There are some Zastava LB22 rifles available now. For $202 at R&R Arms.

They are a light sporter type rifle and would require quite a bit of work to get to a usable level.

However, the one we have is reasonably accurate and I'm going to make a heavier stock for it.

It does not have a left side extractor so I had some failures to eject because I didn't work the bolt smartly. But it has potential.

I'll post up a video of me shooting it after I do some editing

So I've come across this rifle. How does this compare and is this something that I can drop into an ESA stock? Is this a good price? I've seen some similar at three times this price.

That is the same action as the Izzy biathlon rifles. I think the barrel may be shorter. As you can see it has no sights and the dovetail is a slightly different size than the Anschutz. The front sight is more of a problem than the rear and you should be able to find ways to make it work either through Altius Guns or Nordic Marksman. ESA inlets their stocks for the Izzy, but I don't know if the action screws on the biathlon basic are the same. Contact them.
Cheers, PCW

It won't drop in per say. You will have to hog out the front for the barrel and trigger guard for it to fit. But once you remove material, the action screws line up without any issues.

So, today I'm looking for a .380 bolt action on the clearanc rifle rack at Cabela's and I find this rifle sitting there. It's the Savage MK II FSS, with open sights. I was just wondering if this would transform into a decent biathlon rifle. It's too light as it sits with a synthetic stock at about 5.5 lbs, but with a new stock, possibly one from Eastern Sierra would this work? I assume it would drop into another stock too if not an ESA, but wonder about adding peep sights. Would this require gunsmithing to drill and tap any holes? Does the stainless barrel make it any harder, no pun intended. It's selling for $140 which seems like a pretty good deal as a standalone target rifle to go plinking with if it's not worth the transformation.

so, i found this stock. i finally got around to doing my first biathlon race. my assumption is for club competition i don't see the point in getting a rifle more then $500, but realistically don't think I'll get what i need under $100. I thought about a couple options. One was the Savage Mark II TR here http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/model/MARKIITR, but would have to add sites. i'm not sure if this rifle is threaded for peep sites or would have to get it machined, costing more money.

My second option is this one that someone posted earlier, and what I've had my eye on for quite some time. I would also be looking to add this Boyds stock and of course have to fit a harness to it, but don't anticipate it being too difficult.
I just don't see the point in buying a competition specific rifle and spending over $3000 for just a few club races. Any thoughts on this setup or any other problems or snags I could anticipate to modify this. I'd have to research it more, but so far I read the stock should pair up with no additional hardware or tinkering. I'm hoping it's just a bolt on stock like they advertise.
