Mine don't look quite as purdy as a LOT of y'alls, but I'm quite happy with them.
1st off is my 527 Carbine in 7.62 x 39
Next is supposedly a LUX with M1 bottom metal (off an American M1 I also have) and 3 round magazine. If you notice, it does not have the "humpback" stock and looks like an American stock, but says LUX on the receiver ? It was put together (made?) in 98 while CZ was moving stuff over here from the old country, according to CZ-USA's "historian".
I would have believed that someone just stuck an American stock on it, but it appears to have a factory cut in the stock to accommodate the rear sight boss, while the Americans came sans sights I've heard of strange combinations coming out of CZ heaven, but since I bought it used, whose to say for sure.
Thanks ChangFest and Wonderdog1,
This was the first time I'd ever seen wood with the natural "flame" look, and since I'd just parted with a blistering accurate 452, this eased the pain by rolling the funds right into another CZ, albeit a centerfire.
A bud hooked me up with a simple hand loader, but in 10 years I've only fired the factory fodder. Typical CZ accuracy, no complaints there.
I now dream of someday owning a 22LR with such wood.
David....sir thank you for the close up of the scope mounting system...who's brand of rail are you using ? looks like a nice set up.
The rail is EGW. I am not a great fan of it. As delivered, it uses 6x40 set screws with 1/16 Allen head. I have twisted off 2 1/6 allen bits in 2 of the screws trying to get the mount to lock down tight. If I ever undo the rail, I would drill out the 4 and go to 8x40 torx head set screws.
Then I found out that not all rings will fit if the clamps project too low. The rings I am using, I got with the scope and they work, but some UTG rings that are quick disconnect will not.
It all works together and I am OK with it but wish I could take the scope off to put it in the safe and not take up so much room :-(
