The CZ 600 American has dropped in the US and for those that aren’t familiar the 600 series replaced the extremely popular CZ 527 and 557 series, luckily the new 600 series has lived up to its predecessors. The 600 series already has a large number of variants but its always good to have options and the new walnut stock provides an option for those that like traditional hunting rifles.
Its currently available in 223, 243, 270, 30-06, 308, 6.5 and 7.62×39. The 308 version weighs in at 3.5kg, making it a good weight for carrying in the field. The cold hammer forged barrel helps the CZ 600 American achieve its guaranteed sub-MOA accuracy out of the box. Other noted features are listed below:
- User-adjustable trigger pull weight (CZ patent)
- All metal components treated with CZ’s patented, extremely durable anti-corrosion finish
- Symmetrical AMERICAN-style stock made of Turkish walnut
- Steel receiver with a Remington 700-type mounting interface
- The bolt can be safely removed without manipulating the trigger and disengaging the safety
- Thin profile, cold hammer forged barrel
- 60° bolt handle angle allows for fast reloads
- Locking, double stack magazine
- Unique bolt system ensures reliable feeding, even during rapid
The CZ 600 AMERICAN is a modern, American-style bolt-action centerfire rifle that’s equipped with a beautifully crafted Turkish walnut stock with a fleur-de-lis on the grip. Available in a wide range of calibers, from 223 Rem. to 300 Win. Mag., it is ready to meet the needs of a wide range of hunters and sport shooters.
The expanding 600 series from CZ continue to provide great value options for hunters. If it falls in your price point don’t hesitate to check one out at your local gun shop. I’m not entirely sure I like the walnut bolt knob but it might grow on me!
