My Favorite Little Bolt Gun

tugboat12 ·
While these rifles have been around for awhile, I have only had mine for a year or two... The CZ 527 Carbine in 7.62x39mm *If you don't like reading, there is a link to a video review at the bottom* I have spent most my time shooting ARs and Glocks and haven't gone far into the bolt action world, but this rifle is a lot of fun. It offers a light, compact, reliable package and, it is cheap to shoot. Because the barrel is CIP specced, it is made for .311 diameter bullets, meaning it shoots...

I've had my eye on one of those for a while now, looks like a lot of fun.

REDRUM007 - In my opinion... ...worth picking up. It is just a fun rifle to shoot and with all the surplus ammo out there, it is cheap (relative term) to shoot.

We have almost the exact same set up but man, your wood is so much nicer than mine. Awesome little rifles though, aren't they? Set trigger is great as well.

I've wanted one for a while. For the same reason I want a Barret M82 and a .30 carbine Blackhawk, just because I can. They seem like fun little rifles. I think I will get the youth model so the girls can shoot it in a few years. Thing would be cool cut and threaded with a can. Is it possible to mount a rear peep?

Ya, the stocks you get are like the lottery. Some are really plain and others are amazing tiger-stripe wood grains. I'm looking at probably replacing the stock since I want to put some flush cups on it. I can't stand traditional sling mounts. They are completely worthless....

I've had one since shortly after they came out. Shooting one-handed I needed something light & short - this was it. I mounted a Leupold 2x7x32 on it & it is minute of deer out to 100 yards. The set trigger is scary light on mine. Pretty much exhale & think about pulling the trigger. The only issue I have run into is that a lot of American 7.62x39 ammo won't reliably fire. 100% reliable with Wolf, Tula, Golden Tiger, but the only reliable American ammo I found was Remington.

Yes, Skinner sights makes a rear receiver sight, but you have to drill and tap for it.

Those sights look pretty sweet. Of course it is a little late, about 3-4" too late for my rifle... I like to be able to throw a can on it though.

That is a great looking stock. The Wolf 154 gr soft points shoot very well in mine to the point that I haven't tried anything else or handloads. I like how compact and light these little carbines are , they are almost holster size.

CZ is like the dirty little secret of the firearms world I think. All I hear is good things about their pistols from guys like Mike Pannone, the CZ 455 Varmint in .22LR I have is actually kind of boring to shoot because of how accurate (and quiet with the Sparrow) it is. The Scorpion in 9mm was a freaking blast at Battlefield Vegas and they, correctly I think, called it the Modern MP-5... the CZ Upland Ultralight over/under shotgun I have in 12 gauge is excellent... CZ is awesome! Yet...

I've seen those. My concern is in the forearm. I am not sure how strong it will be up front with the wood. Something like the MLOK Paraclip with two anchors might be the ticket up front and then one of those in the back maybe.

Wait till the CZ 806 Bren II starts hitting the US next year. I predict they will sell like hotcakes. It is an improvement over the 805 model and can be converted from 5.56mm to 7.62x39mm fairly easily. The ambi controls are very similar to an M4. It has a non-reciprocating charging handle that can be swapped from side to side. There is all sorts of goodness embodied in that carbine. CZ is one of the world's finest gunmakers and I'm glad to see them get more recognition.

Thank you very much for the heads up. I have a 9mm CZ Scorpion EVO 1, waiting on a SBR stamp and an approved Form 4 for the SilencerCo Omega 9K can. It's already a blast to shoot as a pistol, and will be even more fun as a suppressed SBR. I just need those two stamps, they should be here by Christmas. A Bren 806 Version II running cheap Russian 7.62x39 ammo would be a huge amount of fun to SBR as well. I'd want a pretty good can on it, but probably a Ti one that would not seriously mess up...

Does the Bren 806 II in 7.62x39mm use standard AK mags, or something proprietary? They look more like AK mags than the god awful AR style 7.62 mags, but the magwell doesn't look like it would take an AK mag.

Thought this might be an interesting option to the CZ527. Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc.

In response to customer feedback, Ruger has combined the power of the classic 7.62×39 cartridge with the compact, bolt-action platform of the Ranch model. Thirty years after the introduction of the Mini Thirty, its cartridge and magazine have found a new home. The magazine...

It doesn't appear to be an AK style mag: and given the design of the mag well (to be compatible with 5.56mm AR mags with the insertion of a magazine spacer/adapter and changing out the bolt and barrel) I don't think it can be.

Sorry, I missed this. Tapdancing around NDA, I had a certain relationship with AIA. The 7.62x39mm AIA that were exported to the USA via the intended distributor were not meant for release to the public. Safe, yes. Functional...sorta. The OK ones pop up for sale here https://www.usedguns.com.au/ & other sites regularly. Given the larcenous exchange rate, you might even find them reasonably priced. Export not a major issue from this end & I can put you through to someone who routinely...

This is the best video on the new CZ 806 Bren II. You don't need to understand Czech to see what a thoughtful design it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvo-HpD7dJo There are other videos out there but this one has close-up views and you can stop and start the film as he disassembles it. The 5.56mm magazine well comes with an insert/spacer that is easily removed to make way for the 7.62x39mm magazine. You then swap the barrel and bolt and voila! you're good to go with the Ruskie caliber.

Hey, that sounds really cool. Would you care to expand on: "...want to increase from a 1-4 to a 1-6 LPVO and also away from a BDC style reticle to something with better subtensions for accuracy at distance. " Reason for the increase in magnification? Better definition/recognition of target or do you think the 4x was limiting you in shot placement? Ideas on recticles? Thanks!

I am using a Steiner P4xi. Good scope. Kyle was running the Razor 1-10. It's nice for sure but I think that magnification is a little much. It think the course could really be titles recce carbine. I take more of a general fighting gun approach so 10x on a FFP scope isn't super ideal for that. I also don't care much for the reticle in the 1-10 (based off my use). I am not super in love with the illumination on the Kahles. I really like a red dot-like brightness. I am shopping for Razor HD...

If I were on the east coast I would most certainly sign up for some of these classes with him. scoped carbine has been on my wish list for awhile. What scope were you using? Do you think think you’d jump up to something like the new Vortex 1-10? Or Kahles 1-8?

Huh, my understanding was that the Kahles were daylight bright. I had to sell my Razor recently which sucked, because if you can handle the weight penalty they're great. And I imagine that second hand prices will go down now that they've introduced the 1-10

Reticle first. BDC has a lot of guess work and inconsistency built in. It might be ok for e type or b/c zone plates but for smaller targets I was guessing a lot. I mean, it was nice to sit there and play with it and figure out too low, too high and close enough there’s a lot of slop there. Something with more subtensions would suit precision as distance better obviously. On the magnification thing, yeah just being able to see smaller targets at distance is worth it. I also shoot 2 gun and 4x...
