Our SAFARI 550 DGR (Dangerous Game Rifle) rifle is based on the double square bridge CZ-550 Magnum action with integral dovetail scope mounts, controlled-feed claw extractor, match grade Chrome Moly barrel using AHR contour, and glass bedded into our own AA Fancy English walnut stock. We blueprint the receiver, lap the bolt lugs and true the receiver face for perfect barrel to receiver alignment. We offer a custom single stage trigger as standard. This trigger lies to the rear of the trigger guard and is always in perfect shooting position. The safety is a wing type 3 position located on the bolt sleeve that blocks the firing pin. The bolt handle is straightened and is located in the forward area of the trigger guard eliminating any chance of a rap on the knuckles from recoil. Rear sight is a one fixed, one folding sight and front sight is a banded with fiber optic bead and hood. The 585 AHR and 600 Overkill come with ramp front sight. Black matte bluing is standard on all metal surfaces. Also standard is a banded front sling attachment 1-1/2" forward of the stock for-end on all rifles.

Our standard stock is made using AA Fancy Grade English walnut, with or without cheek piece, rear sling stud, African Blackwood fore-end tip and grip cap, 2 cross bolts and a 1" black Decelerator recoil pad. Our 4 panel checkering is a point pattern, 22-lines-per-inch on fore end and grip. Our stocks are all hand selected for their strength, integrity and beauty.
