Winchester Gone Russian: Wildcat 22 (aka TOZ 78-12)



Log in to see fewer ads
I was browsing the Winchester Website for changes since the New Haven Plant closed. I noticed this:

The Wildcat is a live one. It may possibly be the best bolt action 22 value in history. The Winchester Wildcat 22 is crafted from world-wide sourcing under the top quality specifications of Winchester. Look closely and you'll see the kind of features that make a great little gun. But you won't really appreciate it fully until you take it to the range and experience the kind of accuracy that establishes the Wildcat as a true over-achiever. With correct loads and a little skill, you'll cover your groups at 25 yards with a dime, and a quarter will take you out to 50 yards.

21" Sporter weight barrel.
22 Long Rifle with semi-target chamber for top accuracy.
Polished bore and precision rifling.
Micro adjustable rear sight with fold-down design for full clearance when mounting a scope.
Classic Winchester details like checkered buttplate (with embossed Winchester crest) and a durable composite pistol grip cap.
Cut checkered hardwood stock with Featherweight styling right down to the Schnabel fore-end tip.
Three 10-round magazines and one 5-round magazine included - that's correct, four total.
Easily removable, field strippable bolt for easy maintenance.
Forward magazine release so the magazine pops right into your hand for easy retention.
Advanced trigger system offers safety and a lighter trigger pull for accuracy.
Does this rifle resemble the Small-Bore Hunting Carbines TOZ-78 or what

It resembles the TOZ-78, because that is what it is. based off of how well mt TOZ-78 shoots, I will buy one of these. I really like the nicer stock and the Americanized stock.

Its a handsome rifle, no two ways about it. I especially appreciate the changed sights - its Russian prototype has some issues with scopes and high forward sight.

I'm keeping the TOZ though.

Yep, they close their New Haven plant, import Russian firearms that aren't even their design. They've probably sold all the machine tools to make the 9422 to the Taurus so they can butcher a really well made rifle.

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?

I just wished Winchester would import the higher grade version of the TOZ 78. Rather than, just the low end model.

JSC "Tulsky oruzheiny zavod" has started the serial production and sale of new
modification of the popular small-bore carbine TOZ-78.

TOZ-78-05 and TOZ-78-06 are distinctive from other representatives of the particular
model range by extra heavy barrel and the absence of the open sight.

The aiming is performed by means of the optical sight, which is mounted on the "dove-tail" type base.

The model TOZ-78-06 has threading on the muzzle part of the barrel making it possible to use additional
muzzle devices.

Thanks to the excellent ballistic qualities of the carbine, achieved by application of the
extra heavy barrel, the carbine can be successfully used both for the amateur and professional
hunting, as well as for sport and high-accuracy shooting.

are located in front of the trigger. The front screw adjusts trigger pull, the rear one
trigger creep. The trigger mechanism is provided with a safety to prevent a shot when

No, but the theads are rather course. I've seen a few threads which mentioned 28tpi, but I have no idea if it is correct.

Man, I kinda wish my Toz 78 was a .22 Magnum like catalog shows above. I like that cartridge.

Russian Tula TOZ-78

A Google search got several hits, with only a few in English. This one looks interesting.

http://members.cox.net/cruffler/rimfires/toz.html

This Russian made .22 is quite a little gun. The trigger pull (adjustable) is one of the
best triggers I've ever felt, factory or custom. The gun is unique with the location of the safety
(lever on the side of the mag well) and the rear sights which are calibrated for 25m, 50m, 75m
and 100m. The sight resembles a small "paddlewheel" which can be rotated to the proper range
before firing.

Many folks have contacted me about getting a copy of the instruction manual for this gun.
I have put a copy of it on this server. You can download
it here.
(right click and "save as" to copy it to your hard drive for future reference.

It is in .PDF format (~215 kb) so you will need Adobe Acrobat to view the file.

USA Peep Sights for TOZ

One of the things I like about the toz78 is the hooded front sight.

It lines up nice with the Williams FPGR Peep sight I mounted on the receiver grooves.

Which peep is that?

What is the model of that williams peep?
What gun was it made for?
Like the set up. Can it be moved all the way to the rear of the receiver?
Would like to set up my Toz with this peep and see through rings for scope.

It's the Williams FPGR and it's made to fit grooved .22rimfire receivers.
It can't be moved back further because of the bolt path but you could get a WGRS-54 from williams or a NECG rimfire peep that does not hang out the side and sits over top of the receiver.

Great Information and good pictures, I've been trying to find a reference for peep sights for sometime ... with no luck - AOM22
