toz 78



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi , i live in France and i purchased, for a very good -european - price a nice carbine toz 78-04, delivered with 4 magazines (2X5 rounds and 2X10 rounds).
I fixed on it an sks rifle sling and a bushnell 3X9 -40 scope...good gun
here is the photograph and the one of the target, in a prone position at 50 meters.Only problem, the trigger is a little bit hard.The wood is beautiful, this is a typical russian gun : simple, reliable and cheap.This carbine (or its brother) is sold by winchester under the name of "wildcat".

Toz 78

marzy ... very nice looking TOZ 78.
Good set-up ... sling, scope and stock pad.
Could you post some photos without the stock being covered-up?

new shot

http://www.casimages.com/img.php?i=1...4127558862.jpg

hello, they way it was, while opening the box.In fact, i changed the sling, that one is an israeli one, i fixed a new one, an sks (chinese?) rifle sling (more rigid) for shooting in prone position.
I own a cz 452 varmint, terrible accuracy but very sensitive about the kind of ammo (brand etc) although the toz "eats" quite everything

Smile Toz 78:

Dear Marzy:
Have you looked at the bottom of the trigger-guard? On my Toz 78-01 there is a hole in that location that gives access to 2 small screws in front of the trigger. One controls trigger pull weight and the other creep. My Toz has the best trigger-pull of all my rifles and a 100 yard group of .78 inch with CCI Green Tag. If your Toz is like mine, you should be able to adjust and lighten the "hard" trigger pull using the adjustment screw.

If your trigger is adjustable (if it is you will see the pull weight adjustment screw on the top side of the trigger guard), then you can adjust the pull down to 10 newtons easily, and probably a little lower with care. It will take some careful disassembly and keeping track of parts, but the trigger mechanism/ housing is pretty straightforward as far as triggers go. If it is not the adjustable model of trigger, you may be able to lighten the pull by tinkering, replacing the pull weight spring and polishing the sear. Good luck!

TOZ078: Barrel Threaded for Suppressor

I noticed this about marzy's rifle the other day.
But, I didn't say anything ... envy - I guess.
His barrel is threaded for a suppressor.

It never fails to amaze me and cause me much consternation.
What the more restricted societies have available to them ... from the factory.
What we right to keep and bear arms Americans don't ... off-the-shelf silencers.
I'm dumbfounded.

Amen! And the same goes for distilled spirits. Make your own beer or wine here is fine but if you distill it's a crime without a special permit (tax stamp) and in europe they sell small home distillation units. Here you are a moonshiner and there it's nothing more than a hobby.

Wow, that's a bummer about the home brew tax. Some fella's I know make their own wine up here on a regular basis. Well, it's supposed to be wine anyways. They tend to up the octane in it significantly.

Silencers ... Distilled Spirits ... What a Combo

Well, I'm not sure this was my point.
However, on second thought ... you do have a point.

I never thought about the distilled spirits perspective.
But, I don't drink.

Hmm, I was looking at Toz 78's and couldn't find one without a threaded barrel

Most rifles here are available as a package, rifle, scope and silencer. The Savage MKII even comes fully supressed (with a ported barrel) and the Norinco JW15 will be available fully supressed this month.

On the other hand, bearing arms here is a privilege (much like driving a car), not a right.

And yes, my parents distill their own spirits (I don't drink enough to justify that sort of setup).

threaded barrel...and wine

Hi , suppressors are legal in France, this is the only law about guns which ,is less strict than in the us!Suppressors are forbidden for hunting but authorized for killing pest for official hunting (with game wardens).
Concerning wines, ...we have plenty! I stayed in california two month ago, your red wine is good too!
I'll post some more photos of my TOZ but this model has not adjustable trigger.
