Rimfire rifles CZ 457 series

CZ 457 SERIES - A NEW GENERATION OF MODERN RIMFIRE RIFLES

The CZ 457 series offers exceptional user comfort due to its easy, fast and reliable operation, even with a mounted riflescope. For maximum safety, it comes with a push-to-fire safety on the right side of the receiver, striker status indicator and a separate bolt extractor control. Shooting accuracy is ensured with its adjustable trigger mechanism that features low trigger pull weight and excellent travel, combined with a noticeably lighter striker and a new type of bedding. Other benefits include an extremely durable anti-corrosion finish on metal parts, easy change of caliber by users and reliable polymer magazines that are compatible with the previous generation of CZ rimfire rifles.

Main features of the CZ 457 series

Push-To-Fire safety

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 attachment of the mechanism in the stock. It largely eliminates the effects of wood expansion under fluctuating temperatures, therefore remaining 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 most demanding, precise and expensive method of cold forging the barrel bore 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 excellent accuracy of 1 MOA, depending on the ammunition used.

Adam Oakes (CZ 457 ROYAL 16")
Have owned a cz 452 in hmr but 20 inch barrel, loved the gun but the barrel was too long for me, it was reliable and well made. Traded in for the 457 Royal in hmr and the difference is amazing, the gun is lighter, as reliable and more accurate due to these refinements. I highly recommend, the only niggle is lack of metal mags for the hmr series. Thanks adam

Good morning, I'm Giorgio Vicina Mazzaretto and I'm a Fiocchi Munizioni spa Testimonial for 22lr of Fiocchi Team, and I use my Cz 455 Mini Sniper for shooting at 100mt in Precision League for testing 22lr. This year I'd like growing up till 300mt. You Mini Sniper is very very performant and the stock so confortable so I can take a very quick line for shooting. Really incredible rifle

John Bennetch (CZ 457 VARMINT)
Purchased a CZ 457 Varmint in 17 HMR in Spring 2021. Am pleased with this rifle in every way. Fit, finish, and function is superb. Beautiful wood stock. In my opinion, incredible value for the $$. I was so impressed with it when I received it that I ordered the 22 WMR barrel kit for it as well. Voila! For a $180 expenditure, I now have a 22 mag as well. 17 HMR is a bit more accurate than the 22 mag, as expected. Thank you for your attention to detail.

Wonderful workmanship. Very well balanced. Beautiful wood stock. I can find no fault with it. Will purchase again. Have not fired it, waiting on a scope and rings.

Martin Clarke (CZ 457 AMERICAN)
My recently bought 17HMR American was bore sighted. I zeroed in at 25m initially, and finally got 5 shots in 6mm clean hole. Went out to 50m and managed 5 shots in 8.5mm with three holes touching. Could not be more impressed with accuracy, as I am sure this will improve after 150 to 200 shots. The ammo used was CCI Varmint 17 Gr. The safety mechanism and trigger adjustment add to the overall performance.

John Stott (CZ 457 SYNTHETIC 16")
Purchase based on reviews and comparison with other makes in 22lr. Simply put this is the best performing and best value rimfire there is on the market. It is used in pest control on arable land. Weather resistance was also a major factor. Accuracy is superb, used mainly with subsonic rounds and moderator. Handling is light, correct LOP and facility for bipod and sling are also advantages. Easy to strip and clean, trigger is excellent. Bolt action smooth.

Shaun Porter (CZ 457 SYNTHETIC)
The 457 Synthetic .22LR is a fantastic rifle! It is very accurate and easy to shoot well.The stock feels very good to touch / hold and ergonomically is perfect.No need to change the stock.It is 100% just right.The weight is also just right at 2.4 -2.5 kgs. I can carry the 457 in the field all day very easily. I feel no need for any extra accessories on the 457 Synthetic. Mechanically, the 457 Synthetic is 100% reliable with feeding/ extraction.The trigger and is very good as is the bolt.

Keith Parris (CZ 457 VARMINT LH)
Have used this BRNO rifle since 1982 and it is the most accurate rifle I have used to date , great accuracy at 100mtrs on rabbits and all ranges up to that distance , I would not shoot vermin above that distance anyway , I also use a centre fire .243 BRNO both bought together and the build quality and accuracy of both is astounding especially great value the centrefire is a beautiful deer hunting/stalking / culling rifle , I can honestly say that I have had no problems of any sort with either .
