I think I'm going to have to get a CZ, and maybe a Ruger American. The 30.06 American I have is a really nice rifle, especially for the price.


Arc.

I don’t think you will be disappointed. It’s no anschutz by far but it’s a DAMN GOOD rifle.

Very high quality sights, and the tangent sights are properly regulated as such you can actually hit from 25 to 200 meters within the constraints of your ammunition capability.


This then remove the rear sights and add a peep to the scope base

Disagree. The tangent sights of the CZ offer more flexibility than a peep sight. I put a Tech Sight peep rear aperture on my 10/22 and I much prefer the sights on my CZ.

While you don't see a lot of them anymore I can wholeheartedly endorse the Mossberg 340K. I inherited my uncle's and it is a tack driver.

I know my CZ 452 varmint has an adjustable trigger. Think the 455’s do too. Rather easy to do. Only one or two plastic parts on the rifle if I recall. Owners manual even says to drop the hammer after cleaning, no fear of damage to the firing pin or chamber face. Reassuring when training a youngster.

Yup. CZ452 or new production 455

The iron sights are terrific.

My LGS has a CZ 452-2E ZKM for sale, used. I can't seem to find a price on them with internet searches.
What would be a decent price ceiling on such a rifle?

Arcwelder is one of the moderators. I think it's okay to refresh one of his posts.

Way back, when I was in High School, back in the mid 60's, just outside Chicago, We had a rifle club.
We would meet every Friday after school in the basement in the rotunda of the school. There was a rifle range down there left over from who knows when. The school had a rack of Mossberg .22, single shot rifles with quality iron sights. The stocks were VERY beefy, you knew you were handling a "real" no nonsense firearm. They were very accurate!
I feel the rifles must have been some kind of a military issue used in training.
I don't know what model those guns were but would love to pick one up, probably for a very reasonable price.

It was about a $400 rifle when last it was a new production item, maybe 4 or 5 years ago. Now that CZ is well into their 457 lineup, making the 452 a couple of "generations" old. Regardless, CZ makes great rimfire bolt guns so I'd say its value at retail would be about 80 or so percent of what it sold for new (so about the low 300s today), depending upon condition of course.

My son still has his 1903 (64 action), was his primary rifle in his elementary school years, amazingly accurate.

And haven't seen a post from arc in a long time.

is there a way to tell the model numbers on the vintage stuff?

mine is basically identical to yours, from the action forward,

I have a pistol grip, in the marksman typs stock sense, with 2 spaces to put your thumb, (not a thumbhole) and a more standard stock with adjustable (up down, not a hook) butt plate,

it's not be modified, (like as you know some shooters like to)

still have the original box for the sights as well, buy my forward handgrip is a Freeland

I just bought a new CZ 457 American and I am very happy and impressed with it. Great trigger right out of the box, really accurate and a beautiful rifle.
