I vote for CZ 1st, Savage 2nd. I have both, in .17HMR, and 22 MAG. I also had the 77/22, in 22 LR. very nicely made gun, (with a few WTF?"s), but so far, I have not been able to get it to shoot. I will be spending some time with it this summer. I cannot let it go, and have had it for a long time, but I would not go back and buy it again.
