Varmint, Suppressor-Ready Expansions to CZ 457 22LR Rifle Line

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer series, which has three different barrel lengths, all use a Manners stock finished in a three-color camouflage pattern with a base of carbon fiber peeking through the background. The stock itself is built with multiple layers of carbon fiber and fiberglass, hand-laid in high-temperature epoxy resins. (Photos: CZ)

Boasting what the company bills as the same look and feel of full-sized centerfire rifles, there are a host of new CZ 457 rimfires on the market.

The most expansive new offering in the line is in the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer which uses a special Manners carbon-fiber composite stock and a tapered varmint-profile heavy barrel with a 1-in-16 twist rate.

The series– designed for rimfire competition or as a trainer complement to full-sized rifles– includes suppressor-ready variants with 24.875-inch and 16.5-inch barrels as well as a non-threaded version with a 20.5-inch barrel. All three run in the 7-pound range.

Suppressor-ready models of the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer sport 1/2x28TPI threading at barrel’s end. Shipped sans sights, they have an integral 11mm dovetail 

The way the newer 457s differ from CZ’s legacy 455 series rimfire rifles is that the new guns have a two-piece interlocking bottom system rather than the previous stamped bottom metal and offer a 60-degree bolt rotation, which allows better optic clearance, than a 90-degree bolt throw. Further, the 457s have a fully-adjustable trigger.

In a smart move, CZ retained the same 5-round polymer mag as the 455s, as well as the popular ability to easily swap out barrels without tapping in the help of a gunsmith.

MSRP of the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer, across all barrel lengths, is $1,144, a price that will likely be a bit less at retailers.

CZ 457 Pro Varmint

Another version of the rifle, the 457 Pro Varmint, ditches the Manners stock in favor of a simpler black-painted laminate stock. It comes standard with a 16.5-inch suppressor-ready barrel. With a weight of 7.3-pounds, it has the same standard features of the 457 line to include an adjustable trigger, 5-round detachable magazine, and two-position safety.

MSRP on the CZ 457 Pro Varmint is a more affordable $588.
