Discontinued 2018. Built specifically to house .308-sized cartridges, the 557 Short Action also features a detachable box magazine. With less overall action length, this variant of the 557 is more compact and a little lighter, making it ideal for hunting medium game. With the same CNCed billet action and our legendary cold hammer forged barrel, the 557 is a rifle that won’t just last a lifetime, it’ll get handed down for generations. Clad in an American-style walnut stock, the new action is paired with CZ’s legendary cold hammer forged, factory-lapped barrel. The resulting rifle is destined to become a treasured hunting companion.
