OK, they're Czech. Anyone have experience with these? I see a 305 and a 342 on Gunbroker. Fairly compact guns, and relatively inexpensive. The 305 in the old Savage High Power (5.6x52R) interests me.

ligonierbill,
I think the different model numbers are just different barrel configurations( Combo, double rifle, double shotgun, etc, maybe also finish), the ZH actions are all basically alike. A German friend hunted with one in 7x57R/12ga., it was "hell for stout" and strong enough that the rifle barrel is on top.

I believe that the third number designates the caliber. Mine is a 305 12ga/5.6x52R(22HP) with a set of Tula choked(so I'm told) skeet barrels. I understand from other owners that while having two triggers one of the acts as a single non-selective trigger. Mine that started out as a combo gun (I added the skeet barrels) they are true double triggers.

I'm always on the lookout for a set of 28" 12ga barrels to make it a true travel a everywhere rig.

Great coyote calling rig in the the thicker stuff with the shotgun barrel yet is good to 300 yards on coyotes that hang up out there a ways..

Your comments about the one of the two triggers recalls the original "double-Single" trigger developed by Val Browning for the Superposed shotgun in the 1930's. Great idea, but I'm guessing if it got out of sorts, perhaps a watchmaker could figure it out. I'd love to have such a nice set-up for 'yotes here in MI- but son-in-law and I, my varmint hunting partner give it another spin- one of us takes a 12 gauge full choke M12 scattergun, the other either a .220Swift or a .243Win-- love to shoot them 'yotes.

Foxie,
If you want one at a reasonable price, check out Simpson Ltd. They have recently imported several in 5.6x52R and 222 Mag. I have no connection with them.

The one above is a Simpson gun. I took a trip through that country a number of years ago and bought 5 weapons. I took a list of things I wanted to look at, they gave me a little section of counter to set up on and brought them out one by one. Nice people to work with. The Galesburg Municipal campground on the lake north of town is beautiful and set in a grove of huge old oak trees. The only downside is those oaks have the biggest acorns I've ever seen and when the hit the camper roof in the night you think your being attacked.

I have a CZ 584 combination gun, similar and I think a newer model. Very strong action, weighs about 7.25 lbs, very accurate rifle (7x57R) with adjustable trigger.

I have seen the BRNOs for sale with as many as six barrel sets, but have never handled one.

Oskar, there is a 16 ga barrel set for sale on Gunbroker. Not 12 ga, but not bad.

I did buy a BRNO ZH 305. I quickly found dies and brass for 5.6x52R, but no bullets yet. Yet another obsolete caliber to keep shooting.

What weight bullets are you looking for? I might have a box of Hornady 70gr
