Discontinued 2017. The CZ 550 FS features a classic Bavarian-style Mannlicher stock, steel muzzle cap and a 3-position safety. This safety is unique in the CZ line to the FS and Carbine Composite models. It locks the bolt and is on ‘safe’ when fully to the rear, remains on ‘safe’ with the bolt unlocked for unloading in the mid position and is ready to fire with the bolt unlocked in the forward position.
While the aesthetics of this model remind us of rifles from times gone by, with its short 20.5″ barrel, fast handling stock and iron sights, it is even today perhaps the most appropriate configuration for quick shots required when hunting in dense cover.
