Just picked up a new CZ-457 Varmint Precision Trainer in 22lr. Added a EGW 20 moa picatiny rail and a Sightron 10-50x60mm scope mounted with low Leupold QRW rings. Screwed on a Pilot 22 lr suppressor for good measure. Planning on having some fun with the new toy this weekend. Whatta Hobby!

Of course. Have to suppress for squirrels cause they have sensitive ears.
Very nice. My 457 Target/Varmit is by far the most accurate rifle I have. And oh what a trigger at .8, make sure to throw in a YoDave trigger spring, breaks like crystal.

Will look into the YoDave springs. Thanks for the info. After using a Rem 40x in 22lr, I am looking forward to this whole new picture.

Have a CZ 453 varmint heavy barrel 22lr with a 36x Weaver. The set trigger I'm not to keen about as I forget to set it half the time. Like the looks of your 457 CZ. Might try and upgrade to your stock if a fellow could find one reasonable priced. The Bergara is probably close in accuracy to the CZ's and would make another fine addition to my safe. 17 hmr is an excellent choice if a fellow needs to reach out a bit more. Have a CZ 22 mag that never really floated my boat might do some swapping at the LGS. Cheers CWO

Had a chance to shoot here a couple hundred rnds today. Seems to like about any fodder. I can see some trigger adjustment is necessary. Comes way too stiff from the factory for my likes. Have been used to 3oz and 6oz on my precision rifles. Looks to be a pretty simple operation with the right springs added. Should get to it later today and make some changes. Whatta Hobby!

Shot a hundred rnds this morning. 50 SK match and 50 tenex without the can attached. Target is tenex. Adjusted the trigger down from 3.5 lbs to 2.2 lbs which was the best I could get with standard parts. Waiting on a Yodave spring kit which should get it down under 1LB and a Timney trigger which should be about 6 - 8 oz which is what I have been using on my other precision rifles. The CZ-457 has the potential and the only down side I see is the heavy trigger pull. Found myself waiting for the dang thing to fire. Felt like lighting a cannon fuse and waiting. Whatta Hobby!

Art, I am interested in your results with and without the can. Also what type can you are running. I don’t own a dedicated rimfire suppressor but I want one.
Running a Pilot suppressor. Absolutely no change in 50 yd zero with or without it. Also tenex and SK/Lapua Match have exactly the same settings. I am one happy camper.

Yes, 16". No not looking into any other barrels for the moment, but I have been known to play.

Did a little shooting with my CZ 457 VPT this morning. 3 groups. 2- 10 rnd and 1 20 rnd. Best 10 was 5/8" centers. 20 was 3/4" centers. Using tenex with a slight breeze. Shot at 50 yds off bipod with rear bag using my three legged shooting bench. Whatta Hobby!
