CZ 550

| Monday, March 14, 2011 | 0 comments

CZ 550 is a rifle for civilian or military from the Czech Republic. The CZ 550 rifle resembles the Mauser 98 rifle series, though it is not an exact copy. The CZ-550 is a bolt-action hunting rifle series manufactured by Česká Zbrojovka Uherský Brod (CZ). Since the CZ 550 magnum size action can be chambered for super magnum cartridges some elephant gun wildcat cartridges were tested and others specially designed with and for this action.

The operating mechanism of the CZ 550 series is based on the Mauser M 98 controlled-feed bolt action system though it is not an exact copy. The original Mauser M 98 is a simple, strong, safe, and well-thought-out design that inspired other military and hunting/sporting rifle designs that became available during the 20th century. For the CZ 550 series the action system is machined out of high-grade steel. It also features a double square bridge for mounting a telescopic sight.
