    10/22's dont set any standard by any means...I actually own 5 or more ceezees...that are great rifles...what needs to be improves is the THR norm of post instead of belittling and criticizing others...give positive beneficial info...nobody likes to listen to a THR grumpy old/young winer/weiner...sorry need spell check. :neener:

    These are our 10/22's.

    I cannot stand the standard 10/22 stock. It's bulky and blocky. The one in the picture with the plain barrel has a standard stock heavily dremeled and sanded/refinished.

    If Ruger 10/22's have a cult following, I am not a member. There are certainly others I'd like if I had the yingum.

    This shows the difference a little work will make in a standard stock:

    And that's your reason for never buying one? Because other people love them?


    Never intended to and couldn't care less. As X-Rap so aptly said, "...to each his own."

    CZ's are great bolt-action rimfire rifles; I have a 452 American and a 455 Lux and can't say enough good things about them. Just saw a new 452 Military Trainer for $340 and really had to resist adding it to the collection.

    10/22's are great semi-auto rifles. Not much not to like, and they are very easy to customize yourself.

    I recommend owning both. Two different things, like a Remington 700 and a Springfield M1A. Why limit yourself to one or the other?

    There are so many. I have both the 10/22 and the CZ452. Each has its own qualities. It is hard to choose between two of your dear children! I enjoy them both.

    However, if I could only have one, or if it were a question of which one to buy first, I would choose the CZ452 first, but I would eventually buy a Ruger.

    Right now, however, and more important to me, is: where do I find ammunition for either of them?

    Good luck! :)

    I do not feel that a 22 rimfire is enough for coyote. It is a great gun. Pick a different caliber like 223 and you are goodto go.

    You should go back and grab that Trainer. That's a good price (it'll bring more than that if you decide to sell it -- they've been going for anywhere from $430 to $540 on GB now that they are discontinued and the supply has pretty much dried up), and the Trainer is one of the best-feeling guns CZ offers. Just a little enabling here.... :D

    You could womp them with a Subsonic 60 gr Aguila at short ranges. I think that is the very best you could expect in that regard as far as humane kills with an underpowered gun and that is pushing it.

    I'd stick with something bigger as you suggest. May as well put em down without a doubt.

    I do not know too much the 223 will not kill humanely at the right range and a good shot.

    At the risk of letting this thread diverge even more, a .223 will kill humanely just fine. It drops Yotes like rocks. It's a great little round.

    On the other hand, a 22 LR in the right spot will do job. It's all about shot placement.

    I don't think I'd want to blast a charging brown bear with a .223. I might shoot one that I had a good side shot on with a .223. But that would be pushing the envelope big time. I like the .223 but it has it's limitations.

    BTW I've killed lots of feral dogs with a .22. With the right shot placement they drop right on the spot. I've only had to shoot 2 dogs twice. Some were shot at 50 yards away. I don't think a coyote would be much different.

    The only thing I like about the 10/22 is the magazine. Sooner of later you have to replace this and that to make it shoot like CZ

    I agree with joeponds about the 10/22 magazines. They are excellent pieces of equipment. Too bad the rest of the rifle doesn't match up to the magazine. The 10/22 can be MADE into an excellent rifle. IF you spend enough money they will be the equal of a Savage Mk II or a CZ as purchased. As they come from the factory they aren't too great. I own two 10/22s that have a bunch of changes from original and enjoy them. I wouldn't want one that had to stay original.

    As a base for a custom rimfire the 10/22 is an excellent choice.

    Just my two cents on the subject and worth every penny. :D

    As far as I am concerned the best .22 rifles are the old Winchester pump rifles and their clones. The Winchester 1890, 1906, 62 and the Ross & Taurus clones were in production for over 100 years and were all basically the same gun. I have an 1906 with it's second shot out barrel that I don't think anyone would be willing to have me aiming at them out to 100 yards with it. Too bad they don't make them anymore, we are all poorer for it. Just one man's opinion, you asked.

    haha, can't resist getting in on this...

    I own a 10/22 and love it, thought it was the cat's meow till I got a nice marlin .22 mag ;)

    Here in my state a .22 mag is legal for hunting with as well as makes a great plinking gun.

    Not too much gun for a beginnner, cheap ammo, not too loud either.

    I've never owned a cz, would be willing to give one a spin but they just aren't very popular in my area so I haven't had the chance yet.

    really though, it seems that now just about any gun is pretty darn good right out of the box, some may be a little better than the rest, but aside from rossi's and the occasional marlin 1894 I've never been disappointed with a modern gun's accuracy.

    I have. My Marlin 925 isn't very accurate at all. It's not horrible by any stretch but I don't get it out of the safe often. With the exact right ammo (not cheap ammo by any means) it shoots pretty well but even then I have other rimfires that are more accurate.

    No company makes all good rifles or all bad rifles. We just have to look at the trends and hope for the best.

    Hipoint;

    So if you're ever cruising the used racks in that non-CZ section of the country, and see an oddball called BRNO, just buy it immediately, PM me, and I'll reimburse you, and pay the shipping!
