Yep, looks like a twin of mine! They sure are classy, unique, sweet little rifles! I'm beyond happy I bought mine! Skip and I were talking, and based on the serial #s, I believe our rifles were made around the same time. Skip, ya got great taste in arms, friend!

Not often you see a laminate full stock rifle, but it does lend its self to a nice classy look. I really like the look of the the rifle, I think it s also the darker looking wood color. Not sure it would be so nice looking with a pepper or green color laminate.

Here's what the rifle looks like. As you can see, this stock doesn't lend itself to scoped shooting. 
Great iron sight stock though.

Ted, thanks for the flowers. It helps when the price is right also. Like I told you a couple weeks ago they are light and quick handling and very well balanced. When I worked in a gun shop many years ago I had just purchased a new Corvette and I had to pass up a Mannlicher-Schoenouer in .308 which I had fallen in love with. Then it was fast cars and girls you know what I mean.

I'm confused now...Isn't that a CZ452?  Does to me cause I've been drooling over one of those for a while.  Only thing that might stop me from getting a trianer is teh newer  455 with mulitple barrels...Bucky

Bud, yes that's called, or was called, a 452 "Trainer". I have two. One in .22LR and the other, which I'm considering restocking, is in .17HMR. 

My 452 T in .22LR shoots lights out. I put Tech Sights on it and am VERY happy with it. I highly recommend Tech Sights too. 

However, the 452 T in .17 HMR has been a little disappointing accuracy wise.

It might be operator error, but I've tried (I think) EVERY .17 HMR ammo that's being produced. Pillar bedded the action, recrowned the barrel, fooled with all sorts of different torque settings on the action screws......and the BEST I can do is MOA at 100 yards, off a bench.  
I traded a Glock 17 to a guy for it that never shot it, but put a sweet trigger job on it ta boot. 

All that little .22 452 does is stack rounds on top of each other with most any ammo flavor.

Are you getting perfectly round holes?

Where is the .17HMR printed on the barrel 12 or 9?

Where are the CZ emblems right above the wood?

Is that MOA with iron sights?
What torque settings are you using?
You might ask the guys over at Rimfire Central about it.

I have a 452 Ultra Lux in 22LR that amazes me how well it shoots. When I first purchased it I had to snicker since the rear sight had markings for 300yds. 300yds with a 22LR really? But it does surprisingly well at 300yds. Once I adjusted it, the rear sight markings are right on at 50, 100 and 200yds as well.

You might try varying the torque by 2 in-lbs. Most it seems get the best accuracy with 18 in-lbs. Some find less than 18 works for them and still others find all the way up to I think 25in-lbs.

Roger that, Sparky. I'm getting her rigged up to take back to ye olde rifle range and give it another whirl.
I'ts so 180 degrees opposite of my .22LR 452.  Loco I cinch her up and go and shoot boring bug holes in paper, but not so with the .17HMR. 

Graham, I believe I've tried all of the various makers at one time or another. It either loathes, or barely tolerates them all.

I'm betting that you're bothered by the excessive recoil of the mighty .17HMR.

BTW -- CCI manufactures ALL .17HMR ammo, regardless of brand.

Doesn't mean they are all the same load and doesn't mean that your rifle won't prefer one over another. Just thought it noteworthy that all .17HMR ammo is manufactured in the same CCI plant and velocities are very close between the 4 major brands.
