Good rifles, typical CZ accuracy. Depending on when it was built the bolt handle might have to be modified and rate of twist on the 223 might be on the slow side if you want to shoot long bullets. The mag hanging down is its biggest negative. I owned a 223 and a 204. The 204 is still here but it rarely gets shot as I use a Savage Storm 223 for varmint control.


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

Mine is a Lux rather than an American, one of my favorite rifles. 1-9 twist, longest bullet I've tried so far is 65 gr Game King, poi for them, the 55 gr Hornady and 55 gr Sierra is the same at 100 yds. It is more accurate than my 66 year old eyes.

Deer hate it though.

P.S. The safety does take a little getting used to though.

I've had two a 223 & 204. Great triggers!!!! Super accurate!!! You can get one now with fast twist for heavies!!! The safety isn't hard to get used to, like caulking the hammer on a lever!!! Bill out. 🐾👣🐾👣🇨🇦

I have two, albeit in right hand version. .223 and .221 fireball. Both are quite accurate but I wish the twist were tighter in both. The set trigger is a delight and the workmanship is beautiful. That being said, I wish they fed from the magazine a little smoother. The case rims don't glide up behind the extractor as smoothly on the forward bolt stroke and bind a little. If I weren't running the bolt fast and furious on running jack rabbits I probably wouldn't have noticed. I mounted scopes with 30mm tubes in medium height Warne rings and have just enough room between bolt handle and ocular bell.

I have one that began life as a 7.62x39 but now is a 6.8 SPC. Great trigger, balances well (its the carbine) and is fun to carry. Don't love the high bolt and backward safety but have gotten accustomed to using both. I put a stock pack on the buttstock to align my eye with the scope better. Set trigger is a plus but not often used.

Yes, i had 4 of them before they finally agreed to refund my money.
Minus the 6% sales tax i had paid however, plus the cost of shipping the first one back to K C, plus the cost of having the stock on #1 glass bedded.
I could have had #5, but since i had gotten to know the tech at KC so well he agreed with my request he test fire that one before they shipped it. He said that one in his words “didn’t perform well either”.
So i ended up buying a much less beautiful, but much better performing Savage.

Why? The Ruger 77 Hawkeye is a hell of a lot better gun for the money, has a 1-in-9" twist for .223 versions from the get-go, no half-assed hanging magazine, a non-epileptic safety, no goofy-ass high bolt lift problems, scope mounting is pretty straight forward with an integral mount system. And before any of the usual suspect whiners start with the apoplexy regarding Ruger rings, take a little gander at the data collected: CLICK D LINK

Now that is funny. More likely BT is bored with the site since Larry seems to be gone for good.

Probably. Good to hear from him. Hope he sticks around.

And, hope you’re right about ole Larry.

Unfortunately we’re losing the ones we need to keep, keeping some we could stand to lose.
