CZ 527
« on: March 19, 2021, 06:59:25 PM »
Damn, CZ makes some fine bolt action carbines. The 527 I received is freaking beautiful, lightweight, and chambered for 7.62x39. It took forever to find one that wasn't way over Covid priced, but eventually scored one. Yes, still overpriced, but these days if you want one you have to pay for the privilege. Super happy with it so far. It has fixed sights, but I ordered a Leupold scope and Warne rings for it which should be here soon. Can't wait to get it to the range. It has that crazy "set" trigger, which reduces the standard pull weight of 3.5lbs to a mere 1lb by simply pushing the trigger bow forward into the "set" position. Trigger tuning is amazing. I'll attach a pic that shows all the tuning adjustments.

I'll report back after a range trip.

Oops, forgot to report back.  :main_ohmy:

I've only been to the range twice with this since getting involved in .22 shooting. I have the CZ 457 "At-One" with a 24" barrel. Fun.

Anyway, the CZ 527 did very well. It took those cheap 7.62x39 rounds and returned good groups. That's a bolt action rifle for you. The only disappointment was the Leupold scope. Clear glass, but the reticle is way too fat for my liking. Overall, a beautiful, well crafted, firearm that will stand proud in my collection.

Er, DB, you have a double/single action revolver coming soon. A bolt rifle would expand your horizon, no? That and let me develop that AM2 10mm for you. Yeahbabby.

Nice looking rifle.  If it was over $1000 (and I'm sure it was) then count me out.

Hmm, glad I was wrong.  Not a bad buy then.
