    Has anybody tried one of the lower weight pull replacement triggers for the CZ 527 w/single-set trigger? Comments on it?

    yes...and i LOVE the trigger on my 527 american

    i completely removed the single set feature, i feel they are worthless

    but I swapped springs, shimmed, and polished everything up. feels great and is well under 1lb and safe

    Once you pull the spring you can find replacements at a hardware store. Buy a couple of different lengths and strength.

    I did the same as GSR and have been very happy with it.

    Rifle Basix makes a replacement. However, I'm going to try adjusting my 527 trigger first; not that hard.

    i disassembled the trigger completely....measured for shims....then reassembled with shims in place and just left off the set trigger parts.

    follow instructions in link above and you can adjust the set out of the trigger without modifying the trigger at all

    that's basically what I did...minus the stoning/polishing/shimming.....but if you're never gonna USE the set feature...then there's no reason to not just go ahead and remove it

    I replaced the trigger pull weight spring in all four of the CZ 527's I've owned. Bought the springs from James Calhoon, there very inexpensive $2 if I recall. I'm not a big fan of the set trigger and I have all of my CZ 527 triggers set right around 10oz with zero creep/pretravel.

    Once you back the trigger pull weight adjuster all the way out, that's the top one in the front, you can use a small flat blade screw driver or a pick to get the old spring out. The old spring won't come out through the hole so you have to dig it out from the back side, but the new spring from Calhoon is much smaller in diameter and it'll go in through the hole.

    You're aware the 527 is a centerfire rifle, not a rimfire, yes?

    For what it's worth, you'll find much better information regarding small caliber stuff, including info about the CZ 527, over on saubier dot com than you will RF central.

    Lol , no , I was thinking Rimfire forum , but I guess it falls under small bore... If it's not a Rimfire then Rimfire Central will of course do you no good... But I will check out the other site , never been there and you can never have too much info...
    I have never owned a CZ product , but I know people love their Rimfire rifles and I have read a bunch on trigger fix's for them at Rimfire Central , I have 5 .22 and almost bought a CZ to try but just couldn't justify it... What caliber is it in..?

    I have a few 452's in .22lr. Triggers are very easy to work with except the detent ball, which can be replaced at ACE Hardware (which beats going through one's pooch poop looking for it.

    They chamber the CZ 527 in a variety of small caliber centerfire cartridges from 17 Hornet all the way up to 300 AAC Blackout. CZ makes a multitude of different 527 models but the two most popular models are the Varmint and American.
