Just Recieved one of BRNOMAN's peep sights

Just put one of Brnoman's rear peep sights on my Special.
It's a neat sight and looks to be well made.

The Specials standard front sight is too low to have a practical zero with the peep sight. Now to wait until his front sights and adapters come in or to try and rig up my own globe sight.

Can't wait to try out my "new" CZ Special "Competition" rifle.

Thanks! That is a good looking sight and rifle.

Brnoman said that he should receive his front sights/adapters in a week or two. I've enjoyed dealing with him.

I'm excited about the sights. I've been shooting quite abit with the factory iron sights at 200yds and have been impressed with what the rifles will do. It will be interesting to see if the apetuer sights improves groups.

Certainly. The sights are available from brnomann - just PM him here at RFC. Or, you can look on GunsAmerica - just type in BRNO and "nongun" and his ads will come up under DEJAY. Denny is a really neat guy and you will enjoy his enthusiasm for all things BRNO. The sights he has available were originally made for the BRNO target models and have a 16mm bottom groove - be sure you ask him for the 16 to 11mm adapter when you order. The rear sight -either "Match" or "Olympic" will, with the adapter, fit onto the 452's 11mm groove.

Still lacking, and soon to be available thru brnomann, is the compatible front globe sight setup. According to Denny, the front sights he has coming will adapt to the CZ 452 front dovetail, and will complete the set.

Nothing against Brookie's aperture sight - I have a couple of those and love them - but this looks like the real thing - and with real Czech parts, too!

Range report - BRNO 3S

Took out my new (made in 1956!) BRNO Model 3S this morning. After a little sighting in and few rounds downrange at 25 and 50 yards, we were breaking eggs with it at 100 yards. Boy, that is a s t r e t c h for these old eyes! I could hit about 5 out of 10 at that range. Maybe I can do better with some practice...hard for me to even see the egg at that range....

OldSwede, are those eggs, grade A small, medium or extra large? LOL

That's some good shooting, I think I'll try looking up some large goose eggs for starters.

Evidently there are different heights of CZ front sights that may allow you to zero with the "Match" sights. I may try to check into that depending on when the front sights and adapters arrive.

I know the 527s have different blade heights as I had a problem with elevation on mine.

Yeah now thats what we are talking about!!

That is definitely a find - you should be very proud of it. Never speak ill of it, nor feed it bad ammunition, should it get 'the colic'. :p

All kidding aside - that is a fine looking rifle. I'm sure it will not let you down.

j.r.:

Thanks. I love it, so far.. It "likes" Wolf MT and - wouln't you know it - my precious "stash" of Federal UM1.

I also have a Model 1 coming from brnomann "..to look at and see if I like it..." Yeah, sure - I'm not going to like it, right? Better make room for another gun safe....
