I hope to get a CZ 455 American one day. CZ is a fantastic quality weapon for accuracy, quality and reliability. Can’t think of any other .22 that offers as much value in their price range. 452 or 455, we’re lucky to have either one.

All of these scopes have been switched around or have different mounts so they all need to be re-zeroed. Hope my group with the CZ looks somewhat close to North Country Girl’s.

I think my Winchester 490 may get a new Nikon too. Like the CZ value, these Nikon scopes are deserving of consideration.

That 490 is an oldie, for sure. Very interesting post 64 Winchester era rifle. Love to hear how it shoots.

I haven’t fired the 490 for many years. The last time my vision was good and shot with the standard sights. A bunch of guys from work were plinking so even though I pretty much hit everything it was mainly soda cans and not precise targets. With a good scope it should do well.

The Winchester 490 was made in their plant in Canada and has “Made in Canada” on the barrel. It has the same stock dimensions as the model 70, 88 and 100 with the idea of being an economical companion piece .22 for practice.

They made 32,000 starting in 1974. Winchester shut down the 490 line to make the model-94 30-30 commerative rifles that were introduced in 1976. It had to take time to tear down one line and set up another so I’m thinking most of the 490’s were made in 1974 but remained in the catalog through 1975.

The Winchester is a full-sized rifle and is all blue steel and walnut. The receiver is grooved for 3/8” scope mounts.

I've owned a few .22 magnum revolvers over the years but no rifles. I usually punch paper or plink these days so I don't need a magnum because the ammo is so pricey for more noise and a little kick. The magnum doesn't seem to kill a tin can any quicker.

If I needed a bit more power for a coyote I'd probably pick up a .223 bolt-action CZ because ammo price for .223 is reasonable. My Winchester model-4 Trapper 30-30 will do fine 'til then for anything here in Florida

I pretty much stay with .22 LR for my rimfires because the ammo is less than 1/3 of the price of .22 Magnum

My shooting is usually paper targets, tin cans or other common plinking targets.

If I can justify a specific use for a .22 Magnum rifle there'll be one in the collection.
