I have one on a CZ but it is on the heavy side for a .375. Have another on a Mark X commercial Mauser that is lighter. That one spent some time at the gunsmith for a rework last year.

CZ 550 reworked by American Hunting Rifles:



Mark X as purchased used:



Version 2.0, changed out the safety and dropped it into a McMillan stock, well the gunsmith did:



Now Version 3.0 after the spa treatment by American Hunting Rifles, changed just about everything:



I like the .375 but have used a .458 a bit more.

For deer and hogs I think the non-premium Remington 270-grain loads work just fine (And yes, that is a bandage on my forehead -- don't crawl the stock when shooting prone! Can't believe that was ten years ago.).

Charles the Mark X is what I bought. It's as it was when it was sold new and I really like the rifle.

I'm going to play with it a while and if I decide to keep it I would want to do what you did with the 3rd revision of yours. "Now Version 3.0 after the spa treatment by American Hunting Rifles, changed just about everything"

I like that.

Anyway I love the way the rifle shoots and it's very accurate and it's getting used some.

Thanks guys.

The nice thing about the Mark X is that you can get a lighter rifle all-in than with the CZ. Much easier to carry around.

In the end, I got a barrel band swivel base (not included with the Alaskan version), a three-position Model 70-style safety, single standing rear leaf sight and front sight with flip-up night sight and folding hood. Coated the metal with something that should stand up to being carried a bit better than the original bluing.

Cut the barrel down a bit as I find it handier, although you lose a some muzzle velocity.

I had picked up a take-off stock to use but it ended up not being suitable, so I went with the restock with metal grip cap and red Decelerator pad.

Now I need to convince AHR to do another for me.

If you handload the 375 you will find that it can be extremely accurate.
I have a friend that shoots one competitively. He gets lots of laughs until the groups are measured.

Agreed. They are big footballs that stabilize well. My 416 shoots a cloverleaf with a 400 gr Barnes X @ 100 yds

Interesting Charles...but I like the barrel length on this one as is.

I might buy some dies and start playing with it but right now I don't shoot it enough to justify it.

If I decide to keep it I'll sure reload for it.

Nice hole there mrsh978

Just thought I’d resurrect this thread. I’ve had my eyes open looking for a nice Interarms Whitworth or CZ 550 in .375 H&H. I wasn’t in any real hurry and knew that I’d know it was right when I found it. Well here it is. It started life as a Whitworth express rifle in .375 H&H. The gentleman I bought it from sent it off to H and H custom rifles and they Ackley Improved it, restocked it, added the break and the fiber optic front sight. It’s basically everything I wanted this rifle to be except the brake. I will most likely cut it off and have it recrowned or at the very least, have a thread protector built for it. I like the quick detach Talley rings and bases and the 2-7x33 Leupold as well. I got about 35 loaded rounds of Improved ammo with it and will do some testing to compare these versus standard .375. I guess now, I have to go back to Africa!
I forgot to mention the action was smooth Ed up and a new trigger added as well. It was gone over and reworked very well. I’ll try to remember to update this as I start playing with it and carrying it as my back up nilgai rifle.

Did a full safari with double rifles. Shot a grants gazelle with 375 H&H double rifle. Then shot a zebra and cape buffalo with 450 NE double rifle. That 375 is a sweet shooter for sure. And an absolute treat compared to the 450 hahhahaa...
