Any CZ Firearm Owners??

Curious who here owns a CZ guns and your experiences?

My first CZ experience was a CZ 550FS(Full stock 6.5 Swedish Mauser) which got me hooked on CZ's excellent quality and value for the dollar. I have since bought a CZ452(22LR, CZ97B(45acp) and a CZ712(12ga Semi).

I owned 452 and 455 rimfires.They were pretty guns that shot well but I hated the reverse safety.Since I had kids,learning to shoot,I got rid of them.I also won a CZ bobwhite at a ruffed grouse society banquet.No complaints with that one.

Bought my son a 455 scout 22lr. Nice gun but also do not like the safety.

Why are you guys complaining about that safety? Think about how many game animals that saved because we couldn't get it off.

My beef with the safety concerns young kids just learning.You let them put thousands of rounds through a rimfire and then turn around and give them a centerfire where the safety works exactly the opposite.It gave me the willies even thinking about it.Otherwise,they're nice guns.

I agree with you. I was hoping someone would come out with a kit to reverse it. It is the one negative aspect of a very fine rifle. Fortunately there are not many centerfire rifles with an opposite style safety except for Model 70s, older modified Mausers and some Rugers.

My kids shoot Kimber rifles with a three position safety.I sold the CZ's and bought a couple Ruger 77/22s,which have a similar safety.

The centerfire CZ rifles have the same bolt pivot style safety as a Rem 700. The CZ712 Semi SG has the same push crossbolt safety as a Rem 870 etc. The rimfires are the only line that is reverse which I fully knew when I invested in the gun.

My Dad taught me at a very young age that a guns safety may be different(and many times is) on any particular firearm & in addition to ensuring firearm is unloaded when picking up.....know exactly how the safety works. It's not like jumping on a bike and gaining balance without even thinking.

So much of shooting is done through muscle memory. I never had a CZ, but I had a Glenfield .22 bolt action rifle, and you had to move the safe to the rear to disengage it. Wasn't a problem until I started shooting other rifles, all of which required the safety to be pushed forward. Then' I often found myself trying to nudge the safety forward when shooting the Glennfield.

Kind of like being used to shooting a pump gun, and then taking a double gun out - find myself trying to pump the forend for the follow-up shoot.
