    My new Left Hand CZ 550 375 H & H came in from AHR today. I am very satisfied the the fit, finish and function. It holds 6 in the magazine. The AHR trigger is very nice as is the AHR three position safety. It is the first left hand CZ Wayne has upgraded.

    Yesterday I bought a factory CZ in 9.3 by 62 for my wife. It is pretty rough especially compared to the AHR upgraded rifle. It will be headed to Wayne soon.

    I also received my McMillan stock for MRC 458 Lott. It seems to fit perfect. It holds three down plus in in the chamber.

    I will post pictures soon and have a range report on Saturday.

    A new safe will be delivered on Thursday. It has been a really good rifle week.

    It's tough for us lefties. Most large caliber bolt guns are for right handers and the two trigger set up on double rifles is designed for righties too. Maybe CZ has the answer for us southpaws but I think I will choose the Ruger no.1.

    I am glad that CZ has come out with a left hand action. Over the years I have seen quite a few PH's packing them and always figured I would get one if they ever started putting the bolt on the proper side. I see they are only making them in .375 so far, hopefully that will change to include something heavier. As much as I would like one I cant justify a fourth .375 in my gun safe. I hope yours works out for you as I no the PH's that I have hunted with swear by them.

    One more thing I forgot to mention going to Michael's post when he referred to left hand doubles with rite hand triggers. You should have a look at left hand Searcy's the front trigger is on the left side and fires the left barrel first. My 500 is a true left hand rifle.

    Mike,
    I'd love to see some pictures of AHR's work if you get a free minute to post some. I'm going to send of my CZ to them more likely than not in the late winter to have it worked over and smoothed out. Thanks.

    Brandon

    Thanks for the pics, Mike. My biggest qualm with my new rifle is the tiny, somewhat difficult to see, front sight post. The fiber optics look like they solve that issue.

    Does the 3-pos safety change out the entire back end of the bolt?? The rear of your bolt looks quite different than mine (I posted pictures of it on my "which caliber for me" thread).

    While I also like the barrel band swivel and intend to have it added to my rifle, what practical purpose does it serve?

    Sorry for all of the questions!

    I like about a 3/32 front sight, preferably white, I have not decided whether I like the fiber or not.

    I do not know what the bolt looked like before the mod, I did not see the rifle until AHR was finished.

    The barrell band serves three purposes

    1) It looks cool

    2) On a heavy kicker the front sling stud can come in in contact with your hand and cause some pain.

    3) Since the band is closer to the muzzle the rifle is actually carried lower while using a sling. Makes it a little easier in the thick stuff.

    Well, I think you've sold me on the AHR package 2 for my rifle. Is the fiber optic standard in this package or did you request it? What was their turn around time like?

    He can install just about any sight you want. The NECG Masterpiece is tough to beat, the fiber optic or white is no problem.

    turnaroud was 6 to 8 weeks. If Wayne gives you a delivery he does a good job of meeting the date.

    I just now ordered a left hand DGR from Wayne in .458 Lott. I had contacted you a few months ago about AHR then based on your info I got in touch with Wayne. I orderd the DGR in .458 Lott with the checkering up grade and the QD Peep site with QD tally rings, plus a kick killer in the butt. Hopefully the wood will be nice and dark with at least a little figure in the butt stock. It will be a long four months waiting for it to arrive.
