POTD: Defender & Trail

    POTD Defender Trail

    Today’s Photo Of The Day is from Česká zbrojovka and depicts their recently-released CZ 600 Trail bolt-action rifle on the now-discontinued Land Rover Defender off-road vehicle. These two workhorses are similar in many ways despite one being very young and the other being already retired. The caption of this picture which was posted on CZ’s social media pages reads: “If the word “practical” should be described with a picture it could look like this“.

    Here is how CZ USA describes the CZ 600 Trail rifle.

    You’ll find yourself adventure-ready with the CZ 600 Trail.  This light compact rifle is packed with a full set of features that make a difference to today’s marksman.  The Trail features AR magazine compatibility in 223 Rem and uses CZ Bren 2 magazines in 7.62×39.  In addition to a common magazine, the Trail delivers ambidextrous mag release and safety levers that will feel familiar to those used to the AR platform. The PDW-style stock is quick to deploy and allows the Trail to collapse to a very compact OAL when space is at a premium.
