Rifles With 19 mm Dovetail Mounting Surface

The 19 mm dovetail is commonly found on Czech centerfire rifles, such as the CZ 550, 537, 557, and Brno ZKK 600, 601, 602, among others. Like all dovetail designs, it has a wider upper side compared to the lower side, allowing for secure mount installation without the need for screws to penetrate the receiver.

The 19 mm dovetails also feature a recoil cutout for improved resistance against recoil in most cases. Unlike the 14.5 mm dovetails, the recoil groove on the 19 mm dovetails is positioned on the left rear side and does not extend to the top of the mounting surface. Additionally, the design of the 19 mm dovetail on Czech rifles often includes two separate parts, separated by an open-top ejection port.
