    Since mid-2011? Yep - you got it bad. Very nice. I love my CZs.

    I gotta ask, though - where'd you find that rear aperture for your Lux, as well as that Ultra Target? Both just got added to my list.

    You certainly have the CZ bug!

    That is a marvelous collection of very nice rifles, though. I'm a bit envious!

    The sights on the Lux and Ultra Lux (target) are Brno standard match sights set. They come both front and rear.

    The nice guy named Denny imported the sights from Europe. There are a lot of discussion about the sights on rimfirecentral.com.

    I have added Anschutz adjustable iris and hood to the rear aperture.

    I would like to shoot the 375 H&H, want one but really can't justify it as I seldom get to hunt brown bears.

    Gorgeous!

    Any way of getting ahold of this "Denny" with the sights? If you've got a thread on the rimfire sight that would be great. Can he be bribed with salmon and/or gold coins?

    You will love the CZ Safari in .375 H&H. It tames the recoil very effectively, has some great irons and is tough as nails. Nice balance in the hand, too.

    Those are not nice, but beautiful. Now I am turning green with envy.

    Use them in good health.

    The 550 FS is my most favorite. :D

    It is fast and easy to aim off hand. Super balance and shoot really well. Excellent fit and finished. Love it !!!!

    Spectacular! I love my 452 FS in .22 Magnum, and want to add the 550 FS in .308. Congratulations on a great set of rifles!

    All the slings are from huntsling.com.

    Here is my 550 FS sporting the sling. :)

    You have some truly beautiful rifles there, especially the full stock models. Well done on a great job putting together such a fine collection.
