A rimfire rifle with a classic European hunting rifle design. The varnished stock with cheekpiece is made of high-quality Turkish walnut and features laser-etched checkering. Traditional iron sights come as standard.
The silent, push-to-fire safety allows natural and intuitive control of the firearm with a design that engages when pulled back to the shooter and released when pushed away from the shooter, thereby contributing to safe and comfortable handling.
Separate bolt removal control
The bolt can be extracted from the receiver without the need to pull the trigger. A separate and easily accessible control allows for the convenient and complete removal of the bolt for cleaning.
Open and remove bolt even with safety engaged
The bolt can be opened and removed even with the safety engaged, so you can safely check the condition of the firearm or unload it without having to release the safety.
Striker status indicator
The indicator features reliable detection of a cocked firing mechanism and can be checked both visually and by touch, which is advantageous when shooting in dim light or at night.
Adjustable trigger mechanism
The adjustable trigger mechanism allows you to precisely tailor the firearm to your needs. Trigger pull is preset to 12 N at the factory, but it can be easily adjusted from 8–15 N. Trigger travel can also be adjusted from 0.5–5 mm.
Lighter striker for increased speed and reduced vibration during firing
Striker weight has been reduced by 38% compared to the previous model, thereby preventing even the smallest vibration that could affect shooting accuracy. The striker is also modified for resistance to dry training.
New type of bedding for constant tightening of screws in stock
The bedding significantly contributes to long-term shooting accuracy and stability of the mechanism’s attachment in the stock. It largely eliminates expansion of the wood during temperature fluctuations, therefore ensuring the rifle remains correctly sighted-in for longer periods of time and allowing you to shoot extremely accurately.
60° angle of bolt handle
Bolt rotation has been shortened to a 60° angle, which allows for convenient, smooth and quick reloading of the firearm, especially when optical sights are mounted.
New ergonomic stocks
The CZ 457 rimfire rifle series offers a wide range of stocks. The various options, shapes and materials have a strong emphasis on ergonomics, comfort and convenience of the shooter. You are sure to find one that fits you best.
Easy barrel replacement for quickly changing calibers
The improved modular system of the CZ 457 allows for the use of barrels in various calibers from the previous CZ 455 series, as well as barrel replacement with the use of CZ mini-sets. You can completely customize the firearm to your needs.
Cold hammer forged barrel
The demanding, precise and expensive method of cold forging the barrel directs the flow of fibers, which positively affects the barrel's accuracy and service life.
MATCH chamber on selected models
Selected 22 LR caliber models, such as the CZ 457 MTR, have a MATCH chamber at the very edge of the CIP tolerance. Precision manufacturing and low tolerances provide an impressive accuracy of 1 MOA, depending on the ammunition used.
