Hey everyone, I’m planning on buy a CZ 452 Bolt Action Rifle and I would like to get a model with a 24” or less barrel length.
Now I really like the walnut stock on the LUX model, but the CZ USA website says it has a barrel length of 26” but I’ve also seen it list on other sites as having a 24” long barrel, the same as on the Training model which I like as well.
So my question is what is the real barrel length on the LUX model, 26” or 24” ?
Thank you all for your time…

Mine is 28 1/2".

The barrel length for both the Lux and Trainer is 24.8 inches. There have been some special runs called “Ultra Lux “ that have barrels at around 28 inches.
I would recommend you Czech out CZ’s website, barrel lengths are listed for the various models.
Edit, I just checked cz-usa.com and it's saying the Lux's have a 28.6 inch barrel. I stand corrected this may be a new change.
In the past the only difference between the two was the Lux was stocked in walnut and the Trainer was stocked in birch.

That’s the problem CZ’s website list the LUX as having a 28” barrel, but from what I’ve read on other sites, only the Ultra LUX should have a 28” barrel.

Must be a mis-print. Only the ultra lux has the 28" barrel. My trainer and lux both have 24" barrels.

CZ 452 American is 22"

If you look at the CZ website, there are several options for the Lux model. The first that comes up is the 28" (actually 28.6"), next in the drop down box is the 24" (actually 24.8").

Thank you all for your help,
I found the list on the CZ USA website and the the standerd LUX does come with a 24" barrel, which is what I will be getting.
Thank you all again.

The scout has an even shorter barrel.
