The new CZ 457 .22LR LRP (Long Range Precision) Rifle.

With the exciting announcement from the Sportsman Gun Centre that as of 1st April 2020, they will take over as sole UK importer and distributor of CZ there is some very exciting news from the manufacturer themselves about a brand new rifle.

The new CZ 457 LRP (Long Range Precision), chambered in .22LR has been specifically designed to shoot accurately at long distance.

Here is what CZ say about the new rifle.

“Built for shooters who want to exploit the extraordinary accuracy potential of the CZ 457 to its fullest, the LRP is tuned to enable hits on target at extreme distances – assuming the shooter does their part!

Equipped with a 20” fluted varmint barrel, the LRP borrows the MATCH chamber that was originally exclusive to the 457 MTR. This supremely-accurate barrel has a threaded muzzle (1/2×20 UNF) and is topped off with a muzzle brake.”

“The LRP’s target-style stock bears a soft-touch finish and has a prominent pistol grip, extended forend, textured grip surfaces and a prominent rear hook designed to cradle the shooter’s support hand. For those desiring to add a rear monopod, a rail is also present at the toe.

Adjustability abounds, with length of pull able to be tuned with the three included spacers (351-382 mm), while the height of the comb and the buttpad are also user-configurable.

Also included in the LRP package is a 25 MOA Weaver-style rail (with built-in inclination that enables sighting in at longer distances), an oversized bolt knob, 5-round magazine and a premium 4M rifle case.”
