Hi all, a few months ago I purchased a brand new cz 550 safari classic in 450 Rigby. Today was my first opportunity to get it out to the range. I load up some hornady DXG shells, take careful aim at 25 yards, squeeze the trigger and click. No bang. I inspect the cartridge after a 30 second wait as I figured it was maybe a light primer strike. Upon inspection there is no primer strike whatsoever. I pull the bolt apart and it looks like the firing pin tip was ground completely off, no evidence of a break, just a smooth shiny surface . Looks like I’ll be calling the folks at CZ tomorrow about a replacement. Has anyone else ever experienced something like this?
