Rifle Review: The CZ 457 Scout - The Ideal Beginner's Rifle

November 2, 2019

Built to be an ideal first gun for young shooters, the 457 Scout comes with an assortment of features to make learning how to shoot a breeze. 


The Scout also incorporates all the standard features of the 457 Series, ensuring  accuracy and precision.




Right off the bat, the Scout's short length-of-pull (LOP) is evident. Measuring at 12”, this short LOP makes it much easier for a young shooter to properly mount and fire the Scout. Due to the modularity of the 457 Series, adding a larger stock once the 12" LOP is outgrown is effortless.


Moving onto the sights, the Scout is outfitted with a simple leaf rear sight and blade front (rear adjustable for windage, front for elevation), learning the basics of sight picture has never been easier. And when you're ready for a scope, 11mm dovetails make scope mounting a breeze.


In order to teach ammo conservation, the 457 Scout ships with a single shot adapter. Any 457/455 magazine will fit, from 5 to 25 rounds.


One notable upgrade from the 455 models to the 457 is the American-style push-to-fire safety. That's not the only change, CZ ditched the 90° bolt rotation in favor of 60°, allowing for larger ocular bell diameters with lower ring heights. To top it all off, the 457 now features a trigger adjustable for weight, creep and over-travel.


The Scout also incorporates a standard 1/2×28 muzzle thread, allowing for easy muzzlebrake or suppressor installation.
