La 101
« on: June 12, 2018, 07:25:43 pm »

Just bought one of these for the missus in 22lr and damn am I impressed. Never thoight anything would ever surpass my old model 2, bit this thing is the bomb. Judging by the materials and build quality, I reckon they will give the brnos a run in longevity stakes. Probably wouldn't get the bigger brother, I like my cfires to be crf, but this thing just oozes quality. And will put everything I have fed it under 20mm at 100m. Even the cheap stuff. Unusually doesn't seem to have a firm facourite so far, but havent tried any match stuff yet. Is wearing a luepold 3x9x40, but will probably end up with my 2x7x36 ziess. Absolutely wrapped. If you don't have a 22, buy one of these now.

Does look impressive but at over 6.5 pounds (polymer) and over 7 pounds (timber) that's a bit heavy for me so I'm out. I'd like to handle one in sporter weight though when/if they make one as I am in the market for another .22 - got a preference for stainless too these days. I see CZ are doing stainless now although there is supposedly a 6 months wait for the next shipment.

Yeah mate might sound like they are heavy, but it's well balanced and quite short. Muzzle heavy, but not in the sense of say a cz or sporter anshutz. They are cerakoted, and this is the only non stainless gun I own. I never was much of one for the different coatings, but after carting a glock around for more than 12 years in conditions my stainless guns got surface rust in a few days, (locked up I admit) I am a pretty strong believer. I never thought I would own any other rimfire than a cz, but these grow on you. If you get a chance, handle one for a while. Seems a bit stubby at first, but awesome to cart around. Would also like a ss cz, but not too keen on the pinned barrels. Just my own choice, other makers have been using them for years with great results.

Just bought a CZ455 in stainless synthetic. Gorgeous bit of gear. Beautifully balanced at only 2.4Kg with a 20.5 inch barrel, which I'll stick in the lathe and shorten to maybe 18 and fit a muzzle cap. Have a few spare Leupold 2.5-8's lying around so that's what it will be wearing when the stupid 28 days is up. Watch this space …….

I recently purchased a Lithgow LA 101 in 17HMR.
I mounted a bi-pod on it and a Bushnell Elite 4 to 16 power scope whit the mil-dot recital.
I got it with the Walnut stock, black finish and it came with the threaded barrel - though I have very little hope of being able to use this legally any time soon.  There is always hope.

The thing is laser accurate and works as expected in every respect.  I am very happy with it.
I caution that with all rifles it is very important to clean the barrel very well before first use but it is especially so with 17HMR.

17HMR is a great caliber, usable out to 200m and shoots very flat.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
