    Sportsman gun centre are doing the precision model for £400 just now. That's where we got ours

    Wanted: .22 Semi Auto

    We've had no issues at all unless they get dirty, but any semi auto suffers in that regard. Ammo wise we have used most standard velocity ammo, but find it likes the eley force ammo best. Blazer we found to be quite a dirty round and needed cleaning more and wasn't as accurate. We even use eley club in it with no issues and as you'd imagine accuracy is even better with those. Accuracy wise when you stick it on a bipod I can get close to my CZ452 shooting at 25 yards. It really is that good. Much better than a semi auto should ever be, though the Anschutz barrel has a lot to do with that.

    Don't discount the MSR mate. It shoots amazingly accurately. Both myself and the father in law have 1 and you'd be surprised how well they shoot. Keep them clean (I clean mine every 500 rounds or so) and you have no issues.

    Better problems to have

    I don't think you can here unless it's new old stock. I know you could still get the 452 in left hand version for a while after the 455 came out, but not sure if that's still the case.

    One of these.

    Better problems to have

    Well finally bought a new rifle. Was all for getting the new Tikka T1x and seen 1 for sale locally that I was going to pop in for a look-see. But had a quick squint on guntrader to see what else was in that sort of price range and came across a CZ455 precision trainer which comes with a Manners T4 stock and heavy varmint barrel. Best price I had seen new for these was around £760 and this was up for £495 brand new. So quick look at the reviews and next day deposit was paid. Got the rifle yesterday and then fitted it with a cheap scope I had laying around till I get something decent and added a lighter trigger spring and bipod. Managed to get to the local club tonight to see how it shot and after 4 shots to zero the scope it's by far the most accurate rifle I've shot even with the barrel not even settled in yet. Put a group of 10 shots all touching and within 0.2" (25 yards so not exactly pushing it) without trying hard. This was with different ammo. Some cheap American eagle 40 grain and also some Remington T22 (I think). Didn't even get a chance to try the eley club I usually use. Really excited to see what it can really do once the barrel has been shot in and I stick a decent scope and bipod on it.

    Sounds like a very accurate little rifle. Only thing I don't like about it is the fact it doesnt have a cheek riser. I know this would cost more but I'd happily pay a bit more than having to fork out for a new stock for this reason.

    How are you guys finding the rifle? I'm still in the market for a rimfire rifle and have this on the list of possibilities. I'm between this, a second hand Anschutz 1710 and a Lithgow LA101.

    Some decent groups in there for 50 yards. Will be good to see what's its like with a few hundred rounds through the barrel.

    Do you feel it needs a cheek riser?

    Nice to know it’s up to expectations for your kind of shooting and is a keeper. How did you find the action, was it up to usual Tikka standards?

    Double post

    Yes obviously you would be trying a variety of ammo on the Tikka anyway to see what’s best. What I meant was to then use the best for both and then a comparison from there. Would only be fair to both rifles that way

    Do u have another/friend that has another .22lr you could do a side by side comparison with? Would make for a great read and proper review. Does it seem I’m a bit excited by this rifle much? Haha.
