I'm not sure how it compares to the Calhoun bolt but I can tell you that everything I've seen from CRT has been amazing in machining, finish and workmanship. This bolt will be right there. The knob is a tactical style although they make a more rounded standard knob as well that is a little less money. The Ergo is $90 and should be in stock shortly.

I'm also looking at the cz 527 cal 17 hornet. Having the same thoughts. There are after market rails available for a longer platform. I'm leaning towards the new Burris veracity 20x.

Re: Scope for CZ 527 Varmint

I bought the standard model 527 in a lefty 223 4 years ago. It was without a doubt the
worst gun experience i ever had. I ended up over a period of about 4 months having
3 different ones. That didnt count the second one i got the day following the sale.
Bottom line was they wouldnt shoot under inch and a half at 100 yds with any load i tried. Even had the stock glass bedded. Each gun was sent back to K. C. and a few
weeks later id get another gun after they test fired them. They finally returned my
money minus the 6% sales tax id paid. A sales clerk at the gun shop i bought it
claimed his varmit barrel model was an excellant shooter. I ended up buying a Savage which shoots very well but dosent have the good looks of the C Z.

I have a Leupold 4-12 AO scope on my CZ 527 17 Hornet rifle. Using Hornady 20 grain bullet ammo I got sub 1/2 inch groups while shooting at 100 yards off a bench rest . Should I get an other varmint rifle it will be a CZ. For shooting prairie dogs I have a Leupold 6-18 AO scope on my 204 Ruger rifle..

I have a pair of 527 Varmints in 204. I run Nikon Buckmaster SF scopes on them. Either the 4.5X16 or the 6X18. The bolt handle will clear the ocular without any alterations.

The rifles are a disappointment. Try as I might I could only get one load, besides the factory WW stuff, that would shot over an inch. Such a waste to leave all that unshot paper around the holes.

Re: Scope for CZ 527 Varmint

The newer 527s imported here (allegedly) have a bolt handle that lets most ocular bells clear. I did the Calhoon thing and it worked great. If I get another 527, it'll be a .204 Varmint, with a 6-18x Leupold VX 2, which is fairly compact/light for the magnification; a 4-12 would be even more so. Should clear the turrets okay; www.diproductsinc.com sells a picatinny rail conversion if you think that clearance is a problem. CZs don't have bases per se, btw; they use 16mm "ringmounts" made also by Burris, Leupold, Millett, Warne, and Talley(?). Americans come with these "rings", but Varmints don't.
