Smile Turning my TOZ into Super TOZ 78-01:

March 1, 2012
Dear Midwest Swiss:
I bought a very good looking well boxed TOZ 78-01 mis-labelled as a TOZ 78-04 and a used weapon, but had no wear of any kind that this very experienced eye could discern in metal, wood, or butt-plate. I cleaned it thoroughly, solved the mystery of assembling its bolt, and made a nice custom carry strap for the small strap holders for hunting and summer biathlon. I happen to be something of a specialist with iron sights since 1949, and felt very well pleased with what the Russians had done with the simple front and rear sights. Smallest 100 yard group was with CCI Green Tag off the bench in quiet air- oddly .78", but it would group CCI Velocitor into 1-1.5" at that distance and ca. 3.5-4" over post at 6:00 at 200 meters. It has the most exquisite trigger pull, as is, of all my many .22 LR rifles and has proven deadly in the squirrel woods. In the one summer b. match I stumbled through at ca. 6 mph, I found it very easy to hit the large marks. The Army Capt., a lad of ca. 50, who was range officer said,"You sure won't win it on speed!" Later, when he checked score postings, he suddenly looked at me and said,"Who, in God's name, taught you to shoot like that!!!???" I answered,"Alvin York." That is who taught me the elements then dragooned my father,"You a Vet.? Teach this little rascal to shoot!" So my father, another WWI Vet, carried on the instruction with iron sights. Hence, even though I am old and use prescription lenses, the TOZ 78-01's sights are right for me. Cancer (cured) since then has slowed me to a walk. It is one that I like to take in the squirrel woods with my TOZ 78-01. Good Shooting to you.

Super TOZ is getting more Super

That's the deal, I just received a new un-inlet stock for my TOZ.
I called Boyd's and asked if I could get a un-inlet tacticool stock.....and was told
no way Jose

So I have been fallowing a RFCmember by the name of.....azguy
and his stock making threads.
https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...d.php?t=439526

Gave azguy a PM.
Two weeks later I received my un-inlet Black walnut tacticool stock.



This is where da trigger will be, I have small hands & short fingers.


Well I am going to take my time on this project, I am a happy camper.
The stock will be stored in a big plastic bag for now & sealed .

So if you have a Russian rifle you want to restock give .....azguy a pm.

Come on man lets get shooting....two nice rifles.

I am getting some tools lined up for the stock job.


New to me a X-Y cross vise for my drill press.


I also did a few play runs with a router bit in the drill press & turned the speed up " wide open"
The new cross vise may be helpful with the project.


I have to many irons in the fire this time of year in Mn. too go hog wild on the new stock project.

More wood shavings flying

Had some more fun hogging out the new stock today.
Some of the tools used.


Drill press & X-Y vise with an 5/8" router bit in action.
All in all I am just copying the original stock in-letting.


Here is the stripped down receiver & trigger mag well combo with a 10 rnd mag.


The hogging out is done....now only hand work & hand tools will be involved.

The receiver & barrel are close to a drop in fit......but not quite.
I am very pleased with the cheep $50.00 X-Y vise, did the job I asked it to do
This stock will have the receiver pillar & glass bedded...."fur sure"-"don't cha know"
So ya I am going to work on the receiver & barrel part of the stock project then the trigger mag. well assembly next.

Well Ya know, I'm poor. And I could sure use a light mill for wood and a drilling vise. And Northern is 10 miles from here.
So I guess the writing is on the wall.

Coming a long

Well I got the action to fit in the stock fine.
The trigger location is very nice now, and this dictated where the two receiver hold down screw would be.
Its to bad some of the receiver is sticking out the back a little bit...."O well"


Here is the bottom, trigger magazine assembly.


I installed two stainless steel pillars then glass bedded the action & the first 1" of the barrel.


She is coming along fine so far.....Swiss
