Baikal MP-161K Carbine

I don’t think the Baikal MP-161K is a new gun but I don’t recall seeing it before. This semi-automatic Russian rifle comes chambered in .22 LR, .22 WMR and .17 HMR. It has windage adjustable open sights and a weaver rail for optics.

I really like the stock design, although I could do without the blue colored rubber inserts.

The magazine holds 9 rounds.

It is being sold in Canada for 449.99 CAD. I don’t think it could be legally imported into the US.
