527 lux vs carbine



Log in to see fewer ads
Does anyone know if the 527 Carbine will fit in a Lux stock? What is the difference between the two? Just barrel length? I am looking for a 7.62 Carbine but i really like the shape of the Lux stock grip and hog back. It's most likely easier to find a bigfoot than a stock for a 527 of any type but a guys got to have goals.

Auto, just offering my opinion...don't give up on the CZ527 carbine as stocked. I have three CZ527 carbines in x39, .223 Rem, and a synthetic X39. The walnut x39 model is probably my favorite rifle/cartridge combo. The Lux stock swap is an interesting idea, but if you can only find the CZ527 Carbine in it's original configuration, give it a try. It is quite the rifle.

And the CZ527 Carbine in 7.62x39. This is the older model...only minor differences. This model was reported to have a stock splitting problem....so far no worries here.

CZ 527 7.62x39 Carbine in an older Lux Stock, works just fine.







Several Deer have reason to dislike it if they were still around.

Just bed the lug and make sure the rear of the tang does not contact the stock and they will not split.

A very interesting thread regarding CZ stock switch. I have a CZ 527 carbine in 7.62 X 39 m/m and a 527 LUX in .222 Remington. So is it possible to switch stocks on my two CZs?? I use the open sights on the carbine but have a scope on the .222 LUX; I like the looks of the LUX stock on the carbine which better suits the use of open sights.

Excuse my dumb question, but I've never done this procedure. Can you point me to a good info resource? or give a quick tip or two. Apologies to OP for getting slightly off topic.

I put a Lux stock on my 7.62X39 527 carbine, took about ten minutes. It is an easy swap. The new Lux stock has a steel insert for the recoil lug to rest against.

I copied Wonderdog1 and his set up:





It took me months to find a Royal to start with so I put his rifle on my screen saver looking at it every morning until I found one:



and here is mine:


It fell into place.

Bottom rifle is my cut on swapping out stocks with a 527 carbine. This was done on my .223 Rem. Basically it was a drop-in, but of course I had to trim the total length of forearm back.
The original OEM stock is on top there in the pic.
