Right so being a student atm (gone back to do a course) and having tight funds I am looking to pickup a 22LR on a budget, also as my CZ 452 17 HMR is rarely used, I would be looking to swap/sell it to fund the gun. For the record I have been offered in the region of £250-£300 from the RFD's.
There are two RFD's near me and I have available to me to get either
BRNO Model 2E - 22LR , its a full length 22" barrel I believe, had the iron sights still attached (Which I quite like) and has a scope. It is screw cut for a mod that would go infront of the front hooded sight. Up for sale at £200, so buying this would obviously allow me to have money my way (He said he'd stick a mod on it and I'd get about £65 back) Its very light to handle, I would consider having the barrel cut down, BUT I do like having the iron sights there! Think it has a Hawke scope on it. I'm not fussed on the scope and may look to replace it with a fixed power 4x32 Nikon Prostaff.
The other option is a SAKO Finfire, its also a long barrel, but has had iron sights removed (Still has the marks on barrel where these went) Its heavier to handle, although has a better trigger. it is up for £350 , and has a Nikon Sterling Gold Crown 4-12x50 scope on it.
Opinions please ? Good and bad points about either rifle ?
