My brother has one of the 1886 45/70s it’s not a bad gun and as accurate as you can shoot it

I own their version of a 1911 .22 pistol I used on the line.I wouldn't buy another.Does it shoot?Yes.But it jams at least once every 8 rounds.I attribute it to the plastic magazine,its single stacked of course but very sloppy,your rounds are not neatly stacked but somewhat staggered.I know the store I bought it from told me they had lots of returns due to stoppages.After I bought the pistol they came out with a .22 rifle modeled after the M1 carbine.I looked at one and saw the plastic magazine and looked no further.This was some years ago and I see their now into rifles,maybe they've got things together and have better quality than mine.

Won a lil badger 22 at a trapper thing.
Came with a useless scope. I inquired about sights,
they are plastic. I put on a red dot.
The receiver is aluminum. Plastic / fiber picatinny rails.
The open site model comes with a back pack carrier.

Have a 22/410, its a little ungainly levering it open to load but its decently accurate and so far goes bang everytime.

I have a lil badger 22. Primarily as a dispatch gun. Fairly accurate, I put a red dot on it for longer shots.

Cheap in Italian is "Economico". Chiappa actualy means "butt" or " backside" laugh

I got one 22mag over 410.
Great gun for the line-potted tons of grouse with it and killed some fur(fox cats beaver) with it also. Love the fibre optic peep sight on it.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I've got a Double Badger in .22lr/.410
It's a fun little gun and fairly accurate but not practical here for much


Just happy to be here.
