CZ 513 basic

Just bought a 22 LR in a CZ 513 (I believe it is a variant of a 452/453 series since that was the owners manual that came with it). The trigger leaves much to be desired and I was wondering if anyone knows of an aftermarket trigger that would fit on this rifle. Thanks.

Re: CZ 513 basic

Your 513 is built on the same action as the 452, so I assume the trigger is the same as well, but you should verify this. On my CZ 452 American, I used the Brooks trigger mod to turn that crappy trigger into a crisp lite work of art. It makes a huge difference and has selectable trigger pull weights to meet your personal needs. It takes about 15 minutes to install and is really easy to do. Here's a link to his website:

You may want to drop Eric an email and ask if it will fit your 513 before you order.
On a side note, I found that my 452 really loves Wolf MT or ME ammo. You may want to start there with your testing.

I also have a CZ 452 American, left handed I might add. I love the feel of it and the walnut has lots of figure, but my trigger is crappy as well with lots of creep. I may have to check out that kit. Mine shoots Wolf target and Eley Standard into about 1/2" at 50 yds with the crappy trigger. I know it will do better with a lighter crisp trigger. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: CZ 513 basic

Thought I'd update anyone interested. Took your advice and asked around rimfire cental and found out the the 513 basic is stuck with it's origional trigger. However, I was able to take some 400 grit sandpaper and polish the sear, as whell as stretch the spring and the trigger is much better (it's still no jewel!!).
