    I'd go with the Varmint, longer, heavy barrel and I feel "vanity" issues of guns are more about marketing than substance, the Canadian has a threaded barrel but the chance of Canada going moderator friendly is very tiny, either way, buy gun, shoot always

    I have CZ455 Varmint in .22 with a Redfield 6 to 18 scope on it.
    Its a good combo and very accurate with all the ammo I have tried in it.

    If it's a range toy, go Varmint. While a 22 doesn't heat up the barrel like a 308 would, you're better off with a bull barrel anyway.

    Everything I've read about he Canadian is that it's a standard 457 with a poorly done, bleeding, fading finish on the stock.

    If you don't plan on changing the stock in the future and you intend on it being a bench or prone shooter, spring for the MTR model. Otherwise, opt for the Varmint to save a bit of coin. And if you do decide to change the stock later, KRG is a good bet.

    Contrary to popular opinion (lore), on a .22 little advantage is gained with a heavy barrel. The barrel on the Canadian is not exactly a "pencil" barrel either. I owned a Trainer and a Canadian (.17 HMR); my .22 range toy is a Brno #2 with a lighter barrel. From a bench rest, they all go in one ragged hole, just like the trainer did; but the #2 is a lot easier to shoot free-hand because it is lighter than either of the other rifles.

    Bottom line; buy what you want.

    I'd still go with the longer barrel for 200 meters, I like Boyd's stocks, I have a thumb-hole varmint on my Savage A22, I'll likely get an A T One or thumb-hole A T One for my MK II
