Cut for threading length for 452 Varmint HM2?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have my new to me CZ 452 Varmint 17 HM2 at the gunsmith being threaded for suppressor. My 455 American .22 has the short 16" threaded barrel, and I have a longer Euro-threaded with adaptor 17 HMR American. Curious now if I should have told them to cut it all the way down to the legal length, or just thread the last part of what's there. When I don't have the can on the 455, it seems odd. Be another week or two before he gets to mine.

I know a member here GMD1950 did this with 452 in 17m2. Hopefully he will join in and share his insights.

I have 4 17hm2 rifles and all have a 16" barrel and threaded. I'd of gone to 12 or 14 if I could have. It's a very very efficient cartridge. My 10 barreled charger 17hm2 is still clocking 1950fps if I remember correctly.

Missed this thread sorry, my Gunsmith cut my 452 American to 16 1/4 or 16 1/2, doesn't really matter. Doubt I lost 50 fps compared to the original length, with a 5 or 6 inch long suppressor it looks right and I see no loss of accuracy.

I have a 16” barrel on my 455 in .22. Came that way from the factory. Very handy and works well with my Surefire suppressor.

On my Sako Quad in .17 M2, I had it cut to 18”. Not sure it gives that much of a velocity advantage over a 16”, but looks and balances better to me. I think 16” looks kind of stubby on a bolt action. Went with 18” also on my 452 in .22mag.

Latest .17m2 addition is a 18.5 threaded Lothar Walther, may be a good compromise.
