CZ-USA 550 Urban Counter Sniper

The CZ 550 UCS is a fresh rifle concept built with a compact profile for maneuverability, reduced weight and "cold first shot" predictability.

This barrel is enhanced with a Surefire muzzle break for soft recoil and QD suppressor compatibility. A Bell & Carlson fiberglass stock, aluminum bedding block, oversized bolt handle, polished action, Teflon coating and a crisp single stage trigger complete the package. Chambering is .308 Win. with a 1:12" twist, and the rifle comes with a 10 round detachable magazine.

Component Fusion Bullets

Fusion Ammunition was introduced a few years ago for the deer hunter who wanted a superior product at a competitive price. Fusion utilizes technology that bonds the jacket to the core one molecule at a time for impressive toughness. This was originally introduced in only centerfire rifle, but is now available for all disciplines of modern deer hunting. This youthful, aggressive brand has done well, and this success created a demand for component bullets.

Several Fusion rifle and handgun component bullets are offered ranging from 95-grain .243 to 225-grain .338 on the rifle side and from 158-grain .357 to 325-grain .500 on the handgun side.

Key features and benefits of Fusion bullets include a perfectly uniform jacket with a skived, pre-programed nose for consistent and reliable expansion. The plating of the jacket to the core results in maximum weight retention for deep penetration.

Pellets are all swaged in house at Hornady from hard, high antimony lead alloy to ensure uniform roundness and prevent pattern destroying voids in the pellets.

Mossberg Lightning Pump Action

This year marks another banner year as Mossberg introduces the Lightning Pump Action user-adjustable trigger system.
