they had a few CZ guns. the action was silky. i didnt dry fire anything (ever)..so no clue on the trigger. CZ guns are beauties..but way more $$..i need an appliance. i have a $50 gift card + $50 rebate..i'm getting the gun for damn near free.

78 cent spring from Ace hardware gives you a sweet 2-3lb trigger. Also adjustable

Standard Weaver style. Just get the right height to clear bolt throw and clear the objective lens.

What scope you going to use?

man I love shooting 22lr. have an old bolt action with a cheap scope that is a hoot and can hit what I can see at 100yds.

they say those savage accu triggers are the bomb.

I believe we all make mistakes but I will not validate your poor choices and/or perversions and subsidize the results of them.

That's not as unusual as one might think. While I generally prefer open or peep sights (driven more by the kinds of rifles I prefer) over scopes, my rifles that do wear them generally cost less than the glass on top. Top quality scopes are not cheap.

My Leopold Mk IV came close to my M1A, By the time you add in the mount and the rings, and a bevy of mags I'm equal to the cost of the rifle

well..

i just ordered an aftermarket gun stock. going for the same "black" look to try to keep it as OEM and unassuming as possible.

it is a tack driver. i am shocked at how good it shoots out of the box. at "Squirrel range", it is one hole accurate.

i just cannot get a good consistent cheek-weld. i could if i was 11 years old, i think. new stock comes in, i assume i will have to schooch the scope back towards me. i'll try it again!!

How do you guys feel about the Ruger American in comparison to CZ and Savage.
Saw one last weekend and it was sure pretty. Of course with the gray laminated stock in .17HMR

I think Anschutz (spelling?) is probably on the ridiculous side of things from a price perspective....

that Ruger is nice. i bought mine for the Accutrigger..jokes on me, since it looks like Ruger got licensed to use the same trigger.

the CZ is friggen NICE. they didnt have the one i wanted in the store, and i had to make a decision..in the end, i elected to go for the less expensive rifle. the CZ i wanted was significantly more.

i dont think you could go wrong.
