Does anyone have experience with this rifle? I own a 452 in 22 wmr, one of its predecessors, and it's a fine rimfire. I'm just curious about the "improvements" made on the newer model.
Better check again: https://www.cz-parts.com/cz-452-453-455-steel-magazine-22-lr-10rndThanks for the replies. My only hesitancy is the apparent total lack of magazines for the "new" 457 model. Even the CZ-USA website doesn't offer them. I asked a seller on Gunbroker if the 455 22wmr mags would work with the 457 and he said, "no." I simply won't buy a firearm that only has a single mag and no more available.
Just curious, what part of this was contradictory?Well, I've gotten enough contradictory info on the 22wmr magazines that I've decided against the 457 altogether, even though I really like my 452 but I still have nightmares over the hassles in getting a 2nd magazine for that rifle, years ago. I can't understand my CZ doesn't make their mags easily and broadly available.
The part where I questioned Gunbroker vendors who responded with, "The 455 won't fit in the 457."
I finally got one, a 457 American. I put 175 rounds of cheap Blazer Ammo through it a few days ago. It’s too early to judge how accurate it is. I’ll put another couple hundred rounds of cheap stuff through it, adjust the trigger and change the trigger spring then put some good Ammo through it and see what I’ve got.No experience with a 457 yet, but I plan to buy one. I have a couple 452’s and a 455 and like them. I’ll probably end up with a 457 MTR for the match chamber. I wish the VPT came with the match chamber.
