Very nice!

A few years ago I was high into collecting old American .22 bolt action rifles (and also had my eye on the CZ's). Those long sight radius' are truly magic for accuracy. I never put a glass on those rifles.

It was a surprise to discover that the longer barrels actually slowed down the bullet... that .22lr flies fastest best with a 16" barrel?!?

Today I have a Western Fields single shot .22 with a scope on it that I keep for plinking. All the other fun ones are gone. Glad to see your review of the CZ Ultra Lux!

I shot this in Lockhart and what a delicate little thing. I just got off the M1917 30-06 and the CZ felt like I was holding a dainty teacup with it's miniature bolt. It seemed dead-on at 50 yards with open sights. No bruised shoulder either. :thumbup:

Thanks for posting this review of the CZ 455 Ultra Lux. Nice to know that there are other ultra lux owners out there.
I just purchased one of these beauties in Dec. 2016 and have yet to shoot it. When the bad weather subsides I am taking it out for a spin.
I love small caliber rimfire rifles. In 22 LR I most often use CCI Mini Mags when they are available. I bet the CCI Quiets in this gun is like having a silencer installed.
Congratulations on your acquisition and happy shooting!

Excellent review. I really admire those who can write well.

And the rifles are beauties too.
This is just my opinion, yours may vary and is no less valid.

Fun! Glad to see I'm not the only one with a new 455 (seeing its second outing on Sunday with any luck!)
