Don't forget to click on the AMMO link for a list of recommended pellets. Check the ACCESSORIES link for red dots and appropriate mounts, fun targets and safety gear you'll need.

Your gun may be marked IZH-61 or MP-61 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.

Good things come in small packages, and the Russian-made IZH 61 is no exception!

This repeating air rifle is so much fun to shoot, you'll definitely have a tough time putting it down. A spring-powered gun, the IZH 61 is easy to cock and can be used by adults and youngsters (with adult supervision).

The trigger is adjustable for length of pull. The synthetic stock is adjustable for length (31" to 33"). The rear sight is a fully adjustable notch. The front sight is hooded. Load five pellets into the removable clip (2 clips included), insert it, cock the sidelever and start having fun!

You can add a red dot sight on the 11mm dovetails to get even more accuracy from this rifle. Speaking of probably won't outgrow the potential of this gun!

Includes owner's manual.

Things I liked:

This is an excellent, easy to use, no hassle, fun plinking rifle that also happens to be very accurate, and I mean way more accurate than what you would expect at this price range. It has a rugged and simplistic form to it that is very typical of Russian utilitarian design. It is both ugly and elegant at the same time. Very easy to cock and extremely simple to aim and shoot and also whisper quiet, the targets make more noise being hit than the rifle itself, no louder than a staple gun. Light weight and even more deadly accurate after I put the exact scope and mount used on the Pyramyd Air video of this rifle. Seems to work well with a wide variety of mid priced pellets, all in the wadcutter category. Crossman competition & RWS hobby worked very well in mine. Great 10 meter rifle, half inch groups achievable at this range. Kept wondering where my pellets were going until I realized they were going in the same target holes...This gun is a little quirky but well worth every penny.

Things I would have changed:

This rifle has a small composite 11mm dovetail that is only 2.5 inches long, you must use the exact adaptor mount shown in the video to get a solid foundation for a scope or red dot. The iron sights were fine after adjusting, but my vision is not what it used to be, so I wanted to put that bug buster scope on mine, and once I used the right adaptor mount, it worked great. There is no problem with the clips at all, they are easy to load and work great if you simply tilt the rifle forward when loading. My only slight issue with this gun is that you have to be able to pay attention to your 5 shots as it is easy to accidentally dry fire the gun if you loose your count or get distracted, and that dry firing is very bad for this gun (Could lead to ruining the seals/spring etc).

What others should know:

The adaptor for a scope or red dot is this one: BKL-568MB [BKL 3/8" or 11mm Dovetail...] * 3/8" or 11 mm dovetail to Weaver adapter (rail accepts Weaver mounts) * 4" long *...The spot where you mount this adaptor on the Baikal is only 2.5 inches long, so this adaptor overhangs a little, but you will need overhang & the 6 screws to tighten this down enough & keep your scope in place on this plastic Russian 11 mm dovetail. Shoots great indoors in the cold & is super quiet. You end up loving the simple design and rugged accuracy of this gun, especially when your targets are easily dispatched by this gun's great barrel. I found a light hold while standing & almost no hold bag rested produced very accurate shots. The accuracy can change based on holding in different spots, best to choose your hold & technique & then dial it in from there...The side cocking was at first a concern of mine, since I had no other guns like that, but it turns out I like that feature the most, very easy load & shoot, a great gun!

Things I liked:

Shoots great. Fun plinker. 5rd. magazine

Things I would have changed:

Target acquisition difficult with "post globe" front sight.I painted a small white V on the rear sight. Painted front blade red. Discovered front blade was bent. Plan on getting scope. Disappointed that the sign off certificate, date of manufacture and date of preservation all 04/23/2014 which makes it almost 2 years old. I would have preferred a fresher rifle. Extra spring is not included any longer. Very disappointed.

What others should know:

If you do plan on purchasing a Baikal IZH/MP61 might as well get a scope and rings that fit the provided dove tail. Pyramyd Air should confirm date of manufacture is not older than 12 months and confirm sights are not damaged. I don't know if I will purchase the scope and rings from Pyramyd. Jim Chema

Things I liked:

Unique style. Easy lever that a 10 year old can use.Very accurate and fun to shoot.

Things I would have changed:

The clip so the ammo doesn't dump. It seems to be a regular complaint. You do get use to it but it would be nice to see that improved

What others should know:

We have a blast shooting this gun! Pellets we have found to work really well are the H&N Hammer . Buy a spare clip so you don't have to stop and reload.
