Your gun may be marked IZH-53M or MP-53M and may have any one of these mfr names: IZH, IZH-Baikal or Baikal. They all come from the same plant and are manufactured to the same specs. The guns are identical.

This handy Russian breakbarrel pistol will keep you shooting for hours! The light cocking effort is just the beginning of the many great features in this bargain-priced airgun.

The molded plastic stock has an ambidextrous grip, so everyone can shoot it equally well. The rear sight is adjustable, making it easier to quickly home in on your targets. The rifled steel barrel is hammer-forged and quite accurate! To keep fingers safe during loading, it has an anti-beartrap mechanism to prevent accidental closing before you're done loading. In fact, if you try to shoot the gun before the barrel is completely back into the correct position, it won't shoot.

This pistol is ideal for plinking, shooting targets and spinners, and all-day fun.

Things I liked:

Hi all. Got the gun this morning. VERY FIRST SHOT the rear sight went sailing across to the other side of the room where the cat was watching from. He brought it back to me... he thought we were playing FETCH again, which he will do ALL DAY and wear my arm out! Any who, nothing was BROKEN, it just was NOT fastened down the way it should of been. Again, nothing broke, but I tell ya', the rear sight is one lousy piece of... well, you know. It has WAY too much wiggle, so it will not HOLD the centering. I truly believe that if this pistol had a decent REAR sight, it would be a tack driver at 20 feet or less. Using some thin plastic shims, I got the thing to not wiggle so much, and I was getting nickle sized patters at 10 meters, and at 20 feet, one-on-top-of-the-other... WAY NICE! Oh, the cocking is GREAT... no effort for me. Umm_ oh, I love the way the trigger breaks for me. I must of lucked out_ very little creep if any... and so short to the back wall, then SNAP - GLASS!

Things I would have changed:

I would of given five stars across except for that darn rear sight. But, once sighted in where you want it, if you can tighten it up without ruining the centering, then you WILL get tight groups out to 10 meters or so, and at 20 feet - - FAH-GET-AH-BAUGHT-IT!!! Yea, except for that sight, FIVE STARS.

What others should know:

YES THERE IS SOMETHING YOU MUST REMEMBER! Before that first shot, be sure the rear sight is tightened securely. The one screw on the BACK of the rear sight tightens to keep the WINDAGE section from flying out. It sort of acts like a SET-SCREW, but I do not believe it is hardened like a real set-screw, for the purpose of holding something secure would be. So be sure not to torque it too much. Oh, you will see what LOOKS like a small hex screw going up into the rear of the elevation adjustment. That is a SPRING meant to give you the little clicks when adjusting elevation.

Things I liked:

The accuracy, weight, and overall quality are excellent for the price. It's easy to cock, and is well balanced. The rear sight has extremely fine detents, so getting a perfect center is easy.

Things I would have changed:

I think the trigger design on this pistol needs an adjusting screw. The length of the first stage pull is very long and uneven. At times it would move almost effortlessly, and at other times it was rough.

What others should know:

It is important to remove the action from the stock and clean and lube everything. It looks like the factory sets these up for long term storage. All the grease should be removed and the proper oils used. The bore needs to be cleaned as well. After doing that this pistol performs well. Mine is extremely accurate because I polished the trigger sear, and installed an adjuster. It is possible to get a true hair trigger on this gun. I am able to adjust it for a perfect release. I have read other reviews that complain about the sights. Any problems with them are remedied by cleaning and lubing.
