Then you can buy different barrels later from CZ America for $125 a piece. It takes 5 minutes to switch from 1 to another. When using .22 LR, a spacer goes in the mag well to make up for the extra room. Look into it at CZ.com (im trying to make space in my safe so having 3 rimfires in 1 rifle helps.
Anytime you revive a thread started over two years ago, you have to buy it a birthday cake
I've been noticing the CZ 455 semi-auto, will wait to see how well they act after a few years...
shakedowns in the .22WMR community are common, as it is a difficult caliber to get right in semi-auto...
and that's putting it Nicely...Ruger stopped & started the 1022M Five Times...finally sold the rights to Magnum Research & VQ...
The two .22WMR semi-auto rifles I currently own that actually Work...and neither are being made currently...Grendel R-31
which I got lucky on...now worth over $1500 according to the latest auction site pricing...
shoots like a freeking DREAM, but it required that I use the Goldenloki.com Keltec tweaks to get it reliable...Marlin 922M
, which I also got lucky on the price...and have yet to sight in at the range (nice Nikon scope on it),
but I've test-fired it and taken a black rat (used ratshot) with it thusfar...functions Quite Well!!
Granted, I also polished the bolt & rails the first time I took it apart for cleaning after purchase...
The Grendel R-31 was created by George Kellgren (Kel-tec/Gren-del, get it?)
and has now been replaced by the Keltec RMR-30, a 30-rds per mag wonder-carbine
The Marlin 922M was killed due to Bill Clinton's Gun Ban of 1994 (as was Grendel, Inc),
and since Marlin semi-auto's are made in NY state, unlikely to return to production...
although if Marlin would give me the contract & a factory, they'd be produced in Florida along with the rest of the Camp series
Florida has no Anti-Gun laws, just Anti-Crook laws!!
