For what? .22LR? Or the guns? Savage MKII will run around $250 and CZ 457 is around $500. Check out the MSRP then take 10% off for street value.

What model. The CZ has a milled receiver vs a stamped on and if you get a wood stock the fit and finish is usually really nice.

I've got a Savage, and like it enough. I put it in a Boyd's stock with Vortex glass. Mass produced quality, but hey - it was $230 from budsgunshop.com so I'm not complaining. Threads were a little rough, but other than that it is solid.

No wrong choice between the Savage, CZ, and Tikka 22LR bolt-action rifles in my opinion. If this were the 2019 market, and they were all in the sub $500 range, then it comes down to personal preferences as all are very accurate for their price range. I've had a Ruger American 22LR bolt-action rifle in the past, and maybe I didn't give the barrel long enough time to settle, but out of the box, it was less accurate than the above platforms. Its chief strength was the mag system, which is superior to all the above.

I'm casually shopping for a CZ 457 these days, but mostly waiting for prices to recede. I have over half a dozen CZ rimfire rifles (mostly 452 and 455 models), so don't have a pressing need but clearly have an affinity to them. All of my CZ rifles have been fabulously accurate, with sub 0.5 inch 5-shot groups at 50 yards with shooter grade 22LR being the norm. Within their pre panic price range of $300-450, they are one of the best looking traditional rifle options. Now prices are $100-150 higher if you can find them, even for their beechwood stocked rifles. A subset of them have threaded barrels.

The photo below shows several discontinued CZ models, but gives a sense of the stock configurations. From top to bottom, CZ 513 (beechwood), CZ 452 American (walnut), CZ 452 Super Match (beechwood - same overall shape as the CZ Trainer and CZ Lux). Not pictured is the CZ Varmint that has the most threaded barrel options, and typically with a heavier barrel profile.



The Savage Mark series just flat out shoots (and have threaded barrels). One of my clubs gets the version with aperture sights for the youth team. I tested one off a bench recently, having never used a rifle with front and rear aperture sights, and was happy with the 25 yards groups. I don't like the mag system on this rifle. Although a single stack like the CZ, the Savage mags can be less smooth to load.




But my favorite, if only choosing one, and if you can get for $450 or less, is the Tikka T1X with 16- or 20-inch threaded barrels. It has a cheapass plastic thread protector on it, and the stock is marginally nicer than the Savage synthetic stock (but not in the league of the CZ stocks, especially the walnut ones). However the bolt is very smooth, the trigger is excellent, and the accuracy outstanding. 50-yard 5-shot groups half the size of a dime are not uncommon with CCI Standard Velocity.

A CZ 452 with a walnut mannlicher stock looks really good. Not threaded but...

I think the Americans at Baltimore Pawn were right around $495. I thought fair compared to online.
