CZ 455 JAGUAR
Jaguar – a resonant name hiding yet another addition to the fast growing family of CZ 455 modular rimfire rifles, modern and commercially very successful successors of the legendary CZ 452 ZKM series. The design of this newcomer is based on the fact that it is a hunting rifle for longer distances. Česká zbrojovka Uherský Brod has also decided to further emphasize the dramatic name by subtle, yet impressive decorations. The result is one of the most elegant mass-produced rimfire rifles of recent years.
The CZ 455 Jaguar model is designed for hunters, foresters and general shooters who intend to use the widely available and economical 22 LR cartridge for hunting or target shooting at longer distances, which usually means more than 50 m. For this purpose, the rifle is equipped with an extra-long 726 mm barrel with a 16 inch six groove bore.
The longer barrel basically offers two main advantages: firstly, a slightly higher energy of the bullet, and secondly – and more importantly – better stability when shooting at longer distances. These are very important factors if you intend to use the 22 LR calibre rifle, for example, for varmint control.
Shooting at a longer distance was taken into account also when designing the beech stock. Its basic shape is taken from the CZ 455 Standard model (barrel length 525 mm), however, for the first time regarding this series, the CZ 455 Jaguar also has a cheek piece. With it, the already high user comfort of the current CZ rimfire rifles rises significantly, aiming is faster and more reliable, and ultimately, all this has a positive effect on accuracy.
