Built to be an ideal first gun for young shooters, the Scout has a short 12” length of pull. With simple leaf rear sight and blade front (rear adjustable for windage, front for elevation), learning the basics of sight picture has never been easier. 11mm dovetails on the receiver make adding a scope a breeze.
457 Scouts have a muzzle that’s threaded 1/2×28, allowing for various muzzle devices.
Adding a larger stock is easier than ever once kids outgrow the short length of pull, as all 457s use the same stock inletting (with two barrel channels specific to standard and varmint-weight barrels). The entire 457 platform is modular, meaning swapping different barrels/chamberings or stocks is done quickly and easily with only a few tools.
Shipped with a single shot adapter to teach ammo conservation, any 457/455 magazine will fit, from 5 to 25 rounds.
If we were to pick one thing that our 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 us to incorporate for years. Though that was the most obvious change, we 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.

CZ 457 Series: A New Generation of Modern Rimfire Rifles
The CZ 457 series offers exceptional user comfort due to its easy, fast and reliable operation, even with a mounted riflescope. For maximum safety, it comes with a push-to-fire safety on the right side of the receiver, striker status indicator and a separate bolt extractor control. Shooting accuracy is ensured with its adjustable trigger mechanism that features low trigger pull weight and excellent travel, combined with a noticeably lighter striker and a new type of bedding. Other benefits include an extremely durable anticorrosion finish on metal parts, easy change of caliber by users and reliable polymer magazines that are compatible with the previous generation of CZ rimfire rifles.
Note: This firearm has a match chamber. Firearms with match chambers have tighter tolerances, which can affect the reliability of the firearm when using ammo that has loose tolerances or is of a non-standard spec for that caliber. Use match grade ammunition to maximize the accuracy enhancing effect that result from the tighter tolerances from match chambers.
