Just a sign of the times . . .

. . . the cost of building in a foreign country is less than here. The TOZ 78 rifle is available for $130 right now. The only way Winchester can win is buy distribution rights and sell them as their own. I was lucky to score in the For Sale / Trade forum below - a fellow RFCer wanted to let his TOZ go for what I thought a reasonable price - $100. With 2 - 5 round and 2 - 10 round magazines (which between us girls look a bit flimsy, but so far - no problems with them at all). This was the standard 'blond' stocked Russian model.

Unless public is willing to buy $400 rifles vs. the foreign half priced models. CZs are priced less than American, but are well made. Whats a consumer to do?
