How about a CZ/BRNO photo thread?

I admit to being biased. I have several commercial CZs and BRNOs and like them a lot.

Bought this in the 1980s. There was an embargo at the time so I had to go through a Canadian importer and I paid way too much as a result but I wanted it.

The day I bought this on a GunBroker auction I got fired from my job. Found a new job in 4 weeks and still have the rifle 6 years later.

Bought a similar rifle in the early 1980s and it was my favorite rifle until it was stolen in 1986. Found this one last year and although in much rougher shape I am still glad to have it.

While looking for the rifle seen above I came across this version. Really wanted the full stock model but this was in like new condition and I bought it. Maybe 2 weeks later I found the other one for sale. Kept both.

This damn thing thing has shot 1/2" groups at 100 yards with military surplus ammo. Weighs about 6 pounds. Great rifle.

This is a military 98 rebuilt by a Bavarian gun smith after the war. Bagged it at a local show for $350 and never looked back.

Started with a commercial action picked up off Auction Arms for $240 and built this out of it. I figure I have about $550 in it. Sweet.

What, NOBODY wants to share a photo of their rifle?

Give it time, the cz owners need time to wake up.

I would post my cz rifles but I own none yet. Just waiting for some money. Before I get a rifle a cz sp-01 has been calling to me.

Cz stuff is great, can't wait to finally add some to the collection, but electronics have been draining my hobby funds lately.

OK. I don't have any photos of my 452 FS yet.




CZ Tactical/Sport.

Mine are rather staid and pedestrian compared to some of those beauties posted above.

Here is a BRNO. Not sure what model.

the above are all pre Kansas city, all marks are rolled in, not stamped or stencilled. full front and hooded sights, rear wing sights. other markings are all
the ancient Cyrillic type, measurements are all russian as well. The bbl is something like 16.1 or 16.7 inches long. I have 2 of these
called the 527 carbine- one in 223, and one in 762.39.

I also have 2 of these;

one is in the poly green kote, so nice...

AS a reminder; if you have a pistol by the name of Toz, t/z, witness, tangfolio,
smithwesson m#p, sarmilsaz, and various others, it is most likely a copy of the cz 75.

DoubleA- the wood grain on that 221 Fireball is outrageous. More pics!!!!

Rangerruck- how do you figure the S&W M&P is a cz75 copy?

Beautimus rifles there, SaxonPig.

While not as classic as some of yours, I've got a couple of "functional" ones also.


CZ527 Varmint .223 w/ Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x40AO

CZ452 Special .22lr w/ Simmons 22Mag 3-9x32

CZ452 Varmint .17HMR w/ Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40SF

19-3; because it is!!! if youhave handled , shot a lot of cz's in your time, there is no doubt. Also, when s/w first put out literature, on what they were looking to do , for how they wanted a pistol constructed and how it was to feel, they themselves say, they got their design mods from the cz 75. They said it, not me!!!

Yeah thanks for rubbing in the fact that you have so many great rifles. My brothers and I all have 452's, they have americans, I have a Lux. Not as nice as yours, I love that 527 Kevlar, have one for sale at work.
