Hell dude,

don't forget that one of the top Female Biathletes is German and uses a Izhmash....THAT is Irony at it's finest.

I can't wait to see what the Biathlon rifles will end up being after The Russian Federation funnels a few million bucks into it.

(Quote from Izhmash)
He claimed that the rifles are constantly being improved and are popular among German and Norwegian biathletes. "The Germans called us after the World Championships to thank us for our excellent rifles," he told Ria Novosti.

Priceless

Were the Russians using the far superior Annies? Also, was she the only competitor to have a MF with the superior German rifle? The Russians would probably been better off using one of the old "Vostok" rifles anyway. Vewwy intewesting, inquiring minds would like to know! Thanks.

The Mirror

midwest swiss:

Great find, loved the article.

But, I have to ask, do you subcribe to DER SPIEGEL (The Mirror)?

What brought your attention to the article?

I went on the E-net looking for some list or something showing that
allot of Russian shooters have won plenty of medals in the Olympics
using there own rifles. Then I found this article on the Biathlon
match last winter. I was going to post it in the CZ forum, but thought I should
just drop that Idea & posted it here. We just don't get no respect. LOL

Well Swiss,

Being as we both are CZ and Russian rifle owners, and we both know how well both brands shoot, all I can say is SCREW 'EM if they get offended. Post away dude....I have your back. Well, I'll be a few blocks away but....

Maybe we should draw a picture of a CZ with a bomb strapped to it's receiver? That'll show 'em!


Anyhoo....I know that the Biathlon is a challenging sport but apparently it gets pretty rough according to this video.

I wonder if Marc Shepard over at Altius can make me a new stock for my RPG?

Well I have not tried a Izhmash in a few years so I don`t know how much as changed but they are certainly the minority on the Biathlon World Cup Circuit although some top athletes do choose to use them.

The news article claims that many Norwegian athletes use the Izhmash and I have never witnessed this and doubt I ever will.

To boot the Russian athlete who`s rifle failed to fire now has a life time ban from competing in the Olympics or World Cups I believe this is the second time she has tested positive in her sporting career.

I do however think the Izhmash makes a fine target rifle or sporter.

Prairiekid,

The new Izhmash Chess biathlon rifle is slated to change all the calculus of the sport for the Russians.
And, perhaps, for others as well.
The Chess may cause you to change your opinion - a little.

Izhmash "CHESS" BI-7-4 ver. 09 ... Russia's Counter-Challenge to ANSCHÜTZ in Biathlon
Cold Tested Barrels

By the way, good to see you posting again - aom22.
