Anyone Heard of the CZ-527 Carbine? Check it out!
The CZ-527 is a bolt-action rifle chambered in 7.62x39, has a five-round detachable magazine, and possibly is the most accurate thing I've ever laid hands upon.
It was reliable for me despite having used as cheap as possible ammunition I could get my hands on. Accuracy was top-notch as well, with me getting 1-inch groups at 100 yards. The target trigger is awesome too. What you do is you push slightly forward on the trigger, and it requires a simple press to make it shoot. You have to manually set it each time for that too, so don't worry about it just going off.
Why do I think its a good rifle for a zombie apocalypse?
Namely because you can carry more ammunition for it (.308 isn't exactly known for being light), it will always work for you, and the sights almost make it so you don't even need a scope. All of these lend themselves well to the zombie apocalypse.
Well, I just wanted to let the community know about it. Almost no one I've talked to has heard of it, which is a shame because it is just so great.

Mosin Nagant 7.62x54
In my opinion, the Mosin Nagant and other Bolt action rifles have no use in the zombie defense field. If you have enough time to get an accurate shot with a large rifle, you can get away. But! The rifle itself is a nice weapon. They're very cheap and pretty reliable. Also quite accurate. It's also very easy to clean and disassemble. You can also easily turn it into a grenade launcher with a 2liter coke bottle and some blank cartridges. It's a good gun for hunting but not for protection. It would be good to have to get food though.

The Mauser Kar98k
I've mentioned this in a couple places on here, but I've 'recently' acquired a Mauser Kar98k, '44 Kriegsmodell in 7.92x57mm. All the parts' numbers match, and it's not a crappy Mitchell's Mauser, this one has been places and has ventilated many a Commie in the dying days of the Third Reich.
I made this thread to see how many ZSDW users have Mausers, what they think of them [their design, ability, ect, ect.] and their possible role[s] on Z-day and beyond.
I'm lookin' forward to your guys' input!

So, I haven't had a chance to fire his round(.338 Lapua Magnum), but I'd like to know what others think. Will it gain in popularity enough to be worthy of consideration for a long-range engagement weapon? It's certainly powerful enough, but do you think that it might become more mass-produced and more rifles might be chambered for it? I think not, because it's not an ideal hunting round, and that's what most civilian rifles are for. It's a military round. I like the Desert Tactical Arms bullpup and the Sako TRG-42, or at least the cosmetics.
