Light, compact, and a 50 yard parallax.

It's a shame the gloss black finish isn't available anymore as it would look great with a CZ 455 finish.

The two mentioned above are very good for the CZ. Maybe a Leupold Freedom 1.5-4x20mm. Theses are light and very good glass also. Duplex recticle.

I missed the boat on the old tiny 2-7 they used to make.

I've settled for the Mark AR 3-9x with mine in .17hmr.

the 2-7 they make now is still a 28" objective, way smaller than your 3x9.

how tiny was the one they used to make? 28mm is a handsome size scope for a rimfire. 40" must look gigantic

The old one was the 28mm, the newer one is 33. The fixed 4x is still 28mm though. I also wanted the shortness of the old one, it would have allowed me to keep the iron sights (military trainer model) on.

Ohh well, not a huge loss, if the scope goes down I'd just call it a day.

Even 9x seems to be pushing it for ground squirrels at 200+ yards so maybe 7x wouldn't have been enough anyway. 40mm seems a little big, but not as bad as you would think.

I use a Vortex Crossfire 2 6-18x44 w/ adjustable parallax. I liked it because it will focus down to 10 yards! Got the 1 piece rail from CZ. Biggest problem for me was finding a scope that bolt wouldn’t be in the way. Had a Vortex HST on it before- just too much for this little rifle. I’m old & blind as a bat so I need magnification.
