Please, if this questions been asked before--I apologize. I was hankering for a 550 CZ and went to their site after yrs of being away and it looks like they have (for the most part) done away with Mauser atyle actions and gone the cheap route with push feeders?? Any\one with more knowledge on this? I find this distressing!:confused :confused:

Just curious, what makes you think they are replacing the 550?
The 550 is all over the CZ USA web site.

I'm not quite sure where you picked up the idea that the CZ550 is a pushfeed rifle (not that I have anything necessarily against pushfeeds).

I have two CZ550 American rifles (admittedly, purchased in 2009 and 2011), one in 6.5x55mm and the other in 7x57mm (neither detachable magazine guns), and both have standard Mauser-type extractors...

I'm assuming (yes, I know...) that all of the CZ550s are the same...

I think that OP meant that CZ will no longer offer the CZ550 American(Disontinued 2013), they will be replaced by the pushfed CZ557.
CZ still has the CZ 550 in the Full Stock, but even those MAY be phased out.


After reading the OP's original post more carefully, I think that you're absolutely right...

Sorry for my confusion...

Thanks for the update info...

I've never been a big fan of detachable magazines in this type of rifle and had always planned on picking up a CZ550 American in .30-06 Spfd to go along with my other two CZ550 rifles...

I guess that I'd better keep my eyes open... :)

I counted 101 of them on Gunbroker alone, what caliber were you looking for?
Damn good Mauser action. That European is but ugly.

Well, now you done it! Gone and bad-mouthed my favorite 6.5 rifle. :love:
You'd probably kick a man's dog too!

That was just mean., I don't know what to say. :facepalm:

For what it's worth, I think that your rifle is beautiful...

Thank you for them kind words Forrest. You truly are a man of discriminatingly good taste, insight and vision.
Makes me feel better already! :smile:

I know you wouldn't kick a man's dog! Unlike some other's here. :whistling:
