CZ457 choice



Log in to see fewer ads
While waiting on a CZ457 At-One 24" , I have seen a lot of MTR's 20" for sale . Should I wait for the At-One to come in or take the MTR. Which would you chose between the two . I am planning to shoot in the factory class . Thanks

Either one would be more than adequate for that I would think. The advantages of the AT-ONE would be flexibility in adjustments for your length of pull and cheek weld. The MTR would give you the match chamber however, it is a little more picky about ammo and from the recent posts on the MTR it seems to like the expensive stuff.

I like to tinker and the AT-ONE is letting me have fun doing just that. I have the 24" version and love it. I held a MTR in my hand and I was falling in lust with it also but realized besides its ammo appetite, it really is a target rifle. I do not think I would ever hunt with it. I could see myself hunting with the AT-ONE.

Only draw for me would be the Match chambered barrel of the MTR, personally don't care for the stock, if my At One turns out to not be a shooter a barrel will change that. Just my opinion.

Now that this door has been opened which barrel maker would be your FIRST choice and 2nd choice. Thanks, Jerry

First https://internationalbarrels.com/ do not let the prices here surprise you they are in Canadian Dollars. Check the US dollar pricing. Second https://www.lothar-walther.com/drop-...55457-barrels/ I have used both and they are both great barrels. The Lothar Walther I have is not sensitive about the ammunition normally as long as it is not cheap junk. The International Barrel is a little more sensitive. They are both great shooters. Both liked SK and Lapua ammunition the best. I am the person that likes the longer barrels in the 20 inch or 24 inch areas far more than the 16 inch length. These have held .375 and less for me consistently. .500 or less always at 50 yards. This is more dependent on wind than anything else.

I would also wait for the CZ457 At-One 24 inch. However if a 20 inch turned up I would get that one instead.

Why would you choose the 20" barrel over the 24" ? Thanks

I've had good barrels from Lilja myself but I've seen others complain, I bought a Lothar Walther .17m2 barrel and mounted it on a 457 but haven't shot it, I know folks who've had good results with Anschutz take off barrels fitted to 452's. I've seen a couple of good reports on the IBI barrels but don't know anyone personally who has one.

gmd1950 , I am about ready to "pull the trigger" on a MTR , only because it has the flat bottom forearm . I will be using a two piece joystick rest with a flat bag . But I appreciate the info sent my way . Cz is a new venture for me as I normally shoot a stable of 40x's , and Winchester 52's which are not allowed in the factory class configuration .

Be sure to check factory class weight limitations for the comps you plan to shoot in. It is difficult to get the MTR (and probably the 24" 457 At-One) below 9# without a very light scope and rings. The usual target scopes, especially with variable magnification, are a bit too heavy to make weight for some factory class limitations. YMMV

Personal preference more than anything else. Also the fact that these are the primary lengths for the manufacturers today. I could go off into a long bunch of assertions but that is what it would all boil down to in the end. You may find lots of Eley that are perfect in these barrels as well. The main thing is to shoot quality ammunition today. The barrel makers are very good in the manufacturing process today. In the past they were mediocre at best. Just choose a good name brand barrel and ammunition and you will be very happy.
