Reeds still has one in stock. I just purchased one today. $850.61 out the door. I overpaid because I didn't want to play the waiting game when it comes to CZ guns. Waiting 10-12 months is not worth saving $100. They also have the Savage bolt action chambered in 7.62x39, too. Much much heavier than the CZ 527. The Savage price is $830 before fees and taxes.

Next round could be 12-18 months according to one of the clerks. Try online.

Must be nice sitting on a bench, in an outdoor range, slowly shooting the AK ammos. My ideal weekend activity right there. A few snacks, couple of water bottles, and 300 rounds should last about 3 hours.

Herb Bauer in Fresno had a few of these when I was there a couple weeks ago. No idea about right now but if your fires are still burning you could try there.

OP here. Nothing at Reed's nor Herb Bauer. The search continues and those pesky embers keep flaring up.

That sucks, OP. That's what making owning CZ guns fun. Certain CZ guns are never readily available. People can't just go to a shop and buy it. Gotta do scavenger hunt for them.

ha ha. Seems like finding a CZ527 in the russian caliber is akin to getting a date with a cheerleader in high school - 50 years ago. You gotta get lucky!

by the way, I held both of Reed's 527's before you bought. I chose not to, but my buddy told me I should have bought one on general principle. I did not listen to him.

You are welcome.

I also got interested in these because of the Hickok45 review. Decided to get one as a birthday gift to myself a few years ago. Turner's had one in stock day I went in. Guess I got really lucky?

Though maybe not. I haven't been shooting it for a while because the stock cracked. Almost like a large chip is breaking off behind right behind the rear of the action. I'm not sure what to do? Replacement? Call CZ? Just glue it back on with wood glue?

repair. you can find links how to do it. search google.

#1 thing, though im surprised the 527 needs it, is to relieve the back of the tang. I thought my 550 just had a crappy inlet, but it was that way by design. Not so good for the heavy recoiling safari cals to let that tang slam back into the stock.

That, or your rifle is supposed to be tight and the recoil lug was poorly bedded. Also fixable.

So what is the bore diameter on the CZ and the Savage?

When you Nor Cal guys get set up with handloads come out to the Chabot 200 meter silhouette rifle match the 1st Sunday of each month.

Seat the bullets long and pump up the loads for single loading (150 grain SP +28.5 grains of AA2230, 4895, 748, or 29 grains Accurate 2520) if you have thick brass back off volume to bas of neck/shoulder, don't compress.

Haha. I had the same mindset as you did. I came to do a PPT sale and held the CZ 527, but decided not to buy it until the next day after seeing it out of stock on many online stores. The ones that do have it instock are selling for $700 -850 not including shipping.

I believe CZ gives you 5-year limited warranty on their product. Go to their online store and send them an email.

Just picked mine up yesterday, but probably won't shoot it for at least a couple weeks.

ok, lots of folks picking these up. Who's gonna man up first (here with this local group) and send their action off for a Grendel barrel or other round based on the same case head diameter?

Can you turn a screw driver?

How did the hipster burn the roof of his mouth? He ate the pizza before it was cool.

My wife's opinion does very on that depending on what I am working on.

Gunwise I would rather a smith do the work. Maybe not outside my ability, but way outside my comfort zone. Armorer work sure, gunsmith work ehhheheh , probably not.

I know a better joke than that, but you probably wouldn't understand it

well, if you can turn a screw driver and know how to use sandpaper, as well as "armorer's" work, then you can build a bolt action rifle given a fitted and chambered barrel with an action that already fits a stock. especially if its a scope only rifle.

Actually, less. You send it to pack nor with contour notes "match new contour to existing barrel contour" and they take care of everything. You turn TWO screws to pull the action and your work is done. send off for blue. if you don't wanna blue it.

total out-the-door cost: $630 + cost to blue. ~$650 total if done in stainless steel. All supermatch of course

Anyways, randall is near you and if you provide him the barreled action he can bang out the rest (assembly) in an afternoon. I'm sure of it.

Finally got to bring out the CZ 527 7.62x39 to the 100 yard range. This little beast is crazy fun to shoot, and he kicks like a 308 mule. Shoulder got little sore after 120 rounds. I'm a first time rifle shooter and still got 1.5-2" moa. Set trigger is crazy accurate.

Anyone except Lawboy shoot theirs out beyond 100 yards at silhouettes with jacketed or cast?

200 meter silhouette at Chabot gun club 1st Sunday each month.

200-500 meter silhouette 1st Sat each month at Swiss Rifle Club Gonzales, ca.

200-500 meter silhouette at Sac Valley 3rd Sat. each month.

Default Long range with the CZ 527 in 7.63 x 39

I shot out to 600 yards using .308 Amax boat-tail bullets at chest-sized metallic targets in the national forest. The bullets arrived but with little energy left.

One thing I noticed was that the tapered case seemed to cause misfires when I started to use heavy flat-point cast bullets. It might have been because the smallish shoulder area did not offer enough head space resistance against the inertia generated when the firing pin struck the back of the heavy cartridge.

I often wished that the cartridge would hold just a little more powder as in a Ackley improved cartridge.

Overall, the CZ carbine in the 7.62 x 39 is a great combination.
