Was snooping around on PA website and found this little thing:
https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Air_Venturi_TR5_Multi_Shot_Target_Air_Rifle/4682
Wonder if it's made in Russia and more important if it has the nice IZH barrel. Those were great entry level airguns.
Oh and don't click on the green version pics, it can't be unseen... it's not olive drab or some kind of camo green. You sure wouldn't lose it anywhere, maybe it glows in the dark? :lol:

Very cool. It looks exactly like a reskinned IZH 61. Air Venturi is known for remaking other manufacturer's guns, i.e. Gamo Compact pistol, so it wouldn't surprise me if they bought the rights to manufacture it or simply slapped their name on it.

some of the angles are wrong if it's a copy it's a bad one.

But yes I see the look of the Baikal izh60/61

Yup, seems like the plastic version of the 61. No question a majority of the parts other than the stock are very similar if not the same. Interesting comment from Ace. Looks like if in desperate need there will be a source for spare parts. LOP seems better on this version.

I hope it has a good barrel, if not I doubt it will sell. It will just be a fad. I think AirVenturi has more brains than that.

It appears to be a Chinese made Izh 61 clone. This is supposed to circumvent the ban of Russian firearm imports.

One major takeaway I read, adjustable 2 stage trigger. My 61 is single stage.

I think it's gonna be quite accurate, just like how the Daisy 953 is in accuracy compared to the 853.

lets hope your correct....but your comparing two rifles made by Daisy
this new one is not being made by Baikal...I don't doubt it will be accurate
heck lots of airguns are accurate, just at what distance ?
this would be a heck of a good review comparison when it comes out for someone that has both... :wink:
