    bolt .22

    so i strolled in to a gun shop , was going to grab a high quality jw15 in wood but got told they no longer make them in wood
    held a synthetic one felt like i would snap it in half if i closed the bolt to hard

    so what do you buy if you want a bolt 22 in wood nowdays??

    came across a cz 455 that has two barrels ,one in 22 and one in 17, looked nice anyone used or got one?

    yep not long bought one and love it.
    its no more accurate than my savage but much nicer build quality.
    I have tried the .17 barrel and it seems to be a tack driver but will mainly use the .22.
    My boys were dialling up to 200 yds and hitting a 6 inch plate consistentlywith the .22 other day so thats some cheap fun!

    what sort of savage to you have?

    how do you find the barrel to swap?
    looks a good way to get two calibers with out two guns

    Because with a little bit of work they shoot extremely well from a little shooter you would not be too worried about getting knocked around. I bought one for the girls and it is shooting about 1/2" at 50m. That will mean lots of head shot bunnies for the pot.

    I suppose if you look at them purely as a tool and you are lucky enough to find one that shoots (they are really hit and miss), has the bore in the centre of the barrel and have some time to spend fixing things that really should be done at the factory hey are ok, or spend another hundy and get a second hand marlin which is way nicer?
    Good on ya for getting it to shoot, I just like nice things so a Norinco will never be an option for me, even the .22 I am going to cut down for my youngster is a Brno model 2 (albeit one that has had a tough life and will be getting a new lease with this project!)

    I never buy things considering that I am going to damage them, if they get a few bumps as a matter of use then that adds character!

    My jw shoots ok for what it is. My mates one is absolutely shithouse.

    Its the luck of the draw with budget anything not just rifles.

    The vast majority of them turn into really good shooters with a barrel chop and re-crown or even just a tidy up. The off centre bore isn't normally a problem either. the main thing being that suppressor threading needs to be on the bore not o/d.

    My savage is the wood blue with the accutrigger which is the best factory 22 trigger I have tried.it shoots cci minimag into 1/2 at 50 yds which is the same as the cz.
    The cz is a beatifully finished rifle that we have been shooting out to 200yds with a sun optics tacticle scope from steves whokesale.
    The barrel change is a peice of piss and only takes 5 mins.
    I highly recommend either rifle
