Does anyone know the advantage of mounting the scope so high on the previous pic?

Interesting!
So the high mount won't be good for close range shooting say 10m?

The High Rise positions the arms to reduce strain, which in turn reduces wobble –
the most dangerous enemy of any standing shooter!

It is a stable standing postion.
However, at 10m I don't think the range of elevation
on you scope will allow a zero at such close range.

Thanks for any input.
At one time left-hand grips were offered from the factory.
Maybe knowing the part number may help in locating the item.

Mac1 Style 46-M

Mac1 has recently begun modifying the “IZZY”, MP-46M Airgun.
The service is know as the Mac1 Style 46-M ... Upgrade Details.

Quote:
1. In a Percentage of factory Izzys, the Valve Chamber is
corroded and the guns will not seal.
If the corrosion is not there initially, Without proper lubrication it can happen anytime.
And the leaker will want our upgrade (Compressing Air will always leave moisture in the mild steel chamber).
Mac1 replaces this chamber with Non-Magnetic and Non-Corroding Stainless Steel.
(Tiny metal debris can collect in the factory airguns with regular steel chambers)
Better Power: Our chamber volume is slightly less, so each charge has slightly elevated pressure
to give slightly better power.

2. We strip out the Russian Seals, and replace them with 90 durometer
American seals
that are harder and more durable.
We have been doing this for 5 years since the first Izzy 46’s appeared.
The Result: No Failures have occurred on any IZZY 46 Airgun Mac1 has upgraded. NADA
We do other good things too…..but let us keep some of our Trade Craft a Secret.
What you get is the most “Bullet Proof” 46m Pistol available. Period.

Huh?

Wow this is a great example of marketing versus (my) reality.
Remember the old saying about selling ice to eskimos?

Resonable Modifications ... Snake Oil

Well ... sign me up for some glacier water ice.

Perhaps to someone living near a marine (saltwater) environment such as Palacios, Texas,
or a high relative humidity and/or foggy area like Huntsville, Texas,
a stainless steel compression chamber would make a lot of sense.

Modifying an IZH-46 to accept long-lasting, readily available, American-made compression seals
sounds like a win-win in terms of reliability and to minimize maintenance requirements.

If a -46 owner is an avid tinkerer or DIYer ... the MAC1 services/modifications may seem of little value.
However, if you're a person, such as myself, who has no problem with having someone else tune his air gun.
Or, are willing to have a reputable airgunsmith perform a modification to increase durability and reliability.
It is an appealing service.

How about this for some snake oil ...
MAC1 was experimenting with converting the -46 to a multi-stroke pneumatic.
I found this post, which I missed, by mac-1 Tim...Expand Thread on Dec 31, 2009 4:46 PM

But sadly, the project is currently on-hold.

Here's my take.
1.The IZH 46m is a 10 meter competition pistol.
2.The power it puts out is exactly what is needed for 10 meter competition.
3.The pistol costs around 375.00.
4.The seals are plentiful and durable (Mines 4 years old) i have 3 extra sets.
5. I can't justify spending another $400.00? (if i'm reading the add corectly)
to get more fps and a chamber that wont rust?

I'm just saying that my IZH 46 is for 10 meter comp. I oil it as recomended. The fps speed is sufficient. I have extra seals. I guess if you want $800.00 invested in a 10 meter airgun you should buy a used FWB 103 or many other finely crafted ssp's out there.

My Mac1 IZZY

I love my 46M as worked on by Tim at MAC1. It shoots R10 7.0 at 486.7 average, and is hard on hoppers and flys! Tim sells the MAC1 46M for $400 total price (not an additional $400) at this time, and his work is well done. He has been doing these mods for over five years with zero problems. Regards

IZH-46M (Izzy) Air Pistol

I was looking at the classified section of the Yellow Forum
and came across and old add that still had some photos links
that were still operational.
I contacted the owner of the classified and some information
he provided lead me to a trail to follow.
IZH-46M (Izzy) Air Pistol - Author Bill Clarke 14 March 2009

Quote:
Informational links to help you enjoy and maintain your Izzy

Manual with diagram and parts list
Disassembly Instructions - from Todd Cooper
Grip modifications - from the TargetTalk Forum

Quote:
The IZH-46M is manufactured by: Baikal ZMH.
The Izzy, as this airgun is affectionately called by most of its owners,
is a single stroke pnuematic (SSP) - meaning the only thing you need
to shoot it is pellets and a target.

No required Co2 or compressed air (CA). Just pull the cocking bar out
and push it back, place a pellet in the breech, aim, and shoot.

The Baikal IZH-46M is often called an entry level air pistol
for serious air pistol competitions.

Perhaps entry level is speaking to the affordable price,
as compared to the $1500 air pistols of world class competitors.
Because entry level sure doesn't comment to the Izzy's capabilities.

With a fully adjustable trigger, fully adjustable sights, and accuracy
beyond the capabilities of 99.999% of the competitive shooters
- the IZH-46M is a capable serious competition air pistol
- yet, very affordable.


Additional Information Provided by Owner
Quote:
This was the second that I have owned.
Good little gun, but sometimes I shoot a hundred of so shots in a session.
My arm gets tired from the weight of the gun (nose heavy) and from the cocking effort.

I was right in selling the first one and wrong is buying a second one.

Build quality is excellent.
There are a lot of moving parts - some under a lot of strain when cocking.
The trigger is excellent.
It is very accurate.

I modified the grips using a Dermal Tool and refinished them with Tru-Oil.
