Our Assessment: This a Brno Model ZKM-611 semi-automatic sporting rifle chambered in .22 WMR. The rifle was designed by Zbrojovka Brno (Brno Arms) but was made by Ceska Zbrojovka, who was allowed to use the Brno Arms trademark. The rifle is in Factory New condition with about 99+% of its metal finish remaining. The bore is bright with sharp rifling and no erosion. This is a very light rifle with a 20 ½” barrel, and comes with its original box and paperwork, still in its oiled plastic sleeves! This rifle has a beautiful fancy walnut stock, with a nice grain. This will make a great rifle for rabbits and varmints up to and including the size of coyotes, and the .22 WMR chambering will allow you to reach-out well past where you would normally shoot a .22 Long Rifle. We may never know why this rifle has lain in its packaging unused for almost a quarter century, but it could be yours to use or keep in this fantastic, Factory New condition.
