Bought new in 2008 (this is 2020) because I thought it was beautiful. Still in the box never fired except 4 shots at 50 meters by the factory according to the little paper target included in the box. Beautiful and smooth precise bolt action. Wood quality must make it the Lux edition by comparing the “Standard” and Lux photos in the accompanying booklet.

This is the best 22 caliber rifle I own ( and I have quite a few). I was raised to shood with iron sights and no scope by my grandfather. He always educated me that a scope can and will fail you. This rifle is a jem in my safe, and as I have many in different calibers… this is my favorite without question. Thank you C Z for a another fine quality firearm.

Being a custom firearm builder, i can only attest that this 452 .22 Military Trainer is the result of the ultimate quality production engineering at CZ USA….. having shot prototype and production weapons for 45 years, this 452 is in a league of its own!! Thank you CZ USA for such a quality product with inherant accuracy……

I got one second hand (2 years ago ), I competition shoot with this & for rabbit hunting. For a 20 year old CZ it is a beauty to fire and I would recommend to anyone. I got lucky with this one

I purchased this rifle back in December 2016 for my daughter to use in iron sight matches and she loves it. I too am very pleased with both the quality and accuracy of the weapon. the factory iron sights are dead on for the yardage increments shown on the rear sight using CCI standard velocity .22. My 9 yo. daughter loves to ring the little 6″ steel plate I have hung at 117 meters (laser range finder) and this rifle does it consistently. Of of the bench using Match quality German ammo i have been able to produce 1/2″ 5 shot groups consistently. For the money I don’t believe that you can get a better quality rifle. It has a nice crisp, even trigger( about 4 lbs) and the machine work on the action is very close tolerance resulting in a very smooth operation. The safety has a very solid actuation and release so there is no accidentally turning it off. The only negative point I have on this rifle is that the steel used if VERY prone to rust. We have had to use it twice in very humid conditions (not wet, no rain), I have literally watched surface rust form over the course of three to four hours. I recommend using a rust inhibiting wipe of some kind and keeping the metal surfaces coated at all times, including the bore.

I bought my CZ452 in 1994.Ive put thousands of rounds through it and never cleaned the barrel. With chestier Power Point hollow points I get 1/2 to 3/4 inch groups at 50 yards all the time. This rifle holds its zero as well so the stock wood must be very stable. Im one inch hi at 50 yds,”on” at 75 yds and 41/2 lo. at 100 yes. [ four and one half low]

After much research I have decided the 452 will be the best rifle to get me back into shooting after I had to hand in my semi auto many years ago here in Australia .

I’ve had mine since 2005 and can hit golf balls at a hundred yards with ease. By far the best .22 around.I can hit better than most people who have scopes on their rifles. Absolutely love it and have taken a lot of small game with it.

This little rifle is beautiful to see and fun to shoot. I’m not a great shooter, but I can hit targets with this rifle and enjoy trying. Mine is the .17HMR version, and I’m enjoying this cartridge/rifle combination.

I have hit center at 100 yds with mine after floating the barrel. Had a firs time shooter holding inside an 8in target at the same 100 yds & most recently took my first 150lb 4-1/2ft seal with it. I can’t wait to own my next cz rifle I think I may look in to a varmint thumb hole or the ultra lux with the extra long barle. I had a guy look at one & say the price was a little spendy for a .22 & after my testimonial I think he was reconsidering the cost of such a fine fire arm! Thank you CZ USA, cant wait till our next hunt & my next purchase ?
Paul Mcclanahan – October 12, 2015:
The 452 training rifle is best 22 cal.anyone could ever own at 100 yards it holds a 1 inch group for me. I hope to purchase another before discontinued. If there another rifle out there better than 452 trainer>> good luck finding it. Thanks C.Z. Great rifle!

I have been using one of these rifles for a couple of years now with my Australian Air Force Cadet squadron. Then this Christmas I was so excited when my mother bought me one for Christmas. This is a good rifle for teaching beginner shooters, or for the experienced shooter wanting to shoot a few cans or do a bit of low cost pest control. This rifle never ceases to impress me whenever use it and I know what ever I am aiming at with have a bit of a hole in it when I pull the trigger. This is a really beautiful and surprisingly durable rifle. A huge credit to those at CZ for creating a great little firearm.

I have just purchased a model 452 training rifle. I took it to the range last week and shot it from a bench rest position at 50 yards. I fired five rounds at a 9/16″ square and put all five shots in 1/2 of the square target. It took up one-half the space of a dime. This is just out of the box with a scope mounted on it. Great rifle.
