Russian Izh18mh Hunting Rifle

$550 obo

Description:

I have a Russian IZH-18MH break action single shot rifle for sale. These rifles were sold by Remington as the Spartan Rifle. The rifle is pretty much still brand new and I've put about a dozen shots through it. It was sighted in and never shot again. The action is absolutely rock solid, it's actually still not broken in.
It has a 20" Hammer forged barrel with external flutes that look quite attractive.

It is chambered in Russian. It is very accurate though. The reputation of the round as somewhat inaccurate is completely undeserved. It's because the rifles it's best known for were not designed for accuracy, but for firepower and reliability in a battlefield situation. Chambered in a tight single shot or bolt action the cartridge is certainly accurate enough for hunting use.

It's ballistics are similar to a .30-30 Winchester. It differs in one aspect and that is it's recoil, which is noticeably less than even the light kicking .30-30.
That is why I think this makes a decent youth big game rifle. I like the Sellier and Bellot 124 grain soft points for hunting, which I am including a box.

It is wearing a brand new Bushnell Banner 3-9x40 scope.

Altogether a pretty neat little hunting rifle that is light weight and compact.
I am asking $550 for this uncommon little rifle
