Baikal IZH MP-61 Pellet Air Rifle

Type: Pellet Rifle
Manufacturer: Drozd
Model: IZH MP-61
Materials: Metal and plastic construction
Weight: 4.3 pounds
Barrel: 18.5 inches, metal-rifled
Propulsion: Spring piston
Action: Repeater
Ammunition Type: .177 caliber pellets
Ammunition Capacity: 5 rounds
FPS: 490


Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the IZH MP-61 is a nice light 1.4 pounds and the release stage is also adjustable, you actually need to be careful of accidental shots as the trigger is light enough to go off before you are ready to shoot.

Accuracy: Very good, I was not so sure when first using the IZH-61 with my initial scope and pellet setup but my second open sight test with different pellets yielded a very tight 1 inch group from 30 feet out in a standing unrested position.

Build Quality: This is a no-nonsense gun made Russian style, it is built to be cost effective so there are parts that could be made with metal that are plastic but there isn't anything on this gun that feels cheap or poorly built. Baikal also doesn't cheap out on the plastic as not all plastic is the same. I actually dropped the IZH MP-61 right on the front hooded sight without any adverse effects, cheap plastic would have cracked and broken.

Realism: Since the Baikal IZH-61 is not a replica gun, I cannot really compare it to any existing one rifle out there, but it does look very tactical in design, much more so then your standard spring piston air rifle.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive spring piston rifle
  • Very unique looking air rifle
  • Side pull lever design
  • 5 round magazine/clip
  • Right on the money with FPS
  • Adjustable Stock
  • Adjustable Trigger
  • 11mm dovetail rail mount for scopes
  • Very light weight and easy to cock
  • Made in Russia

Cons:

  • Plastic stock seems to mark up easy - kind of part of the utilitarian look
  • Mechanics takes a bit of getting use to
  • Scope rail mount is a bit short

Comments:The Baikal IZH MP-61 is a really nice low cost yet full featured air rifle! You really get a lot of rifle for your money: You get an efficient side lever design with a 5 shot magazines for quick repeat shots, a very light weight and adjustable trigger, an adjustable stock, a rail mount for a scope and one of the more tactical looking air rifles available on the market. The Baikal MP-61 also takes the FPS right up to the limit without going over so no license or PAL is required to own this one in Canada. This air rifle is designed for target shooting but could also be used for small pest control if your marksmanship is good enough to hit the vital kill zones of your prey.

Barrel Size:18.5 Inch

This video is a walkthrough Review of the Baikal (IZH) MP61 Spring Piston Side Lever air rifle. I show off this very affordable air rifle close up and I also take you through many of its features. I also do a 5 shot Chronograph test and 5 shot target test to see what kind of real world feet per second ratings it gets and what kind of grouping it will make on a target from 30 feet out.

The Baikal IZH MP-61 is a very reasonably priced Spring Piston Air Rifle with a unique tactical look and a ton of features to boot, including a 5 shot magazine for quick successive shots, adjustable trigger and stock, scope rail and light weight design.
