IZH Baikal

See manual

Your gun may be marked with any one of these mfr names: IZH, IZH-Baikal or Baikal. The IZH 46M may be marked as an MP-46M or IZH-46M. There's no difference between these guns. Only the markings are different. They come from the same plant and are manufactured to the same specs. The guns are identical.

The lefthand model has lefthand grips. The trigger is still oriented/slanted for righthanded shooters and cannot be canted to the opposite side for lefthanded shooters. Buy our LH trigger by searching for AV-IZH46MTA or Air Venturi IZH 46M Upgraded....

Things I liked:

Simple to use, no cylinders to fill or CO2 to purchase, Easy to operate. Acurate. Grips can be easily carved or padded to fit your hand.

Things I would have changed:

I love mine. Until I try a higher model competition pistol this is the best I have ever shot.

What others should know:

Some recommend storing it with the breech open. I don't.

Things I liked:

I shoot this downstairs just about every day. It is great, smooth, and very, very accurate. It will outshoot you every time. It will shoot almost any pellet with accuracy beyond belief.

Things I would have changed:

If there is something I would change I haven't found it yet, and I have been shooting this one for about 4 years

What others should know:

Buy it, you can't go wrong with this gun.

Things I liked:

This is an extremely accurate target pistol. I have not chronographed any pellets yet, but around 500 fps seems reasonable. I've tried several pellets ranging from Daisy wadcutters through RWS R10's light and heavy. Best accuracy so far has been with RWS Diablo Basics followed by Champions Choice Competition (4.50 mm head). I've shot a few of the lighter JSB and H&N match pellets, and Crosman HP and Crosman pointed pellets. The Crosman pointed hunting pellets do very well for the price. I installed an Air Venturi scope mount and a Bushnell TRS25 red dot sight to see what the gun can do. Shooting off a bag at 50 feet, even with my 60 year old eyes, I'm shooting 3/8" five shot groups with the RWS Diablo Basics and a little larger with the Champions Choice Competition. Even the Crosman pointed hunting shoot 5 in less than a 1/2" at 50 ft. At 75 feet, the RWS Diablo Basics are shooting 5 shot groups around 1/2" but print 3/4" low for a 50 foot zero. I have the trigger set at 4 oz's.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing on the gun. It would be nice if extra grips were available as I would like to fit a set to my hand, but don't want to carve on the only set I have.

What others should know:

Gun comes with a spare set of seals, cleaning rod, combo disassembly tool, pin punch, and varying width front sights. Schematic and disassembly instructions are a little sparse in the documentation. Two sets of instructions are provided (one from IZH and the second from Air Venturi). No safety on the gun either. Trigger is canted to the right for a right-handed shooter. Pyramid offers a trigger upgrade that will help left- handed guys. It would be vary easy to accidentally discharge the gun as the trigger can be set so light, so would not advise handing it loaded to another shooter. It can be dry fired too. Mine came with beech grips and appear to be oil finished. Rear sight can be removed and flipped over to get a more narrow rear notch.

  • Ralph from USA asked:

    I am looking to purchase a precision air pistol, but would like to be able to put a heavy trigger on it (on the order of #3.5) to keep it in line with my bullseye pistols. How heavy can this trigger be adjusted?

    • Kent from USA answered:

      Loading up this trigger defeats the purpose of this pistol. its not a bullseye pistol it is for 10m match. if you're trying to emulate your 1911 or 38 super with this gun you will be disappointed. 2 different animals. a better choice would be the Weihrauch HW 75 or the Gamo compact target pistol imho.

    • Mike from USA answered:

      The specifications say 3.9 to 9.8 Newtons, or roughly 0.9 to 2.2 pounds.

    • Tyler Patner from USA answered:

      It is adjustable. Getting up to the 3.5# mark should not be too hard. I would imagine that would be well within the range of adjustment
