Additional Info
Default "made in the USSR" 12 gauge

I had the chance to hunt with a friends 12 gauge and I love it however I cannot find any info on this weapon. Its an extremely simple single shot and the only marking is on the right side an embellished "made in the USSR" Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome. Any pics? I'm not familiar with any Russian 12GAs other than the saiga and Izmash. Izmash makes the Saiga, but they also make over-unders and other shotties...

Oh wait! Baikal! They made single shots!

Hard to say without a pic though...

Hard to say. I did find this:

Russian Baikal IJ-58 12ga shotgun USSR IJ58 SxS






If that's not it, let us know if it had a hammer or not, if it was break action, etc.

PS, welcome to the site!

I can't get a pic however it was a break barrel with the lever under the trigger guard. It didn't have a hammer but when cocked the back of the pin stuck out a little so you could check if its cocked without looking at it. I'm new to civilian weapons so I'm trying to figure out what to add for more info. Thanks!

Never seen a shotgun with a lever on the underside that didn't have a hammer. It was a break-open not a breech/falling block?

I have it! I bet it's a Remington Spartan or the SPR100. The Spartans were made in Russia for Remington by Baikal. Check the link pics...

I actually held a single break open Baikal last week. The underlever releases the breech instead of the typical top side lever. This was a 20 guage, and good fit and finish and stylish for $199, I was impressed with the looks, fit and finish

Wow, good find! I was wondering how the pin worked with the typical latch to break the action.
