Good to know, was not aware!
Usually Ben Avery.
Long way from my home in Chandler.
We sell a lot on GB. Some sellers are just stubborn and don't want to be bothered any more. Check his feedback. If any negatives, I would pass. I would politely press a bit more...
The Guys has 35 transactions and is rated A+. I have 17 transactions on GB maybe half were Firearms check the guys feed back, I had a CZ in 375HH a bit on the heavy side scoped and loaded but a nice Rifle
I emailed AHR and asked if they could tell if they worked on the CZ and got this response immediately.
'It's hard to tell from that one picture if we worked on it or not. It still has the factory trigger and I can't make out what safety it has.
Give them a call and get some more info. Does it have the Winchester style safety? Is the hole in the bolt knob filled? If so, is there some engraving on the end of the bolt knob? If so, then pretty good chance we we worked on it.'
I emailed the seller after he replied that he had no AHR paperwork:
'Much appreciated. Last questions - Does it have the Winchester style safety? Is the hole in the bolt knob filled? If so, is there some engraving on the end of the bolt knob? Finally, ok for local pickup?'
Got this reply -
'Has 2 position factory safety....not Winchester. Bolt has hole....not engraved...as from factory. We are not a retail outlet. Once we have received payment for the rifle we will schedule a mutually convenient time to meet, do the NICs check, etc.
Total that will be due: $ 1,099 (Includes NICs check)
92 AZ sales tax
$ 1,191 USPS money order only.'
Sale price stated is $110 more than on GB. Maybe this gun is a good deal, but I'm going to give it a pass.
Bail out. Wayne at AHR does not bullshit. Seller is at best misinformed, at worst misrepresenting the rifle.
I had Wayne do some work on my CZ that I sold and also have a full on AHR custom 375. Just because it doesn't have a win safety and his trigger doesn't mean Wayne didn't do some work on it my opinion. He has most likely tweaked on thousand of CZ's and without the original owner's name and Serial No it is unlikely he could tell without seeing the gun. If I was in the market for a CZ, I would buy it and quit asking question's, guy has a perfect GB rating, it's only a thousand, the going rate for a standard CZ 550. I have a friend who is a lookee lou that has been watching the same gun. I told him the same thing, he shot my old Cz and has seen my Custom AHR, loves them both. Just my 2 centavo's
Hi Charlie, when we talked on the phone you didn’t own a double yet. What did you buy? It’s in my future plans to buy one as well!
Merkel 470 Nitro Express!
A double is the dream!
Update - picked up an as new (never fired outside the factory), mid-90's (New Haven) Model 70 Super Express Classic in .375 H&H. Full paperwork, original box, essentially no different than the day it left the factory. It's enroute to my smith to accurize the trigger and whatever else needs to be done, but that's about it. I'm pretty excited to see what it can do.
Congrats! If you're a hand loader, I have a few loads you may like to try.
I don't handload. Would like to learn how one of these days, but in the meantime I'm a factory ammo guy.
You should be very happy with that rifle. All of my Mod. 70s have been good shooters.
Congrats on the M70, I have several in the pre 64 Custom configuration, great choice!!
For what it’s worth, I bought a gun from this seller 2 years ago. It was a CZ550 in 458 Lott, advertised as almost new in the box. When I sent it to AHR it turned out the barrel was bent and I had to stand the cost of a new one.
The seller is retired Army, a pretty decent guy, but he doesn’t know crap about CZ rifles in my opinion. I almost bought this rifle for my wife, but after numerous questions that he couldn’t answer I walked away. He sometimes accepts the word of the people who trade in rifles as gospel and he doesn’t know enough to ask questions, he simply parrots what he has been told.
Good to know. That rifle still for sale, maybe one of those too good to be true things…
The one I had held 5 down, in the Rigby mine holds 4 down others three down. Depends on the Magazine box apparently. Those with a 458/Lott box hold one less then those with a 375H&H box, I am told.
Think about 375 in Sako 85 model with a stainless steel barrel. Beautiful rifles!!
