Question for those with CZ 512 (.22lr) and 452/453/455

I am looking for a new semi .22lr, and everyone is pointing me towards a KIDD because of the accuracy. The one problem is that I can't find any good information on the 512's accuracy in .22lr. Does anyone have a 512 and a CZ bolt gun? I'm very familiar with the 452 and 453, so if you could compare accuracy, I would at least know what I'm dealing with.

I have a 512 carbine in .22LR, and it shoots every bit as well as my 452 American, with like ammo. It shoots almost as well as my three Scouts (a 452 and two 455s). Seriously, they are excellent shooters. I especially like the interchangeability with the boltgun magazines.
I have no experience with a Kidd rifle, but my 512 outshoots my 10/22 with a Green Mountain barrel, and that rifle is no slouch.
I can regularly get groups under a half-inch with Geco Semi-Auto ammo, not once in awhile, regularly. That's plenty good enough, it's not a target rifle, it's a hunting/plinking gun. I really like both my 512s (one is a Magnum). They have been good, reliable rifles.

The 512 is like most other semi rimfire's. Some shoot great, some good, some ok, and some awful. It's just luck of the draw. The reason why Kidd is so highly recommend (by myself included) is because of the quality of the parts and the guaranteed accuracy. Depending on what type of shooting your doing the 512 may be perfectly fine. Not everyone has the same idea of what an accurate rimfire is. I would say the majority of regular shooters would be more than happy with a rifle that will shoot around 1" @50 yards. So if your looking for a plinking/hunting/casual target rifle then the 512 will probably be great. If your looking for a semi to shoot off the bench with consistent accuracy of 1/2" or less @50 yds then you probably want the Kidd. As far as comparing the 513 to the 45's, it's apples to oranges.

Having both I'd agree with Nick and Glenn. The only other thing I'd add is that if you like having unusual rifles the 512 fits the bill. It's fun showing up at the range and having people ask, "Whazzat?"

That said the Kidd will out shoot it but at twice the price.

I pretty much left the same impressions in your other thread. Both my 512s together cost less than one Kidd, but it's about YOUR priorities.

If I had my way, I'd buy a Kidd AND a CZ512...and a 452, and a 455, and a 457 and a couple of Annies, and...
