Couple things -
Not thrilled with the lighting in this picture so I may try another later.
This is the sling I have haha not the one I ultimately want for this baby. Iíd like to find a way to adapt an M1907 for this. Bed a front swivel and get some 1 1/4Ē loops.

This finish applying is done at 12 layers. Assembled, and hanging to finish curing. Final buff and such in about four days.

This more accurately represents the Gun. Waited for the best light of the day

CZ 452 Lux

I said I was not going to do trigger workÖ


So there I was with my 3,000 grit lol. The trigger was just way too squishy for me. I really tried to discern that ďshelfĒ right before break. But, it really just wanted to squish all the way through for longer than I wanted. It felt almost like a three stage squish, rub, break. Well we got the squish out, and thereís a sight discernible rub. One that will work itís self smooth in natural life. And then Clean break. Iím thinking this will wear in, remember only five rounds shot, very nicely in a couple sessions.

The stock refinish came out nice. Definitely an improvement IMO.

Enlarged your last photo and it does look like Beech. Excellent refinish job, looks much better than original, well done, hope it shoots as good as it looks..........

Ive been voting beech the whole time. Your refinish job turned out nicely. Good work. Nothing wrong with a 452 trainer. It will last a few lifetimes.
Thats a fine piece you have there!
Enjoy!

Thank you brother! I agree, a Trainer is a fantastic arm. No knock there at all! I appreciate your kind words. I too am glad with how it turned out. I was doing some dry fire practice today and the trigger feels niiice

Congratulations on a fine refinish on your 452. Your patience and deliberate work have brought forth much beauty from that piece of wood.

Let us hope that when you get a chance to check it out at the range or in the field, your investment of time and and skill will be repaid many times over!

*MODERATORS*

I canít seem to edit the thread title. Is there anyway I could change the fact that it says ďLuxĒ? It was an error of judgement on my part and the sellerís when the assumption was made that this wore walnut. It should be a thread about my 452 TRAINER.

Thanks regardless of outcome!

For my range trip this Saturday, I figure Iíll zero with the RWS then fire for group examples from these flavors. Iím going to take some CCI Quiet as well. We will see what this pup likes, then itís squirrels be %%%%ed (oops! Darned!)

My Trainer shoots pretty good with most ammo. Even with what used to be cheap bulk it's still plenty accurate for small varmints. It's probably the best shooting out of the box rimfire I've ever owned, excluding Kidd Supergrade's and stuff like that.
