Safety first

Today, the prevailing way of operating long firearms is the so-called positive safety which
also features on the CZ 457 guns in the form of a lever on the
right-hand side of the receiver. 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.

An additional benefit for safer handling is the separate bolt extractor control on
the left side of the receiver. It is therefore not necessary to depress
the trigger at all when stripping the gun for basic maintenance.

Last but not least, once again in keeping with the current preferences of most shooters, the CZ 457 guns allow the bolt be opened and extracted with the safety on.

Improved accuracy

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. CZ has already managed to solve this
problem in several variants of the CZ 455 family. As a result, the
company has introduced a new trigger mechanism for the
CZ 457 family. It allows the user to adjust the trigger pull weight
within a very favourable range of 8 to 15 N, the trigger travel may be
adjusted between 0.5-7 mm. Basically, the shooter has the option to use
the gun for ordinary training as well as a target special in its
category.

One element which is often overlooked but which plays an
important role in accuracy is the weight of the striker. 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.
For the CZ 457 series, Česká zbrojovka has developed a new type of bedding which allows constant tightening of the screws in the barrelled action within the stock. Improvements have also been made with ergonomics, this new series therefore has an extremely comfortable and reliable grip.

In
the CZ 457 MTR in .22 LR cal. target model, a so-called ‘Match’ chamber
has been used with dimensions on the tightest limit of allowable
parameters. In combination with the other upgrades, this rifle
guarantees 15 mm groups at a distance of 50 m!

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.

In
addition, users will undoubtedly appreciate the improved trigger
travel, which has been achieved by redesigning the receiver and the
bolt. Another advantage is the notably reduced turning angle of the bolt handle (30°
less than previous CZ models). Thanks to this, the gun enables
comfortable handling even with a riflescope as well as the ability to
fit scopes with large ocular bells with lower ring heights.

While focusing on this generational upgrade, CZ has also taken the opportunity to incorporate upgraded smaller parts, such as the trigger guard, magazine frame, rear part of the bolt, new Weaver rail interface, etc.

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.

Generational upgrade

The
CZ 457 rimfire rifles in .22 LR., .22 WMR and .17 HMR will gradually
replace the CZ 455 series in the company portfolio. In addition to the
models being replaced, the advantages of the new design will also be
applied to completely new models with unique parameters, which CZ has
not offered before. The following pages offer the basic overview of the
first wave of new models.

We believe that after you get acquainted
with the new CZ 457 family, you will agree that these guns constitute
the new paragon of a modern rimfire rifle in its price range, and that
they have no equal rival on the current global market.

More models will be added as they become available throughout 2019.
