Tula Toz 78-01 is a .22 LR bolt action rifle manufactured by the Tula Arms, Russia. It is a small, light weight weapon that is quite accurate. I had been on the look out for an inexpensive rifle for plinking and for small game hunting. This weapon, serves both the purposes. And with a scope it is deadly accurate. Tula Arms is an old company that dates back to 1712, this means they have considerable experience in designing and making weapons. Here is a short review of this rifle.

The front end guard is checkered for good grip.
There’s checkering on the pistol grip too.
The (fixed) rear sight can be set from 25 M to 100 M by a rotary drum.
The front is adjustable for windage and elevation.
You can mount a scope on this one.
It has a safety. And screw for trigger adjustment.
The cheek rest. The butt plate is just average.
It is very easy to remove the bolt. It comes with 4 mags, 2 of 5 and 10 rounds capacity each, tools for sight adjustment and a user manual.
This target was shot from 25 M using iron sights. With a scope it is very accurate.
I bought this rifle for Rs 35,000. I think it offers good value for money considering its specs and features. I am a big fan of Russian weapons, as they are adequately priced, reliable and rugged. I do not know of any other rifle manufacturer that gives four magazines with a weapon. Even CZ gives just one. A good weapon for those who want to get in to rifle shooting or small game hunting.
