I have a 452 Lux and I really like the tangent open sights.


They work better for me for hunting in thick woods for squirrels than aperture type sights.

My preference would be factory...

It had a scope installed and the prior owner and foolishly removed the sights, front and rear, and did not...

Yes, that is a bit high. in the ballpark of $7-$8 per 100 is more in line with what I would expect to pay.

I suspect you will like it better than Rem subsonic.

Well I went out and fired some ten round groups of the old CCI Subs, the new, as well as the Gemtech 42gr subsonic.


All shot to the same POI, group size was roughly the same.

I actually have a box of the 42gr Gemtech subsonic ammo sitting right in front of me.


I am glad you mentioned it, I will include it in the accuracy tests.

But I compared them side by side. ...

That is a distinct possibility. Commonality of projectile.

I will post accuracy results here.

I likely won't have a good method to test expansion until hunting season.

CCI subsonic - they changed the projectile.

So disappointed.


I have been waiting for YEARS to finally find CCI subsonic in stock.

The long driving band engaged the rifling of my CZ 452 when I closed the bolt. The accuracy was stellar...

My 452 Lux likes wolf MT and CCI SV... But my go to ammo is CCI Sub. Excellent accuracy and smacks squirrels with authority.

I am back home again in Indiana. One of the things I miss most about living in Missouri was the staggering number of squirrels, and the fact that most of them were gray squirrels.

I agree in principle but it looks like the folks who have 455s have found that they will shoot well.

The rear sight is a much bigger deal breaker for me.

That they might reconsider the type of rear sight they are putting on the 455? :(



I appreciate the streamlining purpose of going to a 455 where the actions, stocks, etc are all identical. ...

It's a Lux. It really likes CCI subsonics. It likes them so well, and they work so well on squirrels, I really haven't bothered trying much else. I've shot some Wolf MT, shot about the same as CCI.

It's been a good fall so far! (CZ + squirrels inside)

I've been bringing a lot of these back to the house. They all seem to get eaten before they make it to the freezer though. :bthumb:
