    Getting around 1" at 75m. Haven't really given it a good thrashing yet. Build quality of metal is very good. Pivot is tight and a very positive lockup.

    i would assume any problems in the original build quality/design would have been fixed by the gunsmith when it was rebarrelled . . . . so not representative of original factory Rossi's
    without a picture . .. it never happened !

    The barrel is an original re-bored and rifled

    dont tell me the original method of attaching the forend was left alone . . . that would be criminal

    a bloody great weld to the bottom of the barrel to attach the nut which the takedown screw went into, fcking crazy.

    mine pulled the barrel down into a low spot in the forend which needed to be filled before i got decent accuracy, a common problem to them.

    Most factory Rossis haven't got straight barrels( or at least the outside contour wobble around the bore). That does not mean they can't shoot alright. Bergeras tend to be a bit more consistent. Baikals are good as well.

    they can shoot there is no doubt if you want to tinker around or your expectations arent very high . . . good enough for most shooters

    My motorbike rifle- Baikal .270, barrel cut back to 20". I wanted a .308 and would of cut the barrel back more but none were available at the time. Added the DPT & Weaver rail mount, polished up the trigger. Does around 1.25 Moa for 3 shots but is quite picky on what it likes. Suppressor keeps the recoil manageable and the balance right too. Added some non-slip grip tape to the action to stop my hand from going numb in cold weather.
    Could definitely lose some weight in the action area, they are built like a Russian tank. Length of pull is very good for me- I'm over 6ft and 114kg. Weight as pictured is 3.7kg.

    Mate, very cool, it's along the lines of what I am looking at. I will go 308, I have always loved eastern block guns and I really don't know why but for some reason the things are rough as guts but appeal.

    I think reloaders supplies in Onehunga had the 308s. We ran out some time back and only have the 7.62x39 left. I have seen one in .303 which I have to presume was a re-chambered 7.62x39 and I saw one advertised in 7.62x54R for those that enjoy recoil.....I would think that may be a re-chamber as well but being a rusky calibre who knows.....

    If going subsonic the 7.62x39 case is big enough but the recipe for accuracy (bullet weight / composition) seems to be a challenge. The tapered, rimmed calibres like 303 or 7.62x54R are a really good shape for this style of action.

    Any of you guys with the Rossi's, run subsonic loads, particularly in 44mag? Did the twist rate stabilize the projectiles?

    Mine is stablising .430 270gr hollowpoints from @shooternz ok. Its doing just under 1" groups at 50 yards, which is fine for me as I don't intend to shoot further than 100 with the subs. I have yet to try it since the barrel chop though so will have to see if its still ok, have gone from 22" down to just over 15".

    Cheers @Guypie

    To answer the original question, the baikals are built tough, reasonbly accurate (the one I had years ago shot around 1.5inch groups) the triggers are pretty average, heavy with alot of creep. Apart from that good value for the money.

    Anyone got a single shot they want to pass on before I go and start a new project?....

    Only looking to shoot out to 150m prefer 30cal and running subs hough I am interested to know what a 44mag would do to a whitetail at 100m
