455 American synthetic stocks



Log in to see fewer ads
How are the synthetic socks on the 455 American? I'm eyeballing the 455 American in stainless/synthetic, but I've read some negative comments about the quality of the synthetic stocks - mainly that they are on the flimsy side, have significant mold lines, and sound hollow. Is the stainless barrel/action available in a wood American stock?

The stock on my 455 American SS in 17hmr shows no parting lines on the stock,The fore end seems stiff,the butt stock does sound hollow if you tap on it.Im,sure a little injectable foam(Right-Stuff) could fix that.
I have not removed the butt plate to look in there.

The new "soft Touch" stocks on the Cz 455 SS models are imo a home run.

They've got a different stock on them compared to just the blued/synthetic models? I am not seeing that anywhere.

I think there is conversation about this here at rfc in older posts.
Also cz 455 synth stock had positive opinions here at a local snipers forum.
Its like my baikal 153 synth stock, solid and no complaints as i have heard of other manufacturers guns.

I will fill the butt one day to dampen the sound, but no hurry as its not crucial issue.
Could add some weight to front by putting some metal in there and then filling with suitable material.

I really like it also. The 527 M1 synthetic stock is just as nice.

I just bought a Suppressor ready 455 American with the soft touch stock. In its price range, one of the better factory synthetic stocks I have handled. Excellent fit around the action and barrel. Curious who makes them for CZ.

I have a 455 that I filled the stock with foam and it does kill the hollow sound a good bit, just remember that some foams keep expanding for quite a while, almost comically so.



I made one heck of a mess doing this but it turned out well in the end.

A thought U may want to fill a third, wait a day and then finish it off, this will allow the fist batch to set correctly and expand. I have seen guys installing a thin 3/4" set of tubes in the butt stock about 6" to 8" long just for expansion. Then they have the option to fill those tubes with lead strips or something heavy to add weight if needed.

Thank You.
I have used foams and sounds good advice.
I will put steel nuts or something to front, wheight for stabilizing possible off hand or bad position shots in hunting situations.

Anybody know of an epoxy that will adhere well to the polymer used in the CZ synthetic stocks? I would like to bed the recoil lug area on my 527.

I'm satisfied with my synthetic SS 455 right now, and I haven't noticed the stock being particularly noisy or loud, either. It's comfortable, and I like it. I've not noticed any movement in the front, either. Overall, it's a pretty good stock, but pretty it isn't. It's bland, boring, and dull. Perfect for a hunting rifle, really.

No idea about epoxy that would adhere to CZ's synth stock, anyone ?
Could use it too.

glennasher the sound is not loud, if ear or skull bones are touching the stock one can hear a thunk which can be annoying.
I'd like to make my gun as silent as possible, could be especially beneficial when shooting pigeons from a hideout using 22LR. I have a silencer so its not loud (if not shootin HVs), but anything dampening sounds of shots, handling the bolt or possibly bumping the stock to something hard will be positive.
I suppose there is very little to gain when shootin HMR, only possible effect on overall perfomance of the guns vibrations at shot

I put one of the CZ synthetic stocks on my 455 22WMR. It's a hunting rifle and I didn't want to scratch up my nice wood stock. Since it's a WMR and not a target gun, I didn't worry about bedding or pillars. It serves it's purpose just as it left the factory.
