I am looking at picking up a CZ 550 Sunday. It is marked Safari Clasic and .458 Win Mag. I have no experience with CZ's but cannot find any listing for the Safari Classic being chambered in .458 Win Mag.

Book I have lists the Safari Classic as a "Custom Grade Safari Magnum" but 458 Win Mag is not listed as a choice. Other than caliber the description is accurate.

Anyone know anything about these rifles? Book says they are "built per individual custom order". Is it possible this was custom built in .458 Win Mag?

It lists the .458 in the American Safari Magnum. But not the Safari Classic.

If you didn't know this already, if you get one chambered in .458 Lott, it can shoot both the Lott round AND .458 Win Mag, so it's the more versatile, preferred choice.

It's a trade deal for the .458 Win Mag. Probably would never buy one but I already have a good supply of .458 Win Mag ammo that I picked up when I purchased a lot containing several different types of ammo.

Just picked up the rifle. It is apparently the 550 Safari Magnum. It looks identicls to the one on CZ's site except it doesn't have the screw through the stock between the trigger guard and bolt. It has the forward to fire safety of the newer CZ's. Stamped Safari Classic .458 Win Mag.

It's unfired and came with a set of dies and 55 rounds of new brass. I already have 60 rounds, (gave 60 to my brother) of a 120 piece lot I purchased. Should be plenty as we don't do much elephant hunting here in Arizona.
