Hands On With the CZ 527 Carbine Rustic

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 17:30

The action is a miniaturized Mauser action, something CZ does exceedingly well. There are a lot of Mauser’s in a huge variety of calibers floating the Earth, and last I heard they tend to work. The “micro action” is based on a 223 length, though it is available in several calibers. My test sample of the CZ 527 Carbine Rustic is chambered in 7.62x39, and also available in 223.

How To Work Out Your DOPE: Developing Your Ballistic Data

Thu, 04/12/2018 - 09:22
