Unfortunately, I don't have more photos from that show about the BIATHLON.

You may enjoy the following photos about the "Arms and Hunting 2008" show at the official site: http://www.armsandhunting.ru/eng/ima...2008/index.htm

And on this blog: http://vitalykuzmin.net/?q=node/112

Try the software Rosetta Stone, my son has used it to learn German, and it's great. Should be really easy to touch-up on your Russian/Slav.

Well,

Here ya go:

The Klimovsk ammo plant has re-labled their Biathlon ammo to "CHESS".

Here's the translated website for those who can't read Russian.
http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kspz.ru%2Fproduction% 2Fcartridges%2Fsmallkaliber%2F&sl=ru&tl=en&hl=en&i e=UTF-8

Hey Swiss....makes ya wanna cry seeing all that hard to get ammo again doesn't it?

OK...OK...enough of the sobbing....someone get Swiss some tissues so he can dry his eyes.

Even though, they (Klimovsk) say this is the "official" cartridge, the grape vine says that the official ammo is actually the updated Olimp-R.

Is it? Don't know and we may never know unless we actually get a chance to talk to a Russian shooter who is willing to talk freely.

I sent an E-mail to the Russian Shooting Union to see if they can shed any light on the situation. Not only the ammunition but a little more info on the "CHESS".

Not that I'll get an answer but, "One never knows if one never tries."

Scott

Question Anyone know of a reasonably priced Biathlon air-rifle trainer?

Anyone know of a reasonably priced ($100 range) Biathlon air-rifle trainer?

I know that Izhmash makes some very nice air rifles, but the only one I saw that was set up for Biathlon use was from Air Arms and about $1150 at pyramid air.

http://www.pyramydair.com/p/Air-Arms...I-Athlon.shtml

It would be nice to have something to practice offhand shooting with in the garage, with aperture sights.

The closest thing you will find to that price point is the Daisy Powerline 953. Pyramyd Air sells it for $72. Once you add the sights, either purchased from Pyramyd Air or Daisy directly ( <- better prices and customer service), you can have something which looks like this:



Here are your links for shopping:
Daisy Powerline 953, $71.95
http://www.pyramydair.com/cgi-bin/model.pl?model_id=585
Rear sight,

Parts to buy from Daisy: (800) 643-3458
#5996 Avanti Rear Sight, $35
#169816-000 front sight globe assembly 953/753/XS40, $5.00 (This sight takes the standard Lyman/Anschutz inserts)
#163119-000 - 5 shot clip 853C/953 (5 pk), $2.95

Total minus taxes and shipping is $114.90

The length of pull out of the box is 12". I added a 1.5" section of Chechen to give me the correct LOP and feel to the rifle.

Thanks for all the information on the Biathlon. My wife, kids and I have just gotten into x country skiing this year. The girls are young but they love to go out on their little starter skis.

I would love to get them into Biathlon when they are bigger.

Thanks again for the info.

Jamie

BIATHLON MODEL 360 S2

Quote:
- .22 LR cal., biathlon competition rifle featuring unique pistol grip operated rapid fire action,
includes 5 mags., aperture sights, snow guards, and black stock. Importation disc. 1999
ANSCHÜTZ: Biathlon - Winter Sports
Quote:
To reduce the disadvantages of a lateral toggle action the former GDR
and Federal Republic of Germany developed a so-called pistol grip repeater.

Repeating was carried out there by tilting the pistol grip axially to the barrel axis.
With this system the rifle did not leave the center axis by loading but there was the danger
that the tilting of the pistol grip would result in transferred motion on the butt plate
and thus on the shoulder of the shooter which made aiming difficult after repeating.

Only a few of this pistol grip repeaters were manufactured
and they also vanished from the market.
Lever action biathalon rifle?
