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

I was browsing the Winchester Website for changes since the New Haven Plant closed. I noticed this:

The Winchester Wildcat 22 is crafted from world-wide sourcing under the top quality specifications of Winchester.

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

Small-Bore Hunting Carbines TOZ-78

They are intended for professional, amateur hunting and sporting. These simple and reliable carbines provide easy handling. Reloading is carried out manually by means of a sliding breech bolt. The drum rear-sight mechanism is adjusted for shooting at distances of 25, 50, 75 and 100 m. There is a closed front sight adjustable on vertical and horizontal lines. It is possible to mount an optical sight. There are trigger pull and trigger creep adjustments. The standard set of TOZ-78 includes an optical sight.
Models TOZ-78-05 and TOZ-78-06 have an extra heavy barrel; they are used only with an optical sight. An export version of models TOZ-78-04 and TOZ-78-06 is with twists on the muzzle part, which allow applying extra choke tubes.
Small-Bore Hunting Carbines TOZ-78, TOZ-78-01, TOZ-78-04

The stock and the fore-end are made of high-quality walnut or beech. The model of souvenir manufacture is decorated with a highly artistic hand engraving, inlay with precious metals, pearl and wood-carving.
