You stated it has seen no use, is the factory red colored grease cleaned off? Do you have the box and paperwork? Authenticity letter?

Oh I know what the rifle is, no question there. They are beautiful guns and I know them fairly well. However part of the value is having the original box and paperwork, how much of the value I am not sure, I suppose it depends upon an individuals opinion.

Good luck selling it.

It was a .470 Capstick in the Rhino not a Nitro Express. There was a full set not to long ago on GI for 15k I believe. I thought that was a fine buy.
Beautiful rifle. Why can't you take it to Iceland?

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
