other products by IZH-Baikal
Things I liked: Don't hold the pellets in very well or hardly at all. The gun which I bought these mags for is a very good gun. but the mags aren't. Maybe there is an after market mag of maybe I should be using different pellets.
Things I would have changed: Make them better at holding in the pellets.
Things I liked: Very easy to load, don't have to worry about pellet placement, as the Baikal rifle inserts the pellets from this clip deep into the barrel. Yeah the pellets fit loosely, but just tilt the clip and rifle slightly forward when you load it into the gun and it is a no hassle easy to use clip. I bought 6 extra clips as the Baikal 61 is so fun and easy to shoot that you can easily get carried away. The accuracy of the Baikal is as great as everyone says and I think part of it is the way these clips take the pellets and how the rifle pushes the pellet down deep into the barrel from out of the clip. Stick with wadcutters or dome shaped pellets, which is what you should be using in the Baikal anyway as it is not suitable for hunting, only plinking and paper targets...Very accurate though. Any other shaped pellets tend to jam the gun. Yeah I know, I was preaching how not to use other pellets, but a few times I reached for the wrong tin and tried them anyway...Result: jammed pellet.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: The Baikal is easy to un-jam if you do accidentally double load the breach or jam a pellet. First try the cleaning rod they provide with the rifle to see if you can push it out without any troubles, sometimes the pellet falls right out. If it is jammed deeper, typically the pellet is near the trigger area of the gun and you simply need to unscrew the barrel after you take out the top screw on the top of the barrel. It is very easy to take the barrel off and then you just use a small drill bit to partially drill into the back of the pellet, try not to poke all the way though it, and simply pull the pellet out, if that does not work, just take a nice long thin deck screw and lightly twist it into the pellet and pull the pellet out. seriously, take like 4 minutes to do this, the barrel screws back on real easy, the Russians made this thing to last, very low maintenance gun.
Things I liked: Well made strong plastic
Things I would have changed: Price is high for an injection molded part.
