I purchased this about a year ago from a local dealer, who consigned it from a fellow who made it his avocation to build rifle stocks. In this case, he acquired this CZ 550 American in 9.3x62 and did it up as a British sporter. He was going to make a trip to Africa, but that didn’t happen. As shown in the pictures, he reshaped the factory stock to include a pancake cheekpiece and shortened forearm. I’m not sure if he installed the barrel-band swivel or if that was done at the factory. He did install a Ruger steel grip cap, like those provided on No. 1 rifles. The finish, per a letter he wrote about the work, is a poly/oil blend. It is was also glass bedded with a floated barrel. The glass bedding is cleanly done. The trigger was tuned and is crisp at about 3 pounds. Feeding is smooth. He also did some load development and provided a box of handloads; those are Barnes TTSX bullets propelled by Varget. I shot one group with these (see last picture). I had mounted a 4x scope. My eyes are not what they used to be and with more magnification it probably would have been a better group. At least that’s the case with my other rifles. The letter said the gun was a good shooter and so it appears to be. It’s a fairly light rifle. I’d guess it’s about 7.25 pounds. The length of pull over the red Decelerator pad is just over 13.5 inches. The rifle is just as clean inside and out as it appears in the pictures. About the only thing to note is that he moved the rear sling swivel and filled the previous hole. I included that in the pictures. If Africa becomes a possibility for me again, I’ll probably take my favorite rifle, a No. 1 in 300 H&H, and something bigger suitable for buffalo.
