    It's a CZ452, .22cal. Very happy with it, haven't had much chance to use it yet, apart from making little groups in a cardboard box on the back yard and shooting some home kill pigs. It's absolutely amazing after using my old break barrel air rifle.

    Here's what happens when you decide to have a clean out of 3 nice scopes & 3 nice rifles that you'll just not using & buy a "do everything fun gun"

    PS - Yes the true "train spotter" will see that I'm missing two ring screws, brought those PRW rings months ago & then discovered they were missing, so will sort before I take to the range & pop it's Cherry.

    @Ryan_Songhurst how does that Howa go? Been talking to Mark about one but fair to say his reviews are mixed at best!

    Yeah, it's on my shortlist for a new rifle, but not convinced.

    Yea he wasn't a fan of the rail setups that come with them when I took it to him. Other than that it's a good wee gun, functional and accurate. Two stage trigger isn't my favorite thing in the world and I'm not a fan of plastic bits or magazines on hunting rifles so I would be first in line if a floorplate came out for them. You could spend a shit tonne of money trying to build something lighter.

    The Howa Superlight is an awesome rifle for the money if you're after the "lightest bang for buck"

    Pro's - Stock feels great & has a decent LOP for a super LW, trigger is fine & breaks plenty clean enough for it's purpose ( it's a lw med - big game rifle, no a comp or varmint gun ), you can now get Talleys for it, mine shoots factory ammo just under an inch @ a hundy yards ( impressive for a cheap light weight rifle ) & best of all it's farken light - did I mention that already ?

    Con's - Ditch the shit arsed looking rail ( wtf were they thinking ) butt pad rubber fit's a bit off, the plastic mag fitting is a little shite & the bolt slide is sticky az but for the dollars fuk me I can't complain

    I was running mine with a real lw scope but now running something ( what may look a bit over sized but far more useful for what I want, still under six pound at 2.69kg with the 18x Z5i ) 20" 6.5CM

    Yea being able to have something factory that can be under 3kg suppressed is pretty unreal. I reckon one in 308 would make a neat wee backpack gun

    Bloody nice set up, no wonder you had to sell so many other rifles.
    I would love another one in .223.

    Yeah it a pity that they're only available in such limited cal's, 308 wasn't my first choice but theres non in the country & that was on the shelf so took it


    Seems to be a trend nowadays of giving very limited options when buying stuff, New cars used to come in 16 colours now it seems you have 5 to choose from

    Hah. .243, ideal for repelling the dama dama invaders. One minute we are protecting them and the next minute they are taking over.
