Quick facts : 22 mag in a 6" pistol has the velocity of a 22 rifle.
Hits foxes, coyotes hard out to 150 yds and w good equip n shooter, even more.
Bucks the wind better than 17 caliber.

I recently purchased a CZ 455 American = Cz .22's are Very accurate and will shoot as well as alot more expensive bolt actions out there. I bought mine from cheaper than dirt for $335 in .22lr = the really neat thing about these is that the barrels are interchangible and you can buy 1 in 22/22WMR or 17HMR for the same price. 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.

Default Cz455

Read good reviews in gun mag but they love everything. The concepts been out there awhile but it's been expensive. I've read good n bad about the new 455 from various Internet sights.

New platforms always require some tweaking which is why I never buy one.

The CZ Bruno semi-auto Mdl 611 take down was chambered for the .22 Mag it is a great rifle. I used this rifle for years packed on horses and canoes. It is retired now and lives in the safe.

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and has now been replaced by the Keltec RMR-30, a 30-rds per mag wonder-carbine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!!
