A new paragon of a modern rimfire rifle.

For over 70 years, CZ has been the world leader in the development and manufacture of long guns using rimfire cartridges. Each and every one of their model series was the best on the market at the time, however, none brought such an enormous leap in the improvements of all the key user parameters as the CZ 457 family has. 

The CZ 457 series thus offers exceptional user comfort due to the easy, fast and reliable operation even with the riflescope attached. To ensure maximum safety, there is a positive safety on the right side of the receiver, a striker status indicator and a separate bolt extractor control. The accuracy has considerably improved with the use of a new adjustable trigger mechanism with a low trigger pull weight and excellent travel, a noticeably lighter striker and a new type of bedding. A literally revolutionary innovation is the extremely durable anti-corrosion surface finish of the metal parts that currently has no equal rival on the market.   

The CZ 457 series has retained all the important benefits of the previous CZ rimfire rifle generation: the modular system allowing an easy replacement of barrels and change of calibres as well as the extremely reliable polymer magazines.   

Built for the harshest of weather conditions, the 457 Synthetic combines an extremely durable nitride finish with a hardy black polymer stock. Like all 457s, the Synthetic utilizes our easily-swappable barrel system, enabling conversion between barrel lengths, profiles and chamberings in minutes.

The 457 Synthetic’s ergonomically superior stock shape is borrowed from the popular 557 centerfire rifle, allowing it to accommodate both right-handed and left-handed shooters. A soft rubber butt pad increases comfort and a soft-touch finish secures it firmly in the hand. Another perk of this stock is a significant weight reduction, allowing the rifle to clock in at only 2.4 kg!

Equipped with a varmint barrel threaded 1/2x20 UNF, the Synthetic is in .22 LR, with a 20” barrel. Like all CZ rimfire rifles, this 457 has a 11mm dovetail milled into the top of the receiver, facilitating easy mounting of optics.
