Iím going to buy one or the other. Leaning toward the Tikka, but havenít even seen one yet. The Ruger is nice. Both are light. Your Thoughts?

I had the Ruger Precision 22 but it was ungainly to me, looking forward to the Tikka.

I LOVE the idea that tikka rimfire and conterfire rifles are designed for the same stock pattern. Seems so brilliant that everyone should do it.
Eventually I want a custom tikka and seems awesome to shoot both in one nice stock.

I don't see how you could pass up the T1x given Tikka's reputation for quality and value. If it had been out when I decked out my Ruger 10/22, I would have bought it in a second and left the 10/22 as-is.

I've actually heard pretty mediocre reviews of the Ruger American for accuracy. The Target model does pretty well, but the regular non-Target models are just so-so. At least for a bolt gun I mean. My 10/22 with a $100 barrel will outshoot the non-Target models from what I've seen.

The only ones to cater to the lefties as far as I know.

I only had one CZ and won't ever own another. Took a trigger kit to have a decent trigger, and even then, it shot like complete carp. I got on rimfirecentral forum, and posted the thread asking for advice and I got tons of suggestions for different mods to the gun to make it shoot decent. Found out that it seemed most folks had to mess around with them to get decent results. I suppose I'd just been spoiled with Savage and Tikka, but none of them required anything other than sanding the stock to float the barrel and they all shot lights out.

I do love the concept of CZ. Beautiful rifles built with quality that perform great. I just think it doesn't work out that way in the real world nearly as often as you'd expect.

In my eyes they own the revolver industry and every pistol in the SR series falls in the ďbest bang for the buckĒ category. The SR1911 really shines.

That's kind of funny. I looked at a CZ with the synthetic stock, thought it was one of the worst I'd ever seen.
