I’m happy with mine, but I know of Americans that really shoot well also. Either one would be good, but I already have a 452 Trainer, so I wanted a bull barrel.

I got lucky and got a MTR not long after they were released. Didn't need to pay retail either. Then I got a Varmint. Both rifles shoot better than me.

I bought a 457 Youth Carbine. It has a 12" LOP. I bought it thinking it will be ideal for my grand children. They aren't quite big enough yet to get behind it, but they will soon.

I put a very economical Monstrum scope on the rifle (2x7). Something I wouldn't normally even consder, but I wanted something I wouldn't be bothered about if the child was unkind to it.

I've only put about 20 rounds through this little rifle so far. I sighted it in at 50 yards and then shot three groups as seen on this target. I was shooting my newest Annie and this rifle...high end to low end among my rifles. My bench was a patio table and I continued to have to shift my hold between shots so not a fair trial, but you can see the little 57 shot very well with the CCI Sub-sonic. I used the method of measuring from the center of the two furthest bullet holes. 5-shot groups.

By the way, this was the first time I've ever shot for groups, with any rimfire, at anything past 30-35 yards.

The other rifle in the picture is my newest 1712 with McMillan stock with I love.

First CZ was a 457 Match Target Rifle. That started the madness.

Held a 457 American..... And couldn't let go.

Slipped around and bought a 457 Trainer because my "stash " was burning a hole in my pocket.

FINALLY found a 457 AT-One with the 24 inch barrel. The gun I wanted originally to be the first CZ.

Now looking a 457 Lux with "lottery" wood.

Hopefully a 452 Grand Finale for Christmas.

Bought a 457 Lux .22LR first to shoot in scoped and iron sight matches. It was a little hard to shoot from bags because of the narrow forend. Traded it for a 457 Varmint .22LR. Much easier to shoot but the trigger was only about 1 lb. with the YoDave spring. Traded back for the Lux (8 oz. factory trigger). Started shooting it from a Caldwell Tackdriver bag and its a lot more stable. Both rifles shot about the same with a sight edge to the Varmint but neither has had over 500 rounds through them. I'll keep the Lux because of the trigger and it's versatility. Luckily I use a dealer who doesn't try to get rich off each transaction.......

Fred's got to be loving you Hank...

I hadn't planned on getting a 457 initially then ran up on a nice 457 Varmint with some very nice wood and a equally nice price and the old Wood Ho' kicked in and I had one.









And the even better news is it shoots better than it looks so far.

CZ 457s - Initial Plan

Initially wanted the Varmint MTR and was lucky to find one early on and am very satisfied with the purchase. .

Next on the list was the Varmint At-One but a Lux ( 22 LR) with some decent wood got in the way. Another - very satisfied with the purchase.

Then back to the original plan to purchase the At-One with a 24 barrel in 22 LR. Another . . (I really like that new 24 Varmint barrel)

So I got the two I initially wanted and the Lux with nice wood was just to nice to walk away from. Accuracy is very good on all three. No plans for another . . . But we all know how that goes.

As soon as I found out the Varmint MTR had a minimum spec chamber, I wanted one. It was a couple of photos of the 457 American that got me paying attention to the new line of CZ RF rifles, and since I couldn't find a MTR, I bought an American with nice wood. It took a few months before I happened to be here when I got an email from one of the wholesalers I have an account with, saying that they'd just received several of the MTRs, and I managed to snag one. The stock wasn't anywhere close to as stunning as some of the CZs that Gerald has managed to find, but it's decent in my eyes - there's some minor figure in the buttstock, but the nicer figure is up front in the forend (where it's likely more of a liability than an asset), and it shot so much better than the American did...

Eventually, I replaced the American's factory with a Shilen select match ratchet rifled blank, which I fitted, chambered, finished, and glued into the action with Loctite #609 - and it shoots about as good as I'd hoped it would. I was so satisfied with the first Shilen that I decided to put another one on the MTR. So here they are - semi-custom 457s that satisfied my desire for very accurate CZs.
