- Probbably the most accurate bolt action .22LR rifle in the world.
- Great price
- Light weight
- Comfortable, pointable
- Very pretty stock and blueing on action and barrel
- Sling Swivel Wood Screw comes standard
- Adjustable, crisp, trigger pull
- Comes with a 5 round detachable magazine
- Scope-friendly, as it has the popular 3/8 (1") rails
Bore is tight, which could make it a bit tough to clean. But there is a very simple solution for that (see review).
The CZ ZKM 452 American .22 LR Gun is pure QUALITY.
If you are looking for the most accurate, dependable bolt-action .22, the 452 American is your answer!
Just ask the CZ folks at Rimfirecentral.com. You'll only hear positive comments about this high quality precision rifle.
A 0.5" group at 50 yards is not a problem for the 452 American. If you just try a little, you can almost always produce sub 0.5" groups.
At 100 yards, 1" groups are easily achieved. I've seen numerous 0.5" groups at 100 yards.
If you want the trigger to break like glass, I reccommend getting the Brookie Trigger Kit for $9.00 at http://www.whittakerguns.com. It's a drop-in, very simple installation. You can see the installation instructions (including simple diagrams) can be found here: http://cz452.com/springkit.html
As for cleaning the tight bore, I just use a .17 cleaning rod, no problem.
