Nice rifle.
Accuracy should be very good. The scope should be 2.5X20.
This rifle was issued to the professional hunters in Siberia. They didn't hunt squirrel for meat like here in US so, the eye shots were very common to save the pelts.
This particular specimen made in 1974, before the era of the pressed checkering and Bakelite butt plates.

Here is the year of manufacturing table for the TOZ guns:

Д - 1969
Е - 1968
Е - 1969
Е - 1970
К - 1971
М - 1972
Н - 1973
Р -1974
С -1975
Т -1976
И - 1977
Ф -1978
Х -1979, (1980?)
Я -1980
АА -1981
АБ -1982
АВ - 1983?

Cyrillic letter is usually the first letter of the serial number rolled onto the action, bolts have just the numbers. Mags are always marked with electric pencil.
