A while back there was a thread, and in it there was some expressed interest in a 2-stage trigger for the CZ 457.

Well... Wait no longer. Bscar (Bill Scaramuzzo) has come through for us! He sent me the pictured trigger a week ago so that I could put it through it's paces.

All I can say is WOW! Bill has done it again! It's every bit as nice of a trigger as the one that he designed and sells for the 455.

The trigger arrived preset at 6 and 12 oz, per my request. The first stage is smooth, and then you hit the 2nd stage wall. There is no mistaking the wall, it is very definite. Then apply a little more pressure and "the glass breaks". The break is very crisp and clean.

One of my biggest complaints with the stock CZ trigger is the trigger blade profile. The cross section is "D" shaped and the front part that my finger engages is smooth and round. It's proved to be a bad combo in matches. Especially with bullet lube on my finger. This trigger is much flatter and I can get a much better and consistent purchase with my finger pad.

Bill is trying to gauge interest, so make sure to let him know via this thread or PM.

All I can say is that I have mine and the stock trigger isn't going back on...EVER! This one got installed on my test rifle. Now I need one for my match rifle!

I forgot to mention how consistent the pull is... I didn't need to average. It was identical on 8 of 8 pulls measured with my cheap wheeler gauge. 👍

User adjustable? Price?
Great questions.. I know that it is adjustable, but I'm not sure of the range of adjustability.

I'd recommend contacting Bill via PM. If he's not here on the hide, I know that you can PM him on Rimfire Central, or you could get hold of him through his website

I have one in my 455 and it is fully adjustable for 1st and second stage weight. Down to 2oz if I remember. Blade is oh so nice. The wall that you feel is so flat and solid.

I shot Bill’s 457 trigger as a Prototype, and like his 455 triggers it is awesome! Bill is a super nice guy and makes a great trigger.

Hands down the best trigger u can find for the CZ, he told me it all started as he Mr.Fly trigger and didn’t like it so he decided to start making his own and I guess when you’re a retired machinist and engineer you can make things happen.

I have to say that I'm a little surprised at the interest in a better trigger for the 457, given how decent the factory one is. I've got three 457s - American, MTR, & VPT, and have been very pleased with all three triggers, once I did the very minimal job of adjusting them. All the same, I have no doubt in Bill's ability to come up with a very fine custom trigger, and even though I like the feel of the OEM trigger blade, I'm sure there are those who prefer something different. I've purchased four of his 25 MOA scope rails for the 457s; he was very quick to ship them, and I wouldn't trade them for anything else I've seen or read about. Now if I can just stay away from anyone with one of these new 2-stage triggers and/or resist the temptation to try the break on one...otherwise, I'm pretty sure I'd be a goner, and wouldn't be happy until I'd replaced all three of the triggers on my rifles...

would these fit a 452 ultra lux?
No Sir, they are engineered for the 457 which has a completely different fire control group from the 452.

The 455 and 452 are a much closer match, but I still don't believe that the 455 trigger would work in a 452. Someone else may have a better answer.

Thank you. The world became a little smaller and darker today....:(
