1886 Ridge Runner Rifle Matte Black
Product Review (submitted on December 26, 2016):
I bought my 1886 about six months ago. I wanted a 45-70 and had my mind made up to purchase a marlin sbl. A friend of mine that owns the gun store that I buy all of my firearms from suggested the Chiappa 1886. He said that I would pay more for it up front but if I bought the marlin, I would want to make some changes that would require a gunsmith and more money. He said that if I bought the Chiappa i would be happy with it out of the box. So i bought it, keep in mind that I had never seen it in person by-the-way. When it came in and he took it out of the box to run through the details with me I was stunned at how gorgeous it was ( stainless steel). It was downright sexy. Then I shot it. OMG, smooth, balanced, solid and consistently accurate. It was not what I expected, IT IS MUCH MORE!!!!
