The CZ 455 Stainless Thumbhole Varmint with heavy barrel is the model that is particularly interesting for sport shooters and hunters. A well-proven barrelled action of the CZ 455 is complemented with thick-walled barrel in order to secure accuracy of fire for intermediate to long distances.
This model differs from the CZ 455 VARMINT rimfire rifle with an ergonomic laminated thumbhole stock. It does not have any sights but the stock shape and the comb height make this rifle ideal for using with optical sights. The receiver has a dovetail for easy attachment of scope rings.
This new model CZ 455 rimfire rifle is based on classical design, but incorporates a lot of improvements affecting most of the main parts of this rifle. First of all CZ answered the wishes of many of their customers for having an action that enables barrels to be interchanged. New developments and manufacturing processes have allowed shortening of barrel while retaining traditionally high accuracy. A new method of connecting the barrelled-action with the stock means only two screws are needed for improved securing, simpler tightening and superior appearance. The use of cold hammer forged barrels has been retained as well as the receiver being made from a single billet of high quality steel.
