Type: BB Machine gun
Model: IZH MP-661K
Materials: Metal & Polymer
Weight: 3.5 pounds
Barrel: 8 inches, metal-rifled
Propulsion: CO2 or (Bulk air with adaptor)
Action: Electronic trigger with 1-3-6 round burst & 300-340-600 Rounds Per Minute
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's
Ammunition Capacity: 30 rounds
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the IZH Drozd is nice and light due to the fact that the trigger is not mechanical but is instead an electronic on-off switch that operates a solenoid. The solenoid pulsates in turn hitting the CO2 valve release. This is how the single fire and burst fire rates are achieved.
Accuracy: When I was sighting the Baikal Drozd in I got several 5 shot groups well within 1 inch 30 feet out from the target. But when I did my actual video accuracy test, the Drozd did not perform as well, getting more like a 2 inch group, still very reasonable for a gun that can shoot 600 rounds per minute out of the box and 1200 rounds per minute when modified. With metal streaming out the barrel like that you are pretty much going to hit whatever you point it at, the odds are in your favor!
Build Quality: This is a typical Russian made gun, all business and less importance put on looks but even so it is visually appealing, at least to me! Everything works exactly as it should and even though the main shell is plastic it is really a weapons grade polymer so there is no cause for concern here. There are a fair amount of metal components like the factory barrel, most of the magazine and many internal parts.
Realism: Again, the Baikal Drozd IZH MP-661K is not a replica, but it does look like a sub machine gun in many ways, I'm really just not sure exactly what it looks like but when you are shooting this gun you really don't think much about this point because you are too busy grinning!
- Very well made BB machine gun.
- Excellent power.
- Good accuracy in all shooting modes.
- Uses the 12 gram CO2 - a bit cheaper! (Can also convert to bulk air)
- Stock version can shoot up to 600 rounds per minute.
- Multiple stock lengths.
- Rifled barrel.
- Adjustable rear sight for windage and elevation.
- Removable magazine hold BB's and CO2.
- Many mods for this gun.
- Great for pest control, especially the ones that don't stay still.
- Made in Russia.
- 12 Gram CO2 - you need to change it often!
- Top Accessory rail is a bit short and low.
- Rear stock can get lose sometimes (just add some tape to tighten it up a bit).
Comments: The Baikal IZH MP-661K is one of the most fun BB machine guns out there and well worth the extra cost to get such a quality product that not only is great out of the box but can also be modified in so many ways to improve its performance and looks dramatically. Sure the Baikal IZH MP-661K now has a big brother, the Drozd Blackbird, but the Blackbird may be just a bit of overkill for some, I kind of like the Drozd Classics more compact size and if you can't nail what your shooting at with 30 rounds then you’re doing something very wrong! The Drozd is really the epitome of extreme BB gun weaponry!

This is a table top review of the Baikal Drozd Classic IZH MP-661K CO2 BB Machine gun. I show you around this utilitarian looking BB machine gun and walk you through its basic operation and handling. I show you my target test shooting results from 30 feet out while using a Red Dot Scope in single fire and full auto burst mode. This CO2 BB machine gun has a claimed Feet Per Second rating of up to 500fps in single shot mode but is capable of much more with some basic modifications. I test it out on an already well used CO2 cartage to see what you can really expect to see in terms of feet per second ratings and the Baikal Drozd still preformed well in the velocity department.
The Baikal Drozd Classic BB shooter is mostly high grade polymer on the outside but has some metal parts on the inside along with a metal barrel and mostly metal magazine giving it a good overall weight and feel but with a few accessories added, it quickly gains some more weight to it. This again was another really fun review to make for you and I found the Baikal Drozd to be well worth the extra money and a wonderful BB machine gun for Pest control on those little vermin that just don't want to stand still for you!
