Just ordered a cz 455

Well I guess didnt really order it but it looks like im going to win it on gun broker. sad part is im bidding on behalf of my sister so she can give it to her husband on his birthday. this is his first 22 of his own. I did a lot of research and the 455 american was the conclusion I came to. its a very nice looking little rifle. looks like it should be fairly easy to walk around and shoot rabbits with. and every CZ I have been around shoots very well. Anyone have any experience with them?

I have a 453 varmint, and it shoots Wolf match VERY well. I like it so much that I am going to buy a Mcmillan stock for it. He should be very happy with it.

Re: Just ordered a cz 455

You made the right choice. That is the one I would have recommended anyway!
They love pillars and bolt work. I have done some bolt work on mine and have installed pillars, and the trigger breaks at 8 oz. It will hold MOA to 300 yards. The reason I say 300 is because I have not gone further yet. My brother is getting one and my dad wants one now too. They are wonderful.

Re: Just ordered a cz 455

You will find the CZ bore tighter than most other .22LR bolt guns, also the chamber is match grade tight. Leading of the throat can be a problem, especially on a new CZ 45X when shooting Stingers or any hyper speed .22LR. I found that JB Paste or Rem 40-X got the lead out the best. My CZ 452 had a somewhat rough throat and first 1/4 of barrel that promoted leading, but a few JB Paste treatments got rid of that. Been using nothing but Rem 40-X lately. 1" groups at 100 yards with cheap CCI Blazer (weight sorted).
