CZ452 scout for kids.......and grownup



Log in to see fewer ads
Fellas just wondered of the CZ452 models, how the little scout stacks up? Found one on local classifieds, looks like a good deal off the photos. That LOP and 16" barrel is nice and short for a 9 year old to learn off. Then I thought....this might serve as my go-to 22LR as well. Any other full sized humans out there enjoying this gun as much as the kids do?

Also how do you find the 16" barrel noise wise? Not pistol level noisey?

A great starting rifle and you can put it in a larger stock when your shooter gets bigger.

The Scout in any of its iterations is a winner, we have two stock 452's, a 452 in an American stock, a 452 with a Ultra Lux butt pad, a 455 in a Synthetic stock and now a 457 in a Trainer stock. You might say I'm a fan, the 455 and 456 are threaded too.

Here is my, err, kids 452 scout. Handy little thing. I topped it with a vx1 2-7x28 and installed some sling studs.

Mine with a 4-16x44 Grand Slam is one of my most accurate CZ/BRNO rimfires (of several), and one that I really enjoy shooting. The boys like it too, even though, like me, they're plenty big enough to shoot the full-size models.

Nice Scout set up with the Weaver scope. Yes they are very accurate little rifles and have the trigger of the other 452's instead of the trigger like a 513 which is another accurate model but has a poor trigger set up but it can be made better.

Be very careful dealing with 452 scout “kids”rifles bud. That’s the one that sucked me into the cz underworld. Subsequently buying about 6-7 more cz rimfires. Just look at the 452 scout as a gateway rimfire rifle is all I’m saying.
You’ve been warned.........now buy the thing and make some memories with ya kids bud.
Let us know how it turns out,
Big Ed

I don't have a 452 but I have 457 Scout. It is a great rifle! I am positively shocked with it's accuracy.

I am thinking hard about making it a favorite squirrel rifle by putting a Lilja Mach 2 barrel on it. Hate to pay $100 more for the barrel than I paid for the entire rifle.

I bought mine thinking a grandchild rifle. Now I'm thinking they are going to have to arm wrestle me for it!

Bottom left of photo is the Scout with CCI SS. . The .51 is center to center.

If my only motive is to identify a great squirrel getter, I'd be done with this Scout. But alas, I love the higher end rifles as well.

Couple of photos.

I don't need the comp leather but it does put my eye immediately behind the scope without having to adjust. I might remove the ammo holder from this. I will be taking this 17 HMR barrel off this rifle. I put it on to just see what a 5-6" longer barrel would look and feel like. I like it.

I bought it for a 455 full stock in case I want to change from .22 to .17.

Between my three grandsons and myself, there are 5 CZ 452 Scouts. Consistently accurate, the Scout has served to be an excellent first rifle for a young shooter.

noise level

I have two scouts. A 455 and a 452. The 455 barrel is threaded on the end and the 452 isn't. The 455's barrel is 17 inches long and the 452's is 16. Both are louder than a standard 22" barrel but not nearly as loud as a pistol. I would not want to plink at the range with mini mags out of either one without ear protection but I wouldn't hesitate to squirrel hunt with them either. With sub sonic ammo both are fine but its always a good idea to wear plugs or muffs when not hunting even with sub sonic. But the answer to your question is that they are much quieter than a pistol and they are tons of fun.

I have one 452 Scout and two 455 Scouts, and if you wanna stretch it somewhat, a 512 Carbine. and all of them shoot better than my 455 Stainless and my 452 American. Dunno any other way to say it, the little stinkers SHOOT.

Judging by the previous replies, OP, you're clearly in the wrong place if you wanted evidence to stop you from buying a 452 scout....

That being said, my 452 scout with weaver grand slam 4-16 is one of my favorite rifles (even though my stock is as plain as a dark-stained 2x4). I'm a short adult (5' 6.67"), and I don't find the length-of-pull too short for comfortable all-day use. Mine isn't as accurate as my 452 ultra-lux (which is unfathomably accurate), but it shoots half-inch and under groups at 50 yards "all day long" with CCI-std (and even better with Standard SK+). At the end of the day, it's an affordable and high quality rifle that should last as long as someone's taking care of it.
