Discontinued 2013 – .22-250, 4-round detachable magazine – The 550 American is a contemporary hunting rifle with the premium quality and features you expect from CZ.

My 550 American .22-250 was a gift from one of my father’s friends so I could go hunting with them when I was young. The dual mode trigger is one of my favorite features of the rifle. Sub-MOA with low tier Bushnell glass and 55 gr. Federal Varmit loads.

I own the 550 American in the 6.5×55 and am very sad to see it go. If it were to be brought back I’d be first in line at the gun counter. You just can’t beat the long barrel and beautiful finish of the 550 American.

The 550 American I’m the 6.5×55 is the best gun I own. The longer barrel along with the walnut stock is a perfect combination. I hope production starts back up with this model.

I just purchased an American 9.3×62. Out of the box, first day at range, shot a 3/4″ group at 200 yards. A superb rifle.
Sorry to see this one is discontinued, as the 6.5 will be completing the pair one day.

Am so sorry to hear the 550 American has been discontinued. It pains me not to be able to purchase the 9.3 and 6.5 models the rest could be had somewhere else although I doubt the quality would be to par. If in the future production resumes I would be the first to buy one, I’ll be keeping an eye out for you guys.

Purchased this rifle for my son 2 years ago. Smooth bolt, easy to clean, steady with minimal kick. Easy to identify features for the safety, pin position, magazine release. He enjoys firing the rifle for both hobby and sport.

Well Made rifle, extremely accurate with Norma 286 Grain Oryx ammo, from a sand bag rest at 100 yards getting cloverleaf groups. Smooth bolt, I recommend this rifle and caliber, looking for another 6.5×55 I am going to get the Cz rifle for this Ease of operation, functioning, accuracy 4 star Hunting rifle

This is a great rifle in a superb calibre. I hunted all manner of plains game in Namibia with this exact rifle incl lion and leopard as well. it is simply superb, shame its been discontinued….

This past season I made five one shot kills here in the hills and fields of Tennessee with my 550 American. It is the most accurate .243 I have owned and a perfect marriage of weight, beauty and dependability. One of the deer was the biggest I have ever taken and was made through a small hole in the very thick hardwood forest at 125yards…..deer was completely invisible to the naked eye…..he dropped in his tracks from a neck shot using a 100 grain bullet. The set trigger on my rifle is awesome….making it possible to make very accurate shots in thick cover or open fields….I also took a nice fat doe at 327 yards…..dropped in her tracks with a high shoulder shot and same 100 grain bullet. My grandson used it this year during the youth season to drop a nice six point at 188 yards…..I don’t know how a hunter could ask for a better rifle for deer….sorry to hear it has been discontinued.

The CZ 550 American in .308 is the only hunting rifle I have purchased in the last 30 years that has shot a 4 shot sub-half inch group right out of the box. Great gun, its a shame that it has been discontinued. It outshoots both of my Remingtons and Ruger hunting rifles (both of which needed a little help to shoot an inch which is okay for minute of angle of Whitetail) The CZ 550 great gun. Thank You CZ.
