457 Scout



Log in to see fewer ads
LGS had one in the racks, just came in, while I was looking it over the Eagle eyed store manager noticed a crack in the tip of the stocks fore end, they're contacting CZ to see if they'll just send a replacement stock. If so I'll go ahead and purchase it and maybe do something "different" with the cracked stock. A very neat little rifle, if I get it I'll sell at least one of my 452 Scouts. In hand it actually feels a good bit smaller than the 452 or 455.

I held a 457 Scout today myself.
I also noticed how it feels more compact then the 452. That short threaded barrel is a nice platform. The fit and quality was as nice as you would expect from CZ, naturally.
I compared it to a savage rascal, and cricket in regards to LOP and general size. Seems about the same as the Savage. I noticed how the rear sight blade had holes for dots without any white paint in the holes. Perhaps CZ missed a step or just lets the customer decide if they want to paint it themselves.
Maybe Ill buy one too.
My 1yo will look like dad in a few years with that Scout in hand.
I gave my 452 Scout to a nephew a few years ago, when I had no idea that id have a son now.

Enjoy yours GMD1950

After searching for a 457 Scout for a few months, I Received a call from a local dealer week before last saying he had them available so I ordered one. Picked it up last Friday, and spent some range time with it on Sunday.

Functioned great, probably 200-250 rounds down range, some with suppressor. Once I adjusted the front sight elevation a bit for the distance/ammo I was shooting (POI was initially low at 50 yds), it was knocking down steel with every shot at 50-75 yards if I did my part. No surprise, saw my other two Scouts (452s) are both great shooters. Will have to take both out for a side by side comparison, but so far I really like the 457 scout. Threaded barrel and a nice trigger from the factory are definite pluses. Only thing I am considering adding at some point is a receiver aperture sight to lengthen the sight radius. Did this in one of my 452 Scouts, and it is one of my favorites.

457 Scout

If it were me Iíd see if they could get CZ to knock some $$$ off the gun and then if the barrel shoots Iíd just sell the stock for cheap and pick up an MDT LSS-RF chassis on sale come Black Friday.
Could also sell off the stock threaded barrel and get a nice drop in replacement if you wanted to go all out.

Hopefully I'll learn today what CZ says, if they insist on replacing the whole rifle I've already told the LGS I'll take it, I picked up a 455 Scout not long ago and the factory threaded barrel is handy.

Gerald, if you do end up getting that 457 Scout, I'd love to see some pics comparing it to your 452 and 455 Scouts. I'm especially interested since you say it feels noticeably smaller than the 452 - while I've shot a 457 Trainer, I didn't have a 452 on hand to compare it to and didn't notice much difference size-wise on that particular gun versus my 452s.

Just curious, what kind of groups are you getting from your 455 scout? Thinking of snagging a 457 scout. I won’t be doing anything but squirrel and bunny hunting.

The 455 got moved into a 455 Synthetic stock and I've not had it out to test yet. I'll try to round up a 452 and the 455 and the 457 soon. These things usually don't stay stock long.

Dang I like the 457's trigger, about 10 minutes with a bit, a wrench and two metric hex wrenches and I'm at somewhere between 1-1 1/2 pounds (I've hid my Lyman Electronic pull gauge from myself again). Bolt movement is okay, will improve rapidly most likely, had to remove the rear sight to mount the Burris Timberline 4.5-14x scope far enough forward with this short stock. Raining so photos will have to wait.

Okay found the gauge, 5 pull average is 1 lb. 6 ozs., plenty light for a hunter.

Gerald, ditto Gripen's comment. Comparison pics if not too much trouble would be appreciated. I held a 457 Scout, and it seemed smaller than my Winchester 67A "Boy's Rifle"...my only frame of reference.

I really like my 457 scout too. I bought it from the brick and mortar budsgunshop and range.

Iíve only put about 20 rounds through the rifle. Below is the only target Iíve shot. That CCI Sub Sonic HP group at bottom left is pretty good especially considering thatís a very economical Monstum FFP scope. Iím even tickled with this $90 scope at 50 yards.

Does anyone make a 17hm2 barrel that will fit this? I think that would be so cool.

I will probably get 3-4 more of these for grandchildren.

What distance did you shoot the Scout? I see 50 yds for the Anschutz. Don't tell me it outshot that gun!

Yep, Both were shot at same 50 yard distance.

Only trying two ammo types looks like I may have stumbled on great round for scout but not the 1712 Annie.

Iíve improved my bench setup in the two weeks I shot these rifles. The Monstum was at 7x. The Annie was at 8x (March ffp).

I was very impressed with this little cz.
