The CZ 600 Series Gets a New Model with the AMERICAN

With a focus on hunters and sport shooters alike, CZ USA adds the AMERICAN to its 600 Series of rifles. Available in a wide range of calibers, from .223 Rem. to .300 Win. Mag., it promises something for every discipline. Not to mention, a cold hammer forged barrel and adjustable single-stage trigger help to promote sub-MOA accuracy.

The AMERICAN Joins the CZ 600 Series of Rifles

Featuring a steel receiver with a Remington 700-type optic mounting interface, the AMERICAN utilizes a thin profile, cold hammer-forged barrel. Correspondingly, the model is available in a variety of calibers from .223 Rem. To .300 Win. Mag. Likewise, the barrel comes in lengths of 18 to 24 inches, depending on caliber, and features a 9/16-24 UNEF threaded muzzle for mounting a suppressor or other muzzle device.

The interface is provided via an elegantly crafted, symmetrical Turkish walnut AMERICAN-style stock. The stock features a fleur-de-lis motif decoration on the grip and forearm for solid retention and a tasteful aesthetic. In addition, all metal components are treated with CZ’s patented anti-corrosion finish for all-weather performance.

Providing quick and comfortable operation, the AMERICAN has a 60-degree bolt throw. The rifle also delivers exceptional performance via its innovative adjustable single-stage trigger mechanism. With four levels of pull weight (6-13,5 N), the trigger is adjustable by users without removing the receiver from the stock. As a result, the AMERICAN boasts sub-MOA accuracy (three-shot groups at 100m with match-grade ammunition).

Delivering a 4-round capacity (3 in .300 Win. Mag.), the locking magazine allows for removal or lock it and load it from the top of the receiver. Likewise, the controlled feeding system, with short extractor, ensures reliable cartridge delivery in any position.

“The new CZ 600 AMERICAN centerfire rifle has all of the impressive benefits found in the CZ 600 series, plus an American-style walnut stock that fits my shooting style perfectly,” says Matthew D. Emmons, CZ Development and Testing. “It feels good in your hand, the grip is comfortable, and I can acquire targets as soon as I bring it up to my shoulder. I give this model two thumbs up!”


The CZ 600 AMERICAN is available now with MSRPs of $849.00 (AMERICAN) or $1,499.00 (AMERICAN High Grade). For more info, please visit CZ-USA.com.

CZ-USA continues its development of its impressive 600 Series of rifles. Now the company adds a model built for competitors, the 600 Range Rifle. The Range brings competition-ready features into its design, built to hold accuracy at long-range distances.

CZ 600 Series Adds Range Rifle

The 600 Range comes with an incredible five-shot, sub-3/4-MOA accuracy guarantee! Now that’s keeping shooters in the black. It also raises the bar for production rifle accuracy standards, giving shooters a true out-of-the-box competition gun without spending custom prices.

The CZ 600 Range comes built for competition.

The 600 Range starts with a heavy, cold-hammer-forged barrel. It comes threaded and suppressor-ready and measures 24 inches long. Chambered in either 6mm Creedmoor or .308 Win., it should help squeeze all the velocity potential out of either. The rifle also sports a 60-degree bolt throw, steel receiver, and detachable magazine. A butthook-style stock features QD sockets on each side and a Pic rail for monopod mounting. It also features an adjustable cheek piece for true fit.

The competition shooters around here are pretty excited to see the Range. We hope to get on on the firing line soon for a full review.

Just like everything else in life, it takes all kinds to make the world go around. The same goes for shooting sports. For example, some like to hunt, some like target shooting and some like home and personal defense. For that reason, CZ USA presents its new 600 series line of rifles, offering something for everyone.

The CZ USA 600 Series of Rifles

The new 600 series from CZ offers four rifle options in three disciplines, rounding out every shooters dream safe.

CZ 600 Alpha

Designed as a well-rounded hunting option, the Alpha is a sub-MOA rifle providing tight shot placement. A lightweight aluminum receiver, coupled with a semi-heavy barrel, keeps you from being weighed down on the hunt. Additionally, the Alpha was designed to be tolerant to a wide variety of loads. These loads include 223 REM, 224 Valkyrie, 7.62×39, 308 WIN, 6CM, 6.5 CM, 6.5 PRC, 30-06, 300 WIN MAG.

CZ 600 Series Alpha

The barrel rests in a black, fiber-reinforced stock featuring a parallel comb, symmetrical geometry and vertical grip. In addition, to assist in positive engagement, serrated soft-touch inserts are located in multiple grip zones. Finally, providing endless optic choices to the user, 2-slot and 3-slot integral picatinny rails ride atop the barrel.

CZ 600 Lux

Featuring a traditional hunting rifle style, the Lux is the more classic of the 600 series. Building on a Turkish Walnut stock, the Lux is a slightly heavier option. The geometry of the Bavarian-style comb additionally allows for use with both optics and the equipped fiber-optic iron sights. Furthermore, the steel receiver is drilled and tapped to allow for Remington 700 pattern bases.

CZ 600 Series Lux

Fish-scale checkering and decorative forend not only complete the look but also aid in overall retention, in inclement conditions. Finally, as with the Alpha, the Lux comes with a sub-MOA guarantee.

CZ 600 Range

Designed with benchrest shooting in mind, the Range leaves no stone unturned. The Laminate stock features QD sockets on each side, for well-rounded carry options. Additionally, a tool free adjustable check piece ensures a consistent positive sight picture, regardless of optic. A pic rail on the bottom of the stock also allows for monopod mounting, while the butthook provides additional stability.

A cold hammer forged heavy barrel, coupled with the competition stock provide sub ¾ MOA at 100 meters. To demonstrate, CZ verifies this with 5 shot groups, with match-grade factory ammo on every 600 Range they make.

CZ 600 Trail

Building out from a PDW-style stock, the 600 Trail is a light compact rifle, ready for adventure. Chambered in .223 REM and 7.62×39 the Trail accepts any .223 magazine while also accepting the CZ Bren 2 magazines in 7.62×39. In addition, ambidextrous magazine release and safety levers are ready for both right-and left-hand shooters. Finally, the PDW-style stock deploys quickly and collapses to a very compact overall length, for easier travel.
