Fella's;

I am informed that CZ has ceased all production of the
452 rimfire models. The last 452's are the Grand Finale
edition, of which only a thousand were made. The G.F. is
supposed to be a high gloss, engraved (and actual
engraving, not rollmarked) and have upgrade wood stocks.
They are currently selling at just under $1,100.00 each.

The left handed 452's are now done also, but I would
expect that new one's will be in the pipeline for a year
or two. The sad thing about that is that the company
repeatedly states that they have no interest in making a
455 lefty version. If that holds true, get a lefty 452
while you still can at a reasonable price. Though all
452 prices are rising.

I know there are several CZ owners on this site & I think
all of us that have rimfires have 452's. Does anybody
out there own a CZ455?

For those interested, the same situation holds true with
the standard action centerfires. The CZ550, with a
Mauser action, is being phased out & the replacement
CZ557 is a push-feed gun.

The mini-Mauser CZ527 remains a Mauser, so far. And, as
far as I know, there are no plans to change that in the
near future. Further down the line, who knows?

They discontinued my CZ Bobwhite 28ga back in 2015. Value has gone
up at least $150 since then. Many of their products seem to have more
human involvement than other companies production or automation,
that is to say not so "stamped out" like an 870 Express.

Endeavor to persevere.

I have a right handed 455 Evolution, with the cutout
blue/tan laminated stock and a heavy barrel. It is in
17 HMR. Nice rifle.

I have a 542 FS in 22 lr.

The 452 has a threaded barrel, like a CF. The 455 has a
clamp on barrel sort of like the 10-22. So the
advantage is you can SWAP barrels on the 455.

IIRC they are keeping the 550 in its african version.

There must be economics involved in all the goings on at
CZ....profit drives all happenings at a business.

The 542 is an ancient design, but has a small cult
following. The 455 with easy interchangeable barrels lets
them and owners switch as all the new RF come on .
