Sounds like they've got some very effective marketing. :eek: I've found the PC Carbine to be extremely usable just as it comes out of the box, but it's certainly a fun gun to customize. :bthumb: I'm...

It likely won't fit. The 455 Scout (and probably the 457 Scout too, since they appear to have the same sights) uses a different hole spacing for the rear sight than every other 455 model. Dumb, but...

I am SUPER excited that they imported the 457 Premium. :D I would buy one right now if it didn't have that stupid laser engraved billboard on the side, no kidding. :angry:

No kidding, I would have bought the M85 over my 527 if it actually was a mini-Mauser. I really wish my 527 had a Mauser-style magazine, but other than that I love it.

I contacted CZUB a couple years ago asking about the Lux II stock. They told me to expect it for sale from CZ-USA "soon", but it never happened. They also offered to ship me one from the Czech...

I've got one GSG 110rd 10/22 drum, and I've been very happy with it. Wish I'd gotten another since I got mine on sale for about $40. With good ammo (CCI, Federal) it's extremely reliable, with bad...

Gerald, if you do end up getting that 457 Scout, I'd love to see some pics comparing it to your 452 and 455 Scouts. I'm especially interested since you say it feels noticeably smaller than the 452 -...

I absolutely would buy a CZ 457 FS in .22 LR. I'd like that even more than I'd like a 457 Premium. :D

Here's an odd one: BMS CAM .223

I've never heard of this rifle before, but it's quite interesting (at least to me) since it uses standard AR-15 barrels and magazines. Something like this in .300 Blackout would make quite a good...

What year did that happen? I'd love a modern M70 (and in .30-06 to boot :D), but only if it's an American-made rifle. Not because I think the Portuguese ones are bad (the ones I've handled are...

Both my bolt handles have the indentation drilled further out from the bolt body, like the one on the right in your pic. So I guess that makes them the new style? (They both have the stamped mark...
