    Wouldja buy one again, or look at something else first?

    What don't you like about them? (There has to be something - I think)

    I bought my dad one for Christmas last year. After shooting it, I want to buy several more.

    It is accurate, and it looks better than most other rimfires in its price range.

    After 452 Lux 22LR, 452 FS .22WMR, 452 Ultra Lux .22LR, CZ 550 American .243win, and soon to arrive, 550 FS .308win, I definitely would love to have more.

    They are great shooters, feel good in hands, look good, beautiful craftman and very reasonable price. :D

    I'm looking at 550 Safari Magnum .375 H&H, and 452 varmint .22LR, to be the next on the list.

    Below is my CZ 452 FS .22WMR. ;)


    What I don't like, hmmmm..... CZ hurts my bank account. :p

    I have a CZ 452 LUX .22 that I purchased about 4 years ago. The CZ 452 has lived up to my expectations as an accurate, quality rimfire rifle- no complaints whatsoever.
    I recently decided to buy a new rimfire toy - a .17hmr. I looked closely at the CZ, Anschutz & Sako. For looks alone I went with the Sako Quad Hunter & as good as the CZ is, the Sako is better. Quality comes with a price, with the Sako costing double the price of a CZ in .17hmr.
    If you are considering a CZ you won't be disappointed.

    i did, recently purchased my 2nd cz rimfire for the simple fact of this version being offered with a 28" barrel

    Ifit, did you put the FS stock on the UL or did someone else? Looks good.

    my cousin has a 16 inch barrelled black one... maybe called the silhouette or similar. it is superb. they are developed from the old brno model 2 and are time proven excellant performers. I got rid of one about 5 years ago. I regret it. i would have it back any time. accurate, well made reliable and cheap. what more could you want

    yes i did, after a range day of cleaning the rifles decided to switch the stocks around just for kicks, so the pic shows on top the ultralux w/fs stock, and below the fs w/u lux stock

    For the money I would buy another in a hearbeat, simply nothing better in it's price range.

    The things I don't care for are the poor out of the box trigger, I know cheap simple spring swap brings it up to par, but I should not need to modify a brand new rifle to get it within spec. The only other thing that bothers me is the cheap stamped sheet metal trigger guard. I nice milled trigger guard sure would be a fine addition.

    A guy at my club shoots a 452. I was just admitting the stock yesterday. He does really well with it and it may be the sexiest .22 I have ever seen.

    You bet! Already have 3. 07 model American, 09 Lux, & 10 Ultralux. Probably will get another, maybe a FS, and would very much like a 527 in 22 hornet, but would also like to have a 2nd Ultralux, by far my favorite! Everything about this rifle fit's me and my style & purpose. Wish they made the UL in 22mag and I'd jump on one now cause I'm sure it would take this round to another level for an ironsight hunting rifle! There's been a lot of -'s about the triggers, and must say my American has a lotta creep since I set it at it lowest, but in the squirrel woods I don't notice it and at 2 1/4# the rifle don't miss, only me occasinally, but I may work on that creep in the future? Love the triggers on the Lux & Ultralux, them being the same as they came out of the box, plenty good to near perfect for ironsight hunting rifles, which is my use of em. Also plenty that don't like the trigger guards but I like em the way they are! Only thing I would change on all 3 would be for the blueing on the Lux & Ultralux to be the equal of my American, which rivals that of an old Belgium made Browning!

    I would buy one again. Had I not been in a jam, I would never have sold the one I had. :mad: (452 "Training Rifle" purchased in 2002, $229 at the time)

    There is always something. The safety is counterintuitive, having to release your grip and pull it to the rear to disengage it. The finish is not very rust resistant, although it was partly my fault for letting it sit too long. And that's it.

    Yes I would buy my 452 FS again without hesitation. The rifle has been more accurate than I thought it would be and its looks need no apology.

    I bought a .22 varmint version (453 IIRC) after getting one in .204 Ruger. Both have the set trigger, which is excellent. Best groups I've been able to get are maybe 3/4" at 50 yards. Needs a scope with finer reticule.

    Best I've got out of the .204 is maybe slightly less than an inch at 100 yards. It's still a work in progress.

    I wanted a super accurate .22 rimfire. Seemed to be the most rifle for the least money.

    Tim the student;

    I have several. I bought the first one simply because it was one of the very few left hand bolt .22 rimfires on the market. I sold the Savage LHB .22 & bought more CZ's. I'm now starting a project to turn one of my CZ452 LHB's into a full stock LHB.

    The YoDave kit allows you to adjust the trigger to whatever (within reason) you want and it's only about $20.00. There are also milled triggerguards on the market. I know this for a fact, I've purchased two of them over the years. I don't remember the name of the outfit right offhand, but they're in Boise Idaho I think & the fella that does them hangs out in the CZ section of Rimfire Central.

    I have a CZ 452 Varmint in .17HMR that I bought about 6 years ago. It is incredibly accurate and just a beautifully crafted rifle. I would definately buy again!

    I frequently recommend the Scout model as a kid's first rifle. The first time I saw one, I thought, "What a cute little carbine!" until I shouldered it and my hand hit my nose. :D

    I've got two: a 453 Varmint and a 452 Scout for my son. The 453 has a set trrigger and a fixed 4x Nikon and shoots one hole at 50 yards.

    The only other .22 I would consider for "accurate" work is the Savage B or F series, based on the many reviews I have read online. I have never shot one.

    I also have a Ruger 10/22, but who doesn't?

    I have a 452 American. There are a few minor design issues I'd prefer were different, the factory trigger is gritty, but I'd buy another in a second. While not exactly they way I'd design a rifle, they are the best 22 bolt rifle out there for the money.
