you might end up really liking the 457, if not, there are lots of the older CZs on the used market.
And they finally got the safety right!

Maybe those CZs I sold because I couldn't get used to the safety...............

Maybe I wasn't the only one.

Judging by his avatar and his screen alias.......he's just one of those guys who likes to inspire controversy.

They kind of remind me of my tack-driving, bug-shooting Marlin.

I never knew it was a child's rifle.



Well aren't we all just kids at heart?

I kind of agree with the OP. I have original Brnos and CZ 455s. I like the longer action because it seems like a center fire rifle. I like the 90 degree bolt lift. Ditto. I like the Winchester Model 70 type of trigger which is actually better than a Model 70. I like the way the bolt can be disassembled without tools. I really, really like the original safety because it locks the striker not the sear. The double locking lugs and the threaded barrel of the 452 are kind of neat but I don't think they really affect accuracy. The milled guard and separate bolt release of the 457 are real improvements but I can live without them.

None of this is meant to denigrate people who shoot the 457. If I was shopping for a bolt action .22 I would certainly get a 457. But I have a bunch of the older rifles and no real reason to add any more.

just fyi, the 457 bolt can be disassembled without tools. The 452 needs a little help from a easily fabbed tool.

I tend to agree that this thread was just to stir the pot. Obviously it worked...

Lots of folks on RFC, post to get their post count up and just to try to sound knowledgeable, which is rarely the case.

I agree, I have seen things posted on here that are just not true, were talking about sub 700 dollar rifles and most want them to shoot like 2000 dollar rifles, not gonna happen as a rule, I also doubt most people take the time or go to the expense of lot testing ammo, some do but most dont, you will never know what your rifle is capable of until you do this.

Yep. I lot tested Eley Tenex and Eley Match. Found a lot of each that my MTR likes. Not a whole lot of difference so I bought more of the Match, but I am shooting Tenex in the club ARA factory class championship Saturday. I am shooting in the state ARA factory match later this month, mostly just for the experience. Some of those guys are real good. I am just starting, but I am having a blast doing it.

My 457 American shoots better than my 452 American with set-trigger ever did. My only complaint is that the 457 trigger is not very adjustable. So far won't go below 3.5# on my gauge. Maybe will 'wear-in' over the next few hundred rounds.

I would revisit your adjustable 457 trigger.
I got mine just under 2lbs,1.8 iirc.
It sounds like maybe you missed something? With all due respect, have you read the threads on this topic?
Lots of folks have trouble getting under 2lbs, but your issue doesn't sound familiar to me.
You likely have a faulty trigger assy if your lowest setting is 3.5lbs. After all attempts.
Best wishes.
