Made in the USSR.

Post by gamekeeper »

I popped into my local toyshop for .410 shells and came away with a Baikal IJ 58 MA 12 gauge sxs. The p/g stock needs a lot of TLC but mechanically it's sound.
I swapped my Cooey s/b and my Stevens s/b thus making room for a 20 gauge when I can find one I like.
The Baikal will be mainly for Fox and Roe deer, it should be ok as engraved on the receiver there's a Moose head on one side and a Elk head on the other... :lol:
It's choked mod and full, 28.5 inch barrels and weighs about six and three quarter pounds. I will pattern it before I do any restoration..

Not quite sure what you mean.
Mechanically sound is good.

Bakail coach guns are pretty popular here among the cowboy action crowd! What size shot will you use for fox or deer?

Griff, I have BBs, AAA, Spec.SG and #3s I also have a few of 00 buckshot which I'm not very keen on. I've probably killed more Foxes with #4 shot than anything, it's just a matter of calling them in real close. I will pattern the Baikal with BBs as they will most likely be what I use on both as the other shot sizes are hard to get at the moment and I don't have many.
Baikal shotguns are popular over here as they have a "working man's price tag" I have had a few in the past and really like them.

I'll make exceptions for foreign guns that are of the quality, "meat & potatoes"......they run and run and don't break down, like a Ruger.....I've heard lots good about those Gamekeeper.......

Restoration?....looks mighty fine to me....sometimes just a 4-0 steel wool pad and some Tru-Oil will bring em up like new...

You guys have lots of brick and stone there for construction materials I noticed...around here it's, "build em for 20-50 years" and rip em down.-----006

looks nice ! i have several baikal over and under combo guns....put together really well, and very accurate. built like tanks. they have really improved the wood and the fitting. they seem to be a bargain to me. you can adjust the rifle point of impact a bit. the savage model OU combo guns are okay, but seldom can you find one where the rifl eand shotgun shoot anywhere near the same point of aim

good find, congratulations !

Mechanically sound. Doesn't that mean that it clanks and clatters?

Guns are good and sturdy. Just like their women! :mrgreen:
30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

The USSR died in 1989. Is it an old one? HAs it got CCCP stamped on it?

No just made in USSR. It looks by the engraving to be one of the later models, probably around ,1985/86? The ij 58 was discontinued in 87.

I bought a 12ga Baikal SxS with chokes a long time ago. Shot it thousands of rounds at sporting clays. I can't take the recoil anymore even with clay sport loads....If I had to put 00 in it: :shock: :o :shock: :o

Picked up one of those long long ago. Impulse buy (like most). It is the short barreled version and came with 45-70 tubes. Thought it was mis-labeled but no, actual full length rifle tubes. little rear sight to screw into the top between the barrels also.

Cool, fun shotgun.
