It looks like the ring has moved out of its small recess so it's sitting proud and catching the front edge of the rear port section of the action,
Not had a cz527 in my hands for some years and at a lose as to suggest you do to sort this,

no no no.
phenomenal this has happened in the first place, even lingering on unbelievable!
pull the bolt out as far as possible, hold it steady, put a thin screwdriver in between the claw and the part that slots into the recess in the front of the bolt and lift it out so it can slip out of the recess from the bolt body, then knock the exctractor claw forwards with 'something' until it pops off, turn the extractor collar to face 12 o'clock and pull the extractor claw out backwards, then reposition the collar to 3 o'clock and pull out with the bolt. then re-fit.
you will never get the extractor collar back into place as is, no chance. only other option is to cut the extractor collar that's slipped out and replace it. I have a replacement extractor collar, so if you need to go that far, fret no brother.

Hi, I have a cz 527 in .223, if you need to compare the bolt with yours, before deciding which way to go.
Congratulations Norrie that's a first for me also. I can't possibly think how you managed to do what I would have thought that would have been the impossible. I think Pietasventores is definitely on the right lines but if worst comes to worst you may have to sacrifice the C clip by cutting it off which won't be the end of the world as he has already kindly offered you a replacement.
It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
save yourself some ballache
order a new clip from GMK (£13 IIRC) (or get the one from PV above)
sacrifice that one to get the bolt out
Unless you can release the front of the extractor blade you will not be able to slide it forward to allow the collar (your protruding bit) to engage the inside rear edge of the blade where that clip is meant to be
I am not sure the front edge of the blade/claw has enough room in its current position to allow it to be removed as is
certainly doesn't in the BRNO Md2 sister action (and I know as I broke the cast piece that CZ ungraded to the bent piece you have a problem with!
you are lucky these are cheap and easy! mine wasnt!
Hi Guys, Thanks for the advice, VERY much appreciated...I'm literally just in from work, so missed most of your comments. I took the gun into Bushwear this morning ( working in Stirling anyway) and left it with them, Steve is going to look at it over the weekend, he thinks I broke the other end of the clip for it to be sitting where it is...I'll let you know how it goes... Thank god i've still got the 243...
There are some proper gents on this forum, and ALL who posted advice for me can be included in that...
