Thread: brno zkw 465 22 hornet stock question

    brno zkw 465 22 hornet stock question

    Brno zkw 465.

    Hi all, I have the above rifle in 22 hornet, I am very pleased with it and shoots really well with 35g v max, 40g vmax and 40gr sierra hp. The only issue I've got is the stock is a fraction too small and would love a thumbhole for it. Obviously this is an old rifle but i was wondering wether a cz 527 stock will fit it with a bit of tinkering? I believe that this rifle is the fore runner for the 527 hence the question.

    If anyone has got a picture of a 527 action or a picture of the action void in the stock I would love to have a look and see if mine will fit. The current stock on it has been redone by the previous owner and pillars have been added, it's also the double trigger version which makes the trigger a joy to use.

    I would value your inputs.

    Cheers
    Ben

    I too have the same model 22 hornet.
    I cant help you with your question about the 527 stock being sutable. However have you checked out Boyds Gunstock Ind. They may list one.
    Maybe Muir would know?

    Multiman, I ve looked at boyds and they dont list anything for the brno only 2 mauser types dont know if they'd fit. Would make my rifle superb as I do like a thumbhole.

    Having seen both rifles side by side I would say it isn't going to be an easy swap.
    On the up side it is going to be remove wood and not try and fill gaps in.

    give joe west rifle stocks a bell.

    http://joewestriflestocks.com/

    he is on ukvarminting forums as "dorg" I believe .

    im sure he could knock summit up to your spec and all he requires is your stock for a few days to do it....
    I haven't used him but always very helpful when ive read his posts on other forum and guys seem happy with work

    I looked up Boyds and they list some for the CZ. May Joe west would be the esier option. Keep us posted

    Will do mate, obviously boyds would be the cheaper option but I don't mind paying for good British made gear.
    As I said hes going to be at the midland so I will definitely be having a chat.
    Cheers

    Ben, in what areas do you feel the stock is too small? in addition, would you consider rebuilding the thumb fluting to give you the same effect as a thumbhole (or close to)?

    just curious as I regularly do work on clients stocks to alter fit, and would be curious where/how you feel yours is not quite adequate.

    best wishes

    Peter
