CZ 527 Ebony Pics

Today's pickup was, as usual here in FL, quick and hassle free. In and out in ten minutes.

I saw a couple pics besides NCG's and was not surprised by what mine looks like. The pics on Gunbroker all showed stocks of dark walnut, which is fine with me, as all my other rifle stocks are reasonably light.

Not a mark on it anywhere. I thoroughly cleaned the oil off and applied a thin coat of Frog Lube where needed. Put two coats of wax on the stock. Then tried to assemble it.

Oh boy. Ten minutes later I was just about to go see if I can find a You Tube when I took a really close look at the bolt. This bolt has, for lack of a better word, a clip on it similar to what you find on an expensive pen or pencil. For the life of me I couldn't get the bolt in. Then I noticed that this clip rotates around the core of the pen (bolt). I had no idea exactly where it should be, but I noticed a number engraved on the bolt. It seemed logical to me that the "clip" should cover the number. When I rotated it over the number, the bolt slipped right in after depressing the bolt release.

Two main differences this newbie sees right off from the 452 's. The bolt release here is much nicer, rather than the little pin that you depress by depressing the trigger in the 452., this one is a lever mounted on top of the gun. Also, I had a heck of a time with the safety on my 452. It didn't want to move ..... at all. This one is slightly different and works much nicer.

Of course, this rifle also has a "much nicer" price, if you get my drift.

All in all, it's just what I had hoped and I'm excited about shooting it after I mount a temporary scope. Pics are below in two posts. The pics are great as it's very overcast and about to rain, but I wanted to get something out today.

I guess it's fair to say you are going to keep it. It certainly is a looker.

Yep. Fair assumption.

Oh, my, you got a great piece of wood on yours. I don't know if a nicer grade of wood is part of the Ebopny package, but our two sure are nice.

How's the trigger, both the regular and set? Most of the time these 527s come from the factory pretty good, no need for adjustment. If you haven't shot the set trigger on a 527 or a 453, you're in for pleasant surprise.

As I said in an earlier post, avoid the temptation to remove the action from the stock, at least for now. There are a couple of re-assembly tricks that are absolutely essential on a 527. Really no reason to take down the gun that far, anyway, unless you want to adjust the trigger settings and, be warned, that is quite a trigger setup on the 527. it is not tinkerer friendly.

Remember, too, that all CZ 527s smooth up REAL nice, so if yours is a little rough, now, don't fret. Best way to cycle the bolt on these is to just use the base your thumb and index finger to push pull on the bolt, keeping both down near the base of the bolt knob, rather than out on the tip of the bolt knob. Once you get a 527 action smoothed in, very fast to operate.

This bolt is much smoother than the 452's. I've only operated it a few times, and it's like butter in and down and the reverse.

I'll have to read more about the trigger. I'm not sure how it works. I dried fired it the normal way and it seems light, about like the 452. Then I pushed the trigger forward as it says, and it seems like if you breath on it, it fires. I didn't want to dry fire it too many times. Is that how it's supposed to work??

Yes, everything about this rifle shouts $$$$ compared to the 452 that I have. Of course it did cost twice as much.

Probably going to order tonight the Nikon 6729 for this one. 4-12 X 40. I mounted the Nikon rimfire to it and I think I really would like the scope a hair further to the rear than it's capable of right now. I really have to go to the range for this. The 6729 is about an inch and a half longer, so that should work if I find that I do want it a little further back.

Also going to order an Allen Company bag that I've been watching. Also a few mags including one 5 rounder. Also ................

That has some nice looking furniture on it. Can't wait for the range report. But don't make the report too good or I'll want one.

Yes, that's exactly how the set trigger works. It will take some experience using something so light. When shooting this or any other super light match trigger, you must strictly discipline yourself to only touch the trigger as the very LAST step in the shooting sequence. Here's what I do.

When everything is lined up and my breathing is where I want it, I touch the side of the trigger with a very light touch and then carefully work my finger around the front of the trigger to fire it. I do not touch the front of the trigger, first. Very hard to touch the front of the trigger, cold turkey, on such a light trigger and do it with the same light touch shot after shot.

Some dry firing to test the trigger is just fine on a centerfire bolt gun, just don't sit in front of the TV for an hour and do it. One thing you can do, though, while watching TV is cycle the bolt to smooth it up a bit. Did this on my new 527 FS, the other night.

A Nikon 4-12x would be a perfect match for any 527 in 223, though I may opt for a 2-7x on my FS becaue I do like 2x for offhand work.

The night before I took my 452 out, that would be the night before last, I brought out the 452 while watching TV and cycled it maybe 50 times. Then when I ran 150 rounds through it the next day, by the end of the day it was pretty smooth. Just a hang up down and then moving the bolt in the downward direction.

This one is smooth every direction. As for the trigger, I'm not sure where I saw what you mentioned above, but when I finished cleaning it, I had to try it once. It sure doesn't take much pressure. The manual says never to leave it in that position with the safety off. I can see why.

Thanks again for everything. For me, it all started with your pics. I'm sure I'll enjoy the rifle.

To be honest, I don't think I would carry the gun with the set trigger in position even with the safety on. Only takes a fraction of a second to set it, anyway.

One thing they say to do is to put the trigger in set position and jar the bolt, rifle, etc. to see if it fires. Unloaded of course.

I have one set trigger on an AR15 and hate it. You look at it wrong and it goes off. One thing I've learned to not to set it till you are ready to shoot.

One, you don't have to use it. Two, with the Ebony, you can change the pressure to fire on both the triggers.

I think I would change my mind if I had a good one. I sent mine out and had someone do it. I don't think he knew what he was doing.

One thing you can do on a 527 is use the travel adjustment screw on the trigger to eliminate the set trigger, completely, so the only option you have is the standard trigger. I know some folks who like it that way. Me, I like have the set trigger as an option.

Does it have two separate triggers?

I didn't know that. I'm not going to do a thing with it for the first 200-300 rounds. By then my shoulder should be raw.
