CZ-USA 600 Alpha: Bolt-Action Versatility

Versatility isn’t only for AR platform rifles, it’s for bolt-actions, too. The CZ-USA 600 Alpha is a stellar example of a well-made gun that’s capable of doing it all from range day to precision to hunting. This particular line of guns from the respected manufacturer is being offered in a wide variety of calibers with varying twist rates as are best suited to the chambering.

CZ-USA provides details of the gun:

With a choice of popular cartridges and high-performance features, the Alpha meets every shooter’s needs for hunting or competition and everything in between.

The Alpha’s sleek black, fiber-reinforced stock is optimized for more modern technical shooting styles with a parallel comb, symmetrical geometry, and a vertical grip. Serrated soft-touch inserts are located in multiple grip zones throughout the stock and are much appreciated when conditions are less than ideal.

A cold hammer-forged semi-heavy contour barrel delivers guaranteed sub-MOA with various loads. The barrels are threaded and suppressor-ready. Barrels range from 18 to 24 inches depending on the cartridge and feature a tough-as-nails nitride finish for unsurpassed corrosion resistance in the field.

The Alpha’s patented single-stage trigger is adjustable in four increments from 1.3 to 3 pounds without removing the chassis from the stock. This user-friendly feature allows field tuning to match the conditions and personal preferences.

Shooters will love the smooth and fast-handling 60° bolt throw, a design that increases clearance between the bolt and optic, plus it cycles considerably faster than traditional designs. Reliability was a vital consideration in the 600 Alpha’s design. So, CZ selected the short extractor, controlled round feed design for its round-cycling consistency in all situations.
