CZ-USA Introduces Left-Handed 457 Rimfire Rifles

CZ 457 American LH

CZ-USA has introduced two lefthanded 457 rifles—the Varmint in .22 LR and American in .22 LR or .22 WMR—tailored for lefthanded shooters.

These new models inherit the advanced features of the CZ 457 series of bolt-action rifles, but with lefthanded comfort and ease of use. The bolt, push-to-fire safety, and a separate bolt extractor control mirror right-hand rifle models. The striker status indicator located at the rear of the bolt provides a quick visual check while hunting or competition shooting, while a shortened 60-degree bolt throw allows rapid and convenient reloading by increasing clearance between the bolt and mounted optics.

CZ457 American and Varmint

CZ 457 rifles feature an adjustable trigger mechanism with a low trigger-pull weight, creep, and customizable travel. The Varmint and American both feature Turkish walnut stocks with checkering on the grip and fore-end. With the use of a durable anti-corrosion finish for moisture protection, the external metal parts hold up well in the field and make maintenance a breeze.

Barrels are cold hammer-forged, producing constancy from breach to muzzle, and uses the industry-standard 1:16-inch twist with a threaded muzzle. The Varmint model has a shorter barrel with a heavier profile than the American’s light profile and longer barrel. The improved modular system of the CZ 457 allows for the use of barrels in various cartridges from the previous CZ 455 series. The reliable 5-shot detachable polymer magazines used in this current series are also compatible with past generations of CZ rimfire rifles.
