Latest acquisition: CZ 452 American .22 LR
"The Working Man's Anschutz"

I have the 453 American "twin" in .17 HMR. The only difference between the two models is that the 453 has the single set trigger, which I love!

Anyway, you can't get subsonic ammo for .17 HMR, so decided to get the .22 LR sibling. CZ discontinued these models a few years ago, so I have been waiting for one to show up. The newer 455 replaced both these models and, while I am sure they are fine rifles, the move was made to accommodate cheaper manufacturing processes, much like Winchester when they moved from the controlled-round feed of the pre-'64 to the push-feed bolt of the "Classic" line.
