SHOT Show 2019 – The Chiappa Firearms Double Badger line of combination guns welcomes a new entry this year with the launch of a .243 Winchester - .410 gauge variant that is also the first in the series to feature a centerfire barrel
The Chiappa Firearms Double Badger is a classic, well-designed, break-barrel combination gun conceived for hunting, survival, outdoors, training, leisure shooting, or as a youth training firearm.
A simple, very intuitive working system and a sturdy construction make the Chiappa Firearms Double Badger combination rifle a very appealing choice for those shooters looking for a fun gun that is light on your shoulder and on your wallet.
New for 2019, Chiappa Firearms introduces a .243 Winchester - .410 gauge variant of the Double Badger combination gun, marking the first centerfire entry in the series, considering how all previous installments of the design featured either a .22 Long Rifle or .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire rifled barrel and either a .410 gauge or 20 gauge smoothbore barrel.
In its new .243 Winchester top rifled barrel embodiement, the Chiappa Firearms Double Badger combination gun will offer superior effectiveness over bigger prey, resulting even more appealing to avid hunters and outdoorsmen, while still providing solid short-range knockdown power and versatility with its bottom .410 gauge smoothbore barrel.
The Chiappa Firearms Double Badger combination rifle is built a machined, color case-hardened steel receiver and mounts two over-and-under blued steel barrels. Each barrel comes with its own extractor and is fired independently via its own trigger. A top tang sliding safety is located at convenient thumb reach.
The Chiappa Firearms Double Badger comes with a checkered semi-gloss beech stock and handguard, featuring sling rings, and offers a fixed fiber-optic front sight, an adjustable Williams fiber-optic rear sight, and a 3/8" dovetail for optics.
The Chiappa Firearms Double Badger .243 Winchester - .410 gauge combination gun is 37.65" (914 mm) long overall in its ready-to-fire configuration, and weighs 6.25 lbs (2.4 kg) when empty, offering solidity and stability.
When not in use, the Chiappa Firearms Double Badger can be folded down to a mere 21.20 inch (538 mm) of overall length, turning into a vastly more compact package for convenient and effortless carry in a backpack or a hand luggage, or in case you need it to occupy less space in your gun safe. It can not fire when folded.
