Got a great deal on a 527 in .223 this weekend on Gunbroker. Can't wait to get it. Also, I put a Yodave trigger spring kit on my 452 UL this weekend, and drat is it nice. Took the trigger down to about 1-2 pounds. Definitely worth the $18, and I haven't even used the shim tubes yet

edit for pic

This guy! Anybody know if it's an American or Varmint? I can't tell from the pics, and the ad didn't say.

What kind of difference in performance should I expect between a carbine and full length 527 in 223? I don't hunt so I don't need to bullseye a deer's heart at 200 yards or whatever. I just like the aesthetic of stubby rifles. This would purely be a range toy, assuming I ever buy it. Which I probably won't because I don't know how to make up my mind about anything.

edit: Hell, what about 223 vs x39 while I'm asking? I have no experience with any rifle cartridges larger than 22LR. Ammo cost is my biggest concern. I'm a huge scrooge when buying ammo.

I would say yeah to this, but it could be a trick of the perspective. American is ~22" skinny barrel, Varmint is 24" heavier barrel.

Lux does, American does not.

Bummey posted:

Depends on if you want to put a scope on it. The Carbine's rear sight can make it difficult for scopes with a larger objective lens (i.e. pretty much everything 3x and up) to fit, but most 1-4x scopes will fit just fine. If you're going to be shooting most often at 100yd or less, the performance difference between 18" and 22-24" of barrel is negligible.

If it's purely a range gun and ammo cost is your primary concern (and you don't plan to handload or hunt with it), I'd go with x39 - but that limits your choice to the Carbine (not a terrible thing at all).

If I was gonna go polymer CZ I'd check out the P07 too, those look pretty nifty and are fairly inexpensive even in Canada. We get them with the extended barrel to make the length restriction so they look even cooler, imo.

The only reason IMO to get a 92 over a full size CZ is the availability/price of accessories and magazines. Id stay away from a phantom though - the regular SP-01 isn't much more expensive, and you'll be happier with it.

My CZ-75B Omega has the same trigger...and I'm not thrilled with it...it actually makes my finger sore (not in a friction/abrasion rubbing my skin off sort of way...more in a "its putting pressure on the wrong place on my finger and making it all worn out and sore" sort of way). Its the shape of the recurve trigger and the fact that I have long spidery fingers. Its also got one of the WORST DA pulls around...before my Berettas got D-Springs in them they had lack-luster pulls...but this thing makes those feel light and smooth by comparison. The SA pull is very light...its a slightly long pull with what feels like no resistance (even though its 3.5 pounds or so)...its nice other than the trigger shape...and its a CZ so you can just go cocked-and-locked. Its funny because the vz.82 has the BEST DA pull I've felt on a trigger.

I think it may get more comfortable as I shoot it more and it smooths out...OR perhaps they will eventually make a cool SAO trigger for the Omega trigger system...as the shape of those triggers looks much better. Or worse comes to worse and I'll trade it for a nice Compact or even a pre-B (those are sexy and deep down I want one).

Spent some time dialing in my 527 Carbine's trigger so there is no more overtravel. Between that and the set trigger, I think I am now completely spoiled for other rifles.

I miss that gun so much. Make sure you do the smack test, I had to back the trigger off a bit to keep it from ADing when hit.

I will also say that switching between that gun and a stock triggered 10/22 led to an endless stream of NDs and "why didnt my 10/22 fire? Oh, not done pulling the trigger yet" moments.

After every adjustment I would slam the butt into the floor 10 times trying to trip the sear - it never would, but adjusting it too far would prevent the trigger from tripping the sear at all for whatever reason. I then backed it off until it would trip reliably with a minimum amount of overtravel. It's now better than any rifle I've ever owned, and the set trigger is even better than that.

Ah, I was loving with the set trigger weight when I was getting it to AD.

God they are nice guns. As soon as I get last month's expense check I am going to get a LH 452 but I kinda want to wait a month and get another 527. I will not be the same as I want to get the American Model so I can re-barrel it. I did a little looking into getting irons mounted on a barrel but it is a $TEXAS$ proposition.

But look at this thing:

Polished my Ultra Lux with Scratch-X, then used Howard's Feed-N-Wax to polish it. Takes the factory satin finish to a high gloss. I couldn't really get it in a picture, but it looks like a different rifle. Added a YoDave trigger spring and shim kit, a Nikon 4-12 scope, and a short bipod. Got to take it to the range yesterday, and I absolutely love this goddamn gun. Can't wait to get my 527.

"Appended to its own quotation is false" appended to its own quotation is false.

Does anybody happen to know of a good inside-the-waistband holster for a CZ 75 Compact? CZ has one on their web site, but given that it's around $15 I'm slightly dubious of it, as I've been told that decent holsters are almost always $60-100 or more.

Bladetech makes this which is a fully kydex IWB holster. They make pretty good stuff, but I wouldn't expect it to be as comfortable as a hybrid holster. Or, for a little more, you can get one of these which would probably carry better.

If you can, recommend me a CZ pistol to get or some CZs to try at the range.

Deets:
I have large hands
I don't need concealed carry, this would be for the range and maybe some imaginary home defense
It must take the Kadet kit (is this all CZ pistols?)
I like target shooting so accuracy is fun, but I'm sure any of them are sufficient for my skill level
Must have grip comfortable for a long range session, or be able to take comfortable grip

Crossbreed Supertuck is a decent holster for 75 models (full size, Compact and PCR). If you have a P-01 you should definitely get an MTAC.

My thinking was shoot it with .22 using the Kadet kit at the range. Probably not the thread to get into what reasons I would have to choose between 9mm and .40, though. I'm not really the kind of person who keeps a pistol in his nightstand or anything, but I figure the forums are as good a place as any to brainstorm.
