Rimfire for Southpaws – CZ Releases Two New Left-Handed 457 Models

An ergonomically correct rifle is something that a lot of left-handed shooters often spend lots of cash on. Not anymore, CZ firearms have just announced that they will be releasing two new left-handed 457 models chambered in 22LR and 22WMR for their American and Varmint 457 series rifles. These new rifles will featured completely reversed controls optimized for left-handed shooter use and will still retain all of the great features that other shooters love about the CZ 457 rimfire rifles.

The controls for the new Left-handed CZ 457 Varmint and American have been modified to be on the “correct” side for left-handed shooters but are otherwise still the same rifles as the right-handed versions. The left-handed CZ 475 rifles come with cold hammer-forged barrels with an industry-standard 1:16 twist rate, threaded muzzle, and 5-shot detachable magazines which are backward compatible with previous versions of CZ rimfire rifles. The adjustable triggers can be fine-tuned for your desired weight and travel and the bolts feature a short 60° throw for fast cycling when operated by a seasoned hunter. The new left-handed CZ 457 rimfire rifles are available for order now from your CZ dealer and will retail for $589 for the CZ 457 American (for both 22LR and 22WMR), and $625.00 for the CZ 457 Varmint (available in 22LR only).

These new models inherit the advanced features of the CZ 457 series of bolt action rifles but with left-hand comfort and ease of use. The bolt, push-to-fire safety, and a separate bolt extractor control mirror right-hand rifle models for left-hand comfort. The striker status indicator located at the rear of the bolt provides a quick visual check while hunting or competition shooting. A shortened 60° bolt throw allows rapid and convenient reloading and increases clearance between the bolt and mounted optics.
