Last year I was lucky enough to get a CZ527 carbine in 7.62 x 39 and a nice leupold 1.5-5 x 20 illuminted reticule short scope for stalking. The plod took a little persuasion but as it is so light I can heft it about like a little M1 carbine and concentrate on the client and his deer. All went well. I developed a handload for it using 26.7 grains of Vit N120 gets me 1750 ft lbs of energy which is enough for a 125 grain .311 bullet to comply with the deer act. I hadnt yet taken a deer with this in fact I had taken a couple of clients out and zeroed my own but got no further. I came back from one outing to find the stock was cracked; Youngest Ugly on a trip to the farm for some fun before the scope arrived. Now not that I was particularly impressed with the stock splitting but the UK importers wanted me to pay shipping. I stood my ground and a replacement stock has been fitted and I should be able to collect from my nearest RFD on Monday which gives me till wednesday to zero as I'm taking a client roe buck stalking that evening. The woodwork is warrantied for 2 years and the metal for something like 5 years. I am glad that they have managed to get this sorted before the season ends as I need some extra bambi burgers and I want so much to use that carbine as I have taken deer with all of my others. Its such a neat little woodland tool.
