Hi,
As a heads up, be careful when you go to clean that barrel.

My CZ was so tight, I went to a .20 cal cleaning rod, so as not to hurt the rifling?
I invested in a good, one-piece .22 cleaning rod several years ago for my AR's. Best $30 I ever spent. I'd say it's right about .20 caliber because it fits down the barrel of the Ruger with room to spare.

@Scaramouche

And you're, at least, partially to blame for my current obsession with bolt action .22's. Remember that thread back in late Spring/early Summer that you posted about the simple pleasure of plinking with your CZ? That was very well-timed and the photography was brilliant. I was on the verge of picking-up a Tikka T1x after reading about your exploits but, I just liked the RAR a little bit more even though I was gonna have to upgrade the trigger.

Lol, Nothing like an addict helping another addict to start a new addiction. A forum member can start a thread about a certain handgun, rifle or shotgun that I have no interest in but suddenly I'm gathering research and costs of that gun, thinking about how I could enjoy that gun. Honesty, I think most of us are just addicted to ALL guns, never met one we don't like.;)

This thread got me thinking about a new 22 bolt rifle and maybe giving NRL a try. I have an old Marlin 25, but doesn’t get shot much because the Ruger 10/22s are more fun and it has a really terrible trigger. This one peaked my interest:

That is one HELL of a rifle. I’m more of a traditionalist, but Tikka actions are very smooth and if Elisio does the work and it has a Benchmark barrel on it, it will be a laser if you use the right ammo and do your part!
I started using Benchmark barrels recently and they are simply outstanding tubes.

Best of luck on your endeavor! Let us know how it turns out!

Its a PWS T3 Summit. PWS stopped producing them close to 10 years ago at this point. Volquartsen bought the rights and started producing them a few years back. From what I understand, they are the same thing other than a spring swap and some cosmetic changes.

I got kind of deep into .22 rifles a few years ago. Owned a small pile of CZs - best gun for the money out there. I’m down to 2 bolt guns now. CZ 452 Ultra Luxe with Brno aperture sights and a scoped Anschutz 1710. The Anschutz spoils me as it’s so beautifully made. It’s also amazingly accurate.
Other gun in the top pic is my 10/22 International. The receiver is bedded, barrel free floated, breechface has been trued, Bentz match chamber, the crown recut and it has a Kidd trigger and bolt in it. It will shoot match ammo just under 0.5” at 50 yards. I wanted to see just how good I could make a full stock Ruger shoot. Turns out it can shoot pretty darn good!

I’ll try and get up pics of my CZ. The Ultra Luxe is pretty nifty as it has a 28” barrel.

That Anschutz 1710 is awesome! CZ ain't bad either. A fellar can get pretty "deep" in .22s just like 1911s. ;)

I'm beginning to see that myself. As handgun ammo prices skyrocketed to the point of being ridiculous this year ($45 for a box of Federal 115gr 9mm FMJ at the NRA Range in Fairfax, VA), that .22 rifle I had had on the backburner for a couple of years suddenly became a priority. Shot several, decided on a Tikka T1x and promptly went out and bought a Ruger American Rimfire Long Range Target. But that wasn't enough. I wanted another .22 that was more portable than the Ruger. Started looking at CZ's and the Tikka (again) and while browsing the Anschutz eye-candy on a sponsor's site, I came across the Steyr Zephyr II and ordered one of those. WTH. I'd still like to eventually get an Anschutz and/or a Sako Quad but, I won't be surprised if I have four or five nice bolt-action .22's before it's all said and done. They're just a joy to shoot and more importantly, prevent me from dipping into my 9mm and 45 ACP stash.

I see I'm the first to mention one of these in this post. Ruger Precision Rifle in .22LR, took it on a trade as you see it here, Vortex Scope on it. With decent ammo it'll shoot under 1 MOA consistent.

I've had good luck with Romanian M69 Trainer Rifles, my dad still has my Marlin Glenfield Model 60, first gun I bought when I was 16.
