The special Manners carbon-fiber composite stock on the CZ 457 Varmint Precision Trainer/SR provides a rock-solid platform. It is finished in a stylish, three-color camouflage pattern with a base of carbon fiber peeking through the background. The stock itself is built with multiple layers of carbon fiber and fiberglass, hand-laid in high-temperature epoxy resins to create the ultimate in strength and durability.

The Varmint Precision Trainer/SR features a 24-inch, tapered Varmint barrel for precision shooting with other barrel lengths available. The “SR” in the model name means Suppressor-Ready, and the rifle sports 1/2×28 threading at barrel’s end. This rifle drives tacks-quietly!

This rifle and all members of the CZ 457 family, now feature an American-style push-to-fire safety. To make the rifle a bit more comfortable in hand, the action has also been trimmed back nearly one-inch in length, and slab-sided to reduce the footprint and weight of the actions.

To improve shooting with a scope mounted on the 457’s, CZ-USA replaced the 90º bolt rotation of the past in favor of a 60º rotation, provides more room between bolt handle and scope for easier cycling of rounds. The change also allows for the use of scopes with larger ocular bell diameters and lower ring heights.

There’s no need to buy an expensive after-market trigger with the CZ 457 family of rimfires. The 457’s now feature a trigger that is adjustable for weight, creep and overtravel, so it can be fine-tuned for each shooter.

Other features include a detachable magazine system and a hardy nitride finish that stands up to hard use in the field. For ease of optics mounting, an 11mm dovetail is milled right into the receiver.

Another version of the rifle, the 457 Pro Varmint Suppressor-Ready, is a bit nimbler thanks to a 16.5-inch barrel. The 457 Pro Varmint is outfitted with a black-painted laminate stock which incorporates features found on much more expensive stocks, without pushing the overall price of the rifle through the roof. The short barrel gives plenty of time for the cartridge to get a full burn, while also increasing the rigidity of the barrel.

There are many .22 rifles under $150 and I guess you didn’t like the link I gave. So Google low cost .22 rifle and the first hit will list 4 under $200 and 6 under $150. I guess because it is a publication of the NRA is why you didn’t like the link and 86’d my comment. Average Prices Ruger 10/22 Carbine ($200) LSI Howa Escort Rimfire Trainer ($183) Chiappa Little Badger ($165) Remington Model 597 ($160) Under $150. Average prices.

Ironic wording…. “Affordable .22lr cartridge” in an unaffordable rifle (3 out of 4), yeah, that makes sense.
