Congratulations! I have a couple of CZ rifles and they are quality firearms. I had to do some looking, but I too found a like new, used 452 with the Mannlicher stock. I also scrounged up a CZ 527 carbine in .223. Great little rifle and I understand they make it also in 7.62X39
Thanks for the nice write up... I always wondered how the European stock design would work out as per fit and cheek weld.
