The ones I saw marketed as DeLuxe were more Weatherby-like - with a contrasting foreend and a Monte-Carlo stock. That was whhen I was in RSA. I have only seen the "Bavarian" stock with the Schnabel on the CZs.
Forgive me for sounding like I'm ignorant, but those stocks don't look like any Brno ZKK stocks I've ever seen. They look more like the CZ stocks that have been retrofitted. probably not, since the 458L also has one with the Bavarian style buttstock.
Is that normal in Europe?
I can't really talk about the CZ rifles, but I can talk about the elder brother - the Brno ZKK60x series.
I have 4 of these rebarelled to various calibres - 2 x 601s converted to 7x57 and .260 Rem, a .375H&H in 602 and a 600 in 9.3x62.

Al, I'm going to throw a hand-grenade into the henhouse here and tell you what my family used to do.

What was the nearest town, BTW? I lived in NW for many years and wonder where you guys were.
If you happened to be imagining that story, then you were somehow broadcasting it to me as well. :)
What the people are talking about here with the 458WM and the Weatherbies is different.
Freebore in the 458WM means that the bullet leaves the case and still has to traverse +- 1 cm of chamber...
I am the crippled cousin, and I was there.
Adrian is spot on with his review.
I still dream of that Eland steak dinner Adrian spoke about. One of my top 10 and I turned 60 this year.
Apart from endorsing them as enthusiastically as Adrian has, I have to say the Mitsubishi Triton bakkie is a...
It's the fault of Western Civilization - you guys hated us guys in South Africa. :cautious:
It was really that sanctions were biting, and very little ammo was getting through, and that ammo was really, really expensive. If you had a .308, you could probably "score" military ammo, but it was...
