CZ (Ceska Zbrojovka) 452 American

Description

The CZ 452 American is a bolt-action rifle chambered in .22 LR, .17 HMR, and .22 WMR. The American is one of eight variations on the CZ 452. Like all 452 models, the American has a cold hammer-forged barrel and a trigger that is adjustable for weight of pull. The American is distinct for its straight-combed Turkish walnut stock, giving the gun a more domestic appearance from the Czech-based manufacturer. Right-handed versions of the 452 American have been discontinued and are being replaced by the CZ 455.  CZ recommends the rifle for hunting.

The 452 American features a 22.5″ barrel with a blued finish. The barrel can be had with a threaded muzzle which allows the shooter to attach sound supressors. The steel receiver has a dovetail groove for mounting a telescopic sight. The 452 American also features a detachable magazine with a capacity of five. The gun has an overall length of 40.2″.

Česká zbrojovka translates as “Czech Army”, so it comes as no surprise then that CZ firearms has a long history of supplying weapons to militaries around the globe. The CZ name can be found on a variety of handguns, smallbore and bigbore rifles, military rifles and submachine guns.
