Update from prior review -- CZ reworked the magazine feed and free floated the barrel under their warranty, even paid the freight both ways. It's still a bit rough on the forward bolt stroke, but better than it was before. If I grasp the stock underneath so that I'm pressing the magazine up when I chamber the next round, the bolt picks up and chambers the round much more smoothly. I guess there is just a little play in there that could not be removed. Anyway, it shoots great. After zeroing it in at 100 yards, 8 of 10 shots grouped under an inch inside the bullseye and the other 2 were less than half an inch outside that group. And that was with the basic Hornady 55gr. fmj ammo. Although the action is a bit rough, for me accuracy is everything since my interest is target shooting, so I'll live with the rough spots and take the sub-moa any day.

Unfortunately, I was unable to cycle rounds through this rifle when I picked it up from my FFL. Had I been able to, I would not have accepted it, as the magazine does not mate up correctly with the chamber. The bolt will pick up the cartridge on the forward stroke, but it requires so much force to move the cartridge from the magazine to the barrel that it gouges the brass. I bought an extra magazine when I purchased the rifle, and this happens with both magazines. I discovered this defect as soon as I went to the range. But I went ahead and fired a few rounds through it loading from the top, and appears to be very accurate; easily a sub-moa rifle. The rifle is now with CZ in Kansas City for warranty repair work on the magazine feed. They said it would be 2-4 weeks. I called them after 2 weeks and they hadn't even looked at it, advising it would be 4-6 weeks. Bummer. This rifle should have never left the factory in the first place in this condition. I'll do an update on this review after I get the rifle back and have a chance to see what it can do. In the meantime, 3 stars is the best I can give it.
