This repeating air rifle is so much fun to shoot, you'll definitely have a tough time putting it down. A spring-powered gun, the IZH 61 is easy to cock and can be used by adults and youngsters (with adult supervision).

The trigger is adjustable for length of pull. The synthetic stock has a raised cheekpiece and the length of the stock is adjustable (31" to 33"). The rear sight is a fully adjustable notch. The front sight is hooded. Load five pellets into the removable clip (2 clips included), insert it, cock the sidelever and start having fun!

You can add a red dot sight on the 11mm dovetails to get even more accuracy from this rifle. Speaking of accuracy...you won't outgrow the potential of this gun! The accuracy of the hammer-forged steel barrel is pretty close to what you'll get on a super-expensive Olympic target rifle. Yeah, it's THAT good!

This is my absolute fave. rifle for 10 meter target or closer. With a Bug Buster scope, I can ALWAYS make one-inch or smaller groups. I am truly looking forward to being able to try at 50-100 feet. Anyone know what 'knurling' is? Glad you asked. When you make a 'cut' into metal or plastic, straight down, not slicing away the material, you DISPLACE the material on either side of the 'cut'. By carefully making four, or better yet EIGHT equally spaced cuts on the SKIRT side of the clips, you effectively make the opening just a TAD bit smaller. Just remember you are NOT cutting the material AWAY, but just cutting straight down INTO the plastic. This is TIME INTENSIVE, and you must pay close attention that you are just pressing hard enough to make the cut, or really a depression, but done properly, the pellets WILL NOT FALL OUT! So, go buy some extra magazines, make the cuts... CAREFULLY... then load 'em up and go outside with a pocket full of FUN!
VERY, VERY accurate for the price. And SO EASY to cock that it is GREAT for kids to learn proper gun etiquette. And it won't tire-out mom or dad for all day fun!!! I really like that I can shoot FIVE times before reloading with a clip. This rifle is a GREAT match for using a Bug Buster scope. You'll need an adapter, from dovetail to weaver or the other one that I can't spell just now... hee hee. Be sure to use a QUALITY adapter rail, with AT LEAST three or more attachment screws. And be sure to tighten down the screws FIRMLY. The rifle has a HUGE recoil (I think) compared to, say, my NP2 .22, and something will GIVE if you use cheap metal rails or an inexpensive scope/red-dot. This is a VERY nice rifle intended for target, NOT SQUIRREL, shooting. It will do the job on squirrels, rabbits, rats, but you need to be VERY proficient as to where the shot placement is for a HUMANE kill.
Just one for me - NO SAFETY! But I can live with it.

Great and Accurate Shooter !!!
April 26, 2015
After some getting used to and finally getting scope sighted in, this rifle puts the pellet where you want it. Shooting off a bench rest at 10 meters you can take out the center of the target every time. The stock has to be extended to the fullest for me.

One accurate little rifle!
December 19, 2014
Looks very cool. Despite all of the plastic, gun seems to be sturdy. As others have said, pellets will fall out of clip, unless you insert clip with barrel pointing down. Iron sights are very nice, but I am going to try a compact scope in the future. After cocking, make sure that lever is securely latched or else it will spring open and the pellet will jam. Really like the ability to shoot without reloading after each shot. For me, I think this really helps in the accuracy department. Gun is light enough for me to accurately shoot without a bench rest.
Very accurate. A dime can cover all 5 shots at 10 yards with open sights. Light weight. Great trigger. Easy to cock and load. Very quiet.

This little rifle shoots like a dream. Quite a value from AGD too.
Solid yet light-weight construction. Accurate even with the crappy stock sights. Love the convenience of the 5-round clips (you get two).
The stock rear sight is adequate at best. Get a Williams if you want to drive tacks.

May 27, 2013
Its everything I thought it would be. Accurate, easy to use despite the somewhat complicated load and shoot procedure. Seems like a very well engineered system though. My ten year old son was shooting 3/8" bulls from 20' away pretty consistently after 1 1/2 hours of first time shooting the 61. I attached a Gamo 3-7 power scope which helped with the accuracy. The scope rail on the 61 is not parallel enough with the barrel even with the scope adjusted all the way ,so we had to aim 3" below the bullseye to hit dead center bull, but even with that it has pretty good accuracy. I would like to attach a scope to the guns barrel. I think that would greatly improve consistent accuracy.
Not much cocking effort, accurate, light weight.
Pretty much the same issues everyone else has,pellets fall out of clip if your not tilting your barrel down as your loading,no safety, scope rail needs to be improved.

A Great Russian Rifle
April 6, 2013
This rifle is light, accurate, and practical. Do your homework to get used to the operation of the rifle. The hammer forged rifle barrel produces superior accuracy. For me, the rifle makes sense. Don't underestimate this plastic looking pellet gun. It is made in a real armament factory. Buy it now!
Relatively accurate Light weight Well constructed Fun to shoot five shots in a row Easy to cock Adjustable stock
The manual need to rewrite and provide detail information so that customer don't need to go through what I went through. Since you can't see through the barrel, you need to have a .177 rod one hand to feel the barrel for pallet. Because the pallet always mysteriously disappear before you get used to the operation.

Deadly accurate ,but like all made in russia has non significant buts :)
December 11, 2012
My first impression when I received this rifle was "Back into UUSR" ;) There was oiled paper, packaging style, but the weapon looked nice and solid. When I took it out of the paper and held it, I didn't want to put it down. BTW I haven't received any spare spring, should I? It felt like it is a part of you. I'm not used to the spring rifles so it took me quite a number of rounds to get used to it's recoil. Out of the box, it was quite accurate but non zeroed at all. The trigger was very light and unpredictable so I decided first, I need to adjust the trigger and get use to the recoil. Piece of advice guys, don't try to zero it before you adjusted the trigger. You will have quite a bunch of flyers, well at least I did :) I managed to make a half inch groups consistently so I decided to zero it. Elevation took 2-3 clips on big target and quite a bunch of rounds on official 10 meters (32.8 feet) air rifle target which has 1 inch black diameter. I tried to zero it so I could shoot under the black area and get the half inch elevation to be dead in the center. Now windage is very tough to achieve with these screws and moving the plate manually. Considering that this gun is very unforgiving for zeroing in, it took quite a bit time to achieve the windage and I'm still not very happy with it to be honest. When you tighten the screws trying to hold the plate that you wanted to move by millimeter left or right and not to move it slightly more, is like mission impossible. Or I'm doing it wrong. But I still couldn't get the perfect windage for precise target shooting. The rifle is very comfy to handle but it has one small disadvantage that's not significant for accuracy and shooting abilities that ruins it all. Pellets are falling out of the clip :) Makes usage of the clips anywhere other than on the table useless. Such small things ruins it all. You have to hold the gun in barrel down position and clip, so that the pellets won't fall. You can't put the clips into the pocket and go to the range etc. Again small thing but ruins all comfy from having the indexed clip and handle that you need just cock ones to get the spring and pellet loaded. Very comfy if clips won't fall. Also quite a big number of times the clips get stuck in the pocket when loading and you have to push pellets back to un-jam them. Manual is like all the manuals in Russia that I knew :) Even in Russian it is a comedy book and not the Manual :) But I was born there so ... :) Take A put on B the drag C and if you lucky F will hit G :) If not, take a big hammer and give it a good hit :) Then don't forget that you have a limited warranty ;) Anyway the rifle is self explanatory enough for anyone to realize how to handle it. Well, I think I will have to deduce how to oil it properly in the future but I still have 800 hundred rounds for that to come :) Besides that excellent rifle.
Deadly accurate. Very comfy except the falling pellets during loading. You won't like to put it down, it feels so good when you hold it.
Pellets fall out of the clip. Windage adjustment is awfully hard. Manual is very confusing.

excellent gun
December 17, 2010
There are a few inaccuracies here. The trigger position is not adjustable anymore but the first and second stages are adjustable. The trigger is also extremely light. Also I found the stock is much more adjustable than stated. if you unscrew the stock adjustment knob and put the nut it goes in in the second position you can get around 4 more inches of adjustment. Polymer stock is solid weapons grade polymer. Barrel is amazing. sights are right on after you adjust them to your eyes enabling you to put consecutive shots in the same hole over and over. The gun just feels right in my hands. I don't want to put it down. The only problem it has is the clips. If you aren't careful loading them the pellets will fall right out. The gun is in fact imported from Russia. The box and instruction manual were both in English and Russian. I kept them both for the novelty of it. This gun truly shames "Made in America" It's the best in my collection which has rifles from all over the world. It definitely shames my best English, Spanish, and Italian rifles on and off the ranges.

Holy targets, batman!
May 24, 2010
This was a great gun from the first time I held it. After a bit of practice, which was fun, I got olympic grade accuracy out of the gun with a diopter rear sight replacing the rear open sight. I was also able to rip through a clip with the light cock weight with ease. The clip needs a bit of redesign so the pellets don't fall out. My solution was to widen the skirt on the pellet with a pellet device I picked up somewhere designed to do that. The dove tail on it also works well with a crosman reflex sight for speed shooting if you rotate the front sight 180 degrees. It's a fairly universal competition rifle that can stand toe to toe with a more expensive rifle and not be found wanting.

i got to say this gun is great! at first i thought it was a little ugly but boy can it shoot! the rifle is so accurate that my old folks who never shoot guns love it they can already hit a bullseye at 11 yards and they are already ordering another one for themselves. so if you want a gun that is dead accurate and has good power this is the gun for you! the only thing i do not like is the look so much but after you have it for a while it will become the best pellet gun for anything!!!

After shooting this gun for a while, and a few others I have recently purchased, the IZH61 is the first gun I reach for. Accurate and well made. Best I've seen yet. BUY IT.

Hidden Jewel
August 2, 2007
IZH-61 I was away from airgun shooting for almost 40 years (England 1960"s). The little Russian was the first airgun I bought several years ago upon returning to the hobby. Thirty some airguns later it continues to be a favorite. Its design is brilliant. A five-shot that loads each pellet into the breach. A barrel that is almost as accurate as a $2,000 Olympic target rifle. It is called a youth airgun by some, well, at fifty something I love it. I may trade other airguns I have collected but not this one. The IZH61 is far to much fun to ever part with. If you do not own an IZH61 you might want to get one. I doubt that they will be made forever. My teen daughter has no problem cocking at the shoulder never dropping a bit. Have not chronoed but at 10 meters (length of my basement) little further in back yard has plenty of speed for target or plinking. Shoot safe and do not loose sight of this frequently forgotten bargain. Some think it is ugly but I respectfully disagree. Ray I just wish it came as a .22 as well:)
