CZ-USA 455 American Bolt Action .17 HMR Rimfire Rifle
It's the CZ 455 you know and love, with interchangeable barrel system, adjustable trigger, and renowned accuracy…but now, for the first time ever, it features a stainless steel barrel. The 455 American Stainless is meant to be a hardy, long-lasting rifle that can be passed down through the generations.
Though it may be stainless, it's still cold hammer-forged like all CZ barrels. Starting as cylindrical billets, the barrels sit outside in stacks getting rained on, snowed on and baking in the sun. For as long as two years, the forces of nature act on the metal, relieving the stress created when they were made. Once the aging is done, the barrels head into the factory where they are rifle-drilled and bored, then cold-hammer forged. Any burrs or irregularities that might catch the bullet jacket have already been polished away by the time the barrel is fit to the rifle. The proof speaks for itself.
