I don't see why cz stopped making there 550 crf action they sold very well, if it was about money they could have added a few hundred bucks and most wouldn't have cared. The members over on the African hunting forum are up set the 550 is gone, it's very popular over there and is the work horse for the PH's. Word is the 527 will be fazed out soon to.
Barrels are quick change, have to remove the screw on the action once out of the stock, bolt dose lock when on safe. Can be too loaded and the magazine lock is a nice option.
The trail action is aluminum has a collapsible stock like a pdw, the 223 uses ar mags and the 7.62x39 uses bren 2 mags.
A lighter profile barrel would be a nice option too. Get it closer to #5.5 than just over #6.
Would be nice tho cz has always been slow to add cartridges. They do have 6.5 prc the 224 Valkyrie make little sense.
Think there different length actions so t hats nice, barrels are supposed to be quick change so a new barrel maybe available soon.
Is anyone still importing the Interarms MK X rifles. At one time they were well thought of as an inexpensive alternative for a reliable CRF rifle. I've had a couple of those over the years and liked them well enough. They could be a little rough, but with some work weren't bad and were always reliable.
A few years ago the had a updated line of zastava but I haven't seen any imported, think I remember trying to find some for sale but no luck. The cz are much better rifles they last the guys many times longer in the field. I don't see ruger holding on to the 77 much longer they aren't even making a blue and walnut rifle.
The CZ600 trail with telescoping stock looks like it could take over that role. Very interesting.
Well, I guess that makes the two carbines I have (.223 & 7.62x39) something to hold on to for a while.
Wish we could have a suppressor here would be fun, I'm not crazy about the blk out but the gun is nice to have, I'd be tempted to ream it out to 300 hamr.
