Ruger American is alot of rifle for the money. I recall I paid less than $200 for mine. The weak spot is the iron sights. The rear barrel-mounted leaf is not ideal. I am still lookingfor an accwptable set of irons to put on it.

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.


Most likely a Model 44. Prices vary wildly, the last time I looked they were in the 4-600 range. I really have no idea what one would sell for now.

I took a look, that does seem to be the rifle I remember.
Way too expensive for a good one now. I don't see my old eyes dealing with the iron sights and there is no scope mounting unless I had one drilled and taped for a base.

Why Necro a 2 year old thread? I don’t think the OP even posts here anymore? Why not start a new thread?

This thread had lots of good info in it along with a lot of replies from CZ enthusiasts.
Why drop in to a 2 yr old thread to only complain about it?

Every day, the New York Times carries a motto in a box on its front page. "All the News That's Fit to Print," it says. It's been saying it for decades, day in and day out. I imagine most readers of the canonical sheet have long ceased to notice this bannered and flaunted symbol of its mental furniture. I myself check every day to make sure that the bright, smug, pompous, idiotic claim is still there. Then I check to make sure that it still irritates me. If I can still exclaim, under my breath, why do they insult me and what do they take me for and what the hell is it supposed to mean unless it's as obviously complacent and conceited and censorious as it seems to be, then at least I know I still have a pulse. You may wish to choose a more rigorous mental workout but I credit this daily infusion of annoyance with extending my lifespan. -Christopher Hitchens

A perpetual mystery.

I could be wrong, but I would think that the fact threads are no longer locked after a certain period might be a clue that reopening old ones is permitted.

What about the Tikka T1x? How does it stack up against the CZ 455/457?

I have a CZ Super BRNO 2500 that is scary accurate. From what I understand it is a relatively rare rifle in the states. Besides, if I miss I can slap whatever I am aiming at with the 29” barrel. If you can get one grab it. You will not be disappointed.

The other one that I have that is super accurate is an old WWI SMLE trainer.

The other rifles mentioned here I don’t know anything about.
