CZ-USA has initiated a safety recall for their new CZ 600 rifles that have the capacity for the user to swap barrels. One of the major features of the CZ 600 rifle series was the multi-caliber option within each of the three sizes of receivers, however, CZ-USA’s recall notice advises that if a barrel were improperly installed, the rifle would still be able to fire, which could lead to a catastrophic failure of the rifle. CZ-USA’s full voluntary recall notice can be read below, with a link at the end to check your CZ 600 rifles serial number.

SAFETY RECALL: CZ 600 Rifles
CZ-USA has recently learned of a potential safety issue with the CZ 600 bolt-action rifles. CZ-USA is voluntarily initiating a recall of these rifles to protect the safety of its customers because of the potential for a catastrophic failure if the barrel is not installed correctly.
To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, you should immediately stop using your CZ 600 rifle and not load or fire it until it has been returned to CZ-USA to be inspected and modified.
CZ 600 rifles were designed to allow the users to replace the barrels themselves to change the caliber. CZ-USA has learned that if the barrel is improperly installed, it is possible that the rifle could still be fired, but potentially result in a catastrophic failure. CZ-USA will correct this issue by permanently installing the barrels in CZ 600 rifles. As a result, the barrels on CZ 600 rifles will no longer be interchangeable. CZ-USA understands that this solution may not be acceptable to some of our customers, in which case we will issue a full refund upon presentation of a valid receipt for the purchase of your rifle.
