To remove the rear sight on my CZ 452, don't you just push down on the base and pull back. (to the bolt end of the receiver?) It only moves so far and stops.

Try lifting the sight blade and pushing down and back at the base where it looks like a pin goes through( its not really a pin) and it will slide back and out.

Like Dwight says, but you actually start the push FORWARD towards the front sight, it will then rise up ( since you are pushing down on the front end, let it loose a little as you see it move forward ), and it will pop up, then back out towards the trigger end of the rifle.....

Longplay....

Thanks guys. That was one tight son-of-a-gun to get out of there.

  • Is this the same sight you fellas are talking about? I'm struggling with it too if it is. Apparently they had at least two different ones.

PS. Why are you removing it ? I removed two of mine to install the Williams peep sights.

I have a 3-9 Clearidge scope coming. I'd like to keep it as low as possible.

Actually the scope arrived yesterday. A Fine Cross Hair reticle. I could see right away the FCH was not going too work well in early morning dimly lit squirrel woods. So I called and they were very understanding. It's in UPS transit being exchanged for a Duplex.

Red - I mounted my Leupold VX II 3 X 9 X 33 rimfire EFR AO on my CZ 452 Lux without having to remove the rear sight. I used B-Square 1" offset rings which cost $ 12 for both. Thanks to our own Ron V. for the suggestion on getting things setup. The scope is mounted forward so I have plenty of eye relief for 3 position shooting. Notice the sight clearence and that the windage adjustment dial doesn't cover the ejection port..

thanks for that info. Waiting on the scope to arrive. I have a Leo 2-7 on it now, I just assumed the larger bell would have clearance problems.

will do. It's a gnarly beechwood stocked Training Rifle. In the waiting period for the yodave spring set and the scope. In the mean time bolt has been lapped, bedding completed, touched up the safety as it was pretty stiff...it's considerably easier to operate now. I've only fired the CCI "Quiet22" through it so far. Plinking in the back yard you know. As soon as the rest of the stuff is installed I'll take it out for a regular range trip with various ammo.

Great looking setup.

How did you touch up the safety?

Pulled it out and removed a little metal where it begins to radius against the rear of the bolt (mainspring) area. (Watch operation as you flip it on and off to see where it begins to make contact) I simply lessened the angle with some 120 grit paper on a pneumatic sander and re-polished it. Took two attempts so as not to remove too much at once. The sharp radius acts as a detent to keep you from accidentally flicking it off in the field, so easy does it.

On the CZ Trainer I had, I had to remove the sight when I had the Weaver CT-6 on it, but when I gave it to my grandson, I put a different longer scope on it and was able to put the sight back in the base. It cleared that scope, but I don't recall right now just exactly what scope I gave him... think it may have been a Bushnell 4-12X with AO.

Clearidge 3-9. Never owned this brand before. The duplex is certainly going to be better for hunting than the FCH. IMO it's a bit thicker than need be...but it's do-able. It's a clear bright scope and seems to be well made. Would have landed right on that rear sight.

Dave, Just may have to check out a set of those B Square mounts. I want to put my Mueller 8-32x44 on my TH Varmint 22lr. It is on my TH Varmint 17 HMR now but having trouble with not enough eye relief.

looking back I sorta wish I would have spent the extra $100+ for the Leupold EFR. I discovered today that while the Clearidge is clear, bright, seems to hold zero, etc., it is not repeatable as I had hoped it would be.

Red, try this when cranking the adjustments..After making the change tap the turret lightly with a small pocket screwdriver handle. It always helps on the less expensive scopes to always make the final movement in the same direction.. For example. If you need to move 2 clicks up, first go down 2 and then 4 up..This will help eliminate some of the slop in the (gears?) I had to do this on all of my Simmons years ago when shooting silhouette that required a whole bunch of adjustments during each match...Dave

It's been a fine scope field wise so far. No complaints there and you get what you pay for for pretty much. If I weren't trying to shoot two different ammo types out of it without re-sighting it would not be an issue.

I have the reverse problem. I would like to put the rear sight back in as I found there was no need for it to be removed.
However, my efforts to date to put it back in just won't do. It seems as though a portion of the sight toward the muzzle
end has pushed forward making it difficult to reinsert.
I would appreciate any tips

Hit it with a bigger hammer. :P Just kidding to be sure. I will be looking for any replys to this. As soon as I get home from this trip I plan on replacing my Williams peeps to the original sights on my 22lr fullstock. Never thought of having a problem. :o Keep us updated.

I have a 452 TH Varmint with a Weaver 4-16x40 on it. With Burris Signature Zee medium rings and J&P adapters, I clear the barrel by about 1/16-1/8".

For anything with the tangent rear sights, I strongly suggest a high mount like the Burris Signature rimfire mounts. This will allow the scope to be mounted as far back as possible and with the Signature insert (get a pack of the extras for about $17.00) the scope can be where it is supposed to be. I suggest the inserts since I have found that both Weaver and Leupold scopes run out of verticle on my UL and Varmint. Either that or get a +20 or +25 adapter rail.

Thanks guys! I did have to push down hard on the front to get mine off. I am waiting on delivery of a Williams FP for my UL. I like the J&P ghost ring but want a little more precision. I did not want to remove the rear, but I am sure the ghost ring will interfere with the Williams.

Funny, my rear sight has markings up to 300. Is there more than one version of this sight?
