From my limited experience with the .17 Rem although they offer high velocity and almost zero recoil, there are a bunch of negatives. Among the negatives is poor bullet selection, their accuracy is affected greatly by wind and fouling especially at ranges over a couple hundred yards. The rifles I've been around foul in little as 20 rounds and cleaning is a b**ch. I'd imagine they are tough on barrels, but I haven't seen any that was used enough to wear one out. If you don't reload ammo prices are up there rivaling some of the magnum rounds.
Just my 2 cents on why I wouldn't want one.
The CZ's are neat rifles that have a reputation for accuracy and I love that mini-Mauser action.
