Thread: Can we talk about the CZ 527 carbine?

  1. #61
    My Buddy has one in 7.62x39 that his daughter uses for deer and even elk.

    He has worked up a hot 150 grain SP load that is hits just as hard as the best 30-30 loads.

    He says that unlike a 30-30 lever gun, it's very accurate out to about 250 yards. You get about another 75-100 yards of range with the bolt action. He has it set up with a fixed 6x scope, but he says the thing is a blast to shoot with cheap steel case ammo and iron sights when it's not hunting season.

    Two things:
    1) CZ explicitly says that you can single load rounds by dropping them on the magazine, then closing the bolt on them. Despite it being a controlled feed rifle, the extractor is machined with a bevel that allows it to snap over the round. But when I try it, holy f&ck do I have to crank that bolt down to get it to lock. ONly had one type of ammo (Wolf), so not sure if it is the hard rim or if the bolt needs to be "broken in"

    2) I have yet to find a buttstock mag pouch. Does anybody have suggestions for a good buttstock loop holder for individual rounds (assuming issue #1 resolves itself)?
    Strike Hard Gear makes a truly excellent buttstock dual magazine pouch; it's marketed as a Moisin Nagant stripper clip holder, but it fits the CZ 527 magazines perfectly. I got mine in coyote. One caveat: to avoid scratching the buttstock's wood, have a strip of leather or suede sewn underneath the eyelets.

    Iíbe used the shotgun version of these. Work fine for my casual use. The neoprene doesnít slip like the elastic sleeve I first tried. Donít know how they would stand up to hard use.

    Stumbled across this guy who does short magazine conversions and makes it look a lot better.

    Quick update to this thread: Recently upgraded my sling to a Boonie Packer Safari Sling for enhanced carry options while hunting.

    Best, Jon

    What is the group think on the suppressor threaded 16.5 inch barrel in 6.5 Grendel? Iím looking for a hunting gun 400 yards and in and this seems more turn key then buying a tikka or model 700 and having it chopped and threaded. I have no experience with cz rifles but this thread has piqued my interest.
