Thanks.. aom 22

I got my sling studs all figured out.
Took the OEM sling swivels apart & drilled them a little bigger so I can use
my quick change sling swivels.


That worked out very well...


I am about done with the rifle for a while, maybe touch up some of the bluing,
seal the inlet areas of the stock with some true-oil. Then just shoot her & see if the stock
bends & shifts my POI when I use the front sling as a hasty sling. I am going to give
the stock a few coats of true-oil down the road. (good winter project)
The rifle weighs in @ 6lbs with a full mag. & the scope.


I was going to hollow out the forearm of the stock & add some lead then fiber-glass it all in for weigh & strength.
Going to use the stock as is and see how she goes at 6lbs..... like my hunting rifles to weigh 7-8.5 lbs.

So far the rifle has been shooting shot for shot with my two CZ's.
The TOZ shoots the cheep ammo very very well..... as my CZ's do too...


This looks to be my fall hunting ammo....the Blazer shoots great in cool to cold weather.


Here is a target @ 50 yards I shot last Sun. with no wind flags.


I have been trying allot of different ammo in the "Red Head" to get a feel
of what she likes. I like what I see so far....she is a cheep date...
The Super TOZ is going be a dedicated small game rifle & will share that job with my CZ-Super Scout.


My TOZ got the same basic treatment as my $200.00 CZ-Scout ....thats my carbine blind rifle.

A little stock work.

Well I have been shooting this rifle all summer & started to shoot the RED HEAD
with out the bench rest & more prone, off sticks & unsupported for the last month or two.
I found that the rifle was hard to keep still at a total weight of 6lbs.


So i started thinking about giving the stock the lead weight treatment.
I went to my local Auto store & bough some lead stick on wheel weights like 2lbs of it....$12.00.
This started 2 weeks ago.
Took a Forstner bit & did some hogging out, finished off with some hand gouges & wood chisels.
This is the forearm of my stock.


I shoe horned about 1lb of lead wrapped with fiber-glass mesh then filled with
fiber-glass mixture.....should be very strong no flex with the use of a hasty sling.


Then I drilled some holes with a Forstner bit again in the butt of the stock & installed about 3/4 lbs of more lead to balance the rifle out.



Sealed up all the factory in-letting with true-oil.
Here is what the rifle weights in at now.....a fat 7-3/4lbs.



Just the way I like it...

The rifle shoots better at 7-3/4 lbs now.

Took the TOZ too the range last weekend to see if the lead treatment would do what I was looking for.
Did the job, it did..... allot more stable for hunting style shooting.



That was shot sitting on a camp chair & using shooting sticks.
Like this only with the TOZ..... Let me tell ya it is just one step above shooting with out the sticks.

Now this week I gave the rifle my woodland snake camo job.
Turned out great.


Now look at the above picture of the "Super TOZ" about 10' away from your computer screen.

Now it's official she is really a "Super TOZ" Small game rifle built my way on a budget.....for less than $200.00.
I do believe I will be using CCI Blazer ammo this fall.

The "Super TOZ" really loves shooting good off the the shelf local ammo & is just great in my book's.
The rifle shoots shot for shot against my two CZ's.

The only thing left would be too pick up some more magazines....I only have one 5 rounder.
This project was very rewarding, the only thing that I didn't get to do that I wanted was to shorten the barrel.

This rifle is very accurate, stock design is nice, very nice factory adjustable trigger (no need for a kit)
Magazine works nice & feeds live rnds & extracts fired rounds great, bolt very slick now two finger cycling & not very ammo picky.

Now I can just concentrate on hunting & not have to worry about scratching the stock.
Only thing now is to keep practice shooting for the big hunt in a few month's.

That turned out really nice.

Poor little tree rats will never know what hit them. Can't wait for the hunting reports and pictures.

Hey Swiss,
Now that I have one of these I'll be referring to your notes in this thread. I wasn't able to bring mine home today since I got a delay on the background check.

Where'd you get yours for less than $200? I don't even see any for sale, let alone that cheap!

There out there, I paid $130.00 & Charlotte just bough one for $100.00.
Where I live most people don't know anything about Russian & the CZ rifles & just
stay away from them....then they aren't hot sellers at gun shops & just sit there on the shelf.
