Sadly, not any way I'm aware of. Fix the ugly checkering and the crappy trigger guard and I'd have bought one long ago. :rolleyes:

Are they really considerably shorter? I've got a few of the extended Glock mags (for my G26, what else :D) and they're definitely on the longer side.

CZs were 1:12 until a few years ago, part of the reason I sold my .223 Lux. I think they're 1:9 now, but I'm happy enough with my 7.62x39 Carbine that I don't plan on getting another 527 anytime...
