Press Releases > CZ 453 American and Varmint Now Available in .17 HMR

July 2006

CZ-USA is pleased to introduce the CZ 453 bolt-action rimfire chambered
for .17 HMR 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,  $560.00 in .17 HMR
