Model 2 practice



Log in to see fewer ads
I ordered a Model 2 last year after reading up on them here and wanted to thank the forum for providing a place to learn. My niece and youngest daughter (bother actually young women) out to practice yesterday since my niece just finished her peace officer training. For a rifle that came off the line in 1957 it still tore up hair spray cans just fine.

Model 2

1957 was the first year of production I believe. Please post a picture of the rifle. It will continue to serve well as they were made to last.

I believe 1956 was the first year of production. I have a Model 2 in the 17,000 range with a date stamp of 56.

Those old rifles had better triggers than the later CZ 456. You should be able to adjust the trigger to below three pounds without buying any aftermarket kits. The modern CZs only adjust down to about three and half pounds in my experience.

In addition, your 1957 rifle probably has an adjustment for sear engagement which the later rifles lacked.

You'll never wear out that sixty three year old rifle. I have used mine continually for the last twenty five years and all I did to it was wear the bluing off the bolt knob and the magazine floorplate.

This on is in the 35K range. Trigger breaks pretty clean now, the previous owner may have adjusted it. It was a "missing mag" special. Glad the current production mags work fine.

I believe that the model 2's and 5's from that era would have had the milled bottom magazines, a nice touch if you can find one.
