CZ USA 457 Varmint MTR 22 LR 20" Barrel 02345
Taking our heavy-barreled rimfire to the next level, the 457 Match Target Rifle gets a bit more attention than the average 457 Varmint. Its Match chamber is cut to the tightest specification that CIP will allow, meaning it will perform impressively well with top-tier ammo. The MTR’s Turkish walnut stock is de- signed with ergonomics in mind, and its vertical grip has a comfortable palm swell and laser stippling for texture. A large, flat forend has dual QD studs for running a bipod and a sling, and wrap-around stippling gives much more grip for the forward hand.
If we were to pick one thing that our previous rimfire platforms were lacking, it was an American-style push-to-fire safety — something Hunter’s Education instructors and 4-H shooting coaches have begged us to incorporate for years. Though that was the most obvious change, we also took the opportunity to tweak a load of small things at the same time. In addition to the receiver-mounted, push-to-fire safety, we chopped almost an inch of length from the action and slab-sided it to reduce its footprint and weight. The stamped bottom metal of the 455 is gone, swapped for a classy two-piece interlocking system. To make scope fitment easier, we 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. With the exact same swappable barrel system as the 455 and the same reliable polymer magazine system, the 457 is without a doubt the best rimfire platform we’ve ever fielded.

My review is going to be mostly about the customer service from Gunprime... However, I don't need to brag about the CZ 457 Varmint MTR (Match Target Rifle). Those in the know, or those that are just researching, already know what they are looking for. I've owned it (just barely a month now) and it is doing great with good quality ammo.
My real review is about the great customer service I received...
I found out about Gunprime,com from a rimfire forum I am a member of. So, I checked their website and the website said they had 4 ("four") CZ 457 Varmint MTR's in stock. I had been searching for this model for a while and it was always out of stock everywhere. So, I called the customer service number and spoke to a gentleman that checked and explained that he didn't know why the website said it was in stock. I thanked him and said I thought there had been a mistake.
Literally about 10 mins later, my cell phone rings and I answer, and it is the gentleman I spoke to at Gunprime calling me back to say he had been able to allocate one for me and the purchase was made. Gunprime was great with email notifications about the purchase and shipped it to my desired FFL dealer. It even arrived two days early.
I forget the gentleman's name that I spoke to, but I owe him a huge THANK YOU!
