What was it, and should I have bought it?
« on: February 12, 2005, 05:07:34 PM »
Today I looked at a CZ .22 autoloading target pistol, of a type I have never seen before. It was somewhat like a High Standard .22, straight blowback design and hammerless. The rear sight was adjustable for windage, the front blade for elevation. It had maybe a 5" medium taper barrel.
The stocks were oversize walnut, and the magazine baseplate had a wooden spacer on it to extend it to the bottom of the grips. There were no import markings, and no model markings on it. It said Made in Czechoslovakia so I know it was made pre-93 or before the Czech Republic was formed. The only caliber marking was a .22 in a circle, and the magazine was sized for .22 LR rounds.
The condition was excellent and I was very tempted. I cannot find any reference to it in any of the usual gun books. The price was $350.00. Does anyone know what model it was, or anything about it ? It appeared to be of excellent quality. Thanks.

Mmm, could this be the gun:

This is the CZ 122. I don't think many of them made it to the US.

Nope, not even close. It looked more like a High Standard or Colt Woodsman. The barrel was fixed to the frame, and the rear half/breechblock slid backwards upon firing. I did find mention of a Model 448 target pistol that may be it, but it said little was known about them outside of Czechoslovakia.
