You're entitled to your opinion, of course, but I'd disagree quite strongly with you on that.

They're not at all ungainly nor overweight for what they were designed for. If you ignore the buttstock and trigger guard of the Mark IV / V they have some nice lines on them - stock, cheekpiece, lever, trigger guard, loading trough, barrel, etc., and they were always nicely finished. I leave it to others with more experience of them to comment on Baikal shotguns.
