cranky,
I was fortunate to find an IZH-35M this year in great shape with 4 magazines for a nice price. 3 of the mags appear to have never seen use. I have looked around and have never found magazines, springs or any spares for these things. You might try stretching them out, maybe it will buy you some time.

Another option would be to contact J&P Springs to see if they are interested in making some up. I have never dealt with them, but the consensus view on RFC is that they are stand-up guys who do business the "old-fashioned" way. That is to say, with integrity. I would not hesitate to purchase from them, and it seems that they are open to new product ideas. They are sponsors of RFC, and Jim and Pete are members as well.

Good luck--let us know what you find out.

Baikal IZH-35 Magazines ... Hard To Find

Good question ... for which there is no good answer.

I would call the following company and see if the status has changed.
And, to maintain contact in the event that a supply is found.

AMMOCLIP.COM
Baikal IZH35M
Quote:
Baikal IZH35M Russian target pistol .22LR, 5 round, blued steel body,
alloy base and poly follower, Russian factory original-new.
Limited to stock on hand. OUT OF STOCK
I'd also keep an eye on the auction sites.
You never can tell when something may crop-up.
I'd also check with:
Larry's Guns
Pilkington Competition Equip. LLC
D J Precision
Roco FirearmTechnology, LLC
Also, Target Talk has a thread of interest:
However a word of caution.
The Feinwerkbau AW 93 and Baikal IZH-35 are not related
as I found-out the hard way.

If you find anything out ... please keep the forum informed.
The lack of magazine availability is a major disincentive
for someone interested in the Baikal IZH-35 or -35M.

heres a trick i use

like chuckbuscuits said strech em out a tad,

get a small gas torch and put it on a fairly high setting
i borrow a oven rack from the kitchen and put that on bricks

a bit of foil on the over rack and its time to add the spring and heat..
move the torch in so the wire juat starts to change colous

TAKE YOUR TIME

wave the torch about to only heat for a second a time till its almost ready to go from blue to the yellows

i also put a tray of sump oil in the fridge over night so its about 5 deg C

very quickly quench the spring into the cold oil

if you place your foil right and your bath of oil you can slide the hot spring stright into your oil if you take too long reheat the spring and do again its thin and cools fast!!!!

this loses tensile strength and this is whats needed for springs hot to cold fast make sgood springs..

it does a great job when you get it right

you should be able to use water i like oil

see what works for you

it give the springs about another 80% life by my guess

Cheers and good luck eh

jack

Australia ... Magazines In-Country

Jack404 ... glad you weighed-in on the topic.
So I may ask you "are there any magazines available in Australia"
for the Baikal IZH-35(M)?

The following post at Target Talk prompted the question.

use high standard victor springs

I replaced the mag springs on my izh-35m mags 2 or 3 years ago. I used the replacement springs made for high standard victor pistol. The high standard mag springs are made for a 10 round mag. I just cut the springs in half and fix 2 of the izh mags. They work great and I haven't had a problem with feeding or jams since.

I also ordered high standard victor recoils springs at the same time. I cut them down to tune my izh-35m for different powered loads. Right now I'm running 2 different springs, a light one for pmc moderators & russian jurior ammo. And a heavier spring for sk standard+.

The only time I see mags for sale anymore is at gunshows. In my little corner of the world they want enough loot for a mag to put their kids threw grad school. It's easier and cheaper to buy a $5 spring, cut it in half, remove the pin at the bottom of the mag and slide the new spring in.

Good luck!

I guess I got lucky. I found a very nice 35 at a gun show. Everybody told me mags were impossible. I checked e-gunparts and they had new ones for $28 if I remember. I now have 6 mags, 5 new.
