Riggy it takes me a bit over an hour to drive home from 40calcritters and I can tell you I got the warm and fuzzies about this rifle. Just the oppisite of how I felt about it before.

Suddenly I think I may have something special. Can't wait to give it a fair test.

Exactly Que, The "HotRod" is off to a great start.

Vincent, when you get a chance to wring her out I bet you'll see why it is giving you a good feeling.

Bet the "HotRod" is going to be one heck of a shooter.

Darn you now you got me thinking of having one of mine re-chambered.

May be too early to tell but like I said, warm and fuzzies.

That is one of the better groups I have shot at 50 yds and it was under AWFUL conditions. I just hope it was not a fluke.

I'm excited.

the chamber is different and MUCH tighter than my Supamatch that i use on 10/22 barrels guys. that swhy i asked you need a pretty good camming action on the bolt to get it to work. looks like it's shooting MUCH better than before. glad it's working. yes it got bigger as you went forward of the breech. i had to cut .300" off this thing to get rid of all that junk. looks to be worth it though.

dang Vincent, Nemo saying the chamber is "much tighter" than his 10/22 magic, I bet you do have to put a little effort into seating it.

Nemo what would be the reasoning behind a factory chamber like was on it?

poor machining technique. heck if i know. i do know one thing it ruined all hopes of consistancy the round would lay along the bottom of the chamer like a dead fish till fired off. when the FP would hit it the round would jump around leading to who knows what kind of inconsistancys.

EDIT 9 years later: Maybe the same guy that did the checkering did the chamber! I have never seen such a horrible job as this rifle had on it. Then you look at the polish and the beautiful bluing and wonder how those problems and this beautiful metal work could come out of the same shop!!

I'm sure it was an accident. No one would chamber like that on purpose.

You must also remember this rifle is up to a pound or more lighter than a CZ American. It is very slim and trim. The stock is very narrow from end to end. It is NOT a benchrest rifle and it is slightly harder to shoot because of this. This morning I was putting rifles away and picked up the Mossberg in one hand and the Hot Rod in the other Amazing difference.

Yet it is all machined steel (yes even the trigger guard is machined ) No stamped strap for a Hot Rod

This would be a very fine bolt action squirrel rifle.

I did notice that there is at least one Rem Mod 5 in Tony Mig's 75/100 game. The Rem Model 5 and the CD Zastava are the same rifle except for stock

This is going to be interesting.

Vincent; I got my Zastava into the cheap ammo games (25& 50) no problem. All I've done to mine is cut barrel and recrown with crowning tool and play with pressure points on stock/ barrel. Love the adj. trigger. Can't wait to see what you do with your's! RH
