Long story short, my son has earned some money with the intent to by himself a new bolt action. His efforts finally paid off today. We found a 452 Silhouette (sp?) that floated his boat, so it went home with us. This is his first purchase (sorta - him being 15). Anyway, we got home, wiped her down, put a very thin layer of oil around the bolt and installed it. We then found a spent 22 case, pulled the trigger, and I was impressed. It has some pre-travel, but I detected no creep and it broke well - not quite like glass, but way better than most factory triggers I have felt - had to be in the 2-ish pound range. He is 6 feet tall and it just seemed to fit him well. If the accuracy holds up to what CZ's are known for this one should serve him well for years.
We stopped at the LGS and I bought a set of Leupold 11mm dove tail rings. He will now earn the money for his scope. So we have time to idea shop here - I just did not want to put the whole deal of getting him set up on his shoulders so I bought the rings.
To the hive members who are familiar with the CZ I would like to ask a couple of questions: 1) Can the pre-travel be eliminated? (not a big deal by any means - just curious as the trigger was impressive). 2) I want to get him at least a couple of spare mags - where are the best deals? I did go through several pages of this CZ sub-forum looking for some of this info, but nothing jumped out at me and the search function was acting odd.
If anyone has anything they'd like to just toss out there for our consumption other than that posed above, I'd be interested in your comments as this is the 1st CZ to reside in our home.
Thanks all and I look forward to hearing from you.
