I purchased a #144 spring from Ace however I hears of other people buying a #162A from Fastenal. Actually my factory trigger was not bad all but when I compared it to my son's Kidd trigger on his 10/22 I felt I needed to make my trigger just a crisp and light. I also purchase aperture sights for my 452 and they we're great but I wanted to shoot in iron sight category so I used them once and pulled them off.

I have a 452 Varmint I've been shooting for about 5 years. It will easily hold 1/2" groups at 50 yds with Wolf MT ammo. I put a YoDave kit in it to improve the trigger. Also changed a couple CZ parts for Brno (ejector and magazine well). I think they are a very good rifle for the price.

Appreciate the replies.

DOLLAR BILL, (or any 452 owners)
Is the test target similiar to the one shown here in this listing?

That's probably reasonable. I don't know where my test target is but here's an example I have:

DB, thanks for posting the target.
How large is the 10 ring?

That's the standard versus light rifle target so it should be 0.89"

Ok, the custom Ruger 10 22 I built with a Frederson bull barrel shoots 1/2", but it depends upon the rifleman along with the rifle.

I have both a 452 LH American and a Remington 541T. Both are great shooters. You can't go wrong with either.
I did put another trigger in my 452 while the Remington was good to go as is.

I have a Remington 541T and a Ruger 77/22 that I bought in the early 90s to use in NY state sporter rifle matches. I have also used both in the CMP rimfire matches. With a scope they both made the 7.5 pound weight limit although the Ruger just barely made the limit. I had to add a sling stud to the Remington for the CMP matches. With the Remington, you had to deliberately work the bolt during rapid fire events or otherwise the round might not load if you short stroked it or something similar. Both rifles were very accurate and I feel the Remington has a better trigger. The Ruger was a little more balanced than the Remington but the Ruger's bolt handle does nor clear my scope by much while the Remington bolt works well with my scope. When my son shoots in a competition, he picks the Remington over the Ruger. The Remington 541T is my preference also. So consider the factors I listed - trigger, weight, sling studs, bolt operation with a scope, feeding during rapid fire, balance, and accuracy.
