part of my Big 5 Safari this year. Still looking for a double but I have a custom .375 H&H Mag. that is a great gun and originally belonged to my uncle you gave it to my when he died and I always considered it to be a special honor, since every other gun in his collection was sold when he got sick and neededthe money. Anyway, I bought the CZ from gun broker and it arrived yesterday. I figured I would need to take it to the gunsmith for some work. I figured an action polish, new trigger and sights at a minimum. I cannot belive it but the trigger is awesome. It breaks perfectly at 2.75 lbs with no pull, sticking or anything like it. The action is smooth as well.The only issue is when its fully opened to eject the shell there is a slight lift, but that seems to be the case with all long action bolts the length of a 458. the sights - well - CZ really missing the mark on that. They stink. New sights are a must - I do not even know why they bothered. The wood is good, the gun has a nice balance, the action engaged and the trigger sets very well (I have an original Mauser action on an Enfield P 17 frame and the CZ is almost as good). Does anyone else have a CZ 550 and have you had similair experiences? I was really expecting a gun that would need work - except for the sights (and I might matte the barrel for African DG hunting) I like it. I would like to hear from the CZ owners out there how they perform on the range and hold up in the buch?
