The CZ 455 varmint laminate thumbhole is ideal for both range shooting and vermin control. The 455 range of rifles are very accurate and a varmint barrel makes the rifle ideal for mid to long range shooting. The thick barrel ensures consist accuracy without any effects caused by barrel temperature fluctuations. The facility to swap barrels has been incorporated in the new design allowing the calibres to be changed inexpensively. A cold hammer forged barrel has been used as well as a receiver made from a single billet of high-quality steel to ensure unbeatable accuracy. The receiver has a 9-11mm dovetail machined onto the top allowing a scope to be mounted securely. The barrelled action has been combined with a laminated thumbhole stock offering the feel of wood but the low maintenance associated with synthetic stocks.
