The CZ 457 Royal is a luxurious take on a standard 457. The firearm features a premium American-styled walnut stock with styling with a blued barreled receiver.
With a premium walnut stock and decorative forend tip, the Royal definitely plays the part! Intended for use with a scope, it has a high, flat American-style comb and no sights, while its forend is especially long, giving it an attractive look that harkens back to early rimfire rifles. The Royal can be had with a 16.5″ barrel or a 20.5″ barrel, both threaded 1/2×20 (a European standard).
If we were to pick one thing that CZ previous rimfire platforms were lacking, it was an American-style push-to-fire safety — something Hunter’s Education instructors and 4-H shooting coaches have begged CZ to incorporate for years. Though that was the most obvious change, CZ also took the opportunity to tweak a load of small things at the same time. In addition to the receiver-mounted, push-to-fire safety, we chopped almost an inch of length from the action and slab-sided it to reduce its footprint and weight.
The stamped bottom metal of the 455 is gone, swapped for a classy two-piece interlocking system. To make scope fitment easier, we ditched the 90° bolt rotation in favor of 60°, allowing for larger ocular bell diameters with lower ring heights. To top it all off, the 457 now features a trigger adjustable for weight, creep and over-travel.
With the exact same swappable barrel system as the 455 and the same reliable polymer magazine system, the 457 is without a doubt the best rimfire platform we’ve ever fielded.
