NEW! The CZ 457 Synthetic
The latest arrival from CZ is the NEW CZ 457 Synthetic.
It was only at the end of March that we brought you news of the new CZ 457 LRP and now there’s more good news from one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-class firearms.
The CZ 457 Synthetic is available in a number of calibres, .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR. The cold hammer forged threaded barrelgth, (½x20 UNF), has a lengh of 16″ for the .22 LR model and 20″ for the .22 WMR and the .17 HMR.
CZ tell us that the rifle is, “Built for the harshest of weather conditions, the 457 Synthetic combines an extremely durable nitride finish with a hardy black polymer stock. Like all 457s, the Synthetic utilises our easily-swappable barrel system, enabling conversion between barrel lengths, profiles and chamberings in minutes.”
“The 457 Synthetic’s ergonomically superior stock shape is borrowed from the popular 557 centerfire rifle, allowing it to accommodate both right-handed and left-handed shooters. A soft rubber butt pad increases comfort and a soft-touch finish secures it firmly in the hand. Another perk of this stock is a significant weight reduction, allowing the rifle to clock in at only 2.4 kg!”
“Equipped with a varmint barrel threaded 1/2×20 UNF, the Synthetic can be had in .22 LR, .17 HMR or .22 WMR with a 20” barrel, as well as a shorter, stiffer 16” version in .22 LR only. Like all of our rimfire rifles, this 457 has a 11 mm dovetail milled into the top of the receiver, facilitating easy mounting of optics.”
