Our Assessment: CZ couldn’t have stated it better, “Whether you’re after varmints, medium game or just like to punch holes in paper, our micro-Mauser 527 can do the job. Built on a .223-length action, the tiniest of our centerfire platforms is also one of the most beloved by CZ fans. Chambered in a number of cartridges from .17 Hornet and .204 Ruger up to 6.5 Grendel and 7.62×39, it’ll take everything from small game to deer. The CZ 527 American features a classic American pattern stock, a sporter-weight hammer forged barrel, a single set trigger and a recessed target crown.” This rifle is in beautiful condition and the wear to the stock likely came by way of how it was stored. Discontinued in 2021, this is your opportunity to take home a fantastic little varminter that is no longer in production. Please see our photos and good luck!
