2009 CMP National Rimfire Sporter Championship
Competitors shooting the CZ 452 dominated O-Class at
There are some very interesting things that the match results show us, I think you will agree, but first I want to recognize some very impressive performances by CZ 452 shooters.
Congratulations to CSM Steven Slee, USAR. Steven won the O-Class (open sights) at the CMP National Rimfire Sporter Championship this weekend at
The CZ 452 was the most popular model in O-Class. 42 shooters competed with the CZ 452 out of 157 registered shooters. Out of the 157, 16 didn’t participate in the equipment survey leaving us 141 rifles identified. Based on that info more than one third of the competitors picked CZ to give them the best performance possible in a national championship match!
CZ rifles were used by 15 of the top 18 shooters. (shooters using H&K, Remington, and TC took places 5, 9, and 16 respectively)
Making this more impressive is that while CZ was the most popular rifle, it was not even close to being the majority represented manufacturer. Almost 2 out of every 3 shooters shot non CZ rifles. Ruger had an impressive showing with 30% shooting their rifles, and their top shooter taking 19th place. Other makes that had a good following were Remington with 10%, TC with 9%, and Marlin with 7%.
