Thread: CZ 527 - are they any good

    CZ 527 - are they any good

    I am toying with the idea of a lightweight rilfe for use on Roe / Foxes at close range - most shots are well under 100yds so needs to be accurate enough, but clover leafs at 400 yds are really just academic.

    And then with my Heym SR20 in .243 having it rebarraled with a walther barrel to 7x64 for use on the hill.

    Needs to be left handed.

    Also would probably be moderated, so needs to be short in barrel so it still balances properly - hanging 500 gms on the end of the Heym would make it very combersome and heavy.

    The little CZ 527 looks a nice little rifle, particularly as they are now available left handed. Calibre would be .223 - are they any good??

    The CZ.22 rf are good honest rifles, likewise their big bores.

    Appreciate bedding etc may not be the best, but that's not an issue to me as this be easily rectified. Likewise bolt may a bit rough when new, but again nothing that a bit of polish and elbow greese can't sort out.

    I have had a look at a T3 and whilst know that many love them, bit too plasticy for me.

    I had a CZ 527 right handed with a varmint barrel 25.5". These rifles are a bit stiff at the start, magazine is tough to get in. That all get s better with time. The big plus for the 527 is that tiny mauser action which is just lovely. The almost 26" varmint was the same weight as a remmy sporter.
    So a 527 sporter would be very light and handy.
    Mine had the 1 in 12 twist and shot 55gr. very well. Almost anything I shot through it made it under an inch.
    Very good cheapy rounds for fox and rabbit where the Fed american eagle 50gr hp, rem umc 45gr hp these two grouped 1/4" if I was up to it. Best and most consistent was the sako 55gr sp (I think these are designed for roe).

    I have a 222 in CZ527 American, I like it a lot. It is accurate and not too badly balanced with a T8 sat on the end of it. I shoot anything from 40 to 55 grains in it. I have never taken a Roe with this particular gun but, I would not hesitate to do so.

    My first foxing rifle was a second hand 527. It had been used and abused it looked disgusting with an almost yellow wood stock but it shot as well as any rifle I've ever owned and I have owned a few

    Get onto Micheal Dickenson of Brno guns

    really honest guy, lots of guns, also got some of the old brnos left with a better finish than the cz's (in my opinion) he is also left handed so should be able to find something
