View Full Version : CZ 527 owners, i need some help

July 9, 2008, 10:34 PM
im looking for a receiver mounted, aperture sight for my 527 carbine. are there any out there that can be mounted with a minimum of machining/fitting? i dont want to ruin the rail, but i dont mind a little drilling/tapping.

i do plan to call williams and negc tomorrow to see if they have anything that will work.

thank you for your time

Have you called CZ? They may have some ideas.

Good luck

My thought is it wouldn't line up with the front sight properly.

Czech this out though. Kalinka Optics has a dedicated weaver rail for our 527's! Pretty sweet.

Midway's catalog has a few peep sights that might work.

Page 648. NECG ltd "rear peep sight" $79.99

"This steel sight attaches to a scope base and includes 2 elevation slides. Also includes two aperture discs."

Thing is, the 527's scope channel is 16mm and very difficult to find anything for. You may have to get that Weaver mount I pointed out *then* put this sight on.

I'm not really seeing anything else that could work, although some do mention drill/tap.

Hey if you do find something, let me know. I'd love to get something adjustable for my carbine.

I have a .223 CZ 527 Varmint Kevlar and have also been looking for a receiver rail however I would be careful with this one. I’ve read a handful of posts which suggest that this rail is of poor quality and the bolts which tighten the rail to the receiver have a tendency to strip out. CZ manufactures a rail for their 452/453 series rifles, but regrettably nothing for the 527 which is disappointing news for such a popular rifle.
