Russian CM-2 Cadet version for an adult?



Log in to see fewer ads
So let me start by saying I'm new to the whole target rifle idea. It started as wanting to get out of my Savage Mark2 with heavy barrel and accutrigger.... its had 2 trips back to savage and I"M DONE! I've aslo since setup a 10/22 for appleseed shoots and have fallen in love with shooting open sights.... So I wandered into my logal gun shop the other day....

I was looking for a

1. very accurate gun
2. shoots inexpensive ammo ( i.e. rimfire .22 )
3. open sights

I do not hunt, this is only for paper

While I was disapointed the they didnt have a CZ452 ( trainer ) in stock, while I was there they took in a used Russian-American Armory CM-2 in trade( the shorter cadet version ) Boy was it comfortable! and the trigger, WOW!

Ok, so by now it is very obvious I've never held a target rifle before.... But I really like the idea!

So, Am I crazy for wanting this thing? The price was in line with a new CZ452 Trainer ( $370) I dont ever see myself shooting in competitions, So is this just overkill?

thanks!

Go...GO...Buy the CM-2 Cadet....now now.
My CM-2 Cadet is in a different leage in the accuracy dept. compared with my two CZ's.
The CZ's are hunting rifles & the CM-2 is a target rifle.
I love my CZ's & are not for sale.

Even being the shorter "Cadet" version? I didnt see the stock dimensions being and different, just the shorter barrel. Is that correct?

The Cadet has a shorter barrel & is smaller in dia., the forearm is a little shorter,
the weigh is about 2.5-3lbs lighter that the Adult version of the CM-2 models.
If I was into 3p shooting I would go for the adult version.
The accuratcy seems to be the same....what I have seen on RFC anyway.

My CM-2 Cadet is used just for paper shooting from the bench rest.

And it is not to fussy about ammo but ya match grade ammo is the best.


On the day I shot those targets, those were the only targets I shot for the fun match's on that day.
Like they aren't the best of 4-10 target tries to be submit for the 25 & 50 yard match's. I think I could have done better...

Here is how my CM-2 Cadet shot last fall with the factory OEM peep sights & cheap ammo.
Now I am a rookie at shooting peep sights...


I paid $400.00 for my CM-2 & was money well spent...
The only thing I have done is set the trigger down to 1lb other than that its bone stock.

Amen to the Swiss view. I have six of the 452s and they are all great rifles. Also have a Cadet and a BB and they are every bit as nice and accurate. Plus you will have something a little different which I personally find interesting.

ok, I pulled the trigger.... traded an "extra" S&W model 10 in on it ( which I only paid $75 for they gave me $220! ) so I have a $180 balance. I just have to decide if I'm going to sell my markII to pay for it or hold on to the savage...

either way, its on hold until I decide.

I got to try the CM-2 out before making up my mind. After a few rounds it was a no brainer

When I bought my CM-2 Adult the dealer had a Cadet also and we compared both rifles and as near as we could tell the only difference was in the barrel length and diameter. The stocks were identical.
I'm very glad I got the Adult model but if you didn't have that option, it is a useless point.

Great to see the "no brainer" part. Those words were bouncing around in my head during my earlier post and glad that I waited for you to say it.

i have both and the cadet is a very handy accurate rifle for the money.
it's light enough to take squirrel hunting as a one shot rifle, and accurate
enough to use for some match shooting.

Cm2

I shot the CM2, and I liked it.
The longer barrel gives you longer sight radius, but no increase in mechanical accuracy. If you put a "bloop tube" on the front of it, you'll have the long sight radius without adding much weight.
If you're shooting paper, you should have something like the CM2, a real target rifle.
Not an "accurate" sporter rifle. I spent a lot of time and money accurizing my 10/22, and it still can't hold a candle to the CM 2, or a Kimber 82, a Winchester 52, or any other target rifle made for punching out the 10-ring of tiny little target at out to 50 meters.

Maybe you guys could help me out with some info on a "bloop tube" sounds like something I may be interested in

I think Charlotte has a bloop tube for her CM-2.

Here's a link on where to get one and some more info on them.

one of the nice things about the cadet is it has a full rail for scope mounting.
the full size one doesn't, the old vostok only have side rail. only vostok with
top rail is some ural 2's.
