You may think of shotguns when hearing about CZ-USA, (I do sometimes) but in fact, the Kansas City, Kansas, based company makes some fine rifles, including some very interesting rimfires. The 457 line is a descendant of the old 452 and then the 455 CZ’s both of which are somewhat legendary in the 4-H/youth training world. The 457 comes from a long line of accurate .22 rifles that have been used for training and competition for years. The original 452 was first dubbed the “Military Training Rifle” and thousands of riflemen (and women) have learned to shoot on this gun. The 452 evolved into the Model 455 and for many years was the rifle of choice for many shooting programs in the .22 rifle world.
You guys and girls that do this don’t need me to tell you that competition shooting in the .22 world has skyrocketed. The new CZ-USA 457 LPR rifle will fill this niche.
