    I recently inherited a .22 bolt-action rifle of Soviet origin. I know that my grandfather traded it for some construction materials more than 30 years ago -- but that's all I know. It is a perfectly normal looking rifle with no distinguishing features.

    • The barrel and metal parts, apart from the bolt, are blued or darkened, and the stock is wood.
    • The bolt is stamped "4341"
    • The sight is adjustable in steps of "25" from to "100", although I don't know if these units are meters, yards, or some mysterious soviet unit. :)
    • Between the rear sight and the extraction port is a triangular logo containing a "T" inside what looks almost like a "@".
    • Underneath this mysterious rune the markings "T03-17" and "Made in the USSR" are clearly visible.
    • It takes a magazine, but I don't have one.
    It needs a good cleaning, and it's badly dinged and scratched, but it looks like a nice little plinking rifle -- if I could get hold of one or more suitable magazines.

    Can anyone tell me anything about this rifle? Is it possible to buy new mags for it? Is it possible to get a replacement stock for it?

    Check www.hoosiergunworks.com for a replacement magazine, I am fairly certain that they would have (or would beable to get) one for you.

    Tula Arms, eh? Thanks!

    Having had some more time to study it, I think that the stock is salvageable. But I might spring for a polymer stock, if such a thing exists.

    Heres a hang tag that was on my Vostok TOZ-12 rife. I received this when my step dad passed away. He did some copetitive shooting with the Canadian Military, Explains some of the french on the tag. For what its worth I love shooting my target 22, with its micrometer sights and super heavy barrel I get quite a few looks at the range. TOZ-17 49.95 Canadian when I dont know as there is no date on it.

    Had a TO3-17 given to me when I took an oldtimer for a boatride. Clip included. He was camped out next to the lake I commercial fish and wanted to see some parts of the lake he had heard about. He had some really good stories too.
    The 22 is usable with a normal cleaning.
    Shoots accurate but has a very long triggerpull with very stiff finish. If u don't expect it the shot gets ruined.
