In the lead-up to SHOT Show 2019, CZ-USA has begun their “Monday Morning Sneak Peeks” campaign. This provides a glimpse — ahead of official press releases and full details — into new products they’ll be releasing during the next year. We at TTAG will do our level best to get y’all additional photos and info each week (ideally on Mondays) as they release new sneak peeks.

As we weren’t previously sharing these posts here on TTAG, though, let’s catch up on the past few new products that CZ-USA has shown on their Instagram page.

CZ’s 455 rimfire rifle series is no more (review of my Tacticool Suppressor Ready here). It has been replaced by the 457 seen above and below.

Changes to the 457 include a push-to-fire safety lever, a shorter, slab-sided, lighter weight action, reduced bolt throw for more scope clearance, fully adjustable trigger, sculpted bottom metal, nitride finish, and a lighter weight firing pin. Retained are the 455s interchangeable barrel system and magazine compatibility.

The CZ 457 will be available in many barrel and stock configurations chambered for .22 LR, .22 WMR, and .17 HMR.

I’m excited to test out the 457 but afraid it’ll convince me to upgrade my 455 that I love so much. Definitely money I don’tย need to spend, but the shorter bolt throw, adjustable trigger, and lighter action all sound fairly compelling.

Next up is this beauty from the lead photo. That’s CZ’s upcoming 527 MTR (Match Target Rifle). It will be available chambered in .223 or 6.5 Grendel with a heavy, threaded barrel and a target-style walnut stock.

“With a fully adjustable trigger borrowed from the 557, it can be tuned down to incredibly light pull weights, and creep and overtravel can be set to the shooter’s preference.”

We’ll try to get our hands on more photos of this gorgeous 527 MTR soon.

Finally, there’s a brand new, semi-auto shotgun in the CZ-USA stable. This is the 1012 and it’s designed to run everything from light target loads up to the stoutest 3″ magnums. Five finish options will be available, all in 12 gauge.

    • That is a Manners carbon fiber stock used on just that one model. Most of the rifles have beautiful wood stocks made of Turkish walnut. Have a look at the full line when it comes out. Cheers

    • Yes, Huglu has been CZ’s shotgun manufacturer for a very long time. The designs are CZ’s and Huglu is the production partner making them to CZ’s specs.

      On the rimfire, they will as always be available in various different wood stocks (including the one pictured) and the legit Manners CF stock also pictured. All the same stocks as the 455 really. That Precision Trainer setup was offered in the 455 for many years also.

    • I really hope the CZ 457 has a bolt face properly sized for .22LR and not one shared with the magnums. This is why the 452s are still popular.

  1. as i scrolled down and the 1012 came into view, my eyes thought the box mag was getting silly long.
    i got stumped.
    i would like a bolt in .22mag.
    any 10mm pcc’s comin’ down?

  2. I still like my left handed 452 American 22 and my CZ Southpaw Sterling 12 gage, but as a totally prejudiced lefty what does CZ have in the pipeline for me?

  3. Everytime I see new and improved, lighter weight I think ” huh they’ve found a way to cut corners, make it cheaper, and still work.” It’s the still work part, I like firearms that will still work 150 years from now. Cutting corners, cheaper, plastic, has me skeptical of the new age guns longevity.

    • In this case it’s still steel, just smaller. The receiver of the previous model definitely has extra meat on it in every direction that serves no function on a rimfire. I’ll take a nice nitride job over bluing, too, for durability and longevity purposes.

  4. I’d love to see an American sporter version with a match chamber and match grade barrel, a checked steel butt plate and preferably a bit thinner wrist and butt stock, the checkering pattern is fine. Maybe an upgrade on the wood, keep the 24″ barrel and don’t thread it for a can.

    Would CZ like to hire an American rimfire fanatic to help design the stock? lol
