Tula Toz .22 LR, hunting rifle review

S6301101

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.

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.
