In late 2008, I posed the question, under Rifles and Calibre Review http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.uk/showthread.php?2921-Which-375-manufacturer-for-big-dangerous-game. Responses included Post references to BRNO being a preferred manufacturer for 'standard issue' rifles to PHs and/or the PH preference. I had the answer I wanted at that time (or thought I had) but am now, over a year later, able and intending to make the purchase and seek further clarification. I've tagged the gist of the following question to the earlier above referred to string but, now that acquisition of a 'big game' rifle is imminent, this particular Forum may be better placed to answer the outstanding query:
What is the PH 'standard issue' BRNO or is the standard issue really a CZ?
I've found a CZ550 Safari Magnum ("known as the 602 BRNO" - http://cz-usa.com/products/view/cz-550-safari-magnum/) and the CZ Magnum Express http://cz-usa.com/products/view/cz-550-safari-classic/. Or is there another rifle by BRNO themselves, such as the BRNO Zastava http://www.brnoguns.co.uk/zastava.htm, that is being referred to. I'm going for a 0.375 H&H Magnum, in case that influences the response.
Many thanks in advance
