Posted @withrepost • Pretty sure this needs to be my open gun next year. @czusafirearms Smaller, lighter and sleeker -- here's a first look at the new CZ 457 rimfire platform.
The biggest change is the switch to a push-to-fire safety system, which means the safety is no longer 'backwards' to many in the American market.
But that's not all -- other upgrades are as follows: The action has been shortened and slab-sided to reduce bulk and weight, reduced bolt rotation means increased clearance for large scopes, the trigger is adjustable for creep, poundage and overtravel, the bottom metal is now sculpted and sleek, metalwork is finished in nitride to give it the look of a quality blue with the corrosion resistance of stainless, and the interchangeable barrel system and smooth-running magazine system of the 455 is retained unchanged. Last but definitely not least, the firing pin weight has been significantly reduced, resulting in less disruption at the shot and enabling a tad more accuracy.
Shown here as the new 457 Varmint Precision Trainer, it wears a carbon fiber composite stock from the fine folks at @mannersstocks, a 24" heavy threaded barrel and the CZ Rimfire suppressor. #czrimfire #czrifles #cz457 #22lr #czsuppressors #suppressors #suppressedrimfire #rimfire #rimfirerifles #riflepics #gunstagram #guns #gunsdaily #rifles #pro2a
