Looking to get an accurate .22lr, threaded, and with a good trigger.
Primary use will be for my kids to learn marksmanship, but I’ll use it too.
We’ll use a bipod and rear bag.

Tikka T1x with bravo stock
CZ 457 At One
CA Ranger

I have only handled the Ranger, and it comes with a triggertech trigger. I’m ok with price differences of the three.
Does anyone have experience with these to offer input?

Just this past Christmas, I gave my son a CZ457 Varmint and put it in an XLR Element 3 Chassis. I decided that it was too much fun shooting it, and I bought a T1x and put it in an XLR Element 3 as well.

Put a Gen 1 Viper on them both.

YoDave springs for both of them. The Tikka is way easier to change though.

So they are about as close as you can get.

They both shoot great (only had the CZ out twice and the Tikka out once).

I will say the CZ just feels nicer. Slightly better build quality and just smooth.

Awesome, just the type of info I’m looking for. Thanks!

The CZ has been hiccup free. I had some FTF with the Tikka, but it may have just been a dirty mag.

Good stuff. I think I am going to grab whichever I can find first. Looks like the both are back ordered.

I haven’t actually fired it yet, but gotta say the trigger is a little disappointing. I have not tried to adjust it yet.

Don’t overlook the Bergara B14R. Remington 700 footprint and triggers and stocks all fit. Lots of YouTube videos on them. Mine shoots great and runs flawlessly.
