Yeah, the 527 is not an ideal choice for a long-range precision gun. It's a fine small-game rifle, though, and a super fun plinker.

Also, where can I get some weightless goth bullets?

slartibartfast posted:

Mine's a 455 Lux, but I want to caution you that if you don't order all the barrels you want as part of your initial order, then when you do get around to ordering them, you'll need to get them properly headspaced by a gunsmith (or someone who knows what they're doing). Apparently this is done already if you buy all the barrels when you buy the action. Maybe that's common knowledge, but it was news to me at the time; this was one of my first guns. I didn't buy the multiple barrels to save a couple bucks, and now I'm regretting it.

Is this a legitimate thing, or is it just CZ covering their asses legally? It doesn't make sense to make a gun specifically capable of changing calibers and sell kits if this is really needed.

I have a .17hmr 455, and I got a .22 barrel for it, but have yet to get a spacer to hold the mag in so I haven't shot it yet.

Since when? the .223 527 came in 1:9 in the varmint versions and 1:12 in others

Unless you're talking about the other cals it comes in which all only have 1 standard twist rate each

If you ever need to swap the extractor on a CZ Shadow, make sure you use a small hammer and punch. Just tap the pin, don't bash it with a big hammer like I did. Now I have idiot scratches on the slide and had to order a new pin. I learnt my lesson and got the appropriate tools. It only took a couple of minutes to swap out with the right tools and I feel like an idiot.

Yeah, it's a legit thing, but also sort of CYA. I suppose you could get a barrel that was incompatible with your bolt, but probably unlikely. I purchased a .17hmr barrel for my 455 after the fact and it clearly states in the documentation that it needs to be head spaced by a professional. I took mine into the gunsmith. He slapped the .17 barrel on gauged it, shot a few rounds and said it was good without any special tweaks. Had I known, I wouldn't have taken it in, but as it is, I'm grateful for the peace of mind.

Ozzie approves

I finally got a 452 Varmint to throw in my BRNO target stock I bought from Denny on RFC many moons ago. It used to have my UL in it, but it never really fit right, since the rear sight kept you from being able to mount a scope at a good height for the comb on it, and it was a waste of all that long sight radius to put a scope on an Ultra Lux, anyway.

I haven't gotten to shoot it as it is, but I like the way it looks. I may end up experimenting with glass and pillar bedding it, just for shits and giggles. The 36x44 BSA scope came with the Varmint when I bought it off Gunbroker, so I guess I'll leave it on there until I get around to buying something better.

Ozzie seems to approve of it.


The trigger's already really good, with basically no take-up, and very crisp. Probably won't be modifying it like I did my UL. The bolt still needs some breaking in, though, so I'll be bugging the poo poo out of my roomate for a couple nights working with it

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark

What is the best guide for reassembling SP01 fire control components? I am going to do a full strip and clean and respring of my SP01 now that I am past the 8k round mark. I could probably keep running it without issue but its dirty as gently caress in the trigger parts and its bugging me. I might order some cajun gun works parts and stick em in while im at it.

This guide here, while specifically about doing a trigger job on the CZ-75 series of pistols, does a pretty great job of letting you know what to expect out of detail-stripping your SP-01 (in fact, the guide uses an SP-01). I used that guide to take apart my CZ 85 Combat to replace things.

Nothing to worry about at all, really. That's a sign that the gun is being used like a gun. It's not like anyone will see the interior of the slide rails when the gun is assembled.

Just keep it lubricated, and nothing will go wrong.

Placed an order today with David of CGW. SP-01 with race hammer , SAO trigger, ez drift rear and solid black front, and I'm having him 86 the firing pin block. This is my second time having a pistol worked over by him and I'm beyond stoked to get it.
Does anybody make a set of target grips for the sp-01/75? I want something super ergonomic with a nice big thumb rest, preferably without the Nill price tag.

The safety makes a good thumb rest. I just wish the safety was a slightly bigger, around the size Tanfoglio makes would be perfect.

The one thing I really loved about my 1911's ergonomics was the thumbrest. The CZ fits my hands much, much better but feels like something is missing without the massive thumb safety.

Nope, they're based out of Idaho is what I heard. I got Thai grips for my last CZ , and probly won't go that route again. Fit and finish were meh, befitting the cost, and they were way too flat and shapeless for my taste. I want something that's more like a wood, slightly slimmer version of the stock rubber grips.

I have a set of those. Nicely cut, decently aggressive checkering, perfect fit, and a good oil finish. You could do worse for the money, IMHO.

I figure the trigger is aftermarket, but how does one get that color/patina on the frame?
