Well guys I picked up my first CZ today , this one is a model 512 22 mag semi auto fit and finish is fine.
Really light weight,it is a little different than what i'm used to but I think I will like it.
Pictures to follow as soon as I get my new storm door hung...

I have a CZ455 American in .22LR and it is very nice. My Marlin 981T will out shoot it every time. I'd like to get my hands on a CZ 452 or Savage MkII Classic. Maybe someday .22LR will show up on the shelves again. :biggrin:

I have the 452 Military Trainer in 17 HMR (w/4-12 Bushnell). CZ makes some wonderful and incredibly accurate rifles. You're gonna love yours!

Good morning 1022,

Congrats on your new rifle. The LGS here has 2 of the 512/22mag models in stock. I looked at one of them on Friday and they are a sweet rifle for sure. I was tempted, but bought an H001TM lever action model instead.

I look forward to your first reports after you have had a chance to put your rifle though it's paces. I may have to make room in the safe for "just one more" :biggrin: rifle..

John

I love mine. It shot a .6" 10 shot group at 50 yards the first time I shot it. The trigger is my only gripe, I did some polishing which smoothed it out but it is still pretty heavy.

We also have a nice collection of CZs, including the 512 in 22 LR. That darn 512 will shoot right there for group size at 50 yards with any of our CZ 22 LR bolts. I also know a guy who shoots a 512 in one of the stock categories in rimfire competition. He and his 512 are much feared.

Mine is a 452 SUPER EXECUTIVE 29" barrel 22LR and I agree, its a absolute tack driver!!



I used to have a 6x18 Trophy but moved it to my Crosman marauder PCP rifle and bought a Simmons side focus 6x18 Prohunter scope. NICE combination. I removed the rear site so I could et the scope as close to the barrel as possible.

A 29" barrel, I'd think that would be a bit to long and would lose some velocity......

With the velocity loss what is your max usable range for hunting and paper punching, and with what ammo? In all honesty the accuracy thing is cool, but other than that is it good for hunting?

I like it a lot for hunting it's quiet with std vel.

It's did that a std 22 LR peaks vel in about 16" and a hyper vel in closer to 18". Even 22 magnums peak by 18" anything else is a loss vel wise.

I do not remember chronograph one it and I have t had a critter complain yet. ;)
