Just a plain-jane BIATHLON-7-2-KO BASIC as imported by Russian American Armory Company.

You will need to contact CFS an ask them your questions.
CFS customer service should be your point-of-contact.

If you are intersted in buying a BIATHLON-7-2-KO BASIC
it will not be difficult to locate one for sale - used or NIB.

Now a Legion Sobol ... that is an exclusive rifle.
Thanks for the advice. Just sent off an email to CenterfireSystems (CFS) with a few questions regarding warranty, return policy, and repairs. Suspect that I'll get referred to original importer RAAC.

As for purchasing a NIB Biathlon Basic .22LR, CenterfireSystems seems to have the best price. Used Biathlon .22LR's seem fairly scarce. Suspect that I'll purchase a Biathlon once I get a little more comfortable with warranty and repair details.

One question, if anyone is interested in answering, does the finish on the stock vary considerably? I've seen Biathlon Basic photos with both a light beech? stock as well as a stock that looks more like walnut. Personally, I strongly prefer the darker walnut stock. Not certain what CenterfireSystems is currently offering?
