Looking for some help with a 1994 Brno in 375 H&H
There is no model stamped on the rifle anywhere so all I have is the year.
Beautiful piece of wood looks like more than the ordinary CZ / BRNO
Safety on the right with back to fire forward for safe
What model would this be ?
Opinions pros and cons.
Thanks in advance

Sounds like the 602 all right, but odd that it isn't so marked, never seen one that wasn't. How about a pic? Excellent rifle by the way.

My zkk 600 has the model stamped on the front receiver ring just under the CZ emblem.

When you take the scope off the model will be stamped on the front receiver. Some of the Brno's had great wood. I saw pics of a 602 that Joel Dorleac had restored, it was amazing.

Great rifles, the 602's !
Congrats, you found a beaut.
Would make a good platform for a custom if you don't fit the current stock, otherwise go ahead and hunt it as it is and make some memories.

This barrel is 22 inch - which seems short.
What would it have been from factory ?

Great rifle. Never sell it. Hard to find and the action is a beauty.

What Code 4 said. Looks like it has done some work, would be good if it could talk. The previous owner may of been using it in thick country so shortened the barrel.

Is there a way to change the safety around to work what would be normal for me - fire forward safe back ?
Secondly I read a lot about the trigger needing work, can someone elaborate
Thanks all

Gentry might make a Model 70 style shroud for ZKK rifles.

Agree that under the fwd mount will be the model stamp. As far as the trigger goes, how does it feel to you? It only needs work if you don't like it. It may have a set feature, push it fwd and see if clicks, if so its set, but one doesn't have to use that feature if not wanted. Front sight would have been banded as issued so surely was cut. Too short for my tastes but 25 is pretty long too. The safety can be dealt with too, don't recall how but some have done it. Were it mine I would give it to a smith to do so it is still safe to use. Triple River Gunsmiths work on these rifles.

Fr8liner, the ZKK 602 is a real gem...a magnum Mauser for a song..I hunt with two, one in .375H&H and one in .458Win. (will become a .458 Lott..). Both mine are restocked with more straight stocks...that reduces muzzle jump significantly...that bavarian stock tends to "roll" during recoil and produce muzzle jump..

I also recommend to rebuild the bolt to a M70 safety....I did that to my .458 and the .375 will follow..

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
