CZ 457 CARBON
An extremely lightweight rimfire rifle that opens up a new dimension in shooting
Where to buy
Introducing the first CZ firearm equipped with a carbon fiber wrapped barrel. As a result of this highly advanced technology, the new CZ 457 CARBON weighs only 2,15 kg. That’s right – 350 grams less than the lightest rimfire rifle to date from the popular CZ 457 series! Yet, it has the accuracy of varmint models and provides many other benefits.
THE PERFECT RIMFIRE RIFLE FOR EXTENDED STAYS IN THE COUNTRYSIDE, AS WELL AS FOR RECREATIONAL AND SPORT SHOOTING
A key feature of the new CZ 457 CARBON 22 LR is its innovative composite barrel, which combines the best characteristics of steel and carbon fiber, and provides many unique advantages.
The heart of the CZ 457 CARBON is a heavy profile, cold hammer forged barrel equipped with a MATCH chamber. Carbon fiber is then wrapped around it and glued in place. The resulting steel-carbon barrel is not only significantly lighter, but also dissipates heat better during extended firing sessions and vibrates less after each shot.
Add an ergonomic polymer stock with a soft-touch camouflage pattern finish, together with a highly durable finish on metal components, and you have the perfect rifle for long hunting trips, night hunts with thermal imaging or night vision, or just having a lot of fun at the range. You won't get tired of shooting the CZ 457 CARBON!
Extremely light and highly precise steel barrel with carbon wrap
The CZ 457 CARBON features an innovative steel-carbon barrel, which is specially designed and manufactured by CZ. It is not only considerably lighter than an all-steel barrel, but also dissipates heat better during extended firing sessions and vibrates less after each shot.
We'll let you in on one of the secrets that explain why all models in the CZ 457 series are so accurate. Something you wouldn't discover during a normal inspection of the rifle. It's the extremely low weight of the striker. CZ designers have calculated that the CZ 457 series firing pin is 62% lighter than on the previous CZ generation of rimfire rifles! CZ designers have managed to find a solution that guarantees completely reliable firing, while eliminating unwanted vibrations. Moreover, the CZ 457 series firing pin is designed to do away with the risk of damage during dry training!
Selected 22 LR caliber models in the CZ 457 series - currently e.g. the CZ 457 CARBON or CZ 457 MTR – are equipped with barrels that feature a MATCH chamber. This means they are manufactured with the latest technology that takes them to the very limits of CIP tolerances. The result? Guaranteed accuracy of 1 MOA when using match ammunition!
Adjustable trigger mechanism
The innovative CZ 457 series is highly modular and customizable, which allows it to meet the wants and needs of each customer. This also applies to the trigger mechanism. Trigger pull from the factory is set at 12 N, but you can easily and safely adjust it within a wide range of approximately 8 to 15 N. Trigger travel is also adjustable from 0,5 to 5 mm.
60° rotation of the bolt handle
For fast and comfortable operation, the CZ 457 rimfire rifle series has a shortened bolt rotation of only 60°. Combined with its ergonomically shaped bolt handle, reloading is extremely smooth and responsive in all shooting positions, and you avoid the risk of bumping the handle against mounted optics.
Shooting comfort was a high priority in the development of stocks for all CZ 457 series models, regardless of the material used in their construction. You can look forward to a fully reliable and comfortable grip for each and every model, as well as extremely fast and convenient target acquisition.
Striker status indicator
CZ 457 series firearms always clearly inform the shooter and those around them about the safety status of the firearm through the use of a color-coded indicator, which protrudes from the rear of the bolt when the mechanism is cocked. The status of the indicator can also be quickly and easily checked by touch, for example in dim lighting or at night.
A key safety feature for models in the CZ 457 series is the exceptionally silent, push-to-fire safety that is natural and intuitive to operate, as it disengages in the direction of fire. This makes using the rifle completely safe and comfortable.
Separate bolt removal control
A new type of bedding has been developed for the CZ 457 series in cooperation with top sport shooters and leading experts in modern firearm design and technology. It is utilized on models with wood stocks and eliminates the influence that variable expansion of the wood has on the sighting in and accuracy of the firearm when shooting under different temperature conditions. In short: the extreme accuracy of your CZ 457 rimfire rifle will remain consistent throughout the year and in all types of weather!
The bolt can be opened and removed, even with the safety is engaged
The many advantages of safety mechanisms found on the CZ 457 series also includes the possibility of opening the bolt when the safety is engaged on the firearm. Due to this feature, you can safely check the condition of your rimfire rifle at any time or unload it without having to disengage the safety.
CZ’s own highly durable, anti-corrosion finish on metal components withstands demanding weather conditions and sweat from your hands. With the CZ 457 CARBON, anytime is the right time for your next hunting adventure or shooting session.
Its innovative and extremely lightweight steel-carbon barrel is 525 mm (20") long. In addition to significantly reducing the weight of the rifle, it provides a number of other benefits, such as efficient dissipation of heat during prolonged firing and reduced vibration after each shot.
A polymer stock with soft-touch finish withstands harsh climates and rough handling. It provides extreme shooting comfort and allows for quick, accurate target acquisition.
The sophisticated digital camouflage pattern on the stock helps you reach an ideal shooting distance when hunting.
The steel-carbon barrel is equipped with a MATCH chamber, which contributes to the extreme accuracy of the CZ 457 CARBON.
Standard equipment includes a 5-round polymer magazine, which does not protrude from the lines of the rifle. However, 10-, 15- or even 20-round magazines are available as aftermarket components.
An extremely low weight of just 2,15 kg opens up a wide range of applications.
Do you need a 22 LR caliber rifle that you won't get tired of carrying, even during a full day in difficult terrain? Are you looking for an accurate rimfire rifle that you can comfortably operate, even when fitted with powerful optical sights? Or do you just want to have a lot of shooting fun? The ultralight CZ 457 CARBON is your best choice.
