CZ Sharptail - what to expect out of the box?
« on: May 22, 2021, 12:33:13 PM »
Just bought a cz sharptail online from buds gun shop. I reached out to cz for their warranty info because my new gun has rust and blemishes on it but doesn't have the "blemish" mark anywhere on the gun. I haven't shot or held many side by side but was wondering what do others see out of the box? I feel like I got a rough gun for it being brand new. I'm new here so I don't know how to attach pics.

 Was this was purchased as a new gun? If so that is totally unacceptable. Contact CZ-USA for a warranty return. They'll fix or replace. But also be aware that some people confuse left over bluing salts as rust.

If this was a used gun it's a different story.

Brand new gun. The right bore doesn't look like the left and I put a light over it and it's orange. Can't be anything but rust since I see a perfect left tube. Its an orange patch the size of  sunflower seed or two. Then there's rust up in between the barrels, right behind the lug for the forend. I can see between the barrels behind the forend lug and up under the rib.everythibg forward of the forearm lug is sodered as expected. Why is there a gap there? This same area also seems to have missed some of the black chrome finish.the case colored receiver.. chemical process or other, idk. But it looks crappy in some areas. All of the blemishes and rust are subtle but visible non the less. I would not have bought had I held it at the store. I would've asked for another. CZ gave me a label for the warranty guess we'll see what they say in 2 months

CZ's website sez color case hardened and black hard chrome.  You're seeing plating residue.  Clean the Sharptail well, let sit, repeat.
