See a lot of posts fro serious African hunters that are shooting the CZ 550. Truthfully, I always thought, for no particular reason other than price, that they were less than great guns. But obviously that cannot be true, or so many people would not have them. I just finally looked at one in a shop and I liked its simplicity. I am still stuck on an extra gun for my long safari and I am now seriously considering a CZ 550. Can those that have them comment on the pro's and con's. THey are not perfect so I would appreciate hearing about what's right and what could be improved. For instance, on the one I was handling, the gunsmith would need to polish the action better for DG hunting, slightly sticky for cycling rounds in a dangerous situation. F Feelings between the .416 and .458? I know I just opened a can of worms but as I have said in nearly every post, I am starting my African hunting ventures with back to back single season safaris for the Big 5. I have a lot of questions. My PH is great at answering everything but I also like the breath of answers I get on this site - it's a good, and serious - group. I appreciate the constructive - no-bashing approach. Looking forward to what you CZ owners think.
