Re: CZ 550 Ultimate Hunting Rifle

I was at the Shot Show,but sorry to say I was unaware of this gun at the time.I've since heard the gun will retail for around $2K.Personally,if I were going to spend $2k+ on a hunting rifle,I'd rather spend it on a full custom built rifle made by someone like Defensive Edge or Kirby Allen.

The CZ USA website has a PDF price list with this at $3,150 MSRP. It says that it comes with the Nightforce scope that is shown on it. It also is listed as 'guaranteed MOA' out to 1000 yards.

Re: CZ 550 Ultimate Hunting Rifle

I'm curious about the 1 moa @ 1000 yards accuracy guarantee. Especially when the manufacturer has no control over the ammo and shooting techniques customers use. So I'm going to ask them how they claim that accuracy level.

Set triggers and hammer forged barrels for best accuracy? Something isn't right, here.

I'll post their explanations for all to read.......

Way overpriced forwhat you get.You can geta custom rifle for cheaper then that and it will shoot circles around it.

I like the way you think!! One of our reps is also the CZ rep. He was in a few months ago pitching this thing at us. I thought it was the most assanine idea I had ever heard. I wonder what their return % will be?
