One of the hottest trends in the industry continues to be the growing popularity of precision shooting. Long-range shooting competitions continue to gain momentum, giving more folks a reason to invest in a .22-caliber trainer. And right on time, CZ-USA launches the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer/SR.

CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer / SR

Delivering the look and feel a full-sized tactical rifle, the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer/SR comes in .22 LR. A special Manners carbon fiber composite stock provides a solid platform. It features a three-color camouflage finish with a base of carbon fiber peeking through the background. The stock utilizes multiple layers of carbon fiber and fiberglass for strength and durability, according to CZ-USA.

The Varmint Precision Trainer/SR features a 24-inch, tapered Varmint barrel for precision shooting. However, CZ offers other barrel lengths as well. The “SR” designates Suppressor-Ready, with the rifle sporting 1/2×28 threading.

The rifle also features a push-to-fire safety. Additionally, the action got trimmed back nearly one inch for comfort. Meanwhile, the CZ slab-sided the action to reduce the footprint and weight.

The rifle features a 60-degree bolt throw, providing more room between bolt handle and scope for easy cycling. The change also allows larger ocular bell diameters and lower ring heights. Inside, the trigger adjusts for weight, creep and overtravel. A detachable magazine system and hardy nitride finish round out the features.

Another version of the rifle, the 457 Pro Varmint Suppressor-Ready, is a bit nimbler thanks to a 16.5-inch barrel. The 457 Pro Varmint is outfitted with a black-painted laminate stock which incorporates features found on much more expensive stocks, without pushing the overall price of the rifle through the roof, according to CZ-USA. The short barrel gives plenty of time for the cartridge to get a full burn, while also increasing the rigidity of the barrel.
