    Ive been on a long search for a 17 Fireball or a 20 Vartarg

    Looked at Cooper but im looking at a 6-8 month wait........................

    I once had a 19 Badger that was re-barreled on a CZ action that shot great.

    Does anyone know of a Good Smith that can Rebarrel a CZ 527 action for me.

    Was wondering if a CZ 527 in a .223 would work for this or would I need one from a .221?

    Seems like good gunsmiths are getting about as scarce as honest politicians. I'd check the barrel maker to see what services they offer around mounting to your action, head spacing, etc. If you start with the 527 in .221 it a should be simple; am thinking it's possible to still use the magazine, btw.
