FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
Brno Rifles is a high end line of fixed breach firearms from the historic arms manufacturing plant in Brno, Czech Republic, founded in 1918.
Previously part of the Viennese Arsenal under the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the plant began production making Mauser and Mannlicher rifles.
In 2008 Brno rifles became a subsidiary company of Česká zbrojovka a.s. (CZ) and in 2010 the company was renamed to ZBROJOVKA BRNO, s.r.o.
The BRNO ZKK 600 is a bolt-action rifle with a Mauser style action, and is very popular among hunters and PHs in Europe and Africa, due to its durability, reliability, price and good variety of calibers.
It was later replaced by the CZ 550.
It is available in 3 action lengths, designated by its model number, e.g. the model 601 has a short action which was used for calibers like .223 Rem, .308 Win or .243 Win.
The model 600 is the medium action length, like this particular rifle chambered in .30-06 Springfield, and the model 602 designates the large action for larger calibers.
These rifles are available with a standard profile (curved) trigger, or a straight profile, dual function or set trigger (like this particular rifle).
It is similar in function to a Savage AccuTrigger in that you can push the trigger forward in order to set or engage a hair trigger pull.
To disengage the hair trigger, you simply engage the safety and pull the trigger.
The rifle is set in a checkered Walnut stock with white spacers, and has a 24″ barrel, with flip-up, v-notch iron sights.
The .30-06 Springfield cartridge, 7.62×63mm in metric notation and called “.30 Gov’t ’06” by Winchester, was introduced to the United States Army in 1906 and later standardized; it remained in use until the late-1970s.
The .30-06 remained the U.S. Army’s primary rifle and machine gun cartridge for nearly 50 years before being replaced by the 7.62×51mm NATO (commercial .308 Winchester) and 5.56×45mm NATO (commercial .223 Remington), both of which remain in current U.S. and NATO service.
It remains a very popular sporting round, with ammunition produced by all major manufacturers.
This gun is in very good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The polished barrel is still very good with only a few, tiny, light scratches in some places which are virtually unnoticeable and really insignificant.
The matte finish on the receiver is also still very good.
There is only some extremely light wear around the muzzle and the sides of trigger guard and bolt handle.
The wooden stock is very good with only the odd, very light, small ding in places, nothing significant at all, and the recoil pad is still very good.
It has a set trigger and is fitted with a Lynx scope which has a few, very small light scratches in places but is otherwise in very good condition.
This firearm is suitable for medium and big game hunting.
