Value of Izhmash CM-2 Cadet



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi guys, I stumbled upon one of these a few years ago in a local gun shop. It was pre owned, and I didn't know anything about it other than price seemed good and it looked like a shooter. I was pleasantly surprised; is the most accurate rimfire I have ever shot! I'm no benchrest shooter but from what I read, this is par for the course with these rifles. It came with single point sling and front globe inserts.

Anyways, I have been bitten by the long range bug and really want a custom action for a build (I am dreaming up a build on a Shilen DGR), and am considering selling my Izhmash. It's in excellent condition, what should I be looking to get out of it?

If you did not decided for sure, I might suggest to keep it or you may regret later. All you may get for your CM-2 will not be a key part in coverage for your $3600 DGR dream.
I had the same bug a while ago and falled into it, but my .22 still with me and I do not feel sorry for that.

Thanks, I have considered that too. It really is a nice rifle, but I rarely shoot rimfire (and usually use my 455 when I do). I have some savage barrels already so the DGR would be a good fit.

Yes it is, I may be wrong but thought I paid $499 when they closed them out but may be wrong, sorry.

In 2008 I bought the adult CM-2 and the Cadet CM-2, both NIB. I paid $505 and $600 respectively.

I wouldn't take a penny less than what I paid for either IF I ever decided to sell. They are superbly accurate with as nice a trigger as you're likely to find on ANY .22 rifle.

Thank you very much for the input! I got a great deal on mine, and as stated, it is incredibly accurate! I have a hard time parting with accurate guns, I just never shoot it. Still will be a tough decision. I do appreciate the info!
