IZH94 Express rifle (double rifle)

This is a very pedestrian, but sturdy rifle built by Baikal and imported at the time I bought it by EAA (European American Armoury). I needed (OK, wanted!) some type of double rifle to complete my rifle action collection. This was by far the least expensive route for me to go at that time. This rifle cost less than any nice set of double rifle barrels I could find made for my Valmet 412S.

The chambering, being .308 was also not at the top of my list, but I got a very good deal on this rifle NIB, so I bought it. A little research showed me that Millet had some rings that would fit the dovetail on the receiver top, so I also scoped it. Looking back, I should have simply left it unscoped and will likely simply remove it (the scope) some time in the near future.

After all, it's not a target rifle and would take considerable time and energies to get the barrels shooting to the same POA. Actually they would only do that at some predetermined range, since they sit 2" apart, with the scope another 1.5" above them. Best to simply utilize it for 50yd shots in close cover with the supplied rudimentary express sights, I think.

Pictures have been posted, along with the Valmet 412S in the photo section.

Thanks.

Thanks

Thanks, that looks like a good option for those who like the over under action.  

I prefer side by sides but they are hard to find in the same price range as an over under double rifle.
