CZ-USA Polls Shooters on New Chambering for Model 527

Czech arms-maker CZ produces a popular range of accurate, yet affordable rimfire and centerfire rifles. The CZ 452, in various versions, is one of the best rimfire bolt-actions under $400.00 retail. The 22LR version is favored by many club-level silhouette shooters, and is an excellent youth rifle. Model 452s chambered in 17 Mach 2 or 17 HMR also make excellent varminters. Typical model 452 “Street Price” is about $375.00.

Model 527 — Mini-Mauser Action Ideal for .223-sized Cartridges
For centerfire shooters, CZ’s Model 527 has won more awards in the “light rifle” category in Europe than any other rifle…ever. Designed to fit small-base calibers perfectly, the CZ 527 is a true micro-length Mauser style action, with detachable magazine, hammer forged barrel and single set trigger. CZ offers various versions of the 527 chambered in .17 Remington, .221 Fireball, .22 Hornet, .222 Remington, .223 Remington, and .204 Ruger.

Vote for Your Choice!

CZ-USA is now conducting a poll, asking website visitors to help choose a new chambering for the Model 527. It looks like CZ has done its homework. We were surprised to see that the “candidates” include popular wildcat cartridges like the 20 VarTarg and 20 Tactical, plus the excellent 6.5 Grendel. Most large manufacturers don’t even know these chamberings exist, much less consider offering them. We wish CZ-USA would also consider the .223 Rem necked down to 20 caliber (aka the “20 Practical”). It does everything the 20 Tactical does, with no special dies needed.
