Well, our old buddy Hickok45 is back and does he have a treat for us, a new rifle by Chiappa firearms- the 1892 LEVER-ACTION ALASKAN TAKE DOWN RIFLE, chambered in 44 Remington Magnum. From what we can see in the video, not only does it cycle very smoothly, it’s accurate as all get out!
While I’m not a big fan of pistol caliber rifles, from what I seen, it does do the job (hitting the target) very nicely and after all, that’s what really counts right? Beneath the video I’ll put the specs on this rifle so that you can check them out for yourself.
Here is a little bit about the Chiappa Firearms Company:
The history of Chiappa Firearms began in 1958, when Ezechiele (Oscar) Chiappa opened his company and called it Armi Sport. Initially an artisanal workshop, the company has grown over the years to become an industrial group, still wholly owned by the Chiappa family.
Chiappa includes the companies Chiappa Firearms S.r.l. (defense, sporting and replica firearms), KIMAR (blank and signal guns), ACP (training systems), Costa S.r.l. (surface treatment of metals) and Chiappa Firearms USA, Ltd. (USA’s distribution center). The success story of the Chiappa derives from a combination of factors, among which are a great technical experience matured over 60 years; ability, the courage and entrepreneurial spirit of the President Rino Chiappa, and the total dedication to work of the whole Chiappa family.
