CZ's incredibly popular 527 Carbine now has a youth variant. Though the action and barrel stay the same, the Turkish Walnut stock has been shrunk in nearly every dimension. With a 12.75" length of pull, smaller pistol grip with tighter radius and a thinner forend, the Youth Carbine makes an ideal first deer rifle. Chambered in .223 and 7.62×39, both cartridges are more than capable of taking deer-sized game and deliver little felt recoil compared to many youth offerings on the market. Paired with our smooth micro-Mauser action and single set trigger, a standard Carbine stock can be added as the shooter grows, so its small size won't relegate it to the back of the safe a few years down the road.
