A short video about my rifle

A short video I did today about the conversion of my CZ 527M into what I call the 527 CSR, and it's first post production testing.

Looks like you had fun. I always like things with a personal touch, even if I don't necessarily like the end result: not so in this case, though.
The mag holder is a nice touch: always handy as a time-saver if nothing else, and the stock as a whole looks very nicely done. A neat, well-thought out package. Well done you!!

So, does the new stock improve your aim, comfort, both? Or purely cosmetic? Why the switch?

I wanted to prove a concept. It is VERY comfortable to shoot - I put about 300 rounds through it yesterday of various reloads and factory ammo. Heck, I couldn't STOP shooting it!
I had to adjust the Marbles rear sight to compensate for the stock change affecting my normal use ammo - oddly enough, the lead reloads worked perfectly to POA...and those 129 NOEs are gonna do some jackrabbit busting in a few days as i further prove the concept by taking it hunting this weekend.

I use Windows Movie Maker, a free program. I can only say that multiple camera angles helps, and MANY takes. Then edit, edit, edit. Go with what would hold YOUR interest if you were watching.

I always liked those rifles! Interesting stock.

That's a nice conversion.
Good shootin', too.
Here's what the regular version is like, for reference:
http://www.cz-usa.com/products/view/cz-527-carbine/

One criticism, though.
(You didn't really think there wouldn't be one, did you?)
Why do you raise your head off the stock with each throw of the bolt?

In the video, it briefly mentions it is a 7.62x39.
