At 50+ the sights are getting harder to see without glasses. On my model 62 I used a drop of flourescent red paint on the bead and it helped a bunch. Especially at night shooting pests after my chickens. I have a short piece of picatinney rail attatched to the barrel with electrical tape and a Surefire light clamped to it.

Retro Tacti-cool!

It's nice and compact, lightweight, good iron sights, has scope availability, and can take 5 or 10 round detachable mags. The owner had nothing but praise for CZ in general, and from what you guys have said on here, and other reviews I've read, CZ is a great choice. I can pick it up on the day after Christmas.

Thank you everybody! You're all so helpful.
Good choice and excellent rifle!

A couple of suggestions.

First, get over to rimfirecentral.com. There is a whole (very active), sub forum for CZ's there and more information than you can imagine.

Magazines,,, Do some research and figure out if you want steel or plastic and the number of rounds. It is well discussed.

Tell Dad and bro that this would make excellent Christmas gifts. They aren't super cheap and many times, not easy to find. *I* would make factory magazines my first priority. Don't bother with any after market, but your research will bear that out.

Some also use a .17cal cleaning rod instead of a .22 rod, but again, research is your friend here.

Thanks from Super Six 4

Go a step farther with the 10-22. Go to http://www.eabco.com/m1_carbine_ruger_1022_tribute.htm and take a look at the 10-22 in M1 Carbine dress. It is a little extra and will approach the cost of the CZs, but it looks great for a .22.

Thanks! I joined rimfirecentral a few minutes ago. I know that at the same gunshop, the guy said that they have, or would have extra magazines for it. Not sure if they'd be 5 or 10 round ones, though. I like how it will take the 10 round magazines, however I'm not sure about them jamming up or anything-something to research.

Either way, I would suppose that the extra mags (well, the Scout doesn't come with any mags, actually, so it's more like "the mags") at the store would be factory?

savage for a bolt .22, very inexpensive and possibly some of the most accurate out there.

So many choices...

For a bolt action .22 mine is the Marlin 983 12 shot tube fed of .22 mag! Had a CZ once in .308 and thought the safety design and trigger were poor although it was very accurate.

I vote Sig 522. Get the 20" heavy barrel. Shoots great. Rare malfunction. And I'm sure that's .22 ammo related.

Very accurate. With a bench and rest I can do 2" groups all day long with good ammo.

And blast the hell out of clays with the cheap stuff at 100 yrds.

Not sure how that compares to a bolt .22 as I dont own one but it sure puts a smile on my face. And at 4 cents a round there's not guilt afterwards.

Thanks guys-I'll keep these in mind for any future ones I buy...or are allowed to have, if you catch my drift.

Another vote for the CZ 452 or 455. The "Trainer" or "Special" model comes with iron sights. You can add see through scope rings to use both. If you like a light trigger, you can buy the trigger spring kit and make it how you want (Less than $20 and a few minutes to install). The factory trigger is crisp, but it's around 3.5 lbs at it's lightest.

IMO.... this is the best rimfire rifle for the buck. It is very accurate out of the box. Except for an Anschutz or a custom built rifle, they are as accurate as they come. It's common for the CZ's to shoot .5 inch or less groups at 50 yards..... out of the box.

I have a 22" barrel stainless steel Ruger 10/22 that I really like, as far as semi-autos go. As far as bolt actions go I really like my dad's old Remington 512 for hunting.
