CZ 457 - the new paragon of a modern rimfire rifle
When it comes to rimfire rifles, Ceskázbrojovka a.s. Traditionally is one of the world leaders in the manufacture of these firearms. Following in the footsteps of the famous CZ452 series and its successor, the CZ455, a new generation of rimfire CZ bolt-action rifles raises the bar for the CZ457 family genre. The new CZ457 family features a highly developed modular design. Compared to existing models and competing products, all important parameters have been significantly improved, regardless of user safety, accuracy or service life.
To a greater or lesser extent, the concept behind many new CZ rimfire rifles goes back to the original reason this gun was made in the first place and why they were so popular in the industry. long time. Rimfire Rifles are often sought after by shotgun owners, especially for training, fun, or teaching the younger generation the basics of shooting and hunting. In this respect, the design of the new CZ 457 family is remarkable. Integrating part of the design and several components with the successful CZ 557 series of rifles is a huge step forward, especially in terms of the fully adjustable trigger mechanism with outstanding characteristics. It's also important to note that this series has retained the success of the CZ 455s and barrels, meaning owners of these guns have the option of easy and affordable generation modification.
The advantages of the CZ 457 can be divided into three main areas:
The safety is released by moving the lever forward, exposing a red dot on the side of the receiver that indicates that the rifle is ready to fire. A new element in CZ rimfire rifles is the striker status indicator, which visually and by touch shows the status of the striker mechanism: when the striker is cocked, a small red indicator protrudes from the rear of the bolt.
In general, CZ rimfire rifles are highly accurate, however, the truth is that the design legacy of the CZ 452 ZKM limited the options to modify the trigger mechanism parameters. As a result, the company has introduced a new trigger mechanism for the CZ 457 family. In comparison with previous models, the weight of CZ 457 rimfire rifle strikers has been reduced by more than 60%, resulting also in a faster strike and at the same time less shock when fired. Where stocks are concerned, there has been a great improvement in all long guns from CZ, which has also been reflected in the new rimfire rifles.
Improved user properties
In the past few years, CZ has considerably advanced its technologies, such as procedures for the surface treatment of metal parts. The company`s new products, including the new CZ 457 series, are thus treated with one the most durable anti-corrosion surface treatments on the market.
As has already been mentioned, the important benefits of the previous CZ rimfire rifle generation have been retained: the modular system allowing an easy replacement of barrels and changing of calibres, and compatibility of the barrels and magazines with the CZ 455 series.
