The ramped rear sight provided white-line graduations for elevation adjustments.
The steel muzzle cap was fixed to the stock and barrel and housed the hooded front sight with a small white bead. The cutout allows sunlight to reach the blade. A button on the front sight allowed the blade to be removed (arrow).
The Mauser-style bolt had a claw extractor for positive feeding and two-lugs with a 90-degree bolt lift. The bolt was brightly polished. The CZís receiver came grooved to accept scope rings (arrow), and 1-inch steel rings were included.
The dark-stained Turkish walnut buttstock had a semi-matte finish highlighting the lines of its traditional Bavarian humpback stock and angular cheekpiece. The checkering was laser cut. The recoil pad was thick and soft. Our team said the CZ felt trim and mounted easily.
The 3-position safety is on the right side. Pushing the tab all the way forward exposed a white dot and locked both the trigger and bolt. One notch backward still showed the dot and allowed the bolt to be operated, but not the trigger. All the way back showed a red dot for Fire.
The shooter emptied the fixed box magazine by pressing the grooved button (arrow), which released the floorplate, dumping rounds smartly.
