A few moments ago I was notified that I won a gunbroker Auction for a ZKK 602 in 375 H&H. I have been hearing / reading other AH members touting them. I guess I'll soon find out for my self how good a rifle they are. I have a question though. Regarding the "backwards" safety. Can they be converted to "normal" i.e. back is safe and forward is fire? If so, who do you recommend to do the work? Alternatively should I just get used to it, and keep the safety as is? I have been looking for a ZKK 602 for quite a while. However every time one became available I'd just purchased another rifle and or had a bid in on another rifle and couldn't afford to win two auctions back to back.

His work is good but br prepared to wait.

I envy you Shootist. In Poland ZKK602 is difficult to access.

@Shootist43 I was watching that same rifle and thought about throwing a bid in there but I have another project draining the funds! :D

You got a sweet deal on that one!

TTundra, I hope so. I'm hoping that it cleans up without too much difficulty.

I have a few, but not enough. At least it isn't another 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser. All kidding aside, I've neither seen or heard anything bad about the BRNO ZKK 602. In fact quite the opposite. Besides the other two BRNO(s) in my care a 7x57 and a combination gun 12 Ga / 7x 65R were getting lonesome.

IvW, this purchase was mostly your doing. Over the past several years your very high regard for the
BRNO ZKK 602 has been mentioned many times. Since I value your opinions very much I had no choice but to get one. Rest assured that if that rifle ever makes it to Africa it will be stoked with 300 GR. Swift A Frames. The 602(s) are a rare commodity in the States, so it took me a while. Did you have trigger work done on your rifles? I heard that smooth triggers were not BRNO's long suit.

+1 on Wayne at AHR.
Did a #2 upgrade on my CZ and I love it.

Congrats. Welcome to the club. I picked one up, or was told to buy it, about 35yrs ago. If it's the original brown vented pad be prepared to replace it as they become "kibble" after a while. Action will probably be rough and need to be worked. I used to sit in front of the TV watching hockey, racking the action over and over and over..........again. Used to drive my mum nuts! Pretty smooth now. Refinished the stock in an oil finish as they originally came in a dark brown chocolate coloured gak. Just need to replace the pad.

Before you modify the safety or trigger, give it a chance to prove itself. I really like my ugly straight trigger. Also, the safety is very positive and reassuring. I like how it mechanically locks down the bolt.

Congratulations!

Welcome to the Club !
Here's my :
1) Recently BRNO ZKK - 602 in .375 HH Magnum . Strangely , the Gun holds 7 rounds in it . 6 in the Magazine and 1 in the chamber ( as opposed to 5 in the Magazine and one in the chamber ). What a miraculous and unexpected bonus :D
2 ) Custom .350 Rigby Magnum built on a ZKK- 602 Action . Holds 5 in the Magazine and 1 in the chamber
Someday , by God , l will Build an 11.2 × 72 mm Schuler on a ZKK-602 action , if l ever succeed in reviving the cartridge .
Long live the ZKK-602 :D

Welcome to the club, the 602 is just a great rifle. The safety is very easy to get use to, give it a try for a month or so before you change it would be my advise.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
