I dont know a thing about these.



Log in to see fewer ads
I know nothing about russian rifles except I do own a toz. Its a pretty accurate gun but does not compare to my cz. I was in a gun shop today talking to one of the salesmen and he asked me if I ever thought buying a russian gun. He showed me a couple with a straight pull bolt, it was pretty neat and he said they were accurate. As I have been checking out the posts, I see alot of bench rest style guns. What Iam looking for is more of a sporter stock, and accurate. I would mainly shoot targets but some squirrel hunting. But I do want something that will shoot as good or better as my cz 452. Any suggestions? Something that known to shoot good at 50yds or so. what models have sporter style stocks? Sorry for asking a question that you all probably already answered a thousand times.

Did it look something like this?

http://www.raacfirearms.com/Biathlon_7-2.htm

Do a search on "Biathlon Basic" in this forum, and I think you'll find that a lot of people love them. I do.

I know that people hunt with them--I shoot targets with mine. It's very accurate and has an excellent trigger, IMO.

Bi-7-2ko

For starters read some of the references under :
Sticky: BI-7-2 Basic
In particular: Biathlon Basic 7-2KO (BI-7-2KO) & Izhmash Sobol

I'd also look at the Sticky: Winchester Wildcat 22 (TOZ-78)

If your TOZ-78 is not shooting as well as your CZ, perhaps you should follow
_some basic procedures to extract the maximum accuracy potential from your rifle.

Ammunition selection ... try a variety of ammunition
_and do not exclude standard velocity selections - do not avoid milder ammo ... try it.
Check your rifle's bedding ... make sure the action is secure and barrel is free floating.

I have 2 CZ's & one BB and the accuracy is about the same but my BB responds
more with match grade ammo because of the match chamber.
The CZ's don't have match chambers.

BI-7-2KO vs Sobol

The Sobol rifle has a lighter barrel with magazine storage in the sporter styled stock.
The receiver of the Sobol rifle is grooved for telescopic sights.

The Biathlon Basic has a heavy barrel with a weaver rail and straight stock.
The BI-7-2KO at 7.7 pounds weighs about a pound more than the Sobol.

Are you sure about that weight? My Biathlon Basic with a Mueller APV is just a hair under 7.5 pounds. That's the weight limit for Sporterifle, and I've weighed it over and over again.

ok I see one sobol on gunbroker and no 7-2's, I was just looking for a price reference. I think the sobol would probably be best for me, do they both have match chambers? what's about the average cost for these rifles?

Sobol and BI-7-2KO Weights

Quoting RAA information.
Sobol Carbine ... Weight w/o Magazine or Accessories 6.6 lbs
BI-7-2KO Carbine ... Weight w/o Magazine or Accessories 7.7 lbs
On second look, it appears the BI-7-2KO Carbine weight data maybe reversed - 7.0 lbs.
Moreover, an older article lists the BI-7-2KO as lighter.
EAA’s Biathlon Basic .22 Accurate Out-of-the-Box
Quote:
Weight : 6.1 pounds
toivo ... thanks for pointing-out this discrepancy - aom22.
I'm embarrassed that I didn't notice this myself.

Don't be embarrassed, aom22--it was their mistake, not yours. You provide a lot of valuable information on here.

midwest swiss, you've got some serious high-comb action going on with that stock, not to mention the extra-long rail. Not to mention sling swivels and a leather sling. None of those things are made of feathers! There's your weight-gain right there.

Legion Sobol

country6220 ... take a look at the following thread and single post:
My 2nd Legion Sobol in Premire Oxide - aom22
Another Legion Sobol
If you're looking for an uncommon, semi-custom, accurate,
RU .22lr rifle ... the Legion Sobol maybe it.
If you can find one.
Receiver Marking & Documentation for 2nd Legion Sobol KO-10 Carbine

1st Group: 16.5mm (.650 in) 2nd Group: 8.5mm (.335 in) 3rd Group: 15mm (.591 in)

As far as I know all the Russian built .22Lr rifles have match chambers even the Toz 78.
I paid $320 for my BB 7-2KO in 05.
