CZ-USA CZ 457 Varmint .17 HMR Bolt Action Rifle
Drawing from a long lineage of Czech-made precision rifles, the CZ 457 Varmint combines a fine swappable barrel system, adjustable trigger, and CZ's legendary cold hammer-forged barrel to create CZ's finest Rimfire Rifle.
Not only does the 0.866" heavy barrel make for good harmonics, it also allows the Varmint to perform well with a wide variety of rimfire loads, translating into an accurate platform for shooting targets or taking game. The Turkish walnut stock has an American-style comb for use with a scope and a wide, flat forend that rides a sandbag well. Laser-cut stippling gives grip fore and aft.
If we were to pick one thing that CZ's 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 them to incorporate for years. The new 457 Varmint is equipped with the push-to-fire safety. Plus, 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, they 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 2-piece interlocking system. To make scope fitment easier, CZ 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 CZ has ever fielded.
