CZ 455 .22 scope and rings suggestions

Ordered cz 455 manlicher stocked .22 that comes without rings. Anyone have one and which rings, etc and scope recommendation? Looked at Nikon Prostaff .22 scope with 3x9 and BDC at shop. Like it but any experiences?
Thanks,

If it's like my 455 it will have metric dimension ring mounting grooves.

I used B Square adapters that clamp onto the grooves, so I could use standard "Weaver style" rings.

Nice rifles for the money.

11 MM rings Sure hope your 455 shoots better than mine did . It just wouldn't shoot well at all . I like the Nikon 3x9 EFR scopes on a 22 they have the AO which is very nice .

I have warne 11mm rings on mine, with a Sightron S1 4-12 AO scope. It shoots really well, it will shoot under an inch at 100 yards with the .22 barrel and the 17 HMR barrel with quality ammo.......

Personal preference, but I've never cared much for using rings that clamp onto a grooved 22 receiver, especially on a higher quality rifle and using what is essentially a 1" tube center fire rifle scope.

There are now multiple choices at various prices, for dovetail adapters that letcha use better rings for a more solid mounting system.

I can't bring myself to put big ugly weaver rings on a sleek rimfire sporter. There are many quality 11 mm and 3/8 rimfire rings out there, a lot tailored to the competitive shooter. I use only 3/8 or 11mm rimfire rings on all of my smallbore competition rifles and have never had any issues with any of them. They cut that dovetail in the receiver for a reason.......

To the OP, BKL makes high quality 11mm rings for rimfire rifles, a lot of competitive shooter use them, myself included

Weaver <span style="font-style: italic">style</span> bases accept a variety of rings made to fit that type of base. I mostly use Burris Zee rings, not Weaver rings.

My Ruger American rimfire came with grooves and is also D/T'd for #12 bases. Went with the bases for a more solid mounting system.

To each their own?

I did the same on my Ruger for the same reason.

Sure, to each there own.......

I know they make multiple different bases to fit different style rings, Weaver, Redfield, Burris, Leupold etc......

I'm just saying that the is nothing wrong at all with using the milled dovetail slot, it is more than solid enough for anything you are doing with a rimfire rifle.............
