The CZ 455 American is a high quality rimfire rifle designed for the U.S. market. The American model
is true to the lines of the classic American sporter style rifle. Made without sights, the top of the receiver is
machined with a 3/8” wide dovetail groove for mounting standard rimfire dovetail mounts.
The CZ 455 American comes with a 5 round polymer magazine. Ten round magazines are available
as an optional extra. The safety is located above the rear of the bolt and provides a positive firing pin block.
This new model CZ 455 rimfire rifle is based on classical design, but incorporates a lot of improvements
affecting most of the main parts of this rifle. First of all we have answered the wishes of many of our
customers for having an action that enables barrels to be interchanged. CZ 455 COMBO includes an
additional barrel, magazine and tools for changing calibres.
New developments and manufacturing processes have allowed shortening of barrel while retaining
traditionally high accuracy. Also there have been small changes in the stock in order to achieve an even
greater comfort during shooting. This was attained by optimising the grip ergonomics as well as other
small changes. A new method of connecting the barrelled-action with the stock means only two screws
are needed for improved securing, simpler tightening and superior appearance. The sights have also
had a makeover. The rear sight is adjustable for elevation and windage and the new shape of front
sight base facilitates precise aiming.The use of cold hammer forged barrels has been retained as well as
the receiver being made from a single billet of high quality steel.
