My Mini Mosin

Postby tommyt654 » Fri Mar 21, 2014 2:30 pm

Just p/u this TOZ 78-01 the other day at an auction for $111, Nice little shooter as well, 5 inch groups with my old eyes at 100yrds and steels. Will scope later in week after mounts get here with a vintage Unertl 4X Hawk I purchased from the same auction house for $5 and will provide a report on range performance then. Tommy

Not too bad for a small Tula built 22.cal,they got a little widespread at 100 yrds ,but still happy as the wind had begun to p/u a little bit

Nice shooting. And you got a really good deal on that gun. I predict better groups when you get a scope for it

Well that is scoped and that pretty good considering the ammo,CCI Blazer, might tighten up somewhat with match ammo. This was never designated as a Target rifle but shoots pretty darn good as is. I believe its about a 84 yr. model. Kinda hard to beat for the price I paid ($111) and with its Russian Tula lineage

That is too cool!!

I put together a rifle out of a Mossberg barreled action a couple years back... It was a Mossberg 42m(a). Originally built in 1943 or 1944. It doesn't have a serial number on it... and the ones sold to the civilian market never did.

Anyways, Mossberg made .22 trainers for the allies during WWII, and used German rimfire barrels brought into the United States in the early 1930's. How ironic... ;)

You can't find an over the counter .22 with a better barrel than .22 trainers. The closest you can get is a maker that uses barrels made overseas... like Kimber, or CZ. To get an equivalent quality barrel you would need to shell out some dough for a small-bore, or biathlon rifle made by some serious names.

Here is a pic of the rifle...

Here is a video I put together of shooting her at 200 yds.

Watch on youtube.com


I still need to fabricate a couple steel targets just for shooting her long range... but I've had too many projects going on.

You can read up on the full build here. http://surplusrifleforum.com/viewtopic. ... 5&t=121988

As for your groups, CCI Blazer is an accurate high-velocity .22 LR round, however it goes transonic about 80 yds. I used the same ammo at 50 yds and 100 yds with my rifle, and the same thing happened. Check out my thread, and you'll see that the 100 yd group is significantly bigger than the 50 yd group. If you go with a match or subsonic .22 then your bullets start out subsonic, and won't transition... your longer range accuracy will go way up!
