This Rifle is the great quality Craftsmanship that is expected from the Czechs. This rifle is very well made and high quality.
The action is smooth and truly is a Mauser action that is scaled down.
The fiber optic sights are excellent and capable of less than one inch groups right out of the box with a great sight picture.
The stock has very good checkering to get a firm grip with very nice looking wood along with a rubber buttpad that really grips to your shoulder and keeps the rifle in place.
The set trigger has to be the best feature on this rifle with it being able to be set to about 1 pound of pull after being pushed forward. Grouping your shots is very easy with the set trigger. The trigger without being set is also very good and crisp.
This rifle will shoot any 7.62x39 that is put into the sturdy steel magazine. I shot East German Training ammo, Tula, Wolf, Brown bear Subsonic and Monarch with not issues at all.
The only downside to this rifle is the scope rings are expensive and not the traditional American scope rings. That is the only downside.
If you want a lighweight Rifle that is very cheap to shoot that still has good power behind it to hunt medium sized game with, target shoot, and plink around this Rifle is a phenomenal for all those purposes. This rifle also makes a great companion to your AK47.
Highly recommended Rifle.

100% satisfied, the CZ quality I've come to expect on this 527 carbine in 7.62x39mm.

Beautiful rifle. Beautifully made. Smooth, handy, very nice shooter. Unfortunately the only way to mount a scope on it is with the proprietary CZ Steel rings which weigh as much as the rifle itself. Given the short range limitations of the .762 x 39 round, you are probably better off using the excellent iron sights.

All I can say is this CZ 527 Carbine is an excellent bolt action rifle in 7.62x39 caliber. The workmanship is of superb quality and the Turkish walnut stock is beautiful. The rifle is light and has great features like a short bolt action, adjustable fiber optic front sight, adjustable and set trigger. The accuracy is right on and groups easily. It is also designed to shoot steel cased ammo which makes it economical as well. As always, Buds delivered with fast shipping and tracking updates even during the busy holiday season.

I love this little gun. The sights leave much to be desired but with an LPVO it is supremely useful. CZ's fully adjustable single set trigger is awesome! The stock is kind of ugly and the metal finish was functional but not perfect.

Very well made lite handy rifle. The action will get smoother over time. It is a little sticky out of the box. Only con is it does not come with scope rings.

Sweet shooter but I hate that it has a fluted barrel...I like classic guns with one price barrels and this is a modern barrel and just not made like they used to be

This is a quality product. Let's face it, most of us are not going to be taking shots past 200 yards, so who cares if its effective range is limited to that distance? My rifle shoots 1 MOA groups with the Hornady 123 grain SST bullets, and even the really cheap stuff shoots about 1.5 MOA. I've recently begun reloading with the Barnes TSX, 123-grain copper bullets, and they also give me 1-inch groups. And best of all, I can practice for 25-cents a shot with the cheap stuff.

The Craftsmanship and Quality of this rifle is superb and the accuracy is better than I will ever be. I only shot a few hundred times and I already want to buy another one. Get one or two you won't regret it. Buds is a great choice to buy from.
