View Full Version : Recommended scope for .223 CZ?

I just bought a .223 CZ 527FS and was wondering what scope I should put on it. Would like to keep it bare, but I got horrible vision....

I would look at an osprey . The look nice for the money but have not got to check optics except in a crowded gun show. Used best bet at a local shop that allows return if sope is bad.

We could use a little insight as to what you plan to use the rifle for,,, Target ??? Varmit ??? 100 yd. shots, 300 yd. shots ??? A price range would help quite a bit too ,,, there are literally dozens of good to better scopes that would compliment that new CZ.... 10 Spot

It's a good rifle so I'd put a decent scope on it. If a 3-9x40 will meet your needs then I'd go with a Nikon Team Primos (https://www.natchezss.com/product.cfm?contentID=productDetail&prodID=NK8435&prodTitle=Nikon%20Riflescopes%20Team%20Primos%203%209x40%20BDC%20Reticle%20Riflescope). It's the equal of the Nikon Monarch but instead of paying $350 for a 2-10 you'll pay $210 for the 3-9x40 from Natchez, or $220 from SWFA.

If you need more magnification than that then the minimum I'd look at a Weaver V16 4-16x42 for about $275 or so.

If money is too tight for either of those then I'd look at Weaver's V9 (https://www.natchezss.com/Category.cfm?contentID=productDetail&prodID=SN849402&prodTitle=Weaver%20Hunting%20Riflescopes%20Classic%20V9%20Series%203%209X38%20Dual%20X%20Reticle%20Black%20Matte).
