    Good point on the CRF. I bought a CZ a couple of months ago. Never having a CRF action before, I tried to load a single cartridge into the chamber, but the bolt wouldn’t close. I guess one has to chamber a round from the magazine. Not being critical, just different than my Browning push feed?

    I might be wrong, but I believe the .375 and .338 x bolts are 6.75 lbs., same as my .338 a bolt? Mine has a walnut stock, but I believe the weight is the same for walnut or composite?

    The X-bolt Safari that weighed 7 3/4 pounds is on their discontinued list.

    The X-bolt Medallion Open Sights is listed at 7 pounds.

    The X-bolt Stainless Stalker Open Sights has also been continued in .375. It showed a weight of 6 pounds 13 oz.

    You can load a single cartridge into the chamber. All you have to do is open up the extractor on the CRF . Have a competent gunsmith file the bolt face a little so that it can slip over the rim of the cartridge but if your gunsmith screws up , you've got a destroyed gun :(

    Yeah, I guess I wouldn’t try that. Just have to get use to loading from the magazine. No BIG issue really.

    Discontinued! Say it ain’t so! I’ve always wanted one. Guess I’ll have to sell a couple of guns and find/buy one?

    Some CRF you can squeeze the center of the extractor into the bolt and this will allow it to slip of the case base. Some you can not do this on. Have not tried it with the CZ.
