Default CZ 527 Carbine 7.62x39

I came across this carbine on the internet, and I think it will be my next rifle. It should be a great companion carbine to my Arsenal SGL-21 AK variant. My daughter can use it for PA whitetails, and ammo will never be in short supply.

I would really appreciate any information from current owners of the 527 Carbine about accuracy, fit and finish, purchase price, and overall satisfaction with the rifle. Thanks!

Great rifle,bought 1 in the late 90's and always loved it,got 1 to 1 1/2 inch groups at 100 yards using milsurp ammo,then started using some Chinese surp and got Duds on average of 1 in 3 shots, thought I had got bad ammo but found out later that the firings pins in the early ones came with a weak firing pin spring and that is why it had trouble with certain types ammo that had very hard primers!

Default cz527 Carbine

I have one of these little rifles, and I am thoroughly happy with it. I particularly like the compact size -- I think it will make a good brush gun.

I bought this at the friendly LGS/pawn at the height of the ammo shortage. The one round that was consistently available was 7.62x39, and when I saw the CZ up on the wall, it just clicked for me. One of my friends has the same rifle in .223, and I knew he was very impressed with it.

The fit and finish of the rifle is very good. The walnut stock is very nice wood and the gun holds and points well for me. I still have the iron sights mounted, and accuracy is good. I am looking forward to taking it hog and deer hunting.

As others have stated, you would find this to be a well made rifle. The iron sights are exceptional and the cartridge and carbine would surely become a favorite as it has for me. One thing I experienced was the bolt seemed to be a snug fit when closing with a non-brass round which might make one think it was the cartridge but experience has shown that condition remedied with the chambering if a hundred or so rounds. I lucked into a deal and got mine in new condition for $525.

One of these rifles is also on my wish list. Some reports i have read suggested that pulling bullets on milsup ammo and evening out the powder loads improved accuracy. I haven't tried this yet with my sks.

I think I've run into this on some milsurp ammunition that was originally intended for dual use (select fire or infantry firearms). They made the primers harder to stand up to fully automatic bolts whacking them around; prevents firing out of battery.

Glad you got your spring problem resolved. I hear Wolff makes good replacement springs for lots of different makes; never tried one myself.

I think on the CZ website it says the 7.62x39 steel is a favored load for the 527... it was designed to eat those things. With the price of .223 still being a bit on the high side, the 527 is one of the few bolt action options for the 7.62 load. Just wish CZ would sell a standard length barrel version and not just the carbine. A 22 inch barrel would make the rifle a must have...
