As fans of the CZ-452 rimfire series know, the rifle cocks upon raising the bolt handle. With one of my 452's however, a tiny amount of rearward bolt movement must occur before the sear and trigger fully engage. This is confirmed by an audible click as well as being visually observable with the action removed from the stock. (With both of my other 452's, the sear and trigger engage at the instant the bolt is raised.) Is this cause for alarm? I've considered sending it to CZ for a look though I don't want to spin my wheels if it within specifications. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
Bolt raised - no trigger/sear engagement.
Proper trigger/sear engagement.
I'm trying to come up with a reason why it would matter and can't....
“So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong, and strike at what is weak.”
All my 452s over the years have all been a little different in terms of sear engagement. The 455s I have, have been more consistent. But I wouldnt worry about it. Its never been a problem for me.

Yeah, me too. I can't say I ever notice on mine and this didn't even spur me to get it out of the safe...
See, that's just it. Over the last ~25 years, I've owned nearly a dozen of these rifles in various rimfire calibers - none of them displayed what I'm describing.
No cause for alarm.
I certainly wouldn't bother to go to expense to adjust it. The rifle works properly it just requires a, as you said, tiny amount of rearward bolt travel to reset. The bolt must travel rearward to pick up the next round.
