  1. The King of the 92s will actually let you know what the back log is make a reservation and ship him the gun when he is ready to work on it. I did it and got the gun back in a couple of weeks.
  2. Multi focals are not an option for a person on medicare unless one wants to pay the lenses. I had left eye done in April, the right eye was not bad enough yet. Surgery done by opthamologist. Optomitrist did all follow ups. Morning after surgery, one week after the morning after and 4 weeks after the 1 week follow up. Drops (antibiotic) 3 days before and 7 days after Steriod drops starting day after 2x a day for 14 days and 1 x daily for 14 days. Eye Exam for corrective lenses 1 week or a few days later after last drops. At approx 6 mo follow up I was having trouble reading, one eye focused about 1 inch closer than the other and books dont have an offset in the pages was also a little dizzy first thing in AM when put on glasses. Also there was like 4.5 diopters difference in the 2 eyes so when I read one eye saw something like 12 pt type the other 14. These issues were enough that medicare would cover the second eye. Had it done 4 weeks ago tuesday of this week. Finished all the drops tuesday and have my corrective lense appointment next friday a week from today. The left eye is almost 20/ 20 and the right eye was about 20 25 at the 1 week post op appointment. With both eyes see 20 20. GIven there was a vision change with in the 1 year warranty period, Costco optical will replace lenses at no charge. WIll be interesting to see if both lenses change or just the one for the newly fixed right eye. The good news is I can see the front sight of a revolver just fine without glasses in the right eye and almost sharply with the left - good enough to hit targets with anyway. Will post an update after I get the new glasses.
  3. Baikal can be frustrating out of the box. After you open the action all the way it will have a tendency to close enough that the shells don't want to come out. If one pushes the barrel release lever back fully to the left with your thumb when the barrels are fully open they will stay open as long as you hold the lever to the left. This has something to do with the shape of the cams and a good shot gun guy can fix it. I am too cheap to pay for that so I push the barrel release to the left with my thumb (when I remember to, other times I cuss). Using a scotch brite pad and my drill press I was able to polish the chambers enough the shells will fly out. During the final polishing I added some plastic head light polishing liquid on the scotch brite pads. Like most russian stuff they are a bit crude and rough but being built like a tank are very reliable Being a total idiot I bought a $300 CIA 87 lever gun. Folks say they totally suck. In this case I spent the money and had Lassiter work his magic. Magic it was, it is slick and sweet. I suck at loading it but the gun works fine. I was able to hit the flyer with it at winter range.
  4. Hey Capt Dan, Yes it's a small rubber tubing wrapped around the rear of the trigger guard, it came on the gun. My other Baikal has a pink colored foam type material that I like better it it also came on the gun. The one I'm selling is an EAA Baikal where as the other is a Remington Spartan which is probably why their different. I'd bet some surgical tubing would fix your issue thoe....

  7. Howdy Capt. If you decide to shoot Grant an email, just tell him what dollar amount you sort of had in mind, and see what he can offer for that. You can always add or subtract animals. There are several tears of animal costs. Good luck, if I can be of any service, just let me know. Patrick
