Saw one at a local shop for $89 with scope. Is it based on a CZ or am I thinking of a different rifle?

They sell a CZ copy over which I think is marketed as the "Puma". Some of their rimfires are not bad.

After reading up more info on various rimfire sites I went back and bought it. No range report yet but here are some pics.

The stock is a little rough but not as bad as others. Some owners called the wood "Chinese Balsa".




The scope dates back to the 60's.

That's a nice looking rifle for under $100

I'd buy that for $89.

I think that is Chu wood.

I'd try it for $100

I believe that the Norinco model 4's are a copy of the BRNO rifles not the CZ 452's. While similar, the triggers are different and the quality not quite as good.. I have Norinco KKW -TU training rifle ( K98 Mauser style) It actually shoots quite well. I installed a Russian 3.5 PU scope on mine and was getting 1/4in. groups at 25 yards. In order t get bolt clearance I had to use a DIP (Diversified Innovative Products) 20moa base with a set of tall, 30mm, shimmed rings. There have been several discussions over at Rimfirecentral.com. There is one at a local pawnshop for $129, which I felt was a little high. Pricing of $90 to $100 would be more inline. The wood feels fairly dense and I think the word Balsa does not quite describe the feel and heft of the rifle wood.

Nice looking rifle. Looks to be full sized so it might make a good deer hunting trainer. Plus the old Scopechief alone is worth almost as much as you paid for everything. Good find!
