Different action and barrel serial numbers - typical?
« on: August 26, 2016, 11:28:50 PM »
I have a CZ 455 lux with matching serial numbers and just received a 455 Varmint with differing serial numbers on the action and barrel (documents for action and fluted barrel from CZ match the rifle).

Is the serial number mismatch common? Appreciate any insights!

According to reports it isn't that unusual.

but not the ability.

I emailed CZ and asked the same question. I was told that at times demand is greater than supply and so barrels are switched at the factory to meet demand. Nothing to worry about.
