I just got the CZ 452 Military Training Rifle and I am way beyond pleased with it. It's one of those rifles that has already gained permanent status in the gun cabinet. To me anyway it is the absolutely perfect 22 rifle.
Unfortunately, I've not had the time to really do much with the CZ. So far I have been pleasantly surprised by the rifle. Still need to smooth up the trigger a bit, but other than that, it seem pretty good.
Finally got around to cleaning up the trigger on the CZ American I purchased,
Between that and adjusting a bit of slack out of the trigger, I'm happy.
Nice little rifle and quite accurate out of the box. It would be interesting to play with several different brands of ammo to see what it really likes, but that ain't gonna happen in the forseeable future as a result of .22 ammo availability.
Thanks to all who helped me narrow down my choices.
