I have a 12ga Baikal (Spartan) IZH18 Sporting single barrel and like it very much. It is my third Baikal. I also have the IZH27 12ga Sporting O/U, and the IZH27 20ga nickel receiver o/u. I've never had a problem with any of them, and they work well for me. I use them for Skeet and Trap.ron73644 said:Does anybody have the Spartan Sporting Singleshot? If you do, tell me what gauge, and how you like it. THANKS!!!
