 I picked it up at Gander Mountain, as people are buying up their guns. It was a painful painful wait though .

I'd do ti today, but need more ammo, no irons on teh American, and I need to mount the NEW BURRIS MTAC 3.5-10 I bought at GM for $203 OTD.  So... advise on mounts - need to be 30mm. https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/615166/warne-permanent-attachable-ring-mounts-cz-527-16mm-dovetail?cm_mmc=pf_ci_google-_-Optics%20-%20Scope%20Rings%2C%20Bases%2C%20Mounting%20%26%20Accessories-_-Warne-_-615166&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI6OWb3a7S1QIVBYtpCh07ngjfEAQYBCABEgK9y_D_BwE

Would CZ made mounts be better?

Anything else to know?  The MTAC was the last good glass they had (wish I looked the other day).  But the reviews are great, I know Burris is super quality and maybe an underrated scope even at $400.

I think the CZ mounts look better, but they are industrial strength heavy. I've gotten where I use the Warne mounts on most of my 527s. They're plenty sturdy, and lighter.

I stopped by Gander Mountain, all that was left was black rifles and shotguns.   I left.

I bought a scope base from DIP in Idaho.  It mounts on the CZ  and is just a picitinny rail.  Then I get the appropriate Warne rings with the picitinny mount..  Works likea charm and there are no bolt clearance issues..   Congrats on the 550, I have had one in 243 for several years...
