Default Since the wife has been in anchorage visiting

The granddaughter, Iíve been doing a few projects around the house.

Yesterday I got out my newest 22mag rifle. A CZ 455 in stainless synthetic configuration. They did not make many of them and are now discontinued. I got it out of the box and put the bolt in. Dug out the new/used Swift 6X riflescope and set of tally steel rings I had bought for it.

It went together pretty easy. After getting the scope crosshairs lined up and the correct distance from my eye, I tightened up the screws holding it together. Then checked clearances. As usual with tally rings they were minimal room. About a 1/4Ē barrel clearance and the same for the bolt. Just like I like them.

Now to get the bench rest out of the barn and get it sighted in. But thatís for another day.

I now have two 22mag revolvers and would like to own a 22mag rifle, but I don't know what I'd do with it.
A couple of days ago I read a story on the CZ455 and the new CZ457 scout, they seem to be top of the line rifles.

I love CZ rimfire rifles. I only wish that I had one in 22 mag as I also swear by the 22 magnum. No 17 HMRs in my house.

My CZ is the 452 in 22 lr. One of my fondest shooting memories was a made with my 452. I was shooting at a USBR sanctioned competition at the county shooting range. I was in the second brace of 4 and lined up to my left were two guys from Illinois shooting Anschutz rifles and on my right was a guy from southern Iowa shooting a Remington 40x. Some of those guys even had their sponsors names on their shirts, shooting bags etc.. It sure was fun shooting up a class and finishing first out of 16 with my $400 dollar rifle wearing a 6X24 Tasco scope and Wolf Match Target ammo.

My going to the woods gun is a Ruger American 22 mag(the 18 inch barrel carbine version). If I'm cutting wood, placing/fixing tree stands or whatever that little carbine is usually close by or at least in the truck. I have killed 2 coyotes and numerous groundhogs with my woods gun. Quite often after the trailer is loaded with wood I wander off with the 22 mag to bag a squirrel or rabbit or both for supper. This gun is but 5 years old, painted camo, wears a Zeiss 6X compact scope and is sure nothing to look at but it has created a lot of old guy memories in the last 5 years!

Pastor I think you have the best of both worlds.....both in rimfire cartridge and rifle. Yup, you need to get to the range....it'll put a smile on your face for sure!

I absolutely hate the assbackwards safety on cz rimfires, so I won't buy one no matter how good they shoot.

The new CZ457 Scout in 22lr only, has a normal safety.

I had a chance about 5 years ago at a gun show to buy a CZ rifle in 22 Mag, fellow wonted 425.00 for it he was almost in tears said he needed the money for some family issues, it was really nice, always wished I had never passed on it.

I have a 455 thumbhole heavy barrel in 22 lr. I bought the 22 mag barrel and did the 5 minute swap. Very easy. very accurate.
