Hello All,

I don't have enough posts to qualify to post a WTB in the classifieds yet, and I don't like posting just to post and meet a quota.

I am late to the CZ fanbase, but I finally arrived.

I have 2 SP-01s: one a safety model and the other the tactical.

I also have the PCR compact.

I am looking for a .22lr conversion kit- but was sad to find out that CZ discontinued them.

I have found a few still listed online, but the companies that list them invariably give off huge warning signs of being a fake. Quite a few have addresses that are listed as another business, or a house that is for sale as of 2 months ago. In one case, I found that the actual address and FFL # were listed, but something made me do a check. I found that the phone number they listed was not the same as was listed with the ATF. I called the one on the ATF's website of FFLs to see if he did online sales, or if this company was stealing his reputation. It was a con website.

All the 'legitimate' ones have the kits listed as either 'sold out' or 'discontinued'.

Gunbroker has kits for the polymer ones, but not the steel.

So- anyone have any other suggestions?

Heck, I'd reach out to Europe to see if I can get one, but the barrel is the firearm there so licensing laws for export become an issue.

Thanks for any suggestions.

No one responded but I figured I’d wish you luck. Few people who have them are going to be willing to part with, at least until they die. Only then if their kids are ingrates and are looking to make a quick buck.

In my experience, they are the only .22 conversion that is worth a darn. Mine is utterly reliable.

Quite a few people scratching their heads at CZ’s decision making these days.

Who knows, maybe they are going to be reintroducing the Colt Woodsman.

It’s a shame.

All I've found are scam sites. Nothing 'real' yet.

Even a rip off of MidwayUSA's site.

welcome

if you really really want it, you will do your due diligence and google/search for what you want.

Sorry, no "EASY" button for something and sometime you need to work at to achieve.

If you have any shooting friends or have any shooting club/area, post a "wanted" for what you want, if they allow those things.

then if you have any gun shops/shows i would also head there and be diligently looking/seraching.

same for googling and using any of the gun auction/selling sites, but in the end its all on you more or less.

good luck

I thought that the sp01 kadet kit variant was still available like at optics planet etc..
The kadet 2 kit is the one discontinued.

There’s an SP01 Kadet kit for sale on rimfire central at the moment.

Thanks All,

The SP01 on Rimfirecentral sold before I could log in over there. sigh. There is a P09 version, but not kadet or sp01.

Thanks for the heads up. I will keep watching.

Shutz, opticsplanet is weird. They list the Kadet II kit as backorderable but the SP01 as discontinued. However, talking with CZ indicates the opposite. Well, at least that the Kadet is discontinued and they don't know if the SP01 is coming back or not.

Really strange calls at CZ for what 5 years now.  I have to think the daughter took over management about that time. 


They stripped out a lot of catalog options, unique calibers, and highest machined quality items for a more simple streamlined productio.

Things I am sad CZ dropped

kadet
fullstock bolt actions
moderately priced .22rifles for near $1k options unless you want a plastic stock. 

I do think their .22 bolt action evolution was in part wise as they had several different receiver styles with different action bolts layouts, two or three triggers, different grooved rails sizes.  It was a mess, the 455 was an ok step, the 457 was a doubling of price with some hideous modern stocks that didn’t make a lick of sense.  Ugly modern checkering patterns, engraving model names into the wood, WTF?

The 527 line they screwed up the offerings,...at least the boring stuff they allow into the American market. 

I wanted a 550 fullstock in 6.5x55 and passed on a vintage winchester model 70 featherweight in that caliber because I was going to get a fullstock,.....but the dealer couldn’t get one.  Call up, oh no longer imported.

It’s like they tossed their niche away. 

Other than a P01 or PCR there isn’t much they offer.

Friend -
Read the rules. You can still buy from the existing WTS ads in our Classifieds. I see several Kadet kits listed. All listed sellers can "see" your email address. Just ask them to contact you.
