Anyone own/shoot one of these yet? Am looking at the .308 Kevlar Varmint CZ 550...also Laminate looks nice---price looks good..expecially compared to Kimber

i bought one when i got back from iraq in 05. it is one of the best guns i own, the trigger is awesome, polygonal rifling (chrono's faster than any other barrel i own), i am currently switching stocks out for one of joel russo's A5L laminate stocks. plus a detachable mag system. very accurate and great rifle for the price.

they use a CZ made mag, they are kind of hard to find. 30-40 bucks at midway usa. i just bought 4x CZ 750 10rd mags, they work in the 550 also. they were 45.00 each. not bad since i pay 85 for my AI mags

Thanks, Im looking at this rifle and the Kimber 8400 Tactical...the CZ is $750ish--the Kimber is $1500-$1800 ish---so far the CZ is looking REALLY good..I luv the Kimber but the price is very high..I know you get your moneys worth on either..10 round mags are very attractive from a tactical standpoint..may have to get that CZ!
