CZ 557 American 6.5 Creedmoor 24″ Barrel


Availability: 1 in stock

SKU: CZ55741112MFBBA Categories: , Tag:

With a 24” version of our cold hammer forged and lapped barrel, the 557 American picks up where the short-barreled Sporter left off. The longer barrel squeezes a bit more velocity out of the chosen chamberings, to include the increasingly popular 6.5 Creedmoor. Its American-pattern stock has strong pistol grip with a bit of a palm swell and is adorned with a classic checkering design borrowed from our UHR.

With a high comb and no sights, this rifle is intended for use with a scope, and built-in dovetails mean there are no bases required — allowing scopes to be mounted directly to the action and enabling a simpler, more robust attachment method.
