CZ have announced a new edition of their new 457 line of precision rimfire rifles, the 457 Varmint Precision Trainer MTR that comes with the 457 Varmint Precision Chassis MTR. The new .22LR rifle has a Luth-AR adjustable stock with orange accents and a cold hammer forged, factory-lapped barrel with a match chamber and 1/2×28 threads for mounting a suppressor. The rifle has an MSRP of $1,225.

Here’s what CZ have to say about the new rifle:

On the heels of CZ’s introduction of the 457 Varmint Precision Trainer MTR comes the 457 Varmint Precision Chassis MTR in 22 LR. This precision rimfire is packed with features that make it a serious competition gun, but with a price tag nowhere near that of a custom rimfire rifle.

While CZ is known for their tight chamber tolerances that aid in making their rifles some of the most accurate production rimfires available, they first debuted an even tighter ‘Match’ chamber in the popular 457 Varmint MTR. This wood-stocked plinker became a favorite among shooters wanting even more accuracy than the standard 457 delivers.

The MTR variants of the VPT and VPC allow rimfire competition shooters to buy an affordable, match-chambered rifle that’s ready to win competitions right out of the box, eliminating the perceived need to upgrade any major components, putting both 457 variants a step above the competition.

The 457 VPC MTR comes with CZ’s famous cold hammer-forged and lapped barrel, 16 inches in length and with 1/2×28 threads for mounting a suppressor or muzzle device. It rides in an incredibly stable aluminum chassis system that is equipped with an adjustable Luth-AR stock, and the rifle features a fully adjustable trigger, a 5-round detachable box magazine and integrated 11mm dovetails for scope installation, coming in at an MSRP of $1,225.

Like CZ’s line of factory-tuned premium pistols, the 457 VPC MTR features orange accents to show that it is a special version of an already premium rifle. The VPC has an orange trigger guard, making it easily recognized on the gun rack and at the shooting range.

    several years back i bought a remington model 5 with match chamber and bore, it's so tight i have to use 20 cal brushes etc but it shoots one hole every shot stacks up and it's in a shitty wood stock and definitely didn't cost half of this cz
