527 bolt handle change?
« on: December 12, 2018, 11:50:41 AM »
My 2001 527 has a curved bolt handle.  What's the difference in the aftermarket 527 bolt handles that CZ sell now,  do they have even more of a curve?

Both the older and newer versions of the bolt handle have a fair amount of curve. If you take your rifle and open the bolt on the back of the bolt handle you'll see a recessed hole. The hole is for the bolt lock when the safety is in the on position. On the newer bolt handle there is less metal above the recessed hole. This allows for more scope clearance. I guess this would mean the newer handles have a bit more curve. Unless your paying real close attention they look pretty much the same though.

I'll give it a try with the standard curved bolt handle and the Warne mediums.  Thanks.
