A mini with a factory box magazine, not a detachable magazine. Is that new for 2023? Plastic or metal? Sure would like a pic if possible.I just bought a Howa Mini in 223 with a 22" barrel and walnut stock from GB.I want it for a walk around Varmint rifle .This has the floor plate , no extended mag.I never had a mini before but the full size 1500`s were stupid accurate for the money.
Buddy works for CZ USA, the reason given for changing up all their bolt guns designs was money in a way. Tooling =$$$$$, scuttle butt was all the tooling and machines were totally worn out a d had been rebuilt numerous times.
Sounds like a good reason to go all CNC, then simplify everything. (Not any better) simple and cheaper.
I have had several CZ’s over the years, have not shed a tear over the 527’s leaving my stable, replaced with the Mini.
Only regret on a CZ is not buying a drop dead gorgeous 550 in 505 Gibbs.
