CZ 527 very light trigger
« on: January 03, 2019, 08:06:46 PM »
Just bought a new CZ 527 in 7.62. The trigger is as light as the set trigger and it doesn't pull very far.  Should I send this in to CZ or adjust myself?

I'd give it a go myself. If you don't get what you're looking for you can send it back then.

This might help... http://cz-usa.com/news/the-cz-single-set-trigger-system/

It's annoying that it came from the factory like this and I'm wondering if its emblematic of it of deeper issues because I also bought 2 of these magazines

And neither of them will lock into the gun no matter how much pressure I put on them. I can chamber the first round but then the magazine will start slipping out. The magazine that came with the rifle works fine however.

Sounds like someone has already "fiddled" with the rifle and lightened the trigger - I've never heard of a factory rifle with an already lightened trigger. Also the action may not have been put back into the stock properly, causing the magazine locking issues possibly.

Something VERY odd there if two mags for the same rifle won't lock in, but the factory stock one that came with it works fine. Dumb question - you are absolutely sure they are the same mags?
As for the trigger, I would simply adjust the regular and set trigger to your preference. Mine was just right from the get go, but I have known many people to take advantage of the adjustable trigger. if that doesn't work, then definitely get a hold of CZ-USA, 1-800-955-4486. i would call them anyway about that oddball magazine issue, sounds like the spare mags are wrong, not the rifle.

The user/owner manual shows how to adjust the trigger. If you don't have one you can download it from the CZ website. It's pretty simple if you have basic skills and tools.
