Rifles CZ 557 represent the most recent generation of legendary hunting firearms with Mauser system, which Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod has been manufacturing since the mid of 1960’s. Combination of such long tradition and broad experience with the most recent design and production processes led to creation of a new series of hunting and sporting rifles offering excellent utility parameters. The well proven bolt on these rifles has been provided with a short extractor and a spring-loaded ejector. The forged barrel length is 520 mm only, with significant shooting accuracy thanks to new technology implemented in receiver manufacturing. The oiled stock of original shape offers great comfort and reliable aiming with mechanical sights and a riflescope. Positive characteristics of rifle series CZ 557 include the noiseless manual safety, smooth bolt operation, sights highlighted with optical fibre and the new trigger mechanism with options to adjust the travel, pull and drop.
The company was founded in 1936 starting with production of a combined assortment of military and civilian firearms. The first products were anti-aircraft machine guns, military pistols and smallbore rifles. The current line of Ceska zbrojovka products includes sporting and hunting firearms as well as duty weapons for armed forces, police and other armed units. Common features of all firearms manufactured by Ceska zbrojovka are their high quality standard, long-term reliability and accuracy.
Ceska zbrojovka is today rated as one of the world’s biggest producers of firearms. More than 80 per cent of its production is exported to over one hundred countries worldwide. The first-rate properties and performance of its firearms give Ceska zbrojovka its excellent reputation, in both domestic and international markets.
