CZ 550 American Safari Magnum No. 04211 375 H&H Magnum

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

U.S. styling sets off the CZ, formerly known as the ZKK 602. The mag capacity is five rounds. The rifle's weight was up there, but it was not as heavy as the Ruger. The excellent wood, relatively low price, and excellent performance were most pleasing to us. We'd like a crisper trigger, but loved the single-set feature. We think this is one of the better values in a 375 out there.

The CZ 550 American had a comfortable cheekpiece and a great recoil pad. That 25-inch barrel let it get the most out of the available ammo, and it posted slightly higher velocities for two of the types of test ammo.
Two crossbolts helped keep that nice wood from splitting. The checkering was at least as good as that on the Kimber. The bolt would benefit from lapping, or use, to make it slicker. The 1.5-5X Leupold was about right for this rifle.
Who says big rifles won't shoot? It's mighty rewarding to produce a sub-inch group with a big rifle. The CZ fired this 0.9-inch cluster at 100 yards with Federal ammo.
Prominent center lines on the standard and the folding leaves let the shooter's eye line up the front bead faster and easier. The front sight was mounted in a ring that wrapped the barrel, and the rear was dovetailed into an integral base on the barrel. We liked this setup.
