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...

CZ-P07

86Bear ·
I would like to get some feedback from those of you that are currently running a P-07, or have experience with one. I am a fan of the double/single, hammer fired pistols and have read quite a bit of good stuff about these pistols on-line. My primary purpose is to put a light on it and use it as a bedside home defense option and range gun. I have nothing against the Glock, other than grip angle and have owned a couple. Still have an RTF2 G23, just can’t put a light on it without worrying...

After attending Mike Pannone's covert carry class, 2013/2014 time frame, I bought one. Mike was kind enough to allow students to try the various CZ pistols he had on hand. I have about 5000 rounds thru the pistol, various HP and ball rounds with zero malfunctions. I switch between my Glock 19 and the CZ. I carry in a JM kydex appendix rig identical to the holster that Mike uses. The gun is a laser beam. About the only negative thing I can think of is the price of magazines. Last bought two...

My wife has the P07 while I have the P09. We got it used in the Cabela's bargain cave on Black Friday for $362 otd. I'm not sure if we have over 1k through it without looking at my books. I've had a few malfunctions with it, and one or two REALLY weird ones (spent brass falling back into the gun, primer side towards chamber). These were usually when the gun was pretty filthy, give it a cleanin' and it keeps on tickin'. I intend to get some stuff from Cajun Gun Works once I'm done with Mr.

I have three P07's and a P09 that have been worked over by both Boresight Solutions and Cajun Gun Works. My primary off-duty carry pistol is a P07. I have run it through VTAC (1300 rounds), Mike Pannone (800 rounds) and Reston Group (400 rounds) classes with no malfunctions. I like having the hammer for IWB carry on the reholster. If you browse the various forums, you can usually pick up spare mags in the sub $30 range. Safariland has duty holsters for both, although I had to special order...

The triggers can be better, but I love the P09 for its combat pistol size and “it goes to 11” magazine capacity.

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. (NYSE: RGR) is excited to introduce the Ruger American Rifle Ranch model, now chambered in 7.62×39 and fed by the Mini Thirty magazine. 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.

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.

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...

9mm/5.56 Compact Truck Gun Options

Not to rehash the previous thread, but it seemed to have run it's course, and in a different direction. So I've been planning on putting a dedicated "truck" gun in my POV so I can have something more significant than my pistol. I've been looking at many factors while looking at options. Many of the factors are at odds with each other, so I'm aware that whatever I end up with will be a compromise. Caliber- I would like to stay in 9mm or 5.56 because that's what I have on hand at any given...

10.3"/10.5"/11.5" barrelled AR15 pistol with Law Tactical folder and SB Tactical buffer tube with your choice of the SB Tactical braces (my choice is the SOB). Don't bother messing around with barrels shorter that 10.x", or funky buffer tubes, it usually ends in tears. The package folded is fairly compact and very quick to deploy, but quite frankly, if the occasion warrants pulling it out, it doesn't matter that it's a bit longer than a 9mm carbine. Having a pistol AR15 also allows you to...

I'll throw something out there. I saw that you prefer 5.56 and/or 9mm, and an 5.56 AR pistol is good choice for what you are looking to do. However, the .300 Blackout, with a 9"+/- barrel, MAY be a better choice. The .300 BO is better performing out of the shorter barrels. BCM makes a beautiful .300 upper just for this, which I own. I also built out a 9mm AR pistol (stay away from Lone Wolf if at all possible. Quarter circle 10 is my current preferred for 9mm AR stuff). The wife has a G17...

While I have a ton of ARs, I solved this problem by putting a KelTec Sub2000 Gen 2 G17 in the truck. It folds, so little space taken up, and I have a flashlight mounted. Stuck several OEM Glock 33 round mags in the truck, too. Running a simple single point sling. Why? Pros: Cheap gun, basically disposable to me. Rugged, and super simple. Runs well with minimal lube, has been stupidly reliable. Super compact and lightweight, so easy to carry places while out, simply slide in a laptop...

and that's a good alternative. Except for one thing. In a lot of states, you can NOT transport a Rifle (just because it SHOOTS a pistol round, doesn't mean it's not a rifle), that is loaded and/or easily accessible by the driver (stops the driving poaching kind of thing). The idea of the AR pistol is, well it's a PISTOL and covered by most states Concealed Carry permits.

You mirrored my thoughts and my choice. I picked up a Sub 2000 2nd Gen, in green, Glock 17, for $405. I got a used G17 3rd Gen for $250 or $275. It was well used. I ground off the finger grooves and stippled it myself. The folded Sub 2000, G17, and a warbelt with holster and mag pouches fit in the storage space behind my back seat (Tacoma).

Good idea on a cheap used full-sized Glock...I have plenty of access to those locally. RE: AR pistols, I understand the advantages as pertaining to transporting.

I’ve looked at the Sub 2000 but that was back before the Gen 2 was out. I heard that Magnum Research has bought Kel-Tec. Is that true and can we expect better quality in Kel-Tec products because of that?

No idea on Magnum Research buying KelTec, but if they did, I would NOT expect to see quality improve. It could even stand to worsen if they try to bump up availability. I do feel the Gen2 is magnitudes better than the Gen1. I recommend it without hesitation. Hell, it's a $450-ish folding rifle that takes Glock mags. Why not buy one? It's cheaper than a new Glock for most buyers. I got mine for $425, IIRC, locally.

The Gen 1 Sub2K needs a lot to make it more functional. I bought mine well before the Gen 2, and primarily as a range toy until I become confident/comfortable about its basic reliability. I ended up replacing the trigger, incorporating picatinny rails for a decent (but not Aimpoint) red dot, folding sights, sling attachment, weapon light, buttstock cover, etc. It now has much better ergonomics and 'shootability'. The one thing I never had to work on was basic reliability. This is hit or miss...

7.62x39mm looses very little performance out of a short barrel vs the standard 16". I know you said you prefer 5.56 or 9mm, but AK pistols are fairly cheap (not Galil ACE) and with an arm brace pretty handy. Mags are cheap still, and so is ammo. The con is learning a new system and sights.
