1. Bought a CZ 527 .204 a few weeks ago.
2. Decided to put a Meopta Optika6 3-18x50 on it
3. Bought Warne medium dovetail rings
4. Mounted scope. Bell clears; bolt handle does not. (Focus ring is very bulky.)
5. Installed a Glades Armory curved bolt handle which is supposed to resolve the issue
6. Remounted scope, handle still wouldn't clear
7. Exchanged medium rings for highs
8. Remounted scope and now the the bolt barely clears

Excited to get to the range and sling some lead at 4000 fps. This rifle fills no practical need but I think it will be fun to play around with.

Get it running, kill something with it. Then you can say it's practical. I bet it shoots.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Would be a fun rig to poke holes in prairie dogs. up


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Very nice little rig for varmints!

You will love that scope


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Shoots 1/2 MOA. (Why is the 4th shot always a downer?)

FWIW – my eyesight is not great but I found the crosshairs on the Meopta Optika6 (Z Plex reticle) frustratingly hard to see.
