a few years ago gave it a "A" rating. i just ran across a back issue while looking for something else. i am interested in the LR version. looks like my LGS price wasnt out of line after a google price search!

CLYDE ARMORY, in bogart on hwy 78. cant miss it, looks like a castle with military trucks parked outside. i THINK it was a .22 magnum, but i didnt pay much attention to that, it may be a .22LR. they also have the very good GECO .22LR ammo at 59.99 a brick, i picked up my third brick today. good luck, go get that CZ512!!!

Very fun rifles! A shop here recently acquired a few and I'm tempted to pick up another one, but already got an Upland Ultralight and a 75B in 40 S&W out of the same shipment, so I'm done for a while.

As a side note, the wood on the ones the shop has now is much better than the first one I got from them a couple years back.

you would think they could use walnut on a $450. .22, henry does it on their $280. lever action! beech is not what i would call a pretty wood, just my opinion!!!

From a strictly utilitarian perspective, beech is arguably the better wood - more stable against humidity changes, denser and harder so less prone to damage.

And you can get some pretty nice samples of beech, too. My UL stock is dense-grain, straight, clear. So beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Edit: Just did some checking...

Turns out that walnut hardness is all over the place depending on the source.

Firing pin

Hi, i have one too in WMR and love it, but still waiting for a replacement firing pin. We are at week 7, not great service, not sure if it's CZ or our local people

I've definitely changed my opinion of beech after purchasing several scouts for myself and the grandkids as well as a trainer and an ultra lux. To me the beech that CZ uses is just as attractive as the usual walnut stock commonly found on most CZs.

Can't compare just wood, the CZ has better build quality all around. I fully trust my 512 to out perform and outlast any Henry 22 I've owned (even if I could find a 22 WMR Henry for $300).

Personally, I haven't seen an autoloader 22 WMR around here with a walnut stock for under $1,000 in the past couple years, so I don't think CZ is really being stingy.

I owned a Henry H001TM, accuracy was "okay" at best, build quality was good but certainly no better than the 512, you might pick up a very used one for $300 these days but a new one at my LGS is about the same price as the CZ 512. Oh and I no longer own the Henry, the CZ512 and every other .22wmr I own would out shoot it with ease. Heck my Ruger 96/22wmr would out shoot it handily.

I've seen some of those around here, "very used" is a euphemism.

The 512 may be the ugly duckling of the lot, and it seems there could be some better QC with the firing pins and triggers.

But... For a 22wmr autoloader in the field, I much prefer mine over my HK300's and 10/22 mag for anything from plinking to hunting. The 300's sure are pretty at the range, and turn some heads at CMP's, but for day to day use, the 512 has them beat.

512

Just bought my first 512, it's the threaded barrel without Irons model. I topped it with a Vortex 2x7 scope with Burris rings. Fingers crossed, sure hope it's a shooter, I plan on using it for squirrel hunting. I was going back and forth between the 512 and a 10-22 carbine(I planed on using the 10-22 for a build project). I ended up picking the 512 because I can always find a 10-22 for sale and the 512 was unique.
