Press Releases > CZ 453 American and Varmint

August 2005

CZ-USA is pleased to introduce the CZ 453 bolt-action rimfire series now available in both the varmint and American models. The 453 takes the time tested platform of the CZ 452 and adds a fully adjustable, single set trigger system mechanically identical to that featured on the CZ 527 and CZ 550 centerfire rifles.

In addition to the single set trigger, the new CZ 453 retains all of the quality and accuracy of the 452. The CZ bolt-action rimfire rifles are manufactured from steel billets, not tubing or plastic. The barrels are hammer forged for accuracy and long life. The safety is located above the rear of the bolt and provides a positive firing pin block.

More on the single-set trigger:
The single-set trigger provides both a standard hunting and a light, target style trigger pull on the same rifle depending on the demands of the situation. By operating the rifle in the same manner as any other bolt-action rifle, the rifle functions with a normal hunting rifle trigger pull (adjustable down to 2 lbs). If you are shooting from the bench, or have time to set up for the shot, push the trigger forward until you feel and hear a click. Now your normal hunting rifle has a target trigger pull (adjustable to less than ½ lb).

The CZ 453 American comes with a 5 round detachable magazine. Single shot adapters and 10 rd magazines are also available and are interchangeable with 452 models of the same caliber.

CZ 453 American: Barrel Length: 22.5”; Weight: 6.17 lbs; LOP: 13.75”
CZ 453 Varmint: Barrel Length: 20.9”; Weight: 6.84 lbs; LOP: 13.75”

MSRP for the CZ 453 American and Varmint is $530.00 in .22 LR and .17 Mach 2.
