Colt, I purchased a CZ 452 FS in .22LR about five years ago. I always wanted a nice .22 bolt action rifle and I always liked the wood-to-muzzle stocks so when I saw that CZ made one I put it on the wish list.

I learned about CZ rimfire rifles over at www.rimfirecentral.com where they have a big following. Based on info on that site I ordered a "YoDave" trigger shim/spring kit. For less than $20 my CZ trigger went from pretty good to "wow".

Can't help you with a scope choice as the FS is best used (in my opinion) with iron sights. Maybe one day I'll pick up an "American" and put a decent scope on it.

Thanks. I might grab that kit, but my gun smithing skills are pretty weak. I'm going to stick with the iron sights for a little while at least so there is a possibility I go scopeless too. But i do like the idea of some pin point accuracy at distance with a scope.

I now have 4 cz's. I have two scouts, a 452 left handed lux and a 455 varmit tacticool. I have not had a chance to shoot the varmit, and i only shoot the lux on an indoor range. The scout is a tack driver!! At 25 yards with a crappy scope it shoots one hole groups. Im building the varmit as my "long range" 22. Im looking to get my groups to around 2" at 200 yards. As was suggested before check out rimfire central. There is alot of great info and people there, and they will always help feed the addiction.
