CZ452 Style vs CZ455



Log in to see fewer ads
Folks if you had a choice, and I do, to either get an as new never fired CZ452 style( the stainless synthetic model) or a synthetic carbon stock 455 which would you get?

The catch is the 455 is running about 2/3 original retail cost but the 452 style is going for about 99% retail cost.

Get the one you want that touches your heart. You won't care about the price differential the very second the purchase is made and you definitely won't care in a week or so.

I'm with Basstar on this. The cost of the ammo you will shoot will quickly eclipse the difference in cost between the two rifles. So get the one you want to shoot. In terms of accuracy, in my experience it is a roll of the dice between the models. Most of my 452's have shot better "out of the box" compared to my 455's. But the 455's have been tweakable (and tweaked) to hold the clear advantage.

If it was me, and based on purely personal preference, I'd get the Style. I like stainless and the model is relatively hard to find.

The Style is not stainless, it is electroless nickel, still very rust resistant. They are excellent rifles and if it appeals to you I'd go with it as they have never been plentiful and have one of the best synthetic stocks around. The butt pads are very soft and its not unusual for them to deteriorate quite significantly but that is repairable.

Both rifles will probably be equally accurate, and both will be equally reliable, so it would depend upon which one which one looked the "best" to me.

If I did a lot of outdoor shooting in the rain, then it would be the 452.

If you can still buy the Style for retail price, it's a bargain.

I am a 452 snob. The 455's and 457's do not interest me one bit. No rational reason, they just don't "speak to me."

I have a 452 Style and it is a sweet 'lil shooter. (What 452 isn't?)

You know which one I recommend.

No question, I’d get the 452 Style. It’s not stainless, but a “nickel” finish. Very durable and attractive. If it’s the only nice rimfire you may own, get the best you can.

452 every day of the week. And twice on Sunday.

My 452's have been more accurate out of the box than any 455 I have ever owned. The Style is one I do not have......yet.....

With the style be prepared for the butt pad to disintegrate. But still a nice looking rifle.

Im in the tropics so the buttpad will probably degrade even faster if it is prone to. Is there a replacement option?

There is no factory replacement butt pad but only the early Style models with the thick foam recoil pad are known to deteriorate, the later models use hard rubber like many other rifles that, if not damaged, will probably last for decades.
