Russian Coach gun

I have just been given a 12ga coach gun. I was wondering if you all could help me with identification.

The only markings I can see are;

Made in Russia
KBI INC HBG PA: I assume this is KBI imports in Harrisburg PA
Then on the bottom of the receiver there is a NK-43 ( I think its NK, its probably Cyrillic).

This gun needs some TLC. Does anyone have any clue as to what it is, how much its worth and how to disassemble it?

Thanks!

.....and im dumb. The brand is on the butt stock...Baikal. D'oh.

Well, I guess the last two questions are still valid.

BBV = $300, +/-

Check it's empty, close, activate latch & remove forend via swinging the front down/away from the barrels, then break it open & unhook barrels from the action.

Great, thanks!

It looks like it might have been stored in a fish tank.

Break it down by using the latch underneath the foreend to remove the barrels from the receiver. You may remove the stock by unscrewing the recoil pad and with a regular screwdriver loosen the stock bolt/screw to gain access to the internals


They're worth $300 or so in excellent condition.
Shoots only 70mm, or 2-3/4" shellsâ–¬no 3" magnums

they really are good guns. Much more durable and reliable than any freakin' Stoeger coach gun. They're a joke...
