    you wanted to sell, the difference is huge.
    Spot on, it's a buyers market at the moment. Lots of potential bargains around with people paying off Christmas bills.
    Nice if you have the money to pick and choose.

    So I just did some reading on a European forum and it goes like this (if I understand correctly)

    Brno started making the model 2 in 1956

    In 1967 CZ took over manufacturing but rifles were still marked Brno.

    1974 CZ began making the 452 whilst still producing the model 2 but it was now called the 2E with some slight changes but still marked as a Brno.

    After this time the CZ-Brno relationship became so complicated it is anyone's guess who manufactured what and is beyond the comprehension of most.

    Mine is a 2E and is marked 1986, I liked the look of them for a long time (They are what the Norinco JW rifle copied, of course a lot more refined than a norinco though) and when I saw this one for sale I just had to have it, I paid $750 for it which some may say is a lot for a used 80s bolt action 22 but it is a brilliant little rifle with a really nice action and trigger and shoots lights out tiny little groups

    So to the original poster if your rifle is a Model 2 (not a 2e) then it would be pre 80s and possibly have decent value to somebody.

    Your 2E looks in beautiful condition Ryan.

    You pretty much got it right about Brno/CZ. When CZ took over from Brno in late 67 they continued to use Brno parts until the inventory ran out and then they started to produce their own under the Brno label. The early CZ completely made rifles weren't too crash hot and were quite a bit more rough in their metal finishing. The barrels still shot okay although some claim they weren't as accurate as the earlier Brno made rifles.

    The CZ Model 2 is the made to the same design as the Brno ZKM 452. The Model 2-E is still pretty much exactly the same except for some stock changes such a hogs back shaped butt instead of the earlier straight sloping butt Brno M2, no detent ball in the root of the bolt handle and a slight change to the ejection port.

    CZ upgraded their machinery and QC in the early 80's and started to produce some really nicely finished rifles.

    There was a special edition made with checkering on the fore end but can't recall the year and exact details.

    I used to collect Brno rimfire rifles but that was a while ago now.

    I sold my Model 2E in a fit of stupidity about 2004, but it was anything but original rear sight was removed, remaining step was turned off barrel and barrel shortened to 16 inches, threaded and re-blued. Shot like a demon and i would buy it back if I could find it.

    collecters want unthreaded guns, if they use a silencer it will be a silent kill model

    As soon as you fuck with it the value to a collector is gone , I only use silent kill suppressors for this reason .
