Any suggestions on what to do about a CZ 550 american safari magnum rifle that I have a problem with? (other than sell it) I bought a new 550 american safari magnum chambered in 458 Lott that was shipped directly from CZ. When I first opened the box to look at my new rifle my first response was that they sent the rifle chambered for 458 win mag instead of 458 lott. After closer examination I also found 458 Lott crudely written on the barrel. Apparently the factory took the 458 wm barrel off and rechambered it in 458 lott. The first disappointment. After looking the rifle over for any other defects I found that the bolt would bind when opened. Second disappointment! I called the factory in Kansas City, Missouri and spoke to one of their gunsmiths. He asked if I was opening the bolt when the rifle is shouldered or when I had it down in front of me. I inquired why it would matter and his response was that the shooter can exert more upward pressure on the bolt which would cause it to bind. I didn't think it should matter. I'm not going to shoot groundhogs with it! I'm hopefully going to shoot dangerous game with it like cape buffalo, elephant, or brown bear. Animals that don't always run the other way when shot at. And... being that a hunter may become a bit excited when you have a cape buffalo approaching you with the intent of sticking his horns in you and then stomping you to death he may not be thinking "well I had better not exert that much upward pressure or the bolt may bind". The CZ gunsmith said to send it back to the Kansas City factory and he would look at it. I did better than that. I was going on an eastern Kansas spring gobbler hunt so I took the rifle along with me. I went to the KC, Missouri factory and had the gunsmith look at it. He worked on a bit and brought it back to me to check it. Still wasn't much better. He tried to smooth the bolt more but it still bound up. He said to leave the rifle with him. Several weeks after returning home from my kansas hunt I received the rifle. Still no better than before. This same gunsmith also stated that the CZ rifle action is modeled after the Mauser action but being that Mauser still has the patent, CZ could not make their action exactly like Mauser's. I took it to the range anyways and found that the rifle shot about 14 inches high and 10 inches to the left at 50 yards using the 100 yard leaf sight. I'm just wandering if I might have gotten a reject or something? Obviously it wasn't sighted it before it left the factory. Now I'm very disappointed with my first and most likely last CZ firearm. Anybody else have any problems with CZ or is mine just a fluke? If CZ is trying to become a competitor in the US firearm market I would think that they would have tried harder to correct the rifle bolt problem. Any suggestions??
