I don't know anything about that particular model. However the Baikal's I'm aware of (imported by EAA) have in general been well made, although they are priced far lower than a comparable "name brand" long gun of similar configuration. Their russian made.
I just bought an older used model IZH-94, it is a 12Ga./7X57R. I am going to mount a scope on it tonight and I am going to sight it this weekend. The only issue I have is the rifle round. I think there are only two manufactures for this round, although it is still cheap. Mid-South Shooting Supply had Sellier and Bellot 20 round boxes for sale at $11.00 in 139gr and 175gr.
Mine has never been used at all and it was very sticky to break open. I hear that is common and that it goes away after the first 100 rounds.
I could not be happier about this gun, I was originally going to get a Savage Combo but the Baikal was only $300 and the Savages are about twice the price. I am sure mine is cheaper becasue it is older but I have read of people getting great deals on new ones.
I think Guns America has a couple up for auction. I used google to find similar models and compare prices with a variety of search terms. You should be able to find somthing with google.
I love this gun. I am not sure that I will ever need another gun after buying this one.
