One Day They Will Thank Me - 452 ZKM Scout
« on: October 25, 2019, 09:35:59 AM »
Decided on a youth sized bolt action .22 rifle for my boys to fire their first shots with. Being a fan of all things Czech, of course I wanted the CZ Scout model for its beautiful “full size quality” fit finish and reputed accuracy. I would want nothing less for my boys. I found one like new condition for a good price and I got it. The 452 ZKM Scout, Discontinued model. The trigger is AH-MAZING! I’ll have to measure the trigger pull because it’s extremely light. Probably the nicest target trigger I have on any gun

Anyone have one of these 452 rifles? How do you like them? There hasn’t been much posted on these here recently

The 452 scout is a great rifle.  Very easy to teach good form & technique on, but accurate and solid enough to last a lifetime.

After my boys moved up to full sized rifles, I started using the scout as my brush gun, easy to carry through scrub and plenty accurate for small game.

Glad you were able to pick one up!

Oh it’s sure a handy little rifle! I just might do the same

Another thing about the Scout, you can easily fit it into an American stock for a taller person to use.

Got one for my girls. They had a blast with it, but easily became bored with the accuracy - all their shots went in to a small group and they didn't appreciate how easy the rifle made them look like great shooters. Still it taught them the basics. I loved it! Bought a Trainer for me. Had the Scout in a full size stock for awhile then traded it away..

Don't panic yet the story has a happy ending...

Found a 16" threaded American that is my go to 22 rifle now. It really checks all the boxes for accuracy and field use.
CZ Fanbot since 1996
