CZ’s incredibly popular 527 Carbine now has a youth variant. Though the action and barrel stay the same, the Turkish Walnut stock has been shrunk in nearly every dimension. With a 12.75” length of pull, smaller pistol grip with tighter radius and a thinner forend, the Youth Carbine makes an ideal first deer rifle. Chambered in .223 Rem., it’s more than capable of taking deer-sized game and deliver little felt recoil compared to many youth offerings on the market. Paired with a smooth micro-Mauser action and single set trigger, a standard Carbine stock can be added as the shooter grows, so its small size won’t relegate it to the back of the safe a few years down the road.
Built to CIP specifications, CZ’s .223s will happily eat 5.56, since CIP doesn’t differentiate between the two cartridges and just has the higher pressure as its standard. So CZ .223s will shoot everything from the cheapest Russian steel to match .223 brass ammo.
