    I'm looking for a .223 bolt action plinker and paper puncher. It's down to a CZ 527 American or a Savage 14 American Classic. Must have a wooden stock. I hate plastic.

    I already own two CZ rifles and love them. But I'm leaning toward the Savage for diversity and the Accutrigger may be a little better out of the box than the CZ set trigger.

    Which would you go with?

    If you dont have a Savage, id go with that. If you want a more properly sized rifle go with the CZ. You might want to look for a Savage light varminter classic. They dont make them anymore, but they are still around used. Thats what I want lol.

    Have you considered the Savage Model 25?

    Yes, but I'm not interested. I don't like laminate stocks. Solid hardwood only.

    That's fair. It would be nice if they would put the Model 25 action in a nice walnut stock. You either like the laminate look or you don't.

    I own the Savage model 14 in .223 and have no regrets. I'm like you...have to have wood. I can live with laminate but greatly prefer a regular hardwood stock.

    They did do the 25 in a "classic" walnut stock, but i think they dropped it this year. I see them on gunbroker "new" still, or did last time i looked.

    CZ...for sure.

    No offense, but I can't imagine how that could be possible. On the off chance it was, a couple of screw turns and it is what ever you want.

    If you're going for a .223, I see no need for all the extra weight of a typical short action rifle. Especially if you're already familiar with CZs.

    I've got 4 Savage rifles now, all chambered in short action calibers. I also own 3 CZ 527s, all in calibers prefectly suited to the micro action.
