Its shocking how much Baikal stuff is going for. They are simple and solidly made, but hardly very sophisticated or refined. Always seem to go bang, though.I've never quite understood the obsession with single-shot firearms, myself. If I had to choose only one gun for survival in the bush, and was looking for simple and reliable, it would be Baikal IZH-94 TAIGA in 12GA over .308. Why settle for one barrel when you can have two? Sadly, the ban on Russian imports has made them scarcer than hens teeth. It's a shame they don't make them in 12GA over 7.62x39, judging by the cost of .308 ammo these days.
