Good news for those looking for a micro-action custom hunting rifle; CZ USA has just
announced they are making available 7.62×39 CZ 527 unbarreled actions to the US
consumer market. From Jerking the Trigger:
CZ USA has announced that they will be making their CZ 527 7.62×39 actions available for purchase separately. This will allow shooters to build their own custom 6.5 Grendel chambered rifle on the proven “micro Mauser” actions. The potential for such an action to be built into a light precision or hunting rifle is off the charts.
As Matt mentioned in the article, the receivers are not available through CZ’s website; if any of our readers are interested, click through the link to Jerking the Trigger for more information.
The 527 is a micro-length (2.26″ OAL) rifle chambered in such cartridges as the .223
Remington and 7.62×39. The action is a true Mauser-style mechanism, complete with
large claw-type extractor on the side. It features CZ’s signature “push forward” set
trigger, which makes for an incredibly light trigger pull.
