I have been to the range about 6 times and every time i leave thinking this is my favorite gun to shoot period. the finish is beautiful and looks like it was stuck in granpa s closet for 40 yrs. I didnt pull any punches either with a 6-18x 40mil nikon buckmaster scope. Fine hairs and mil dot. Also a yo daves trigger kit which took the little bit of creep out and dropped the trigger to a crisp 1 lbs. She seems to like eley the most. And wolf and rws. With eley sport (cheap) shoots ⅜ groups almost all day. With an 1½ -2 inch at 100yrds on eley club (not so cheap). Will get some target pics up soon.. what do yall think?
Got the same gun. As a dedicated target shooter, I can attest that the factory trigger on kind was horrendous. But the YoDave kit did wonders. I've got my trigger breaking right at 18oz with no creep. You don't put your finger in the trigger guard unless you're ready to shoot.
Mine also has an affinity for Eley Sport. I can shoot that ammo at 50 yards just as good as the match ammo. I've got a Vortex Diamondback 3.5-10x50 on mine. They really are the best target 22 you can buy for less than $500.
That model is $383 @ Whittaker's right now.
I've had my 452 "Style" for 18 months and love it.
I did the Trigger Job, Spring and something else.
It's comparable to my re-worked 10/22.
It's better, now that I have a Rear Bag.
The gilded hunting arms of Kings and Princes, the battle tested guns of War Time Heroes, without ammunition such magnificent weapons are little more than finely machined, well oiled Clubs.
It is Ammunition that makes firearms talk.
