Well good to know before I impulse buy then
yeah Chiappa stuff gets muddy because I believe they are both a manufacturer and a distributor. That .22lr M1 Carbine is actually a Citadel, and it's a horrible turd. edit: Most of it is made of plastic, and not even good plastic, but flexy unstable plastic. The rear sight, its base, and the rail (rails on an M1 carbine lol) it sits on are all plastic and, on the one I messed with, you can push the rear sight back and forth with light finger pressure. Front sight's lovely plastic, too. So's the barrel shroud/bayo lug, upper receiver, magazines and release, and a bunch more.

Also to people fawning over the cut-down pistol gripped 1887, Taylor's & Co. will be selling one soon like that but case hardened with wood furniture instead of black with synthetic. Expected price is ~$850 iirc

Does Chiappa actually make things that are acceptably good? I thought they were pushin' the Keltec zone of 'cool concept, terrible execution' but that might just be from the Rhino
Chiappa built their name primarily on their cowboy and black powder guns, which are generally somewhere between "fine" and "pretty drat good." It's when you get into their more unorthodox or modern designs that I get a bit leery. They're good at reproducing old things, and not so hot when they're making new designs.

I too must hear everything. We have a wheelgun thread for this.

I like what they did there. Bigger grip, better hammer, wide trigger?
Basically. Bigger and slightly more vertical 1860-sized brass grip frame with checkered walnut grips, lowered Bisley-shaped hammer, wider 1/4" trigger that's set farther back in the guard, squared sights, nice beveled cylinder edges, and so on. Not sure what's going on inside in terms of springs and fitting and such. A review in the magazine Guns of the Old West called it "one of the best 'out of the box' competition guns that I've used in a CAS match." Apparently they were a pretty instant hit with the CAS crowd as a whole. I really want to try one!

I looked at two of these Mossberg rifles at Cabela's. Both had off-center fitting. Also I talked to the guy behind the counter and he said he couldn't even get a PMAG to fit in theirs. Also also yeah the action isn't very amazing. I dunno, it's a neat gimmick, but I'd pass.

I looked at the instructions on Marble's website (scroll down towards the bottom), and it looks like it's doable if you have the right tools and decent manual dexterity so in my case I would totally take it to a gunsmith to get it done.
I'd never done anything like this before but I had a drill press handy, so I bought a drill press vice and a cheap bit & tap set and decided to try it myself



It really wasn't too hard, just sloooow with a whole hell of a lot of "am I sure that's where I want it? Really, super sure? Positive? Okay, I guess I'll mark it with the punch now... gently caress, am I sure that's where I wanted it? Better remeasure everything"

Where do you place your thumb when firing that? It's a .22 so you don't need thumb leverage, it just seems weird to have that mount right where a thumb would normally go. Definitely a cool setup regardless.
I hold all (non pistol gripped) longarms with my thumb resting on the side of the stock pointing forward, not wrapped around it. It's especially important with that rifle, since it's my competition levergun: with your thumb resting on the side of the stock, the gun is much easier to lever quickly than with your thumb wrapped around.

Just an aside, but I really hate it when people use the expression "pull the trigger" about making a decision to buy a gun. For example, saying something like:

Got a few bucks to spend soon hopefully, so gotta make a decision on my next gun. Here are the top contenders.


Daewoo K2/AR-100/DR200: sweet-rear end Korean rifle. AR-style controls/bolt/magazines, AK-style piston/carrier, side folding stock, right side charging handle. These feel boss as hell and I've always loved them.


Sites 'Spectre' pistol: my current favorite quirky-rear end subgun. SA/DA with decocker (because Italians love condition 2), 30 or 50 round quad stack coffin magazines, a fully shrouded barrel and muzzle, and a bolt designed to push air across the barrel to keep the gun cool. So weird, so excellent. Leaning towards this one.


SBR'd vz.61 Skorpion: I owned a Skorp before and I would feel kinda dumb buying another, but I always intended to SBR my first one. These are pretty dang fun to shoot.

Yeah they exist in such small quantities that a stock assembly tends to sell for as much as the gun itself. Not realistic. The foregrip, however, is just $35!

Dead Reckoning posted:

Sample size of one and all, but my buddy brought his snubbie Rhino on a range trip and it was real awful. Trigger was gritty, and something in the mechanism kept binding, causing he trigger and cylinder to seize up. Magnum loads were incredibly unpleasant, but I expected that. He told me he was planning to use it as a night stand gun, I really hope he didn't.
When you talk about Rhinos it's important to clarify how old it is. They've undergone a revision and the new ones, which can be differentiated from the old ones because new ones have cylinders cut for moon clips, seem much nicer, especially with regards to the trigger. I'd be very wary of buying a used one that you can't check its serial number or cylinder first to see if it's the revised model.
