Doing my part to take a short break from the political posts and to contribute to firearms discussions. I took my 22LR CZ455 Rustic Trainer to the silhouette range Saturday and had a great time ringing the guajalotes at 75m. I forgot how this rifle performed, it'd been so long. This thing shoots like a dream...so much so that after this range trip I pretty much decided to sell off 2 of my other 22LR rifles.

So, at what price point do these glorious CZ 455's .22LR rifles decide to come stay at your house and play nice with you?

I too love my CZ’s. The only 455 I have is a highly modified Varmint. I also have a 452 lux, 3, 452 Americans and a 452 Scout. With the modifications the 455 is by far the most accurate. With good ammo it consistently shoots 3/8 groups at 50 yds.

So what do the CZ 452 & CZ 455 mavens think about the CZ 457? It looks like some of the 457 modifications are pretty good, but I am not yet a member of this tribe.

My only rimfire bolt action is a Marlin 25MN .22 WMR. It shoots nice groups, but I haven't shot it in a while, so I can't remember the group size.

I don’t have a 457 nor do I intend to get one but from what I’ve heard they are as good as or better than the 452’s. I really need to get rid of two of the 452 Americans that I have but I’ve never sold a firearm and don’t want to start now, besides they are so darn purdy and very accurate.

Just sold my two Marlins last night. An XT-22 and M60 to a buddy for his grandkids. Cool!

$329.99 for the Trainer; got it a few months before the 457 introduction, and got the scope at a swap meet for $25. They stick it to you for the magazines, though; $34 for the plastic ones, more for the steel ones if you can find them any more.

Interdasting, most die-hards say the 452 is the way to go, because the 455s suck. I've only ever had the 455, and it shoots great. I bet that Lux is a joy to shoot!

The 452 lux and the 452 trainer are the same rifle except for the stock. The trainer is beech and the lux is walnut. I believe the 455’s are the same way. The 452 ultra lux is also a beech stock with a 28 inch barrel. Also a great shooter.

Ahhh, yes. I was thinking of the Ultra Lux. They are beautiful, and I had wanted one, but that long bbl seems so impractical.
