I have been looking at the CZs hard the last few months, particular the CZ 452 Amercian .22lr and the CZ 453 American .22lr (per several members recommendations over the last few years)

Question here: if you were in the market to purchase ONE CZ rifle today to strictly be used for squirrel hunting, and your budget for the gun was $500 or thereabouts (I have been saving a while now), which model would it be, as well as specifics (bbl length, magazine capacity, trigger weight, longs/shorts, etc) and why? I have used a shotgun my entire life but Redblood and Hillbilly Hunter have inspired me over the last few years to take the leap and get after'em with a rifle. Any and all advice and suggestions you offer up will be greatly appreciated. Anyone can chime in with other suggestions as well. Thanks in advance everyone.

Andy, I've been seriously thinking about getting one of the CZ's, too, and mainly for squirrel hunting. However, I'm giving consideration to that CZ autoloader now. I wouldn't expect it to be hardly as accurate, but bet it's better than most .22 autos. Considering I take most of my squirrels between 15 and 30 yards no matter what I'm shooting, anything more accurate than "accurate enough" may not be much advantage.

Seems when I'm squirrel hunting (mainly in August-September) there are often multiple squirrels cutting in a single tree. When one is shot, there are often quick opportunities to get another or two. Even though I can work that bolt as quick as anyone for a 2nd shot, it's an advantage NOT to have to move, even a finger, in being ready to fire a 2nd round. And for some reason, game does not "hear" the action work on an auto, while they can with a bolt gun.

Like you, just trying to consider all the pros & cons. I assume the CZ bolt actions will accommodate a .22 short, which could be an advantage (more quiet), too, while the autos would not.

Don't know if you've done much squirrel hunting, but hunting them with a .22 can be a disadvantage on windy days, as well in not being able to safely take some shots you would otherwise be able with a shotgun. Most of the time, I come home with more squirrels when carrying a shotgun.

Same time of year I will be doing the majority of my squirrel hunting.

Exactly my intent, thus I am hoping RB and HH will chime in at a minimum, as well as any others who have a suggestion. I am all ears.

Been at it 21 years, missing a few while in undergrad and grad school and the two years I lived in New Orleans, but now I am back at it full swing, thus the reason I want to make the jump to rimfire. Plus, a little extra practice shooting a rifle has never hurt anyone to my knowledge.

I expect this will hold true for me as well, but hey, I am up for the extra challenge and heartache. \:\)

Yes! That's the one!

One advantage of a .22 over a shotgun is the "quieter" .22 doesn't seem to "spook" the squirrels as much as a "louder" gun. About the only thing I wish were different with this CZ autoloader is it's barrel length. It's barrel length is shorter (albeit longer than most autoloaders). The CZ bolt actions have longer barrels, and are therefore a little "quieter" in the woods.

Sometimes you can walk up on a big hickory that has say 4 squirrels cutting in it. You can often shoot one with a .22, and the others won't even stop cutting. More times than not, shoot that first one with a shogun, and the others not only stop cutting, but are more interested in looking for whatever made that loud racket. Eventually, one of the squirrels may see you, and all the survivors take off. This just happens less with a .22.

But back to the pro and cons, it's much easier to hit a fleeing squirrel running down a limb with a shotgun! \:\)

The 512 would get a serious look from me as well, and possibly still may, but I have read that every day users like myself (not the gunsmith type) will not like the stock trigger, especially for head shots on squirrels and such. I was reading over at rimfirecentral.com this morning and came across a few of these links. I thought you may be interested to read/view them as well.

sorry for the delay andy. read this thread at work, but i couldnt sign in till i got home. when i purchased my cz, i was looking for the ultimate squirrel rifle for my hunting style and found it. i can honestly say, i have not found a con with this gun. The pros- lightweight, deadly accurate, adjustable trigger, balanced and powerful ejector (something that failed me with hard use on my marlin bolt guns.) my first hunt with mone was opening day 1999, and it ended with a 12 shot limit. had to tinker with the trigger a bit to get the pull weight right (2.5 lbs) and all the creep out but it is amazing now. i have the original 452 american. it is about 3 oz lighter than the new ones, not sure why. i know they make a 453 and a 455, but not sure i know the difference. i had a burris compact 2-9x32 that was optically terribe. replaced it with leupold rimfire 2-7x28 with extra fine duplex and it is fantastic. simply put, it is the best rifle i have ever held. they are baalnced and sleek. hereis a pic of mine after a limit hunt that took about 90 minutes on an old homestead a couple miles from my house

My neighbor bought the cheapest CZ they had on the rack. I think he paid $260 or so for it. Said it was most accurate 22 he's ever owned. Let us know what you get and show some groups and kills.

If you want extreme quiet and the power of a .22 short. You should look at the Benjamin Marauder .22, It is so quiet you can only hear the bullet smack the squirrel. \:\)

Love me some CZ action, as far as which would be the best squirrel gun...any one of them, its all in what ya like.

The American, the trainer, the Lux & the scout are built on the same 452 action, the difference will be in barrel length, stock & open sights.

I have a scout that I run shorts thru with no problem, but it only has a 16 inch barrel, dont know if I would try a short with the longer barrels tho.( also !!! the bore on a CZ will be slightly smaller than most .22's, so buy a good upper end cleaning rod for a .20 or .17.)

My local dealer has a few in & I'm try'n to decide if I want the American (which I've always wanted) or the trainer witch has open sights, either way I cant go wrong.

For my part I dont think the 453 in .22 is worth the extra cash since a trigger can be bought or worked for less than the difference in price of a 452.

Did some research on this Benjamin Marauder and am very favorably impressed with what I read about it's quietness and accuracy. Some of the air rifles are actually louder than a .22 short, but not this one.

How many times can it be accurately shot before the air chamber needs to be re-filled?

Thanks FF, this is the type of stuff I have been wondering about and wanting to hear. I had kind of gleaned this from what I have read, but was not 100% sure if I had understood it all correctly. Thanks again for the feedback. Is there a particular aftermarket trigger you would recommend for the 452 American?

40 shot's or 4 ea. 10 shot magazines. Then you still have usuable shots, but the POI starts to drop and you lose FPS. The first year I bought one I killed 9 squirrels out of the same hickory tree by sitting there for an hour or so.

I really like my 453. I am gonna fine tune the trigger and besides 3 shots with a flashlight at 35 yards I've never put in on paper.

It lays them down and seems significantly quieter than my 10/22.

Here is the first limit with it from Indiana last Sunday. Took about 90 min but only 5 squirrels. I bow to red blood on these issues and took his recommendation on the scope.

Andy...I'm think'n Timney may be the only one would manufactures a trigger for the CZ's, thers a couple that makes adjustable sear kits and bunches of trigger tricks for the do it yourselfer kinda guy.

Here is anything you've ever wanted to know about anything CZ, these guys (and gals) have figured out every trick in the book and evaluated any product for the CZ.( be sure & dig around in the sticys & check out Sophia's signature line, she has mountains of CZ info ther.)

http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=18

But consider yourself warned...CZ's are addictive.

WES... Think'n I've read post about the shorts not have'n enuff oomph to pass all the way thru the longer barrels, but dont hold me to it.

Some of the CZs like the lux (also called the trainer) and the ultra lux have a really long barrel, but they shoot great.

I've got the 452 american with a 16" barrel and a weaver 2-10 power scope on it. I've beat it up a little but don't plan on ever selling this gun. I would also like to have another 452/3/5 with the full stock and a 1-4x leupold. Now that is a beautiful gun.

I just like the lines/look of that compact scope on that rifle. Plus, most of the time I keep the magnification dialed down anyway so I can find them quicker.

I understand. \:\)
Thought maybe you had this .22 more for rabbits than squirrels. Prefer a little more magnification myself when have a squirrel cutting a hickory nut.

Although they're out of production (by a couple years or so), a similar scope that I like (have two of them) is the Nikon Monarch 1.5-4.5x which has a "straight" flush 20mm objective. It's very small, very light, and glass quality seems somewhere in between the Leupold VX-2 and VX-3.

Took my dedicated CZ squirrel gun out on Saturday afternoon. Went 10 for 12, missing 2 and loosing 2 (one hung in a tree and one lost in some thick stuff on the ground). Brought home 7 greys and 1 fox. There seems to be a good number of squirrels on that farm this year.

I have 5 CZ 452 22 rifles,,I like the 29 inch barreled Ultra Lux the best,,it balances off handed better than any rifle I ever shot,,they are all accurate enough to make a squirrel sniper,,but since I obtained the 452`s Grand Daddy ,a 1957 Model Brno Model #4,I haven`t shot any of the 452`s,,that thing makes a tingle run up my leg,,LOL.
