Hard to find rifle especially in this caliber. I have its twin in 7x57 and used to own the American version in this cal. I really like this model due to its having sights, two stock bolts and a second recoil lug up front as standard in this cal. Having pretty nice wood is also nice. And of all things this one has something I have never encountered on a CZ rifle before. A 3 position safety! Its legit too and it works perfectly. Anyone else ever see a CZ with a 3 position safety?

Nice wood for sure!!!

I know that AHR puts three position safeties on CZs. So I would say that the safety is after market. Never heard of one coming that way from the factory.

I have a 9.3x62 with a genuine Mauser action it has a side safety and a lovely clean 1/14 twist Swedish barrel - it works just fine for me.

My CZ 550FS chambered for the 9.3x62 came from the factory with a 3 position safety.

According to the CZ-USA website: " This safety is unique in the CZ line to the FS and Carbine Composite models."

all of my CZ 550's have 3 position safety's , I however had them installed after market as I prefer them .

So let me ask this. What is it about the three position safety that everyone likes so much? Is it simply the additional safety and easy ability to see if it is on safe, not to mention working the bolt with the safety on?

Reason I ask is that i grew up using one, but when I got my CZ I've found that for pure on/off I like the two position better. when I shoulder the rifle the safety automatically comes off so easily. I will admit that I'm constantly checking that safety physically because you can't just easily glance, so I do get that point.

Perhaps as above, its an AHR change or someone took one off a FS rifle. Either way I like it but never had any problem with just a 2 position safety either. This stock style is not for everyone but despite liking the looks of the more classic style better, this one shoulders very well and with its long 14.25" LOP, it fits me very well.

"Love at first sight" didn't exactly describe the Bavarian style butt stock. However, after I shot the rifle a few times I have to say I do love the ergonomics.
It does shoulder and point exceptionally well with both the factory irons and scope with medium rings.
Quickly has become one of my favorite rifles, and calibers.

I have the CZ 550 Mannlicher stock version in 9.3x62. Love it. Great calibre. Nice handling rifle. It's one of those calibre's that no matter what you shoot through it the POI is virtually the same.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
