They are sweet little guns. Factory sights blow, haven't rectified that either.

Light gun grease really helps smooth out the actions. Too many guns you find the owners just use wd-40 everywhere and they don't cycle very smoothly.

Mine was like silk, but it was manufactured in 1963 or so if I remember correctly. I loved that thing, it was my first rifle in 1968 when I was 10. I had gotton a single shot .410 shotgun two years before and sold it to buy the Marlin. Then I sold the Marlin to buy my first handgun at 12 when I bought a Colt Diamondback in .38 spl. Yes the Diamondback was beautiful and worth having to get rid of the Marlin, but I have wanted another Golden 22a ever since and never had the oppertunty to buy one since they are getting more and more rare in good shape for anything near sane money.

14.1 pounds of Russian Olympic Match .22 rifle. In the late '50s and early '60s Russian shooters used these to beat everyone else in the world. This one is a 1961-dated MU-12 single shot, with a double set trigger.

I think it's for a different kind of "rim fire"...

Sure is one roughly hewn hunk of awesomeness. Its amazing how much things have changed in target rifles, now they are very adorned and high tech.

It certainly does look that no effort at all was expended on the stock finish. The metal parts are finely finished,though.

Is there something special to the trigger function?

It looks weird.

That's what's called a set trigger, the forwards one is heavy, you reach forwards and pull it. That "sets" the rear trigger.

Which is super light weight, as in 1oz or so.

This is a fairly common trigger set up for target rifles, and even many older hunting rifles.

There are also single set triggers where you push the trigger forewards and it "clicks" and then its only a few ounces, or you can use it regular and its a couple pounds. These were at one time a popular trigger for hunting rifles. Added expense and complexity has probably explained why they have disappeared from the market.

CZ however has single sets in all their centerfires (I believe) as well as in the 453 rimfires, the 452's have a regular trigger.

CZ's

In my personal opinion there is not a better .22 rimfire made than a CZ. I have lusted after one for years but never seem to have tripped over a deal on one. I had a 527 in .22 Hornet though, it was one of the most accurate rifles I have ever owned.
