I would agree.

Oh, so that's another difference between the Trainer and Lux? Not just the walnut and checkering.

EDIT: Never mind! The Trainer does have pillars as well. Just took my stock off to check. So then all CZs must have them.

Thanks Tom for confirming the pillars .

Both my Varmint and newly acquired Scout have pillars and a lug.

I’m pretty sure all cz 455/457’s have pillars.

The trainer is what first got me interested in CZ’s, I ended up buying one of the new Americans only because I realized I hardly ever use iron sights. If I come across a screaming deal on a cz455 trainer I will probably bite. I dig the safety even though it’s backwards 🙃.

I like having irons as a backup, even though I seldom shoot targets with them any more. Every once in a while I do, just for the fun of it; but my main focus with 22s is seeing how well they can shoot, which means optics.

Plus to me a gun does not look "fully dressed" without irons. Kinda like leaving home without your EDC stuff.....

Factory 455ís donít have pillars unless someone added them .

I made a huge mistake yesterday.

I shot an Anschutz.

A co-worker at the range brought in his 1970s model 1413 target rifle. Peep rear/circle front sights, 2 ounce trigger. Right-handed thumbhole stock. Big hook thingy on the buttstock. Front bipod.

I got five shots, shooting left-handed, with CCI Mini Mag 40gr RN, at 25 yards. No rear bag, just used the hook device with my shoulder.

Shot one, off the paper (8 1/2 x 11"). Didn't have the sights figured out yet.

Shot two, about 1.5" from POA. The trigger got me.

Shots three - five, .25" CTC. Two shots one oval hole, third shot about 2mm away.

G!

Installed this Tech Sight rear peep sight on my Trainer. Adjustable for windage and elevation, and gives 6" more sight radius, for a total of 27". This particular one was for a 10/22, but I think they are all pretty much the same, for a 3/8" or 11mm dovetail.

Here is the CZ 455 page for Tech Sights. There is a separate 452 page too. You can get the rear sight only if you want (scroll down). Also recommend the sight adjusting tool, $5.

I'll let you know how it went at the range later today. I expect that dialing it in at 25 yards will be no problem, given that both the front CZ blade and this sight are adjustable for elevation.

Sighted in at 75 feet with CCI Mini Mag 40gr RN. I wanted to shoot this ammo today through this gun, along with MM 36gr HP and AR Tactical. POA was the bottom of the lower stick-on target, which is 2" diameter. I left it high because I actually intend to mainly shoot subsonic, not HV. I can play with the vertical some more later with SV or something. The vertical stringing is me, not the ammo. Five shots.

Took the Trainer to the outdoor range to stretch its legs a bit.

Shot at 25, 50 and 100 yards with the rear-mounted rail Tech Sight and stock front sight. Ammo is SK Magazine. Measurements are CTC.

POA at 25 and 50 is the middle of the orange stick-on. POA for 100 is the bull.
My last shooting of the day, and it got a little windier the farther out the target was.
Everything a little left of center, so I need to go right one click.
Elevation pretty much perfect @ 50 yards, but I'll bring it up to hit center at 100.

Distance.....# shots.....Group Size............Etc.
25 yards..........5..............0.86"...........4-shot 0.52"
50 yards.........10.............2.80"...........8-shot 0.91"
100 yards.......15.............5.95"...........12-shot 3.22" (eeewww.....but 9-ring is 4")
