Re: Any opnions on a CZ 550 varmit in 308?

The CZ has its points, nice trigger to start with. You know how crappy 'factory ' triggers can be. It has those integral dovetails for scope mounting, too. The FN is a Winchester, trigger adjustments are the same and all the aftermarket fit. The ones I've seen come with a 20 MOA rail made by Near Mfg. The rifle can be had with 2 or 3 barrel lengths and the barrel is fluted. I understand they shoot real well (for factory rifles). And, the best part is they are made in the S.E. United States (SC,, I think)(same plant the new Win.70 is made in).

I had one for ages and used it to cull red hinds on the hills of Scotland. I bought it after a recommendation from a professional stalker who i respect. A good honest and accurate rifle with which you won't have to go through the ******* around you will with a remington or others - replacing the crappy trigger or bendy stock.

It was cheap enough that i never cringed when dragging it through rough terrain, over rocks or bouncing around in the back of the landrover.

Buy it, you won't regret it. I past mine on to a young stalker who's just starting his training and is serving him well.

I own it. CZ 550 Varminter .308 super accurate rifle, worth every penny and far better quality than any remington or winchester.
