Back in the day when the M16 was my constant companion ,I wished the mag. was twice as long. Days I would like to forget.I just don't understand why people bad mouth the hanging mag on the CZ.
Nothing is heard of the hundreds of other guns with mags sticking out the bottom. If you think the CZ is ugly, how about the AR 15/M16 or the M14?
If it bothers you that much, there are people that will trim that magazine to your liking.
I have three CZ 527's and that mag doesn't bother me one bit. At least it's easier to replace than my 10-22.
