CZ457 SYNTHETIC UPDATE


Recommended Posts

Hi all, just an update.I have had this rifle for over a year now and still really like it a lot. I have not modified it in any way and it is as out of the box.

It is an easy rifle to shoot well with a pretty good trigger (pulling at 2.6 lbs out of the box and very smooth), accurate, lightweight and utterly reliable.

I now have the benefit of hindsight and  purchasing this rifle was a good decision and I would do so again absolutely.

I use an inexpensive but very good Hawke Vantage x2-x7 32mm A.O. scope with an illuminated reticle. I sometimes use a SAK moderator on the gun, a very good mod.

Have a good weekend.🙂.

You’ll never go wrong with a CZ, I’ve had my little.22 for years and I’ve treated it with no respect at all and it’s never let me down, the CZ .17hmr I’ve got is unbelievable accurate, I don’t think I’d buy any other rimfire now, I also have a browning T-bolt in hmr and very rarely comes out the cabinet 👍

Yup Stavross, I agree.The rimfire I had before the 457 was an Annie which I sold and bought the 457 which for me was the correct choice..Yes, I would also only buy CZ rimfires (probably).There are lots of great rimfires available on the market absolutely, but I love how utterly reliable my 457 is.It just works.

Have had my 457 since july and put a Hawke vantage 4-16 x 44 scope on it.  A lovely gun . I've also got a 452 which i have had 16 years.

The only trouble i have had with both of them is that the spent cases have been getting stuck in the chambers.

 I put new claws a spring in the 452 bolt and cleaned the chamber but it still does it.

I have been using winny subs but today bought some CCI, Eley and Norma subs so will be trying them all out in the next

couple of weeks. A few people have been moaning about winny subs.  Got a Parker Hale mod on mine.

Not had any feeding or extraction issues with the 457. I know of a few lads with 457s in the shooting group I am in and they also have had no issues with feeding / extraction.Are you short stroking the bolt after the shot?..Give the claws a clean with a toothbrush and around the entrance to the chamber with a cotton bud.This should sort any issues out..Apologies if you know this.

Have done everything you have said with the 452 but could be short stroking the bolt. But the spent cases take some prising out.

The 457 has not had much use so shouldn't be dirty but i will try new ammo and report back in a couple of weeks.

Its the ammo. Many are reporting issues with current Winchester ammo.

Why they shut the plant in Australia I'll never know.

Muppets.

Norma and Eley work really great in mine . Norma are absolutely spot on up to 80-90 yards after that the group start to open up . Eley on the other hand had very nice groups out to 120–125 yards so far

      Hello all.🙂
      Just an update as it has been a while.I have been looking for a subsonic .22LR hollow point that shoots well from a cold clean bore and have recently started using RWS subs which do well, typically from the first shot..I have used a few different brands of subsonic H.P.s and they all group quite well after 5 or so fouling shots, but RWS like the cold clean bore,needless to say I am a happy and for me, decent shooting.🙂.I have used the RWS before in the old Annie 1416 DG and it was equally consistent in that rifle.
      A couple of typical below all from a cold clean bore..My scope is a Hawke Vantage x2 -x7 32mm A.O. with illuminated reticle which is a great field scope but lacks magnification for target shooting so is sometimes difficult to deduce if a shot has been pulled, but I love the scope.
      Have a good weekend all.🙂

      If anyone’s interested, I decided to pattern and compare .22 and 9mm flobert shotshells. Using my 14 inch Anschütz, I shot a .22 Winchester superX #12 shot at a rat target at five yards to see if it would likely be effective at that range. To compare using my 24 inch Manu-Arm bolt action, I shot 9mm fiocchi #6 shot at the same range, and 9mm rws acorn brand #10 at the same range. I went on to extend the range of the 9mm flobert’s at ten, fifteen and twenty yards for comparison. Here’s the results.....
