    I'd be interested to hear more about the casting and your results. I have a 17 hornet american that loves berger 25 grain so I'm always on the hunt for them. Casting sure would make shooting it a lot more fun.

    I have one of these bolt handles from glades armory, it works quite well.

    Just a suggestion for other 527 enthusiasts.

    Numrich use to sell (may still) the newer CZ 527 bolt handles with the thinner bolt handle base that allows lower scope mounting for around $25. The Glades Armory have the advantage of being a bit longer with more leverage as well as allowing lower scope mounting.

    Old thread, but forum tells me I havenít logged in since January 2021. I know Iíve visited, did not realize it had been so long since posting. I have the CZ 527 in 7.62x39. The set rigger is incredible, but the magazine is horrible. Getting more than 3 rounds in the magazine is very difficult and I donít like the way the magazine sticks below the stock like it does. Very accurate rifle and a blast to shoot. Never put a scope on it. Didnít need one with that light set trigger.

    wingspan,

    I am a big fan of appeture sights and this would be a look see if I was fortunate enough to have a 7.62 x 39 in a CZ:

    Just friendly food for thought

    Looks interesting, but I prefer buckhorn sights, but I can use either. I put a peep sight on my 10/22 and took it off cause I hated it. I have aperture sights on a lot of rifles and leave them alone, as I said a sentence ago, I can use either. I just have a preference for buckhorn sights.

    I have a carbine in 7.62x39. When they 1st came out I 1st saw one at Gander Mountain and stopped by each day after work to hold it for a couple weeks. I waited about another year before ordering one for myself. I love everything about it except the stupid magazine hanging out right where your hand needs to be to carry it. You can swap out the bottom metal and magazine parts for every other chambering except the 7.62x39 to end up with a flush magazine unless things have changed since I last looked. In spite of that negative, I love the little rifle. It's so light and handy that it feels like carrying a BB gun yet it will shoot a 150 grain NOE bullet at 2,070 ft/sec which makes it an acceptable 200 yards or less deer rifle. I've yet to kill a deer using cast with it but hope to next year. I wouldn't even consider selling it for 5X what I paid for it. I don't understand why CZ discontinued such a popular rifle. Don't understand a lot of things about current gun companies. They seem to want to sell weird looking junk only. I go to gun shops and look around and often find myself thinking the unlikely thought that there's not much of anything they have that I would take home even if it were free. I never imagined that would be possible say 30 years ago.

    Really sad, they were the only new rifles I have been interested in in decades. We have four in 17 HH, 22 Hornet, 204. They are all at or under half minute rifles.

    Love my 527 in .22 Hornet. Wish I had picked up one in 762x39 before they were discontinued. The mag sticking out irritates me just a little but I’m getting used to it.

    I hope that CZ saved the tooling to be able to resume building the 527 series and that they come to their senses and actually build them once again.

    The claim is that the machines and tooling were wore out. The new design is for ease of manufacture with the new CNC machines.

    I have a Cz 527 heavy 26” barrel with gray laminated stock in 223. Also has set trigger, ( don’t know if they all had that )Have never seen another one. Was the first rifle I purchased, 14 years ago.
    I wonder what that could be worth
