New CZ 455 Rifle
« on: August 26, 2017, 01:55:01 PM »

I had been thinking about adding a CZ .22 rifle to the collection for some time but just never found a deal on one until a few days ago when a friend of mine asked if I knew anyone who might be interested in his low mileage 455 (2016 model with less than 500 rounds).  I asked what he wanted and when he quoted a price that was 65% of new ones I've seen (and even better without tax and/or FFL fee), I said SOLD ;).












After a complete clean and lube I took it to the range this morning for its maiden voyage.  The following is the initial target (10 rounds of M-22 @ 15 yards, standing with no support).  Eight rounds grouped @ .58" with the full ten round group coming in @ .89".  While 15 yards is certainly "up close", I'm not disappointed with its performance and excited to add a scope and see what it can do from a reasonable distance off the bench :)

Once I add a scope, get it dialed in and break out the match grade ammo, I'm hoping it will do even better at 50 yards.

Nice, just got my new 455 Ultra Match cleaned and ready to go. Going to hit the range tomorrow morning first thing. If it shoots as well as I think it will, then a scope is in order. You done good.

That looks like it has a "new gun" smell to it  ;D

Ultra Match is a fantastic rifle with a scope. Very capable of sub-moa at 100 yards. I love mine

You have just purchased my favorite firearm of all time.  I am no marksman, but I can plink small pill bottles at 75 yards with open sights using my 455 lux.  Sure, it might take me a moment to get on target, but nothing is more fun than shooting at the home range with the 455 with my dad and my son.  Enjoy. Enjoy. Enjoy.
