CZ-USA recently announced its first chassis rifle, the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis, chambered in .22 LR. The platform serves both precision rimfire competitors and long-range varmint shooters and plinkers.

CZ 457 Varmint Precision Chassis

CZ built the precision rimfire around an aluminum chassis. The entire package weighs in at seven pounds. The rifle comes in two different barrel lengths, with a 16.5-inch and 24-inch variant available. Meanwhile, an adjustable Luth-AR stock configures to individual shooter fit. Likewise, the trigger adjusts for weight, creep and overtravel, easily fine-tuned by each shooter.

The new 457 utilizes a five-round, detachable magazine. The barrel is factory threaded 1/2×28 for a suppressor. A two-position, push-to-fire safety system provides intuitive protection, according to CZ-USA.

The rifle’s bolt rotates just 60 degrees, allowing room between the bolt handle and scope for easy cycling. That generous space also allows mounting riflescopes with larger ocular bell diameters and lower ring heights.

The forend provides ample accessorizing capability with QD sling and M-LOK slots. CZ-USA’s 11mm dovetail comes milled into the receiver for mounting of optics and rails.

Above all, the rifle package comes well-suited for competition, hunting, practice or a fun day on the range. The rimfire rifle retails for $999.
