Cheap O/U Shotgun (12g, single trigger, ejectors)

I don't know if anybody here shoots, but just in case!

Here I have for sale my Baikal O/U 12 Gauge Shotgun with ejectors and a single trigger. I bought this gun last week with the intent to use it as a rough shooting gun, however I have a shoulder injury from a motorcycle accident some years ago and the shape of the butt of this gun unfortunately does not fit my shoulder as well as I'd hoped. I put about 10 cartridges through it personally before I decided it wasn't for me, however my father put another 90 or so through the gun today so I know it works perfectly fine.

This shotgun is in fair condition for its age and shoots well, it would make a good starter gun or second gun for out in the field. There is some pitting but not too bad, the blueing is about a 5 out of 10. There is a small crack in the bottom of the pistol grip but other than that the butt is in fair condition for the guns age and price.

The barrel length is 27" 3/4, Length to pistol grip is 13" 3/4 and the choke sizes are 1/4 and 1/2. It's a Right Handed gun. I'm asking what I paid for the gun, which is 110, and as such I won't take any offers on it as I think it's a fair price. Collection only from Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire and viewing highly recommended.

It goes without saying but I will obviously only sell the gun to those who hold and bring with them a valid SGC or RFD certificate.

Another hobby i'd love to take up if I had lots of time and money (I have neither!). Someone once told me that clay pigeon basically works out to 1 every time you pull the trigger (cost of cartridges and clays I guess?)?

Still - amazed that a shotgun can be had for 110! I assumed they'd cost hundreds....

With guns its a case of how much do you want to pay.........you can spend a lot if you really want to!
I know someone who customised his Ruger 10/22 to the tune of about 3500, match barrel, high end optics, custom receiver etc.......this is all on a gun which costs 295 brand new out of the packaging.

Best of luck with the sale

A good old solid gun, why don't you use it as a part ex, if you have shoulder problem there are 2 ways to counter the kick, one is to buy a gun with more weight, a gun meant for clay shooting will be much heavier or go to a semi auto using gas to re-cock the action ( nearly all are) avoid like the plague a browning a5 they had a barrel that moved to re-cock the action, the kick can be brutal, also get the gun fitted to you, it makes all the difference. When I shot clays competitively I used a miroku mk38 32" barrel 1/2 3/4 choke you could easily shoot 300 28g world cups a day no problem.

Id chop it in. But any gun shop around here would give you a100 quid for it and sell it to farmer for pest control !

Could you weigh it for me my mate is after a 12 bore for his daughter to use as she is getting ready to move up to 12 gauge at this price if not too heavy it might fit the bill ,

Not really, 1 a pull would be ludicrous! I shoot at an expensive ground - 0.40p a clay - and I pay 200 for 1000 cartridges so 0.20p a cartridge makes it 0.60p every time you pull the trigger. If I drive another 20~ miles or so then I can get it for 0.28p a clay and 0.15p a cartridge (they allow plastic wad) so thats just 0.43p a pull.

At one time you could get a brand new Chinese shotgun at my local RFD for 50! I wouldn't personally recommend it, though . The Baikal I'm selling here is a 'Made in USSR' gun, but they're known to be very reliable guns that are very simple and agricultural but still provide a good all round gun.

I will use it as part ex if I have to, but I figure it's better to walk in with cash than with a gun and cash. Plus it gives somebody a chance to get a decent gun at a cheap price!

I get on really well with the Beretta Silver Pigeon for clays, so I'll be going down that route, but I still need a cheap gun for rough shooting. It's just the shape of the butt and how it fits my shoulder I think. Not a big fan of semi-autos, especially because they're frowned upon in certain circles and you also have to pick up your cartridges after shooting! And yeah I'll be getting a gun fit on whatever I buy for clays, but perhaps not straight away, and I don't want to do a 200 gun fit on a 100 gun if you know what I mean!

Sure you can't squeeze it in there?

Thanks!

Not sure what I'd get chopping it in, but I will as a last resort if it doesn't sell. Sure thing, I'll weight it tonight/tomorrow and get back to you
