...and you could only keep 1 CZ or BRNO rimfire rifle, which one would it be?

I have considered this for myself.
I am still struggling with it.

It starts as a lighthearted exercise, then gets kinda serious.

I kept the 452 Scout. The 452 American, 452 Varmint, 452 Lux, 455 American, 455 American Synthetic, 452 FS, 455 FS and 455 Lux got sold and replaced with a .22LR Tikka T1x, .17 HMR T1x and an Anschutz 1710. I consider it a significant trade up for everything except the Scout. There is nothing else comparable in its niche, IMO.

I only have four CZ rimfire. This 452 American shoots superbly. I just got back for the Lapua Testing Center. I can’t wait to try the lot tested Ammo. I shot this the past weekend with it.

That depends entirely on what factor or factors you value most when making the cuts. We recently sold off a large chunk of our powder burning guns, because we've switched over to mostly air guns, now. We kept only the very best rimfires in terms of accuracy. That's what we used to make our decision, because we are strictly target shooters, now, only using our rimfires to punch paper. We kept 3 CZs, one 453V in 22 LR and one 453V in 17 HMR, plus our 457 MTR. These have been the best of the best as far as group size at 50 and 100 yards. All are proven sub MOA shooters, pushing right down to half MOA with the right ammo (which is now hard to get, sadly).

CZ 452-2E ZKM

I have a CZ 452-2E ZKM w/Leupold 12x mil-dot scope and a 1.5-5x scope which can be mounted or not, depending on whether I want to shoot iron sights, a match at our club or want to shoot a scope offhand. Great flexibility.

CZ 453 VARMINT IN 22LR.

Although, as both my arms would be broken, how could I shoot it?

I don't have that many but the 452 Ultra Lux would stay.

For me it would be my 1956 Brno 2 with trainer stock. It is all steel and walnut with a checkered steel buttplate. The magazine floor plate is milled steel. The trigger lets off at 2 3/4 pounds. It has a 3X9 Burris scope and a 1907 shooting sling adjusted for shooting from the sitting position. The iron sights are adjusted and ready for emergency use. Plus I have a bandolier containing 12 loaded five round polymer magazines. This is the rifle that is used for hunting, pest control, plinking and bench rest shooting. Nothing else matches it for all round practicality.

Bandolier? Do you have a Beret? Sounds like a CZECH partisan

What a horrible situation to be forced to face. Many in other countries have had similar and even worse choices forced upon them. I assume you mean "forced " by government authorities. But that is a political matter we cannot discuss on RFC.

I would keep my CZ 452 Squirrel Rifle. May God preserve us from ever having to give up our constitutional rights.

As for bolt action 22LR, the only 452 i still keep is the American 16(TB). I also have a T1x. i will have a hard time to choose between them, they both shoot great.

I was thinking "forced by finances", as peopke do hit (and hopefully recover from) tough times. And lately, times have been tough for many.

For myself I have, currently all in .22LR:

BRNO Model 1 - its a good looking survivor from 1947, shoots well and has a feel like no other rifle I own.
But its not flexible enough to be "The One.

455 Lux - lucky piece of walnut, has literally shot 1 bullet hole grouos at 25 yards (R50). Sports a Burris Mini 6X with AO. Short, light and handy.
CONTENDER.

455 Varmint - nice walnut, Yo Dave trigger kit, shot it once in some bad conditions and I thought it shot well. Don't know what its ceiling is.
TBD

455 Varmint - standard walnut, Mr Fly trigger (poorly adjusted). I've never shot it.
TBD

455 Varmint (Thumbhole/Fluted) - a very well adjusted Mr Fly trigger, this rifle is extremely accurate. Easily 1/2 MOA with decent ammo, and I feel that it has more to give. It seems lije it could be as good as the 457 is.
CONTENDER.

455 American - very nice walnut, spare 22 WMR barrel, unfired.
TBD

457 Varmint - lovely walnut under typical dark stain, lovely OEM trigger, rifle is 1/8" at 50 yards accurate with the right ammo.
And I like the 457 better than the 455.
CONTENDER

A couple of things to note:
1. I have a spare CZ 455 Varmint barrel and ProVarmint stock, so either of the 2 455 spotters can "go heavy" if I want.
2. For the 3 rifles that are known shooters, I'm never taking them apart, so they have zero configuration flexibility in my eyes.

I think that for me, it comes down to the 455 Lux or the 457 Varmint.
For a guy who really loves sporters but has become a bench shooter its a really tough call...

I have a very nice model 1 and 2 455's with amazing wood. My model 5 shoots good but the 1 looks a lot better. Looks most likely win out. So a 455 would be the keeper.

I'd keep my 457 AT-ONE.

Gerald's turn.

Being forced to turn in your guns or facing financial insolvency are theoretical questions. A more practical question might be "What is your Go To Gun?" Of course the answer to that might change daily if not hourly.
