When ordered through my local shop it was ordered as a American Safari. I saw pictures of some with cross bolts and some without. When it showed up it was that rifle. I am very happy with the rifle it's far nicer then excepted. The wood I think is very nice. Fit and finish is exceptional. Only machine marks are back by the safety. None in the moving components.
the CZ 550 in 375 H&H is probably the perfect intro rifle into large bore African hunting cartridges! it was my first and wasn't replaced until I picked up a Winchester M70 in 416 RM.
just remember the big bore addiction starts with the 375 H&H! once its got you hooked your more then welcome to join us in the big bore addiction group.
Matt is a great addict though - he doesn't try and get you to save yourself, but rather to immediately try and drag you down with him. Ask me and my .458 Lott how I know this.
both the 500 Jeffery and the 505 Gibbs are banned in Spain for being incomprehensibly rounds of war by our government
Congrats on a good purchase- looks excellent.
I started with a CZ550 in .375 H&H.
Then I bought a CZ550 in 458 win mag.
Then I bought a CZ550 in 458 Lott.
Guess I must be due for my next one...
If I could now would buy a rifle in .50 caliber, but in Spain both the 500 Jeffery and the 505 Gibbs are banned in Spain for being incomprehensibly rounds of war by our government.
Well with a 500 Jeffery shooting a 570g solid at 2300 fps, if you could just get those bad guys to line up, it would probably do a damn good job.
