Default The Stylish new CZ 457

I've been eyeballing these things for a couple of months, now that the local shops have got a couple in stock. I applaud the use of the 455 barrels and magazines, those items are well-proven now.
So far, despite CZ switching the safety around to accommodate the hard-headed folks who couldn't figure out the old safeties, and shortening the bolt lift, the new rifle just doesn't flip my switches. Like a Remington 700, there's just something about it I do not like.
The slot in the receiver reminds me of the cheaper Savage rimfires, which I'm not especially fond of, either. Slabsiding the receiver did nothing for me, I liked the old-school traditional way CZ did on the BRNO and 452 rifles, that they carried over to the 455.
Call me a hidebound old reprobate, but I just can't get warmed up to the new guns. CZ makes some nice toys, but in a race to build them cheaper and easier, along with the "stylish" new stocks and new finish, just ain't floatin' my boat.
A nice young man tried very, very hard to sell me a new 457 MTR Varmint, but those are the exact opposite of my tastes. I like sporter rifles and don't much care for the heavier rifles that I'll never carry in the squirrel woods. For that purpose, the older 455s are better, and the 452s perhaps a bit better than the 455s.
As always, your tastes may vary, but as for me, I'll skip the new rifles and keep using my "older", more traditional guns.
More than ready for the Anti-Hillary team to win it all.
