Interesting also that he harps on the safety being on the wrong side for a right hander, in the case of the "BRUNO" and the Mark X. I dont get that. A right hander wants his safety where it can be used with the shooting hand, not the off hand. Where would it be better placed? Odd...
I have 1 rifle with the safety on the opposite side. It's only a .22 lr so very small action. Once you get used to it is actually quite effective. Right under your thumb as the rifle comes up.
That said it's the only one I've ever seen.

My thumb would not reach that without shifting my grip, which isnt required when its on the tang or the right side.

I would strongly advice to rechamber to .458 Lott, not because there is something wrong with .458Win. but the trouble is that the cartridges slam around in that cavernous magazine. On mine the 5th round detonated in the magazine when I fired round 4..the primer touched a small dent in the rear of the magazine...bullet went up and broke the (solid steel) mag. follower, cracked the stock and bent the magazine...luckily no harm done to me.. I have heard of similar episodes so not unique to me..

But otherwise splendid rifles....I have one in .375H&H and the former is becoming a .500 Jeffery..

Than God for crossbolts or the action might have given you a craniotomy.

Also Brno 21/22 rifles have safety on the LH side of the shroud. My thumb seems to be right there when getting ready to fire so it seems to make sense to me to have safety in that location. But it's all about fit and muscle memory. Shooting many different setups, makes me forget which is which sometimes and makes for interesting times. I immediately want to sell everything but one design so that does not happen, LOL.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
