Default Baikal Side by Side 12 gauge

Picked this up used very cheap, figured what the heck (under $200). This is the IZH 43, a 24' 12 gauge. A good crowd control piece for the shop, I figured. This one was an import by EAA. Very little visible use.

Took it to the clay course earlier today and was I ever surprised. Handles/points/shoots similar to $2000 double barrels I have shot, just not near as pretty and a tad heavier. Barrels are chromed and as good as anything I've ever seen.

The single trigger is a must for me. This is better built than any Remington or Mossberg shotgun I have seen. No, its not a top of the line Beretta. But who would take a $2000-4000 gun shooting in the field on a rainy day? Not me!

The Baikals are popular with cowboy action shooters. Not as well known as the Stoeger Coach Guns, which are widely available and well advertised, but in my opinion the Baikal is a better gun.

The two-trigger versions are seen more often but I know a couple of folks who have the single trigger gun. Theirs work well.

I think you got a deal.
