Brno Mod. 2 Info Search

Hi Guys,

I just purchased a '67 Model 2 to replace my 10/22 stolen last month.

I'm pleased to own an older, well made rifle and keen to learn a bit more about it. I've fired 10 rounds of CCI subs and it's functioning well. Any better ammo recommendations to try?

I also stripped the bolt and it could do with a new spring and ejector claws. Does anyone specialise in these parts?

Also, there isn't any checkering on my stock. Any advice on that?

Great to be here in the group. Thanks for any help, info and advice.

Cheers

Greg

The Norinco parts do fit. I have two model 2 rifles from the same era. After 67 quality went down for a while because of a large fire at the factory. I use CCI subs in both and they shoot very well. I modify Ruger rings to fit the dovetailed receiver and they look fantastic.

Also after 1967 the original "BRNO" company ceased to exist and CZ took over the manufacture of 22rfs. Maybe the patents also expired, not sure. There was a decline in quality for a long period after 67. The early history of the 2 companies is quite complex and was also hidden behind the communist wall of the time. Rifle branding was also nationalised and a lot of firearms got branded BRNO.

I sourced a few parts for my #1, (main spring, striker, firing pin, trigger, trigger guard, fore sight protector, action screws) last year from an Ebay seller in Slovakia. The parts as sold were all unused. Where he got them from who knows but he has large numbers of some of them. He also had some #2 parts.

The only part I need that he couldn't supply was a replacement butt plate. He had them for the #2 though.

A lot of it covers modern CZ stuff so you need to dig really deep for the BRNO stuff.
Have a look at Sticky: Dancz's CZ/Brno Collection. Even the yanks are agog of the size of it. He is rumored to be an Auckland collector.

This is the BRNO parts Ebay seller -https://www.ebay.com/itm/Brno-Mod-2-Mod-4-Mod-5-and-CZ452-spare-parts-set-/23348...

I bought all my bits pre the current enforcement of the import permit. No hassle landing them then and the seller is top notch. Became aware of him on the American Rimfire Central Forum where he is highly regarded.

Bah, cannot edit my posts grrr.
He is highly regarded by the Yanks and is recognised worldwide as a BRNO parts source. IIRC his name is Jozef Pales.

Don't checker it , try to keep it as original as possible. Same goes for threading it for a silencer  , get one of the slip on ones , they work without altering the rifle .

Thanks for the info and advice Guys.

6.5x55jbai - I just realised from your link photo that the ejector claws are different - I thought one of mine was worn. Does it matter which side of the bolt they are on?

A small pile of rust fell out of the bolt when I pulled it down. The firing pin spring is rusted in and I resisted the temptation to work it out until I have a replacement - in case it breaks. It's been loaded up with G96 so I'll try again this weekend. Rust was metal so I will try to get a replacement.

I put another 30 rounds through and it's working well. Will build a rest to sight it in, then test on the bunnies!

Yep the claw on the left, looking down on the action, will have a more rounded tip, whilst the one on the right will be sharp and right angular. The one on the left holds the case against the rhs one. When the bolt is pulled back and the case contacts the raised ejector surface the case is able to roll out of the lhs claw and be flicked clear. Both of them may eventually wear but that would take many thousands of rounds.
You can check them, with the bolt removed, by clipping a fired case into the claws.
Need to keep them clean plus remove any gunk that builds up in the slots in the barrel at 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock that they engage into when bolt is closed.
