Talk about a plastic rifle!!!!! On the lines with my beloved Nylon 66 I wish I had still. Dunno about a $400 plastic rifle that you have to paint to keep it from falling apart!!! Nylons seemed to hold up OK. Interesting look wonder how the internals hold up, looks like a skinny barrel. Like Toxicsports says it better be accurate! Interesting.

Tozman ... Mystery Man or Man of Mystery

Scott,
Don't mean to hi-jack the thread.
But, I'm trying to corral Tozman.

Tozman,
Do you mind telling me (us ... the forum) a little about yourself.
I've been very curious about you.

What is your connection to RU?
Do you have any firearms industry contacts in RU?
Do any of your RU acquaintances have links to RU firearms industry?

It also seems that you have much to contribute to the forum.
So far you have been very coy.
So, why is your participation so limited?

It would be good for the forum if you did more posting/participating.
Just wondering - Alex aka: aom22

No problem. I will let you corral me. I might return the favour to you one day

On another forum, someone described me as "the fictional creature who exists only on the internet".....

Alex, look at yourself in the mirror and you will see a bit of me. I love firearms in general and Russian ones in particular. I do collect Russian/Soviet made guns. I also do a lot of research on them on my free time, I also collect gun-photos ( call it a hobby).
I have learned a lot (and still learn) on various forums. Hey, I learned a few bits from you right here.

Quote:

I am not Russian. I do understand the language a bit (very basic).

Quote:
Do you have any firearms industry contacts in RU?
Unfortunately no.

Quote:

Nope. I wish they did, I would bombard them with questions.

Quote:

Thanks for the compliment.
Yes, I am knowledgable in many ways. I also have a lot to learn from you (and others) in many other ways.

Quote:

I am not shy, I will post when I can. I simply don't have the time to post more frequently.

Thanks again for the compliment. I will do my best.
Let me compliment you for upkeeping this forum. A lot of good information here.

MP 161K Market

Somehow I don't think Baikal marketing is targeting the Marlin 60 market.

Rather the Beretta Carbine Kit U22 NEOS, Browning Buckmark .22 Rifle
or the Walther Model G22 potential buyer.

Accuracy has nothing to do with it.
It's all about looks.

I thought I had created a thread about these many moons ago.

https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=135831

In fact, it also listed a MP 141 which was a straight pull bolt action according to the reply from Izhamash.

I'd be more interested in locating those $100 Marlins than $400 MP161Ks.

And, you probably wouldn't be interested in a Beretta Carbine Kit U22 NEOS,
Browning Buckmark .22 Rifle or a Walther Model G22 either.

Neither accuracy nor relative cost have anything to do with it.
It's all about looks.

Ultra Violet Light and Plastic Thickness

I didn't provide any references when I addressed this issue(s) earlier.
Plastic is ubiquitous, however, its degradation properties are less understood.

Moreover, I think it is important that statements be attributed - if possible.
This way the knowledge base of the reader is expanded.

In your case, I suspect the problem is related to sunlight.
More specifically exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light radiation.
Ultraviolet light can seriously degrade plastics.
Quote:
Of all the factors involved in UV resistance,
there are three that figure most prominently; thickness, opacity, and the use of stabilizers.
These three factors are combined to defend plastics against Ultraviolet (UV) light.
Quote:
Light degrades plastics by transferring its energy into the plastic.
This energy can cause damage by creating heat,
or this energy can actually break molecular bonds in a plastic’s structure.
Both the heat and the breaking of bonds can create a loss of physical properties in the plastic.
Quote:
If a plastic is completely black (or some other opaque colour)
then the light only acts on the surface and much less damage will occur over time.
