Since Iím now expecting my FAC to arrive in the post imminently, Iím now engaged in the very enjoyable activity of rifle shopping. Well technically, itís still ďjust browsingĒ, but it will rapidly become the real thing. I intended to buy a CZ452 FS to go with the Steyr-Mannlicher stutzen thatís in the virtual order book, to mimic the stalking rifle setup as closely as possible when shooting on the running boar .22 range at the BSRC in Bisley. But since I started looking seriously into availability, Iíve noticed that in the interim, the CZ452 range appears to have been superseded by the CZ455, although most places still seem to stock the 452.
Is there any real difference between the two, or is it just a matter of CZ rationalising the use of parts?
