would people like 10 round 527 magazines?
« on: July 09, 2017, 05:32:40 AM »
Just curious what other shooters think. I have one 10 rounder for my 527M/CSR that a buddy hand made for me, that works perfectly. I like that for the "knock around" utility rifle that you take somewhere camping and you don't expect to do any real shooting. I was wondering if I was unique in wanting something like that. I do realize most bolt action rifles are target/hunting/plinking rifles, no war machines any more, and a higher capacity magazine might not be really needful for things like that. :)
Thoughts?

Not for me, I would rather have something like a 3 round magazine that would not  drop down so far.

James Calhoon has a single shot adapter that is flush fit.  (almost the bottom of the "Price List" page)

I swear that I've seen flush fit magazines for the 527 before, but my google-fu must be weak today.

Finally found it on Calhoon's website.  It shows two models, one for rimmed cases like the Hornet, and up to the .223 based cases.  It does not say if it will work with the 7.62x39 based cases like the Grendel though.  I may give him a call tomorrow and see.

I have one of the Bobsled types for my Hornet and it works great, but hangs down a bit, although I could cut it off some.  I did e mail CZ a question about one for the Grendel and they stated that the 7.62 model works.

Like this?

I think it will work in any 527 if you change the bottom metal. There might be more to it than that.
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.

That model is available in .223 only, and only with a polymer stock.   I wanted a 6.5 Grendel, and it only comes with the standard 5 round magazine and in walnut or rustic birch(or beech).   The bigger, fatter Grendel case would not function through a .223 magazine.  There was some rumor that the Grendel would be offered with this type magazine, but it was not to be.

I don't need a 10 rounder, but a 3 would be good.

A poster on another site has a 527 Prestige with one and it is nearly flush, bottom metal is different from my Lux.

Unfortunately the changes at Photobucket have made the image go away so I can't steal it.   >:(

There is someone that offers a conversion, they modify the magazine, and magazine release along with modifying the triggerguard.  The do not offer blueing but cerokote the triggerguard after modification and I just don't want part of mine painted.

I think the Prestige you saw must have been modified, as the only one CZ offers is the M1 model with the polymer stock.

Perhaps, I'm also not sure how old it is.

I'm planning on buying a 527 in 300 Blk when they get em in stock @ Buds.  I'd love a 10 or 20 round mag.  I wonder if the top oz a 527 mag could be welded to a smaller AR mag.

That would be great, as the 7.62 and the 6.5 Grendel use the same magazine.  My new Grendel came with a magazine with the follower stamped with both cartridges.  I purchased a couple of 7.62 mags and they work perfectly.   A 3 rounder would be perfect and if they offer some, I will grab a couple.
