Let you know in a day or two

I'm sure it will end up being closer to 50 bucks CAD by the time it gets here, but c'mon, give me a break here...you asked me to show you 25 bucks and I did Doc. ;)

Shipping wont be that much as I'm buying 3 of them.

Now unfortunately my rifle shipment was delayed last week but I do expect it Tue or Wed.

The ONLY chance I have of it being steel breech is if it is NOS in which case I will buy 5 more instantly, but i really doubt it will be, as you said.

Thats fine. They are a phenomenally accurate little rifle that is very quiet and easy to cock, can be shot indoors all day long without bothering anyone.

It's a very accurate little rifle and very enjoyable to shoot all day long.
Some guy here, did a little work on his rifle (shimed the piston, put better sights on it, small stuff) and he was hitting the 10 all day long. He was getting close to olympic shooting with his IZH-60. He was getting around 95/100 if I remember right.
I think we paid much more than that for our shipping.

Got it earlier today, just opened box, plastic just like my 61's. Not disappointed as that's what I sort of figured, but there was always that small chance :) I'll live.

This one was made September 24 2013. Came with the usual oiled paper and a cleaning rod, also wrapped.

Bolt seems to open upon cocking...Still playing around.

Doc, Tom Gaylord the Pyramid blogger also wrote that he knew a fellow who spent a lot of money having a. 10 meter Olympic stock made for his as it was freakishly accurate.

In any case, I'm sure out of the box it will be more accurate than I am.

As mentioned, I have been offered 2 of them to date. Although I could have bought them 10 times over, I felt 350 bucks was not worth it, so passed.

Glad you have a steel breech model and perhaps one day I'll come across one at a price I feel like paying :)

Yes the bolt opens up when you pull on the lever. It's a great little rifle.
Before you get your gas ram you can always shim the piston by cutting up an empty soda can and using the aluminium. Quite easy to do and improves the shooting experience and accuracy.

Ive done that to more than a few of my Chinese guns...may have learned it from you :)

The last hour or so I have been fooling around with it. Of course its only about 9 yards, but everything I've been putting thru it is one ragged hole with one or two flyers from me every 10 shots to wreck it....but for open sights I'll take it.

I cant even tell what it likes yet as I need more distance. Daisy pointed and flat nose, Crosman pointed and flat nose, JSB round nose, Meister's pistol flat nose...all of them make a nickel or little bigger sized sized hole. Really is hard to believe how accurate these little suckers are, all of mine are very good.

I mean, they look like they are put together out of cock-eyed Lego blocks, painted black barrel, plastic furniture, plastic sights, plastic trigger..oops, polymer......a dainty cocking lever and a spring from a BB gun....and all of the ones I own are FREAKISHLY accurate.

Gee, maybe there is something to this low velocity thing huh? :lol: Look at the Daisy Avanti 499 BB rifle...most accurate BB rifle going...and only 240fps.

It's really surprising when you know what they used to sell for. I think these guys really know how to make guns and make excellent barrels.

Yes, I thought I read somewhere they hammer forged the barrel, which in my opinion is better than say button rifling for example, although these days with modern machines all rifling is probably FAR better than it used to be...still, its a fantastic little gun and I'm very happy to own a few.

EDIT: ARK shows one in stock again by the way

7 shots 8 yards. One of best ever targets \ group with open sights, even at that short distance

First two upper left, then adjusted sights. Final five is the big hole. Center bull different rifle with pointed Crosman from earlier. That was Hatsan M25 w/redot. Took it out, fired one shot, put it away lol.

Gawd I love these little Baikal's :) :)

Thanks for taking the time to post the video. That FW sight looks killer. Helps that the guy can shoot too :)

One of my repeaters has a short unitized rail with a bug buster on it, but I'm not sure it's "quite" as accurate as this recent single shot is. Have to test more. Jezx made a nice barrel weight for that one.

I would certainly recommend anyone interested to snap them up, if you sell them.

Who knows when the supply is going to dry up. As mentioned, iirc, the inspectors stamp on my recently purchased one was September 2014.
