Fair trade price-wise I'd say, but I'd keep the CZ. They keep going up in price and availability seems limited. I like Number 1s, but the B models are heavy, and any Ruger SS can be problematic as to accuracy, or not. Gotta factor in quality of wood and rifle lust too, naturally.

Can comment on value, but I’ve had four #1s. None had acceptable accuracy. Pretty guns, but that’s all they have in my view.

I have 9 or 10, all are 1Bs and all are quite accurate, including a .22Hornet that may be the most accurate rifle I own.

Yup, being a No.1 loony I would make that trade in a heartbeat, especial if the 1B is in .280!

I love 'em from afar, but in hand they've done only so-so. My brother's Liberty .270 was an exception, but evaded me. Mausers and near-Mausers draw me at least as much, so keeping a good-shooting 550 would be an easy call, wacky Euro-chambering and all.

I have two #1s.- a 1B in .257 Roberts and a 1A in 7x57. Have had them both for over 20 years and wouldn’t give them up for a house & lot.
The 1B was accurate right from the get-go and still is. It shoots just about anything I feed it into 1.25” groups or better. My favorite hunting loads are all under m.o.a.
The 1A (light sporter) started out as a .30-06. It was fussy about what it was fed but I did have several loads that would group 1 to 1.25”. As age and arthritis in my neck and shoulders eventually caught up to me I decided I needed something with a little less recoil. Not wanting to give up the sweet handling little 1A, I did some research and decided that a 7x57 would be a good choice. Hence, in the spring of ‘18 the rifle was delivered to a local gunsmith who installed a custom 23” 7x57 barrel in the same contour as the origional. It was my good fortune that he specializes in match/long range rifles and the barrel maker (also a local fellow) specializes in match grade barrels. As a result, I now have a light, sweet handling little rifle that fits me like a glove, shoots under m.o.a. and doesn’t hurt me. Almost everything I’ve tried (it doesn’t like 140 Nosler partitions) has given great accuracy, with 145 Speer Hot-cors and 154 Hornady Interlocks over H4350 being the real ticket.


What man, on his death bed, ever lamented, "God, I wish I had spent more time at the office."

I dont know the $$$, but; I do have a Brno 600 in 7x64. A quality rifle. That gun is the predecessor of the 550. No way, ever, I would trade that for a 280! I know you know, but; for the benefit of others the two are identical in performance and almost interchangeable. Same loading data. The 7x64 is a great old classic and the 280 is right up there with the 270 as my personal pet peeve. They both go back to the ugly american metric hating days.

I had a Voere for a while that was chambered in 7X64 Brennke, and it was a fantastic rifle - except for the cartridge flippy loading thing on the side! LOL!
