    Lilja drop in barrels for CZ rimfire

    Anyone using a Lilja barrel in their CZ 455/457 (any calibre) ..........?

    What calibre and profile, and how would you rate the accuracy over factory barrel?

    My cz455 in a Boyd's stock will put 5shots under my thumb (well under moa but unlikely to be 1/2) at 100yards so I don't think it ok be changing it

    @223nut is that .22LR? Standard or varmint weight barrel? At-one stock or something else? Have you bedded the action?

    Yup, also following with interest.
    @hotbarrels, I have a CZ .22LR varmint profile 16” barrel on my 455. It is pillar bedded and epoxy bedded into a Boyds laminate stock.

    The trigger has been lightly worked and I use a Gunworks rimfire suppressor.

    I am interested in this thread simply because of the other cartridge options in the rimfire family. I do have a hankering for a .17”.

    Now that I have found some excellent ammunition I don’t see any reason at all to fiddle with my .22LR barrel.
    Just...say...the...word

    Yes, I have been watching his videos for a while and was part of the reason for my question. I am keen to get a 17HM2 up and running and was thinking that a Lilja my be the best route. There are no barrels in the country at the moment and a 6 month wait to get one in, but with the adjustable head spacing via shims and the Lilja reputation I was thinking it might be worth a punt??

    I contacted Trueflite at the start of the year re a .17 barrel, but they had broken their .17 button and had no plans to replace it.
