Default Chiappa Double Badger

Who's got one? Thoughts? I'm looking at the 22 mag/410. I was thinking about the 22 mag/20 ga but it appears they've halted production on it.

I have one, 22/410 and like most of my guns I haven't shot it. It is very well made, tight to open, looks European. Much more substantial than the new savage 42 and a good price compared to existing o/u. I don't like the looks of the opening lever but it works just fine. It folds (sort of) not enough to make it really packable. I read somewhere that the hinge bolt was removed and replaced with a pin that could be removed to break it down for packing. The accuracy reviews I have read are pretty good for this type of gun. I think I got it from either Buds or Sportsmans guide. Sights seem decent, probably better than most.

I have the Little Badger; if the quality is the same, they aren't much. I was able to "file" the shelf to smooth it out so the barrel would completely latch by using an emrey board. The metal is as soft as pot metal, in my opinion.

"and like most of my guns I haven't shot it."

Thank you, I feel better about being in the same situation!

I had one in .22 lr over .410. It was accurate enough. It did not fold completely in half. It was finicky about ammo. For some reason, the Aguila ammo would suffer light primer strikes and not fire. CCI worked well enough. For a "survival" firearm, it must be reliable with ammo. So I sold mine. (No problems with .410 shells.).

Cool, it's a nice shotgun, I'd have to be shooting it, if it were mine!

The gun that sits by my chair is my krieghoff 16x16 over 7x57R. The parker is usually in the safe unless I just want to shoot it.
