Thread: CZ .22LR 16" or 20" barrel?

  1. #1

    CZ .22LR 16" or 20" barrel?

    Looking at getting a CZ for my dad, but wondering what difference a 16" or 20" barrel will make. They are both heavy vermint barrels. Rifle will be used for rabbiting and the odd target shoot.

    It won't make any difference to accuracy at normal rimfire ranges , I use the 16 inch varmint barrel and I love it much prefer the shorter barrel

    I use a 16 inch barrel 452 very accurate and easier to use from a vehicle

    My 20" was cut down to 14" and made it more accurate that may in part be down to the quality of the new crown.

    The16. 452. inch I found a better balance. The varmint barrels are really accurate not a lot in them, choose which suits you best
    CZ varmint are cracking rifles in a 22 you won't go far wrong with one of them, get a trigger kit from rim fire magic, you won't want to get rid of it. Super guns

    I've got a CZ 452 HMR with a 20" barrel and I'm getting it cut down soon as with a mod on it's way too long for shooting from a vehicle and I find when carrying it over the shoulder it catches on branches or digs in the ground.

    The 16" varmint is a tack driver

    Whichever is the best price, as I'd cut either down to 12 inches

    I always understood that the sub sonic rim fire ammunition produced it's best velocity from a 16" barrel. So why would one go less and lose more of an already low velocity?
