    You may be able to find the Winchester Wildcat for that as well.

    Ive recently gotten a wildcat and really enjoy it and I think its a pretty good deal if you can find one on sale.

    No, stay away for the damn relabeled Russian rifle and

    AKA winchester "wildcat"

    Its a $100 cheaper, has the adjustable trigger, flip site, hooded target site and longer stock. You can upgrade to those on a wildcat... and pay more, or buy russian and not relabeled russian

    While I don't have access to it right now, I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of my Marlin. It was about 120 USD two years ago.

    The Tula may have a cheaper list price, however you are much more likely to find the Winchester on sale. I paid $99 for mine new. The rifles are the same (essentially) and either will give great service.

    I just picked up a Marlin 981T recently and finally got to the range with it last Friday. Shot great. I like the tube magazine that can take shorts, longs or long rifles. Holds 17 long rifles. It's also easy to use as a single shot. Great rifle for around $200 new.

    Around $200 you can get a good deal on older, USA made .22 rifles. Carefully check out the used guns. You should lots of choices in a sturdy bolt-action for that.

    I would look at a used marlin 80 or 81 series, they are 75 years old now; any of the old ones, came with a variety of woods, some with peep sites-the dl versions, and they could shoot short, long, or long rifles. Same with the older verision model 25's. if not that, look for a russian Izhmash Biathlon basic; straight pull bolt, that is very reliable, and Olympic accurate.
    also look for a new Remmy model 5, or any old remmy bolt action, should be good.

    +1 I love my toz 78-3 Its very accurate, feeds anything, and absolutely loves Federal bulk pack (about 1/2" - 3/4" groups at 50 yards) This plus an adjustable trigger (set nice and crisp) make it a hell of a deal for the $100-150 they sell for.
  13. Which distributors have actual Toz's?

    TNgun was for a while, now think sswaffenduech or something picked up the contract, you can actually google tula and search for their US distributor.

    I would look for a good used gun. I picked up a Glenfield model 25 bolt action at a pawn shop for $55 and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Great shooter and it was in very nice condition too. Deals are out there - no need to spend $200 on a new one unless you just want to.

    I agree................and with winter coming on I enjoy having an old rifle as a project gun.

    thanks for all the help. i am really liking the idea of a tube fed bolt gun. i think i will shop around and go used.

    remember, if you cannot find it used, as in the older marlin 81's, get a new 81, now called a 981...

    CDNN has the Winchester Wildcat for $170 and the heavy barreled version of the same for $199. I bought one of each last week.
