Gunsmith recommendation

476 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  mmsb27
I am looking for this excellent Forum to recommend a gunsmith for my CZ452 American. I need help in simple things like 1. improving trigger creep through Brooks kit or adjustable sear from Brownells, 2. glass-bedding the action and free-floating the barrel, 3. installing/sighting a scope. I recently became handicapped but can use the wheelchair; my 13-year old son shoots pretty well for his age, so I thought the CZ will be excellent for our fun together. A local gunsmith (a dealer, really) is not familiar with CZ rimfire and wanted outrageous sums of money for these 3 things (which would double the cost of the rifle).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
TIA

If it's 22lr, then floating/bedding probably isn't necessary. Spend that money on "premium" glass. A good trigger and either a Weaver, Sightron, Leupold, etc scope would be all that's necessary for target shooting.

Thank you

Dwight and Vepr, for the advice. Yes, the rifle is .22LR, but the trigger feels heavy and creepy. I bought the rifle about 8 months ago, but have not installed the scope (I have Simmons 6-24x44 AO) and have not shot it because of the injury. Now I am able to get out of the house and am hoping to get around and start shooting. I just wanted a gunsmith to set the rifle as I still feel pretty awkward and my son does not know how to deal with the scope.

Thank you for all the advice

What a wonderful Forum! I think I'll just try to mount the scope and get to shooting and figure other things later when/if I get better. Our range is in a nice wooded area with plenty of deer (no hunting, of course), so I will just enjoy my day there, and will bring my son too.
Thanks again!
