Baikal MP 53M for 6yd comp?

Postby D_H_P » Mon Dec 24, 2012 12:33 pm

Hi,

I understand its a "Classic" club, but am I ok to use a modern Baikal MP53m for the 6yd rested comp?

Yes, it's "classic" in that it's a traditional springer, though we haven't put any such restrictions on entering the comp.

I shoot mine one handed at 10m, so you should do well.

Kind regards,

out of curiousity does your composite grip mark easily with slight discolouration?
Mine came as such from the box and im at a loss how to clean it up :(

Yes,

it seems to mark very easily, but not badly.
The dusty grey colour goes shiny if rubbed or scrapped, looks a bit like snail trails.

I am happy with it, certainly as a first pistol, people say its accurate, and it seems to be some of the time.

I am doing the UBC 6yd competition. I have practiced on the targets, sometimes I get good groups one handed, then two handed the 5 shots are so random you couldn't call it a group, The next card its the other way around.

But getting better, slowly.

Posted a quick thread on mine, when I first got it,  >here<

Grip is an odd type of what looks like layered plastic, reminds me of tupperware.

Very easy to mark, and not so easy to remove the marks.

Still, its more of a patina than damage by rough handling, and doesn't detract in anyway.

Kind regards,
