If you try to adjust the trigger there is a very helpful YouTube video.  but if its a new production gun you'll need a hex wrench instead of a flathead screwdriver.

Back before they offered the 7.62X39 in the American I picked up the Carbine. They make a nice little package. When CZ offered the 6.5 Grendel in the American I bought one of those too. The Americans are the classier looking set up.

My 527s are a 223 and a Grendel.  One of the local shooters has the carbine and he has cooked up some very nice loads for pig hunting.  All group 1 1/4 inch or better. 

Did have to take a jewelers file to the claw extractor to smooth out feeding. 

Best wishes and congratulations on a fine rifle.

I have a 7.62x39 in the carbine, and a 223 American. Personally I like the carbine better. Ive been pleasantly surprised by what it will do hunting-wise. Just picked up a 527 in 6.5 Grendel, but haven't used it hunting yet.

You'll like your new rifle.

Yesterday I went to a local store with the intention of looking at whatever 527s were in stock and asking what the lead time would be on one in 7.62x39... the guy turned around and handed it to me. I immediately knew it had my name on it. I test fired it at the range and it does indeed go boom, so now I’m in search of a scope. Any suggestions much appreciated, and in the meantime I’m reading all the older threads.

I wish CZ would crank out the 527 Carbines in 6.8SPC.  I have one in x39 and we're slowly learning how to coexist peacefully.
If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger hammer.

I have the 527 in 7.62x29 and it's a terrific rifle The scope I'm using is a Leupold VX-2 2-7x33mm. I'm happy with its accuracy. The set trigger is a total plus. Be careful reassembling the bolt, "Please note carefully the correlated positioning of parts, especially of the bolt body and the bolt body sleeve. After each disassembly and reassembly of the bolt, check for yourself if it is possible to engage the safety in the manner described in this Instruction Manual." The sleeve can be assembled backwards and the rifle will still fire but the safety cannot be engaged.

That’s great. What kind of accuracy are you getting at 100 yards?
