I recently added an Austrian made Tyrol Model 5022 5-shot bolt action rifle to my collection. I know very little about this little .22 and have failed to find any reference to it on the net or in my library. It was a little shabby when I collected it, but I have since stripped back the varnished stock to find that it is made of beautifully figured European walnut. I plan to refinish it in oil and reblue the barrel and fittings. It shoots accurately and has such high-end features as a spoon bolt handle, fine chequering one would expect to find on expensive custom rifles, a hooded front sight with removable blade and a finely machined dovetailed windage-adjustable rear sight that allows the rear sight to be moved about 12 inches back and forth in a channel along the barrel. I assume this is to allow ideal focussing. The entire sight can also be removed (when using a scope) by loosening a knurled-nut. Some shooting mates of European background claim it was manufactured in Austria as a competitor to the Anchutz. By the looks of it, it is not a target/competition rifle - just a well-made and attractive utility/bunny gun. I have owned many .22 rifles here in Australia since I was 16 and have never ever come across one before. There is a good chance they were never imported into Australia or the US and those in existence outside Europe may have been WW2 war trophies souvenired by occupation troops when the public was disarmed. A nice little rifle I would like to know more about. Anyone with any info on the Austrian Tyrol Model 5022?
