CZ 455 American, NOT the 452
I tried a friend's CZ while I was visiting him and was impressed by the quality. I ordered a 455 American as soon as I got home. It arrived at the gun shop in PERFECT order. The wood is gorgeous and the bolt is incredibly smooth. The trigger was a bit on the heavy side for me and had some creep. A simple "poor man's trigger job" took care of that. It now breaks clean at 9 oz with ZERO creep. I cannot say enough about the accuracy of this wonderful rifle. It… Read Full Review

This is just a great little rifle! Look no further if you're looking for an easy, handy, affordable, and most important, ACCURATE rifle in 22LR. Like most rimfire shooters know, you need to take the time to test several (Read: a dozen or more) different types of ammo in order to arrive at a rifles sweet-spot. My PARTICULAR rifle loves Fiocchi M 320 Match ammo,... but yours' might (read: WILL) vary. I coupled this rifle with a Pride Fowler 3-9x32mm scope with a .22LR Rapid Reticule that allows… Read Full Review

Purchased my 452-cz several months ago and have had it to the range three times. It is a.17 cal. full stock version and looks great. I topped it with a Tasco 6-24x42mm scope. Thought I had a winner. Well, not so. Now I'm no expert by any stretch, but I know a bad trigger when I feel it and this one is well beyond bad. The bolt binds and if the clip isn't inserted just perfectly the bolt cant close. For a rifle that is so highly regarded I find it to be sub-standard. As I stated, I'm no expert… Read Full Review

I'm a long-time shooter and have had many firearms pass in and out of my possession over the years. Very few of these have managed to stay in my collection for very long due in large part to their lack of accuracy, reliability, and overall failings in design and usability. I admit that I'm a 'snob' when it comes to firearms with 'repeatable accuracy' being my major criterion. When first purchased, my CZ 452 American in .22LR didn't elicit any special attention from me - I simply needed a fairly… Read Full Review

I have two 452's a 25 year old BRNO RH that is slick and smooth and actually groups 1/2 inch at 50 yds with a 3x fixed scope using CCI GreenTag ammo. the second is a CZ 452 LH to suit my lefthand world. the bolt action is rougher.

With Wolf ammo, shoots 1/2" 50 yd groups all day. Hates Remington ammo. On the same day, from a bench, 2" groups at same 50 yd range. Always a flier or two with every group with the Remington that I don't see with the Wolf ammo. But the rifle comes up and points naturally, is graceful with great lines. Again, best part is it's a great shooter. Standard open "battle" sight is actually accurate to 200 yards although it's really a stretch for a .22. With no wind, you'll hit clays at 200… Read Full Review

I own this CZ 452 American .22 LR rifle and love it. The rifle prefers certain brands of ammo, both for accuracy and reliable feeding. The best ammo for target shooting is Federal GOLD Solid points or the cheaper PMC SCORE MASTER solid points. I get best results from the SCORE MASTER ammo. I only use sub-sonic ammo in mine cause I want the barrel to last forever. I can shoot 0.5 inch - 1.25 inch groups all day long in calm weather… Read Full Review

The CZ 452 American .22 LR is one the best riffle on the market, at a pretty price.
It's coming for Czechoslovakia, or ex-Serbia I believe, hence the loading which is based on Mauser model, German type.
The visor is based on Mauser I think, but that might be presumption, anyway the accuracy is unbelievable, at 50m, you'll get your point in the black.
Anyone looking for a 22 riffle, should seriously consider CZ as a first option, quality compare to price is unbelievable.

CZ rimfire rifles are in my opinion built to the old standards of the classic rifles of the 1930s-1950's. Like the old Winchester 52 and 75 models. Maybe even better. Minimal use of plastics (mags) but steel are still available to those who want them.
Fit and finish are on par with rifles costing triple the price of the CZ rifles… Read Full Review

This is an heirloom quality rifle at a very reasonable price. almost as good as the anshutz and cooper for much less money. If not for the trigger guard i'd put atleast on par with kimber at less than half the price. definitely supperior to the 77/22, again for less money. I expect the prices of these rifles to double in the next 5 years. the trigger is better than anything else close in price and is very cheap and easy to make it truly match grade.

I have a 17 hmr 16" carbine in Left Hand bolt, my first in this calibre, I thought buy a cheap rifle first, then go on to an Anschutz 1717 if it was any good. Guess what the CZ stays, it's very very accurate, I can hit stones the size of a tennis ball from 155 yards (Laser measured) every time from a bipod. Not possible with .22lr, even a good one like mine.

I had never even heard of the CZ line of .22 rifles. I was looking for a bolt action .22 and searched the internet for reviews, comments or anything I could find. The only bad things I read were about the backwards safety and bad trigger pull. When I bought mine I had the trigger tested to see where it was breaking at. It broke cleanly at 2 1/4 pounds out of the box.
I took the new rifle to the range and at 25 yards I had a 5 shot hole. I have never had a .22 do that before. I don't… Read Full Review

I bought a CZ 452 American in .22 LR two years ago. Unlike many current American rim-fire rifles, the CZ is all steel and wood. The extractor and ejector are steel, not sheet metal. The stock is walnut, not walnut finished hardwood. The CZ452 series is built for discerning gun buyers.
I now own 11 CZ 452 series rifles in calibers .17HMR, .17Mach2, .22LR, and .22Magnum. I shoot six inch clay pigeons set at 125 to 200 yards with the .17 and .22 magnum rifles. When I miss, it is my… Read Full 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… Read Full Review
