CZ 455 Varmint vs Tacticool stock check weld?



Log in to see fewer ads
I held both a Varmint and a Tacticool 455 rifles a week ago and thought they both had identical rise as far as the cheek weld was concerned. I thought I would find the tacticool to be higher. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance.

The pro Varmint & Tacticool are the same shape AFAIK.

I have a CZ455 tacticool and still wound up putting an adjustable kydex cheekrest to get a proper cheek weld. Very similar to karstens:

I would not have drilled out a nicely finished wood stock to do this, but the boyd's black tacticool stock I had no qualms drilling it. Couple guys I shoot leagues with have the CZ455 varmint with the nice stock but they use the fabric cheek pads with straps:

That would be the best solution! Is that available on a factory rifle or only as an aftermarket stock?

It's good to know that both stock have the same Cheek weld. Now the question becomes do I want to spring for a tacticool rifle or just boyd's adjustable riser. . I really want the look of the longer barrel.

Aftermarket from Boyd's. I think about $190. Makes a world of difference for me. It is the most comfortable stock I have ever used.

I think the boyd's stock is all show and no go. I bought the tacticool for a threaded barrel for my 'cans. I wanted the varmint profile barrel and not the american. Two range buddies bought 455 varmints and I just can't get over how good those stocks look.

On the flip side, I had ZERO qualms about painting my stock and dinging it up. Its no show-piece for sure. If I could get the 20" barrel, with the walnut stock, and threaded, that'd be my rifle. I could do it with the 24" barrel, but that'd be 29" of barrel once I added my can.

Yea, that is one thing I find very liberating about that rifle as it has taken a lot of abuse at matches and I don't care if it gets scratched at all I've all ready painted the stock twice, second time with cerakote in OD and it is getting ready for a graphics coat in a PRS trainer theme. I've got somewhere between 6-7k rounds through it and it one of my favorite rifles to grab for fun plinking besides match work.

Kind of like having an old beater truck that you don't care about door dings or scratches.
