The classic American-style rimfire rifle, this gorgeous 457 has a 20” barrel with no sights and is meant to be topped with a scope. Its American style beech stock has a high, flat comb and a classic checkering pattern. Like all of CZ 457s, it has an 11mm dovetail milled into the top of its receiver for attaching scope ringmounts.
Included in this package:
• 22 LR CZ 457 American Beech 20"
• Minox ZL3 Plex 4-12x40 Scope
• 3/8 1" Medium rings
If we were to pick one thing that CZs previous rimfire platforms were lacking, it was an American-style push-to-fire safety — something Hunter’s Education instructors and 4-H shooting coaches have begged CZ to incorporate for years. Though that was the most obvious change, CZ also took the opportunity to tweak a load of small things at the same time. In addition to the receiver-mounted, push-to-fire safety, CZ chopped almost an inch of length from the action and slab-sided it to reduce its footprint and weight.
The stamped bottom metal of the 455 is gone, swapped for a classy two-piece interlocking system. To make scope fitment easier, we ditched the 90° bolt rotation in favor of 60°, allowing for larger ocular bell diameters with lower ring heights. To top it all off, the 457 now features a trigger adjustable for weight, creep and over-travel.
With the exact same swappable barrel system as the 455 and the same reliable polymer magazine system, the 457 is without a doubt the best rimfire platform we've ever fielded.
