I want to get my g/f into shooting. She wasn't having it with any of my .40's or 380. I also wanted a rifle that I can could hand down to the kid when she's of age (she's only 18 months).
A few questions. And please chime in if you have one of these rifles. I'm going to leave it stock and shoot it that way for a bit. You know, get acclimated to each other. I would like to throw a scope on it at some point. Any opinions on scopes? I'm not shy to spend $200 if it's pretty much worth it. I'll use it for paper shooting, rabbit, stray cats that crap in my garden, moles, etc.
What lead to this purchase is I have next to zero experience with rifles as an adult (32yr old). I figured it's a inexpensive shoe in. Pistols are starting to get boring. Everything i read and every person I've talked to have stated that it's the best outa the box shooting .22 with very little mods needed.
If this rifle is to be modified to be "better" what am I looking at? I didn't get the 455 b/c apparently it's been cheaped out on. plastic where metal should be. Cheap trigger guard. and the creep in the trigger seems a bit much.
Please bless me with your knowledge and experiences. Thanks much.
My CZ UltraLux loves Wolf Match Target or SK Std+ ammo as does most every other CZ owner that I know of. For a scope in your price range I would recommend the Weaver 40/44 6.5-20X44MM AO scope (around $200 shipped). If you want to spend less then the Mueller APV 4.5-14X40MM AO (JoeBobOutfitters.com is a good place to purchase for around $130). The Muellers are loved over on rimfirecentral.com. I owned one and really liked it but I am a benchrest shooter and the Plex Reticle was a little thick for my type of target shooting but it is a very clear, crisp scope for the $$$ and held zero fine. Mueller also has a great transferable warranty and excellent customer service.
