    I'm looking for a new 22LR bolt action for my suppressor. I'm considering both of title rifles. What say you THR folks?

    Is the T-bolt already threaded?

    They make one that is, and it has a compartment in the butt plate to hold an additional mag.

    I have their Sporter model with the maple stock, topped with a Zeiss Conquest, and it shoots as good as it looks. Love the straight pull action.

    I really like my CZ american 16 inch threaded... Although ya could likely flip a coin and be happy with either..

    The Green Reaper version is threaded.

    The CZ is undoubtedly a great rifle.

    But, the T-Bolt is way cooler!

    Especially after watching the Biathlons on TV last winter.

    I really want a straight-pull bolt action rifle now! :D

    Both would be good choices.

    The 455 would give you the option of changing barrels to different calibers if you wanted a threaded HMR, WMR or HM2 somewhere down the road.

    MANY years ago I bought a Browning T-bolt, and it's been a good 22. The coolness factor of a T-bolt just can't be beat!

    The current T Bolt is no doubt a well made little rifle.
    And it is a LITTLE rifle; the green (Why?) one with threaded barrel, weighs 4 lb 9 oz.
    They advertise a "full size stock" though.

    I have not shot one of the new ones, but a friend has one of the original type.
    It takes a firm pull on the straight pull handle to disengage the locking block and get the bolt on the way back. You can't ladyfinger it like you can a well broken in turnbolt.

    I was going to recommend the Russian made Biathalon Basic but the darned thing has been jacked up to $1200! Those were ugly but accurate $300 rifles, but this is ridiculous. Even rediculous.

    I have the 455, but I had to get my 22 lr barrel cut down to 16" and threaded after the fact. It is very quiet and very accurate with a can attached. The Browning T bolt looks and feels like a great little rifle, but the real advantage of the 455 is the ability to have multiple barrels. I have all three calibers for mine, and am planning on getting the 17 hmr barrel threaded next for suppressed rabbit hunting.

    I don't know how quiet you want to be. I've never used a silenced rifle. But I do have the long barrel CZ452 Ultra Lux and with SV ammo the thing is extremely quiet.
