CZ-USA announced a while ago they were bringing a new bolt rifle to the market, but freshly added to that line is the 600 Alpha!

Designed as a “do-all” bolt action rifle, CZ-USA is offering this in an impressive range of options with some great features – and doing it at a surprisingly low MSRP. 

Guaranteed to be sub-MOA at 100m, every 600 Alpha features a polymer stock with soft-touch inserts, a vertical grip, and a high cheek comb. 

A cold hammer-forged barrel is key to delivering precision, and a nitride finish gives unbeatable corrosion resistance. Plus, it comes threaded for brakes or suppressors as the user chooses.

CZ-USA is going outside of the box with a patented single-stage trigger that is adjustable in 4 increments from 1.3 lb to 3 lb without being removed from the stock. This puts the user in control of their trigger like almost no other factory rifle does and gives the option of a super light trigger pull.

CZ-USA 600 Alpha

The 600 Alpha doesn’t stop there – it has a 60-degree bolt throw, short extractor, controlled round feed, integral Picatinny scope base, silent 2-position safety, and detachable box magazines that can also be topped off through the ejection port!

All of this for an MSRP of only $750.

With the bolt rifle market kind of flooded with options, CZ-USA looks to be putting some real thought into this new line of rifles. Several advanced options normally only found on custom rifles put the 600 Alpha a step above much of the competition – at least on the spec sheet.

We’re looking forward to getting our hands on some rifles and getting trigger time!
