CZ 550 lux in 7X57
« on: August 21, 2009, 10:00:15 AM »
I need to find a CZ 550 lux in 7X57. I am not talking about the full length stock version...just the one with the higher stock comb. Where can I find one of these and or are they imported into the US. Any help on this will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Chance

Hi Chance,

I don't have good news for you. I'm quite sure CZ no longer makes the 550 rifle in 7x57 caliber, regardless of model. Take a look at CZ-USA website: http://cz-usa.com/

The parent company in the Czech Republic has a new website (www.czub.cz) that is not fully operational yet. It is not yet possible to see the list of calibers for each model. But I remember that their old site didn't list any 7x57 earlier this year.  I know, because I've been looking for one too. They listed the 8x57, 6.5x55 and 9.3x62, if you like the metric calibers. Unless I'm wrong, you'll have to search on the used market if you really want a 7x57.

I can't understand why they discontinued it though.  Very nice light caliber in my opinion.  Sales were probably too low.  Good luck with your search !

Luc  ;)

Thanks...I know there brochure says they do or did produce one but the website as you mentioned doesn't. Oh, well...I will just have to look for a used one. Are there any good CZ gunsmiths around?
