From CZ-USA . . .

The 600 Alpha is part of the exciting new CZ-USA 600 series rifle family. The Alpha combines the best characteristics of this new generation of rifles into a do-it-all gun, delivering sub-MOA accuracy at a budget-friendly price! With a choice of popular cartridges and high-performance features, the Alpha meets every shooter’s needs for hunting or competition and everything in between.

The Alpha’s sleek black, fiber-reinforced stock is optimized for more modern technical shooting styles with a parallel comb, symmetrical geometry, and a vertical grip. Serrated soft-touch inserts are located in multiple grip zones throughout the stock and are much appreciated when conditions are less than ideal.

A cold hammer-forged semi-heavy contour barrel delivers guaranteed sub-MOA with various loads. The barrels are threaded and suppressor-ready. Barrels range from 18 to 24 inches depending on the cartridge and feature a tough-as-nails nitride finish for unsurpassed corrosion resistance in the field.

The Alpha’s patented single-stage trigger is adjustable in four increments from 1.3 to 3 pounds without removing the chassis from the stock. This user-friendly feature allows field tuning to match the conditions and personal preferences.

Shooters will love the smooth and fast-handling 60° bolt throw, a design that increases clearance between the bolt and optic, plus it cycles considerably faster than traditional designs. Reliability was a vital consideration in the 600 Alpha’s design. So, CZ selected the short extractor, controlled round feed design for its round-cycling consistency in all situations.

On top, integral Picatinny scope bases allow the shooter to choose from various optic mounting solutions. A silent, 2-position safety compliments this action. It enabled a locked or cycling bolt with the safety engaged. In the field, this type of safety prevents unintentional bolt opening.

A detachable magazine allows quick mag changes, and its built-in locking feature ensures secure magazine retention. Magazine top-off through the ejection port adds speed and convenience when extra shots are required.

The 600 Alpha incorporates the high CZ standards of accuracy, reliability, durability, and versatility and marries them with the new rifle platform. It includes innovative technology, top-of-the-line materials, and an advanced design. Check out the new CZ 600 Alpha – a rifle for the shooter wanting true versatility.

    • I worked part-time from my apartment and earned $30,030. After losing my previous business, I quickly became exhausted. Fortunately, I discovered these jobs online, and as a result, I was able to start earning money from home right away. Anyone can accomplish this elite career and increase their internet income by….

      After reading this article….

    • There was a time, in Terminator 2, where an attempt was made to nip Skynet in the bud by setting its creators on a different path. That ship has probably already sailed for us.

      • Defens,

        The human defenders in the Terminator franchise faced almost-impossible-to-kill cyborgs: fortunately for us our antagonists are humans and thus far more fragile.

  1. And now we bring you another example of threats faced daily by those in the U.S.

    Wendy’s worker charged with murder after punching customer in Prescott Valley

    Over 3,500 victims of physical criminal assault violence with hands/feet daily, over 1,270,000 victims annually, in the U.S. folks (not counting those victims of domestic criminal violence which is about ~1,000 hourly across the U.S., over 8,700,000 annually). We are surrounded by criminal violence waiting to happen to us every where we go every day, be prepared.

      • I quit performing at shoprite and currently I create $80h – $120h…how? I’m operating online! My work didn’t precisely make Maine happy thus i made a decision to require an opportunity on one thing new… when four years it had been so onerous to quit my day job however ;Zl’24} now I couldn’t be happier.
        Heres what I do………

      • Yeah, that’s a bit odd, isn’t it? I own 4 x CZ bolts, and they’re all great value rifles. “Lightness” isn’t a good argument for an aluminum receiver.

        • Yes it does. The Firearms Blog has a piece on all of these new CZs from the German gun show. They were supposed to have interchangeable bolt heads and barrels, but it seems there has been a recall because some people don’t know how to torque the new barrel in place.

          Personally, I am hot for the 600 Lux, with a Bavarian style walnut stock, but there are very few on the market (mostly 300 Win Mags) and they all come at a substantial premium on the auction sites.

        • It must be done according to the manual. I know caliber changing is a way around some stupid laws, but I prefer to have a gun set up for one caliber.

          I’m really impressed by how my Ruger Scout in 5.56 shoots. With a better optics than the Leupold M8 scout scope, it will be a great combination.

        • The barrel doesn’t thread into the receiver. It is slid in and locked down with three Torx-head screws that compress the receiver down on the barrel.

          There’s a very real and non-trivial cohort of gun owners who should not be given that type of barrel replacement. If you make working on guns so easy that any Bubba can do it, guess what? You get X% of results that are just like Bubba did it, because Bubba did it.

          Even when given Unified, square or Whitworth threads on the vast majority of bolt-action barrel tenons and receivers, give Bubba a chance to fool with them and you will get results that result in lawsuits because no one told Bubba “Stop it. You’re too stupid to do this. Just stop. Now.”

    • I bet Dan Z. would be agreeable if you volunteered to write the review…

      • I mean, I could, and it’s in my price range in general for guns, but I don’t have a lot of rifle experience or expertise, so it wouldn’t be of great value for the rest of you.

        I would be interested in reading what someone with a clue thought about the gun after having a go with it.

      • On the other hand, I’d be up for doing a review of the Mantis Laser Academy. I’ve had it for a just short of three weeks now and have “fired” over 4,800 shots with it. I think I could give that product a fair review.

  2. Sounds like they did something like the Browning XBolt where the bolt stays locked from opening but you can still load and unload the gun on safe. Big (and only) improvement over the 527 series. With a 60 degree throw, it doesn’t take much to move the bolt enough to prevent the rifle from firing. You’ll go to take a shot and the gun won’t fire. That’s why Browning went from the Abolt to the XBolt. I really wish they had included the the single set trigger though.

  3. With detachable mags, does that mean normal capacity AK mags can be used if you get the 7.62×39 version?

    • Why would you want to put that much weight on a bolt gun? Not that it matters; the locks for these are in front of the mag, so I suspect an AK would not lock in.

    • Probably not. Euros love their proprietary magazines. At least the Ruger Scout takes AI pattern magazines which are available

    • No, the CZ 600 Trail in 7.62×39 uses detachable CZ Bren 2 magazines, which come in 10-round and 30-round sizes.

  4. The 600 series already had a recall , why didn’t tag mention that and what did they fix ?

    Also these are “switch barrelish “ as the bolt locks into the barrel ala AR style. Definetly interesting but typical tag just shills things not actually doing the work

  5. Beer can receiver.
    I do like the 24inch barrel, that’s a rarity anymore.
    Plastic stocks, good but not pretty.
    Picattiny rail mounts, the rage of the new age.
    If given the choice I’d buy a Howa or Wthby Vanguard.

    • The Howa is the 21st century Remington offering a good out of the box gun with decent accuracy at a good price. And with good, and getting better, aftermarket support.

      Since the Remington 700, Winchester model 70, and Savage are now getting into the premium end, the Howa is an attractive alternative.

      • The truth is, there is no such thing as a “premium Remington 700.” Never was. It was always an exercise in cost-cutting manufacturing tricks.

        • It’s just in my part of the world a new-in-box Remington 700 is north of $2000. A Howa is less than half that and performs just as well and often better.

          I know people who buy second hand Remington 700s just for the receiver and then go nuts with the Brownells catalog.

  6. Yeah, maybe, but I think I’ll stick with what I have now. That’s mostly Winchester Model 70 control round feed, or a derivative. If not a Remington 700, or a derivative. They work. That’s the most important thing you can say about any firearm.

  7. So when is the recall? Seriously, CZ is ruining their brand. They should have never discontinued the 550 Safari rifles or the 527 models. I really liked the single set triggers & iron sights. I do like the 457 though and did add one to my 452 collection but it seems like all the good CZ s**t is gone or going away.

  8. Just to keep you up to date on this rifle:

    “CZ-USA has recently learned of a potential safety issue with the CZ 600 bolt-action rifles. CZ-USA is voluntarily initiating a recall of these rifles to protect the safety of its customers because of the potential for a catastrophic failure if the barrel is not installed correctly.

    To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, you should immediately stop using your CZ 600 rifle and not load or fire it until it has been returned to CZ-USA to be inspected and modified.

    CZ 600 rifles were designed to allow the users to replace the barrels themselves to change the caliber. CZ-USA has learned that if the barrel is improperly installed, it is possible that the rifle could still be fired, but potentially result in a catastrophic failure. CZ-USA will correct this issue by permanently installing the barrels in CZ 600 rifles. As a result, the barrels on CZ 600 rifles will no longer be interchangeable. CZ-USA understands that this solution may not be acceptable to some of our customers, in which case we will issue a full refund upon presentation of a valid receipt for the purchase of your rifle.”

    I’m not going to speculate on what the problem is at this point.

  9. Dyspeptic, you are the one to ask. Why are blue printed Rem 700 actions used for so many premium builds?

    • They’re not anymore. They used to be before there were so many custom actions that are 700 clones that fit the same stocks and take the same aftermarket competetition triggers came along in the market that have all the blueprinting work done.

      Today, if a customer asks me to blueprint a 700 action, I sit down with them and add up all the time and charges I’d likely put into single-pointing their receiver, perhaps bushing their firing pin, slicking up their firing pin, lapping their bolt lugs, surface grinding their recoil lug, and dealing with the results as they carry forward into their barrel, you probably want to replace the 700 extractor with a M16 or Sako style extractor… and then I lay out the prices of several new, custom 700-clone actions that don’t need to be blueprinted and have better implementations. Suddenly, blueprinting doesn’t look like such a good economic investment.

      The only time blueprinting a 700 action now makes sense as a foundation for a premium build is if you get the 700 action at a very, very good price (like less than $300, including the bolt and recoil lug), or you’ve had some old 700 rifle you’re willing to make the foundation for a project, but you understand the barrel is going to be left behind.

      As to why so many higher-end rifles used to be built on 700 actions: They’re easy to work on, and they used to be cheap in a market where the other inexpensive, available bolt actions cost more and took more skill to achieve the same results.

      The 700 receiver is nothing but a tube of 4140 steel. You can chuck it up in a lathe or a fixture, dial it in and start working on it very easily. If you want to do the same sorts of things you can do in a chuck or fixture on a 700 on a Winchester 70, Mauser, ’03 or other similar action, you need to make a mandrel and work between centers, and you might need to grind some customer HSS tooling.

      Now, if you were going to blueprint more than, oh, eight to ten 700 actions, Dave Kiff or Dave Manson have tooling that you can just crank into a 700 receiver in the bolt channel that will true the receiver face, true up the threads, dress up the locking lugs in the receiver all in one go, with no lathe or machine needed. You’ll still need to bush the firing pin in lots of cases, and that will require a bolt holding fixture and some skill, you’ll still need to grind the recoil lug, etc.

      In the rifle market, there are two levels of “custom premium rifle” – the varmint or tactical/benchrest types of rifles, which start with a 700 or 700 clone action and they might top out in the $5K range. Then there are the levels where the customer doesn’t blink an eye at dropping $8K or more on a custom rifle, with high-figure walnut (the wood blank can start at $1200 for a slab of walnut), a stock made to fit the owner personally, extensive detailing, perhaps engraving on the metal, etc. Those rifles often start at $8K and go up like a homesick angel. Those rifles typically don’t start with a Rem700 or clone – they start with a Mauser, P17 Enfield (for very large African/dangerous game cartridges), a pre-war Model 70 action, Springfield ’03, or a custom rifle action, usually of a Mauser-98-ish pattern.

      • Good read!

        It is getting to the point that out of the box lower end guns are capable of accuracy that 20 years ago was the realm of custom shops.

        My Ruger Scout is currently only limited by optics. It is surprisingly very accurate without even fine tuning the handload. I used the same load I use in my No4 conversion. 55g projectile backed by 25.5g of AR2206H (also available through Hogden) with Winchester case and primer. It is a maximum load but seems to work.
