Cannot think of one.
Trigger, grip, balance (muzzle heavy), accuracy.
I shot the Baikal IZH-46 and liked it, but since it is no longer made, I purchased the IZH-46M instead. I like the IZH-46 better than the 46M model, because it is not as muzzle heavy, and the cocking effort is easier. The IZH-46 is a joy to cock compare to the 46M. The trigger is a single stage, and it is not match quality. Trigger is OK, but I thought the Beeman P3 trigger is better. Even the Daisy 747 trigger is better. The grip is large and feels like a 2x4. The fit and finish is better than some of the Chinese made guns. But all this doesn't matter to me as much as the accuracy. The bottom line is "Can it shoot tight groups?" I was expecting a group size to be equal to or less than the Beeman P3 (Beeman Catalog advertise 0.20 inch group). After all, this gun does cost $100 more than the P3, and it is designed to be a 10-meter competition pistol. I didn't expect it to achieve one-hole group like the $1200 German pistols. I was disappointed.
