The IZH-61 has been around a while. This version seems to have a different trigger than what I’d remembered. The rifle uses a side lever to cock the spring and rifle, as well as advance the 5 shot clip. The 5 shot clip is a nice function and makes this a very fun rifle to shoot. The open sights are pretty awful in my opinion. The Leapers Bug Buster turned out to be just right for this project. The stock is adjustable for smaller shooters, which makes this a good option for both young and old. There does not seem to be a safety on this rifle, which is a big concern in my book when considering this for a youngster. The rifle is inexpensive, performs well with the Gamo Hunter pellets but you’ll need A LOT of practice and patience to master this new trigger.
