CZ 452 Varmint 22 Long Rifle

What does an overworked bladesmith do for fun? Play with guns of course.

Scott just traded the Razorback and a huckleberry knife rig for a CZ 452 Varmint 22 long rifle, and he is in love.

He picked it up on Friday and did the following over the weekend.
  • Pillar bedded the action into the stock
  • Gave it a much needed trigger job
  • Mounted a Leupold VX-III 6.5 x 20 E.F.R. scope with Burris Signature ZEE rings and DIP 11mm - 3/8th Weaver bases
  • Attached a Harris bi-pod
  • Cleaned brown goo out of the barrel (the gunk all CZ owners know well)
  • Polished the stock with Meguiar's Scratch X 2.0 and waxed with Howard's Feed & Wax (great stuff on both counts!)

Not only does the rifle look great, it performs superbly.

The first 25 rounds through the gun shot at 25 yards. The bottom two holes were sighters.

Five shots at 25 yards.

Ten shots at 25 yards.

Five shots at 50 yards.

Five shots at 75 yards.

All groups were shot with Winchester Super-X Subsonic hollowpoints fired from the bi-pod with no rear sand bag rest, and the black squares are 2 x 2 inches.

Even I (Scott's wife) was able to hit 22 ammo boxes from 100 yards. It was a good weekend all around!
