Baikal Yarigin Lightweight Polymer Pistol

    At the RAE ’13 show in Russia, Baikal unveiled a polymer framed version of the Baikal Yarigin MP-443, the standard sidearm of the Russian military. The Baikal Yarigin Lightweight adds a picatinny and weighs less than the original all steel model, but otherwise looks and functionals the same.
