One of the best .22 rifles made is the Izhmash Biathlon Basic. Made in Russia it is incredibly well made and will shoot sub moa all day long. The only drawback I could see was the rail they use for the scope mount. It’s really made for a single rear sight system which is why it’s so short. We came out with this real “scope rail” for it several years back. This allows you to put the scope of your choice on the rifle and get the proper eye relief. Turning it into a top notch target rifle that will out shoot unit’s costing a great deal more.
This used to be an incredibly popular product, however due to importation restrictions of the rifle now there are not as many in circulation within the USA anymore. For this reason we do not keep these stocked, and they are made to order. Depending on how busy we are, manufacturing and finish work may take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks. If you'd like to order one and are concerned about the time frame of manufacturing please give us a call or contact us via the website or email first. Thank you!
