Naw. I would have no use for one. I don’t hunt. I don’t reload. I thought about taking up long distance target but there is no local range. Between the shotguns, the rimfires, and the .357 Henry Rifle, I got any potential varmints covered.

I am tempted by the CZ 527 bolt action in .223/5.56. I think I have a couple hundred rounds if 5.56 left over from when I sold my AR.
CZ 527 bolt action 5.56 looks better to me now that I compare my 7.62x39 CZ to my Thompson Center Compass 5.56. If I had known how awesome the CZ was, I wouldn't have purchased the TCC.

I recently lost an auction for a pair of CZ527s. One was a .223 Mannlicher and the other was a regular sporter in 7.62. I really wanted that full-stock .223.

Those are super cool. I understand the craving.

I just went and checked, and they sold for about $1400, which is way more than I was willing to pay. I’m glad. It would have killed me to lose out over $50!

I agree. Nice weapon, but pretty expensive. You know your limits.

Thats like full on msrp. Nice lookin bush guns though. Their website says they like surplus russian steel over American made, weird. Plus their .223 shoots .556.

Yeah. And I’m sure in five years they will be going for 2x MSRP and it will be another rifle I kick myself for not buying when they were relatively reasonable (insert kick for not buying the $700 Ruger .44 International four years a back).

Amazingly never heard about them. Saw one just sold online. But here's the story behind them. https://www.americanrifleman.org/articl ... 4-carbine/

Here’s mine. L to R: 20 ga, 7.62x54r, .223/5.56, 9x19, .380acp, .22wrf, .22lr, .25acp

Edited to add:

My choices aren’t nearly as well thought out as yours. I had a couple boxes of 20 ga left over from hunting doves with a borrowed shotgun years back, so I bought a couple shotguns to use it up. The 7.62 fits a Mosin I bought at Big 5 20-odd years ago because it was $60. The .223 is because, well, A-Team. 9mm is because I wanted a full size centerfire and didn’t really care about stopping power or whatever (still don’t) and the Glock was a good deal in the case. I still can’t explain the .380. .22wrf appeared in a case of ammo I inherited and I’ve so far resisted the temptation to buy a gun for it (but I hear you can shoot em in .22 mag cylinders so one of those convertible revolvers may be coming my way eventually). Everyone needs a .22 (or four), and the .25 fits a Beretta that makes less sense than the .380.

I will be adding .308 because I’m over 7.62x54r and a .44mag because hand cannon (and Ruger .44 Carbine). I may not be able to resist an SKS/CZ 527 combo, especially if I figure out aperture sights. But then I’m done. I swear.

Sorry for the word vomit but I twisted the (poop) out of my ankle and I’m sitting here with my foot elevated and bitter because it’s Tuesday and I won’t drink as much as I want to forget the pain.

My grandpa gave me his .25 semi-auto. Dang thing was small, not awful but couldn't go through a car door, circa 65'. Lol
Got nothing bad to say about the 7.62. The 9MM and.380 I think are great. I carry both all the time.
