I purchased my CZ 452 Varmint after looking around at different .17 weapons and based on a strong recomendation from our local gunsmith! Glad I did! This is a well built and finished piece of kit. It is great to handle and has proven to be spot on with its ability to hit the spot time after time. Overall I am very happy with the weapon. Certainly great value for the money in this CZ.

I now own a CZ .22RF and a CZ .17HMR.. both rifles are faultless and for what they cost they are great value for money,my .22RF is used mainly for short range work on rabbits etc and the .17HMR on anything up to 150 yards.the .17 HMR is unbelievable it will quite easily group quarter inch at 120 yards and put the round through 2mm steel plate.totally flat shooting zeroed at 50 yards its still bang on at 150.these rifles are amazing and the confidence they bring from knowing where you aim is...

I bought mine last year 2007, and have loads of hunting and target practice enjoyment. I think it is the perfect calibre for all. I have owned a Weirauch HW97K .177 MK1 for 3 years earlier and decided to go for my ticket, did not want a .22 rimfire so after loads of reading and browsing and using a friends decided the 17HMR was for me. Use the rifle correctly and you will benefit from a freezer full of bunnies.Mine is zeroed at 100 yards with a Simmons Pro Sport scope, it works fine, you can... (read more)

I've only taken it out twice and I'm still getting a handle on it but I don't seem to have the cleaning problems that some encounter. Tried Hoppes #9 bore foam and haven't seen any copper fouling yet even after 50 plus rounds in one trip. Ammo: I've used Winchester V-max 17gr and 20gr HP and they're both very good indeed. Not sure about the stopping power sometimes though as I've had runners where bullet's gone through without stopping, moreso the 20gr naturally enough where the .22" would... (read more)

Most people know about the CZ 452 both in .22 and 17HMR so I'm not going to say anything about them, except I love my 452 Varmint in 17HMR and I want to post this article about cleaning a .17 after a bad experience.
I guess most of you will have that cleaning kit comprising of 3 metal rods that screw together with a rotating T handle at one end. Why didn't they think of using a left hand thread so the rods don't unscrew when pushing a jag through?
The last time I used my cleaning kit, the... (read more)
