What is your opinion of a Baikal combo 7x57 x12 gauge?
What is one in excellent condition worth?
I have two of these combo guns one a 223 x12gauge the other a 308 x12gauge, bought them both new at the LGS
The 223 x12ga I bought about 15 years ago was marketed by Remington as a SPR94 but was nothing more than a stamp on the box
The 308 x12ga I bought about 10 years ago and both were the same price $549
Both have the same weaknesses..........for one the recoil pads need to be changed before use, the Russian rubber pads are harder than the wood they are screwed to (a simple fix but necessary). The other problem not such an easy fix, the triggers are dreadful. the trigger pull has my gauge bottomed out so I'm guessing 6lbs+. I deal with a couple different gunsmith's and they all refuse to attempt a trigger fix.
On the bright side I mounted a Leupold FX-II 2.5x28 Scout scope on the 223 x12ga and was shocked at how accurate it was, it shot 1 1/2"groups or less with several different kinds of ammo at 100 yards. I patterned the shotgun and was also impressed, they come with 4 different choke tubes. Have not been quite as impressed with the 308
