Thread: 22lr cz trouble

  1. #1

    22lr cz trouble

    Alright guys i got a cz 22lr and i found out that 15 inch up the barrel there's a ring of rust i can even feel it and see it when i push the cleaning rod through it , i think its got a 22 inch barrel so is it worth getting the barrel cut down to legal limit.

    And how much would it roughly cost to get the barrel shornted and re threaded

    Is it worth the hassle in having it done , would it effect the accuracy of rifle to

    Cheers guys i know its my fault for not looking after it , but i always make sure my centerfires are always cleaned though

    Odd place for rust i would've thought? Definitely rust?

    Does it shoot ok? That would be my first check

    Hi nick

    Get it chopped down to just past the rust thread and re crown,

    Well worth the effort and should only set you back about 60.

    As for accuracy it will not matter one bit,

    If it is shooting OK leave it as it is , forget the rust and save your money.

    Don't a lot of ppl have problems with accuracy after chopping CZ's .22lr due to them having a sort of choke / restriction at the end of the barrel

    The CZ barrels are all hammer forged, so CZs claims that the choke lends accuracy is kind of a non-starter. Hammer forging produces the loosest tolerances & any choking is like lipstick on a pig. It won't suffer from losing it, and a decent recrowning job might even improve factory accuracy

    That said, as mentioned earlier if it shoots ok as it is...............?

    Im 100 % its rust because i seen plenty of it haha

    Its not the best for accuracy now it was very accurate before , it was in a cabnit sorted away for along time not being used and not cleaned I think thats what cause it to rust and not being looked after

    Im not keen on the lenght of the barrel as it is due it not being very good in the truck lamping

    Kind of a daft question, I know. But would not shooting 100 rounds or so get rid of the rust and then applying some bore cleaner will do the rest?
