CZ 455 .17 HMR Varmint Laminate Thumbhole 20″

CZ 455 .17 HMR Varmint Laminate Thumbhole 20″

680.00

We all wanted it and it’s finally here – Ceská Zbrojovka has produced a rimfire rifle that can change calibres from .22 LR to .22 WMR and the ever-popular .17 HMR, too.

This means that you can now shoot the tried and tested CZ action with hammer-forged barrel, but with the extra advantage that a silenced .22 LR rabbit gun can be changed into a flat-shooting .17 HMR rifle for fox control.

The CZ 455 is the new beast and I had the thumbhole-laminated sporter in .17 HMR for testing. Not only can the barrel be removed but the trigger is now a single stage unit with a lighter overall trigger pull. The barrel length on this model is 20in, although a 16in-version is also available, making it a very handy short vermin gun, even with a sound moderator fitted.

Barrel, action and finish
This is where the biggest change has been made with regard to design. Outwardly, the trim mini Mauser-esque action is still undeniably well engineered and proportioned for rimfire cartridge use, with that well-deserved reputation for accuracy and reliability.

But under the skin of the steel action lies a totally different barrel attachment arrangement that allows the barrel to be exchanged for a differing calibre while still retaining the accuracy.

CZ customers have been asking for a barrel- change facility and this should now rival the Sako Quad in this respect.
