    Single shot take down rifle

    I am thinking of putting together a single shot , break down rifle to go into a back pack while riding a dirt bike to get to hunting spots and be assembled once needed.
    It would be short and suppressed.
    Just wondering if anyone has one or is doing something similar ?

    Also the brands are limited, Baikal , Rossi , TC Encore.
    Has anyone had any experience with any of these brands / models ?

    I had a Baikal, I did not like it. Trigger was yuck even after the gunsmith had a go at it. I have a rossi pomba now and I like it a lot better, trigger is pretty heavy but has a nice crisp break. I just got it chopped to about 20mm over min legal length, still has just over 15" barrel. Mine is in 44 mag. Have loaded up subsonics and once I have my workshop set up again I will have a go at making a supperssor for it.

    Had a Baikal in 223.
    Shot well, the lack of an action ( bolt etc ) meant even with the barrel lenght standard, I could fit an overbarrel
    suppressor, and it was still reasonably compact.
    Broken down, it fitted into a pack nicely.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    I also like the bergera takedown. A mate has the new stainless model in .308 I have had a good play with it, putting about 30 shots through it and really really liked it. Good trigger, and ready to mount a scope with a one piece base on it. Exposed hammer is awesome too, and seems quite safe on half cock. Priced well, and now comes in stainless. Takes down in seconds like a shotgun (just like the Baikal or the TC). Very handy for packing. If I was to get a single shot takedown, this would be it. In fact I gave this very serious consideration as my main rifle, but have stuck with a bolt action.

    I can't comment on the Rossi.

    The Baikal is a bit average. I have had two, a .222 and a .223, both were good accuracy wise but..... Awkward to mount a scope on. The trigger is just crap and not great even with a trigger job. Have to rely on safety as no exposed hammer. Still the price is great on these, and the open sights aren't bad. If I was to get another it would be in .308 and I'd put a aperture rear sight on it, no suppressor.

    I've had a short play with a mates TC (in 7mm Walters), and found it really good. Similar features to the bergara but nicer fit and finish (not that the Bergara is bad by any means). By far and away the most expensive.

    another option to consider is a folding stock bolt gun . . . getting ready to get stuck into the Goats again so thinking this might be handy for throwing in a day pack

    MDT chassis, ACE . . 16 inch barrel in 223AI
    5 shot AI mag or 10 shot MDT
    4 power Khales

    tried a .223 Rossi, shot ok after a lot of fiddling
    2 Baikals . 7.2x39 - .270W doable but not great
    Contenders have their own issues from the research i did so didnt go there.
    Bergaras look pretty good in the shop . . . as most rifles do

    good luck . .. R

    My brother manages to get better accuracy from his baikal than most but they are capable rifles. A littleindustrial perhaps, but they work, they are solidly built and the last. They also seem to hold their value when resold with most seeming to sell around the $400 mark when they are only about $500 new

    I have 7.62x39 left only and the rifles by themselves are at $450 for forum members ($495 usually) Threading / shortening is $65, Gunworks suppressor $300,

    Blaser K95 is a good option.
    I have a short 8x57R barrel coming to go with this and it will be 16" plus short over barrel suppressor.

    Been downhill track with a baikal, not impressed with it. I do like the look of the bergara and would be a definite contender if I was looking at making up a pack rifle

    @Kiwi Greg Is that a B cat?

    From arms act

    "pistol means any firearm that is designed or adapted to be held and fired with 1 hand; and includes any firearm that is less than 762 millimetres in length"

    Leave the butstock off that and it would be a pistol.

    Yes it would be if you removed the butt stock.

    You need tools to do so, just as you do to remove the butt stock from a rifle or shotgun.

    I guess the problems start when you do so, just like exceeding the speed limit in a vehicle.
