Developed in 1990's. The specific shape of the stock was given, among other things, by the fact that the 10-round magazine was hidden. The basic model of the stock made from laminated wood was provided with a thumb hole located behind the pistol grip; however, a bit differently shaped stock made from black polymer was also developed featuring a large recess instead of the thumb hole.The sophisticated stockwas provided with a rail for bipod attachment situated at the bottomof the forend. A very positive feedback was noted in regards of the crooked bolt handlewith amassive polymer knobwhich in combination with the smooth bolt travel contributed to the very comfortable handling of the rifle. The receiver top of the basic version was outfitted with amounting rail according toMIL-STD-1913, however, some of the versions of the rifle featured the classical rails located on the receiver bridge for the purpose of mount rings attachment. The trigger mechanism of the CZ 700 was fully adjustable with the option to install the set-trigger. The basic version of the CZ 700 Sniper M1 achieved an excellent accuracy of 0.5MOAwith the use of the top quality ammunition. Nevertheless, the CZ 700 was designed as a part of a weapon system distinguished, among other things, by a removable floating barrelwhich could be replaced within five minutes without the necessity to use any special tools. Besides the heavy, cold hammer forged barrel the weapon could be supplied with a fluted barrel or a barrel adjusted for subsonic ammunition and sound suppressor attachment. Together with the two types of stocks, the rifle offered a wide range of different combinations.
