CZ 455 Thumbhole .17HMR

By Nik Maxwell

I’ve always had a penchant for CZ (and BRNO) rifles. To me they are typical of the classic wood and blued steel rifles I have shot and hunted with since my youth. They exude strength, functionality and a purpose-built design.


The last CZ rifle I had the pleasure to review was a 550 Lux (NZG&H #142) chambered in 6.5x55. It was an absolute dream of a rifle. Finished in blue and wood, sporting a double set trigger and in that proven performer of a cartridge, you can’t really ask for more in classically styled firearm.
