Hey all,
I'm looking to pick up a new bolt-action 22LR rifle and I really want this gun, but it seems no online vendors offer it, and I live in Portland, OR where the selection at gun shops is pretty weak. After going on Tula Arms website it appears their American distributor no longer exists, so I'm not sure any are being imported at the moment. Anybody know where I could order one online? Or, if you live around Portland, is there anywhere you know of that carries these? I'm gonna hit the gun show in a couple of weeks and take a look, but I don't expect to find anything.

I believe that CDNN is selling it with the Winchester brand name on it for $169.00 right now.

Where To Find A NIB TOZ 78

I'd try the major gun auction sites.
And, at gun shows.

If you can't find a TOZ, you could do worse than a Zastava CZ99 (Yugoslavian, nothing to do with the Czech CZ).

You might try browsing through this guy's forum(he's a dealer), I've seen several Russian rimfires in there, and if there's nothing there, look through the whole surplusrifle.com forum.

Yup. The one with the PU scope on it looks... gorgeous. If I wasn't saving up for a Webley, man oh man it'd be mine.

hey!
Does anyone know where to get a COMPLETE user manual for a 78?
I got a manual but its missing a couple of pages from the middle which would appear to be the ones that cover the subject im interested in, namely adjusting the creep and pull on the trigger.
Cheers
Mark

Yeah thats the one i have already. missing a couple of pages in the middle.
any way i had a play with it today and boy did it make a difference!! It had the heaviest trigger I've personally used and when you looked at my groups I was consistently pulling them down about 1 inch!! Lightened up the trigger and hey presto no problem!!
