I think they are going for ergonomics more than looks. the GRS is about the same looking as the one on the CZ only composite. There are others, names slipped me, that are really pricey. They are more for competition shooters like PRS than carrying around in the woods chasing coyotes.

I have had 2 527’s. A varmint and a carbine. Both were the m,ost accurate factory rifles I have ever seen the varmint when I first got it was an honest to goodness .5” for 5 shots rifle. Then for some reason accuracy went away and nothing I could figure out got it back or close to that level. The carbine was 5/8” for 5 shot groups. In the end I got sick of the single stack magazine which makes the gun clunky feeling also the backward safety sucks. The hs precision stock for the varmint was ordered with too short of an LOP by CZ all of them were that way.

I have one of the early varmints, and I prefer the short LOP, and the safety is a complete non issue. The magazines I dont mind a bit, and wish they made a 10rd version.

As for the accuracy...I kind of agree. Mine has never blown my socks off, but is been plenty good enough to kill stuff over the years.

Overall, they are neat guns, bit for me they really don't do anything that I wouldn't rather have a 700 of some iteration for.

I agree with lillysdad, the safety is no big issue, either on or off. I also agree the accuracy is good but never just blew me away accurate and I really didn't care that much for the set trigger. Seems in the set position I am reaching for it. Don't get me wrong, they are nice guns but I never seem to have one that doesn't eventually gets sold. But thats kinda what I do, buy one, shoot it a while and sell it.

The one I have was my father's, so its not going anywhere. My 9yr old is starting to show a little interest in calling, and it will make a dandy for him.

If it were just another gun, it would have gone down the road, likely replaced by another 700 of some sort.

I got message from a CZ guy, looks like after the shot show.
I have not found out if you have to order them there or what.
I will have friend ask at the show.

I like my CZ 527 American and I don't think I will swap it for the MTR

The Lux stock is ok if you plan on using the open sights, but

warm & fuzzy feeling with it and finally replaced it with a
Boyd's on my 455.

I'm apparently the odd-ball here....already have a warm & fuzzy
feeling for the stock on the MTR. scared


I had a "hogs back" stock on my Brno Model 2 as well. Couldn't get a decent cheek weld with a scope so got a rimfire hunter (I think) and now much happier. Still have the original stock which is lovely but I like a scope

Hey. psycho...........

I held one yesterday and you can have it.... egonomic and all. laugh And yes, it is before the SHOT show, but I know where one is for evaluation purposes.

It was not designed for easy carrying in the field. Its a real clunker. YMMV.

I haven't held one or even seen one other than pictures. It doesn't look like it would be a carry friendly rifle though. Maybe more designed for the PRS crowd. IDK??? Doubt I will ever own one.

I so wish that CZ would build the 527 carbine in S/S-syn. I would love one in .22 Hornet, it would be a great walk around beater gun for varmints & coon hunting.
