Soviet tula mts-12-1....pic hvy



Log in to see fewer ads
new to me...got this from TUNERED and what a fine rifle it seems to be....with all the available info ive found from this site and others....this is the mts-12-1 and not the mts-12......mts-12 dates from 1949-1959......mts-12-1 dates from 1960 - about 1970............mts-12-1 had walnut stock,different rear sight apeture location and a different trigger group that would allow you to have 1/2-6 oz pull and/or by turning a screw you could then go from 3-5 pounds.....very unique set-up............trigger will easily adjust down to LESS THAN 1/2 OUNCE.....there were several times i thought my lyman digital pull was broken because it simply wouldnt register when the trigger broke....THATS CRAZY LIGHT.....which explains why they put a finger rest on this rifle for the trigger finger....there is no pulling or squeezing this thing.....its a mere touch that fires it.....you basically have your trigger finger in the finger rest{because you certainly cant rest it on the trigger blade}and then ever so gently slide your finger inward till contact is made with it and it fires......a jewel 2 oz trigger is HEAVY compared to this thing.....the trigger blade and finger rest are adjustable for and aft to suit the shooter.....there is no take-up or overtravel at all....absolutely the finest trigger ive ever seen....another thing about this trigger group...with bolt out of rifle you can practice dry-fire all you want with no harm to anything....the reciever and bbl are massive....the bolt stop and bolt release function are controlled by one lever that simply swings outward....it is pillared and bedded and held with 2 very large action screws.....the rear sight has a knurled knob that allows you to lock it into place once elevation is set...also adjustable for eye relief fore and aft....and the inner portion of the apeture is threaded to accept appetures such as the merit disc,anschutz,gehman and parker hale with the appropriate adapter....the front sight will accept the 16.1 mm clear inserts for a parker hale sight....the bolt has 4 lugs and the firing pin reminds me alot of the suhl pin with the cams...i do think that there was a curse put on this rifle though....since ive had it....ive had no real time to play with it,had a match i was going to shoot it in but got rained out and am still recovering from flu bug ....lol....but from what lil bit i did shoot it....its a bad boy.....sick as all get out and couldnt stand it....told mamma i was gonna brave the cold and take 5 bullets and rifle out to bench and then call it quits as i was feeling terrible.....had 5 bullets....shot 2 as foulers/warmers and the next 3 were in a wad the size of a pencil eraser.....shot at 50 yards,bipod,weaver 36,sk pistol match.........looking forward to feelin better and having some time to play.....

Nice write up there.
It's hard to believe that rifle was designed by a blind man.
Give us some more range reporting when the Gypsy curse has been lifted.
Looks to be a shooter.

which explains why they put a finger rest on this rifle for the trigger finger....
there is no pulling or squeezing this thing.....
its a mere touch that fires it....
WOW ... very impressive - aom22.

Look at Fig.13. Rifle MP-12 and Fig.18. Rifle MP -12-3.
The images may show how the original stocks looked like.
