As far as I know the trigger´s the only difference between the two. I´d go for the 453 if the price is right.

I have the 452 varmint myself and it´s a neat little rifle. I´ve installed a trigger kit on mine because I didn´t like the factory trigger, but it was only 15$ on ebay.

Good advice from Aleski, but check the price difference crusty.. I reckon the trigger on the 452 is very good anyway, more than satisfactory for bunnies, foxes and plinking. Are you still getting the .22lr?

Good luck today and have fun on your spending spree!!

If prices between the two were comparable, I'd probably choose the 53. Better to have the set trigger and not need it than find yourself in a situation where you do need it when you don't have it!

The CZ will be accurate, so a quality fixed power scope of about 6x should suit your new rifle well. The effective range of the .22lr round is about 80 metres so a 6 power will suffice for all ranges you'll be shooting. A 33mm objective diameter should do well for shooting during the day but choose a 40mm objective if you'll be spotlighting or shooting at dawn/dusk.

Plinking is simply shooting at non-traditional targets. tin cans, bottles of water, bug spray suspended above a candle () all fit the criteria. And thanks, it has dried up a bit

Plinking

I´m using a cheap Tasco 3-12x40 World Class scope. I don´t really need all that magnification but it´s nice to see the bullet holes on your target I usually shoot at 50 meters and the best 5 shot groups I´ve got so far are 7mm, so the 452/453 is a very accurate gun. You´ll love the set trigger, I´ve tried one on my friends CZ 527.

Here´s my 452 .22lr
