CZ is a damn fine manif. of firearms in general.

For the cost, they are excellent (like lifetime gun, hand down to your kid/grandson excellent)

They definately are a nice product. I recommend them to many people. Its what I wish you could buy from an American company, which seems to have skipped that niche completely.

Marlin/Savage are less by that 50-100 bucks, ruger is more by that 50-100, then you jump to Cooper/Kimber/Anschutz territory.

I do not like CZ's Over Unders. I'd rather have an IZH/Baikal/EAA/RAA, or even a Remington SPR.

Yeah, it's sad that none of the US companies make a 22LR like they used to 30-40 years ago. I learned to shoot with an old Remington probably from DCMP back in the day. Recently I was trying to look for something similar and could not by a US company. I'll probably go with a CZ 252 FS.

I grew up in Australia, as a kid I used to see tons of ancient CZ .22's in gunshops and friends hands. I have shot them, so many different vintages its not even funny. Always have they been accurate, never seen a misfeed on one, the balance and fit have always been exceptionally good. Even the finish on old beaters knocking around in the back of someone's ute cab has always been exceptionally good. Bloody thread has me wanting to go out and get one now...I need another .22 like i need a hole in the head though right now, just bought .22 pistol number 3 lol. Has to be my favorite round out of everything I shoot though. I have owned some seriously nice rifles over the years, including an Anschutz 1813 and a BSA/Martini international...but the CZ's just keep calling my name.

if I had +2000 I'd get this:



Actually I think the BB looks better, but I am certain the anshutz feels nicer.

That gun just really needs a good dark stain.

Not only would it probably feel nicer...but you would not believe the results of an Anschutz, a good shot and a box of Ely Tenex...some serious consistency and accuracy there!

I've never liked the "hump" on the comb. I prefer the "American" or the "Varmint" for the flat comb. But you don't get sights on the varmint.

Really a Varmint and machine a mount for a front target sight and away.

The "American" stock setup never has appealed to me either. Even now my preferred hunting rifle is a Sako L579 forester with the lovely semi-humped, cheekpiece equipped stock. I also like a straight english stock best on my shotguns too...but I am having to "deal" with my Franchi's non-english stock lol.

As a kid, I did most of my shooting with a Mossberg 44US but always lusted after a Win. model 52. The local dealer has one in what appears to be decent shape, although I didn't check the bore, for $750.
Anyone have any knowledge they could share? Thanks.
