CZ 452 Ultra Lux Scope

Hello,

I am looking to mount a scope on this rifle, I would prefer a scope that's objective bell would mount past the rear sight. I have ordered a BSA Platinum because I knew it had the needed tube length. After reading some reviews BSA's quality comes into doubt. So I will be returning it.

So what are your recommendations for a long tube rifle scope? I was hoping a 4-12x40mm nikon prostaff would clear.

Thanks,

Phil

Hi,

I have this scope mounted on my CZ452:

It is an excellent piece of glass.

Good luck,

Rich

Meuller's APV is one of the best rimfire scopes I've owned:

Meuller looks like it might be a winner.

The Mueller and the BSA are gonna be about the same quality and clarity wise, which is... terrible. Go with at least a Nikon quality or better. You'll be glad you did.

I had the BSA Platinum once. Absolute garbage. That's where it ended up too.

This one would work nicely. If you're worried about it hitting the sight, just get a little taller rings.

Yea, I think that will be just the ticket I may just try to trade around for an American model too.

Nice. I had a 4.5-14X40 Buckmasters and it was a good scope. I'd buy the 6-18 in a heartbeat if they didn't look so wonky with the sunshade on.
