Well, I generally stay away from the local pawn shops because the people there are snobs. They also seem hell-bent on overcharging.

when you get around to removing the extractors from the bolt, I would go ahead and check the headspace. I was having light primer strikes with my wildcat and found that my headspace was over .050". I had to make a new thrust bushing that was .006" thicker. no problems ever since. you may not notice a difference but it may improve reliability in the future.

Thanks for the heads up.

I am not going to mess with the extractors they seem to be working fine.
No bullet shaving or nothing, the shell holder could use a little tuning the ejecting
the empty fired rounds is a little weak....but looks to be more trouble then its worth.
I have shot some home grown Russian ammo threw the "Super TOZ"
This target was shot in April & was to cold for the ammo.


I have found that all my Russian ammo shoots the best if the temp. is above 60*
The hotter it is the better it shoots.




I chrongraphed the Vostok ammo two weeks ago & had an 10-shot Vel Avg. of 1038 FPS with a ES of 29.36 FPS & the temp. was 80*
If your .22 rifle can function shooting Russian Steel cased ammo.....thats the ultimate test there is for firring pin strike and extraction.
The " Super TOZ" eats the home grown Russian ammo like candy.....

Here ya go....the range report.
In early Oct. I made sure the TOZ was shooting strait for it's 1st hunt.
The Super TOZ has an BSA 2-7X32MM AO Air rifle scope with Warne 7.3 Med. rings.


You could say the TOZ likes CCI Std. Vel ammo


Two weeks later I took her out for a nice fall day hunt.
Ill let the pictures tell the story.



One was shot @ about 15 ft, the rest 25-50 yards.
Can you say....Super TOZ....

I was using some CCI Std. Vel. with the bullets made into small game bullets. (semi-wad cutters)


Found a good lot # of them locally last spring (bough 1/2 a case)
I took my Chrono-graph out in sept. to see if it could give me a clue why they were so good.


Kind of interesting results, the vel. was 1020 fps with a low Vel. spread of 30 fps. (The advertised Vel. is 1070 FPS)
They shoot 1/2" low at 50 yards with a sight in at 25 yards in the Super TOZ.
Perfect where I squirrel hunt....
Thanks....Charlotte

Camo Pattern ... Original Design? ... Source of Inspiration

Midwest Swiss ... I sure do like the camo pattern on your rifle.
I mean ... I love it - gorgeous.

Could you tell us a little about the camo pattern?
Was this an original design or were you inspired by another source?

My understanding is squirrels, for the most part. see in black, white
and shades of gray.
So, considering this, could you post a black & white photo of your rifle?

Here ya go black & white.



Yes the camo is of my design.
I was really big into turkey hunting & are not color blind.
I did allot of research on camo....specially WW-1 & some WW-2 on the military camo research.
It is really mind boggling to come up with a pattern that works
where you hunt verses what you think looks good to your eyes.
Like if you camo your stock that looks just great from 10 ft away but from 10-50 yards away would still look like a rifle.
So spaced colors of with the color of your hunting area with the black shadow lines is better for longer distance.
And in mother nature there is rarely strait vertical & horizontal lines.
I also pheasant hunt with .22 rifles & my camo pattern is really for that style of hunting. Most bird are not color blind.
Thats the camo I came up with in my research.......I could go on & on about camo.
Look at black & gray tabby stripped house cats....the wild cats as predators just amazes me with there camo color & snakes also.
See how nice my CZ blends in.


Just keep in mind that I like to go over the top with my hunting .22 rifles.
I conceder it all part of the hunt & fun to be as good as you can be...
to put the odds in my favor on the hunt.
I would never paint a nice figured wood stock.

Front sight is gone....now

I finally got around too take off the ugly frnt. sight.
Boy "O" boy that took some doing to get that off....BFH didn't work.
Had to use a cut-off wheel on my Dremel & make a relief cut then spread it with a screw driver.....
I then took the rifle to my machinist friend to have a collier made out of mild steel.
The three grooves are for O-rings.


Then cold blued the collier & epoxy glued that baby onto the barrel.



Now I have to test the "Super TOZ" out & play with the O-rings....
Looks much better now that the ugly sight is gone...


Its kind of hard to believe at one time I had only one magazine for the TOZ now I have them coming out of my ears......
Truly think I am done with the "Super TOZ" small game killing machine.

Shot the "Super TOZ" today 4-2-11

Darn it all Skjold looking at that picture.....now I wish in a way things didn't turn out. LOL
But the TOZ is still a shooting fool.....
I tried out some new too me ammo, Win. Sub-Sonic 40gr. Hp & it shoots pretty
good but not as good as this magic lot # of CCI Std. Vel.
Warm up targets.


The match target for one of the fun match's here on RFC shot with CCI Std V...darn another 100-4X.


I also shot one of the targets with the Win. Sub-Sonic ammo & the score was 96-1X good enough for hunting.
Skjold it is on my list to visit my ancestral homeland Germany & Switzerland before I take my dirt nap 6Ft. underground....
